The holiday season is the time of the year where most people get the chance to take a step back from all the stresses in life to really just relax, enjoy, and appreciate who and what they have in life. 'Tis the night before Christmas, and we’re all extremely fortunate to visit our respective family and friends over the holidays.
With that being said, the things truckers do and the sacrifices they make often go underappreciated. Especially around this time of year, we want to make sure we take the time to properly thank truck drivers around the country.
Santa the Truck Driver?
Every Christmas Eve, everybody has their eyes peeled trying to catch a glimpse of Santa passing by in his sleigh. He works hard to get those presents delivered to everyone by Christmas morning. But what you probably haven't thought about is that you don't have to look hard to find somebody doing the same thing as Santa. Think about this: truck drivers and Santa actually have a lot in common, especially around this time of the year! I'm willing to bet that right now, Santa is busy going over his pretrip list and checking it twice to get ready for the big night. I'm also willing to bet that truckers are doing the same thing too.
Aside from using a tractor and trailer instead of a sleigh and reindeer, the two are almost indistinguishable in what they selflessly do for others. They both make sure we get what we need to enjoy our holidays as much as possible. Most of us will be with family and friends over the next few days and weeks, but many truckers just keep on rolling. They work year round to deliver the goods that people want and need. It’s especially hard and grueling to truck during the holidays with added deliveries and stresses of dealing with increased traffic and poor weather conditions on the road; but truckers have the responsibility to keep America going no matter what time of the year it is.
Thank You, Truck Drivers
Just like Santa, truck drivers sacrifice time with their families around the holidays to ensure people get the goods they need in a timely, efficient, and safe manner. It’s something that many of us couldn’t even imagine doing, yet they do it willingly so they can provide for themselves, their families, and the people of America. Without them, we wouldn’t be able to truly enjoy even the simplest of things when we’re spending time with our loved ones.
So thank you to all you truckers out there, who make the holiday season possible. Keep on rolling, have a very Merry Christmas, and a Happy New Year!
