Top Five Tips for a Happy Holiday

Here are our tips for having a wonderful holiday. It's what we do every year, so it must work!

  1. Have high expectations. Plan every detail of your holidays, tense up, and if anyone messes up, yell “This is the worst holiday EVER!”
  2. Overspend. Buy people gifts that you can’t afford. Leave the price tags on them also, so they know what price you paid for their unconditional love.
  3. Eat everything. Food is love, and there’s no better way to love yourself than to stuff your face. So go ahead, eat those cookies, and mashed potatoes, and cheesecake, and stuffing, and pie, and figgy pudding, and…
  4. Drink and be merry. Be sure to indulge in lots of alcoholic beverages. When you do this, remember to call, text message, and Facebook the people you care about. The only thing better than drunk dialing is “Frunk Dacebooking!”
  5. “It’s the holidays.” Use this as your catch phrase for all of your behavior. Why aren’t you exercising? Why are you obsessing? Why are you doing all of the above? Because! It’s the holidays.

So there you have it. Let us know how these tips help you to have a happy holiday!
