Tis the busiest travel season of the year, and all through the country, airports are stirring like crazy.

To celebrate the holidays and make the often-stressful travel process a little easier, airports from Phoenix to Tampa are decorating their terminals with symbols of the season. The Blue Sky staff collected some photos that show just how they’re getting into the holiday spirit.

On November 20, Tampa International Airport shared photos of its decorations writing, “The tree is up, and it’s starting to look like Christmas up in here! GET EXCITED!”

At Evansville Regional Airport in Indiana, local nonprofits are competing in the airport’s second annual tree-decorating contest, the “Festival of Trees.”

Last week, Phoenix Sky Harbor posted photos of its airport therapy dogs, the Navigator Buddies, dressed in festive costumes to kick off the holiday season.

Orlando International Airport shared a time-lapse video of crews putting together its tree last week.

At Chicago’s O’Hare International, the airport has hosted several holiday musical performances in the terminal.

Airport crews worked to decorate the Airside and Landside Terminals at Pittsburgh International Airport in November, which included placing a 60-foot tree in the airport’s Center Core area.
