There, and back again.

Help us out with the logistics of flying round-trip from NYC (LGA/JFK/EWR) to Minneapolis-St. Paul (MSP) for Christmas. We'd like this to be as aggravation-free as possible.

My girlfriend and I have both done plenty of flying, but I've never flown during a major holiday. I've heard nothing but horror stories and I hate airport-brand aggravation, so I want to make this as easy as possible.
We'll be flying out sometime between the evening of Thursday 12/20 and Friday 12/21 and flying sometime on Tuesday 12/25 (I have to be back at work on 12/26.) These dates on non-negotiable; we can't leave any sooner and we can't come back any later.
So what's the best way to minimize airport horror and maximize time spent with family? Are there any airlines we should avoid? Are any of the NYC airports better than the others for Christmas?
