Welcome to European Tribune. It's gone a bit quiet around here these days, but it's still going.
I'm taking the train home for Christmas.  The train is $70 roundtrip (that's including a business class upgrade, it's $42 coach) whereas the cheapest flight I found was for $182.

It is slower, of course, but I can also get a lot done on a train.  And the station is about a block from my family's home whereas the airport, with holiday congestion, is about a 45 min drive.
