Surviving the holidays

One way to survive the holidays is to wallow in them. Embrace them. Absorb every sweet, sticky second of December. Forget the stress of bargain hunting, trying to find a parking place in Short Pump or baking your famous fruitcakes.

Instead, crank the car radio and sing along with the carols, slurp some eggnog and have a holly jolly time.
