Holidays seem to bring out the best, and sometimes the worst, in everyone. That's precisely why Neil Pasricha reminds us here that not only are the holidays great, but there's actually even more to celebrate than we realize. From Christmas and Hanukkah to other holidays throughout the year, Pasricha accentuates the positive with his sly meditations on the pleasure of just barely wrapping gifts with the last scraps of paper, racking up Scrabble points with "Kwanzaa," and celebrating the departure of the in-laws. Here too are simple old-fashioned pleasures like waking up on Christmas morning, finding that last year's lights still work, and making the first footprint in new snow.
