It's the winter holidays and if you are hosting people you will likely have to pick some one up at the airport. In many of the most congested airports, the arrivals/baggage claim area is a madhouse. If you have ever been through New York then you understand you can sometimes spend 20 mins just trying to get through this area in your car. Instead of picking up at arrivals, pick people up at departures. Traffic in arrivals is slow because people are waiting on others to come out, whereas the opposite is true in departures, people are in and out. Try it out. My cousin is a flight attendant and I frequently pick her up from the airport and this tip can save you a couple of mins instead of waiting in traffic.
