Here's Why You Should Avoid Traveling the Day After Christmas

  Here's Why You Should Avoid Traveling the Day After Christmas Seriously, do not book a flight on December 26. According to the experts at KAYAK, the fare aggregator and travel search site, it's the most expensive day of the entire year to fly domestically within the United States.Since Christmas falls on a Monday this year, KAYAK also predicts that flight prices will surge the Wednesday and Thursday beforehand as people build in a long weekend around the holiday. Our advice? Start your Christmas trip a little bit later this year-perhaps as late as Christmas Eve-and stay until December 28 or so to find the best fares.

2. Colour your coconut

Place shredded coconut and pink food colouring into a resealable bag. Seal, then shake until the coconut is evenly coloured. Tip: We use gel food colouring — it’s more concentrated, and the best way to colour the coconut effectively. All you need is a few drops to get the bright pink shade shown here.

3. Beat the frosting…

Combine frosting ingredients into a large metal bowl over a large pot filled with 1-in of simmering water. Beat with an electric mixer until sugar dissolves.
