Is traveling over Thanksgiving weekend as bad as everyone says?

Since I didn't move to the US until college, I don't have any attachment to Thanksgiving. Usually I get invited to a friend's house for dinner but since I have a little bit of vacation time saved up, I was thinking of tacking on 3-4 extra days around the holiday to actually go somewhere. Is it a bad idea to try and travel during thanksgiving weekend? I always hear horror stories about traveling then but I've never actually done it myself. Would flying out on Thursday be the least busiest day to travel? I'm in Seattle and would love to go somewhere in Europe for a quick trip. I'm thinking maybe Amsterdam, Copenhagen or maybe Paris but I'm open to suggestions! I've been to London, Madrid, Barcelona, Lisbon, Rome, Florence and Prague so I probably don't want to repeat those places.
