The holidays are here and everyone's freaking out — as if we're all storming something more terrifying than the beaches of our own gluttony.
No, we’re storming the mall. And the liquor aisle. And the in-laws'.
To ensure you negotiate each with aplomb – or at least with a stiff drink – we present this: the first ever InsideHook Holiday Survival Guide Planner Book Thing (with gifts!).
Married with kids? Bachelor returning to the hearth? No matter, my nog-swilling brethren, the tips inside will help. A glimpse:
Rules for Running the Office Holiday Party
How to Navigate Someone Else's Family
Your Ten-Minute Amazon Prime Shopping Guide
It's all in there.
Now, that said, we realize the holidays aren't for everyone.
Just ask my mother, who – as if she had lost an election to vote Christmas out of office – is leaving the country this year for Mexico.
So we've also included a few tips about where to travel (aside from the bar) this season. You're welcome.
Now get out there.
Happy holidays, all ye mensches, princes and Father Christmases,
