As you sit down to enjoy some time off this holiday season, remember there are a few industries, like trucking, that never take a break. While others celebrate with family and friends, there are fleets of long-haul drivers kicking things into high gear to make the holidays happen.
It’s easy to forget where our goods come from and how they get to us. But almost anything you’ve ever bought—food, clothes, toys, electronics was delivered on a truck. As you prepare shopping lists and head out to stores where the shelves and freezers are stocked, take a moment to consider we’d have very little if it weren’t for truckers. In fact, trucks are the only vehicles that run more miles than Santa’s sleigh!
We should all help spread some holiday cheer to these important workers who make it all happen. While they may not be wearing Santa hats, they are truly the ones driving Christmas and all the holiday traditions your family enjoys.
So, during the next couple of weeks, if you pass a truck driver on the road, be sure to wave a thank you to them. They really do deserve it!
