After getting through security, travelers are greeted with a chorus of holiday classics -- including "Rudolph the Red Nose Reindeer" and "Jingle Bell Rock." The karaoke machine is prominently displayed on a small but festive stage.

Since holiday travel can be frustrating, the airport decided to bring karaoke to the terminal, hoping to ring in some holiday cheer during long layovers and weather delays.

"The goal is to make our customers who are coming through the airport relaxed," Caroline Riera-Schneider, IAH customer service manager wrote on its Web site (http://www.fly2houston.com/0/1358491/0/1906D1934/). "They're stressed. They're on overload and we want to say come, sing a song and have some fun and enjoy your trip."
