With less than a week to go till Christmas, you may be packing your bags to go see your loved ones or getting your home ready for guests to arrive. After all the holidays are a chance to spend more time with family.

This year AAA predicts a record-breaking 112.5 million travelers will hit the roads, take to the skies, or hop on a train to get to their destination in time for year-end festivities.  But a new survey by reveals most people don’t want to stay the night at their families’ house. The website which specializes in all things sleep related asked more than 1,700 Americans about their holiday travel plans and found that 65 percent did not want to sleep over at a relative’s home during the holidays.  Out of the 81% who said they’ll be visiting family, only 55 percent are actually looking forward to it.

Some of the reason’s for not wanting to stay over at a relatives home included people wanting to avoid uncomfortable sleep arrangements, insufficient space and not being able to watch TV on their own.

45 percent also anticipated family drama and arguments, while 12 percent of people surveyed said they wouldn’t like the food served during the holidays.
