Yuletide Joy. Time to celebrate by exchanging gifts with your family and closest friends, smiling politely, of course, when you discover grandma didn't follow your list and instead wrapped up a hand-knit sweater just for you.

So, dig into those stockings, enjoy time spent with family, and reach out to give a helping hand on this joyous day. Merry Christmas.
