The Holiday Survival Guide

December 2, 2013 9:00 am

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,
