It’s that time of year when many of us gather around the table and give thanks for family, friends, health, happiness, and most importantly, that heaping slice of pumpkin pie we’re going to enjoy later. But something we often forget to be thankful for is, well, ourselves. Each of us possesses unique perspectives, talents, and gifts… READ MORE »

The phrase “holiday travel” instantly conjures up images of endless lines, delayed flights, cranky babies, and even crankier adults. We know that taking a trip during the hectic holiday season will never be the easiest endeavor, but there’s no reason you can’t make the experience a bit less hellish, and a bit more fabulous (yes, really!).

Thanksgiving is a lovely time of year to not only see distant family and beloved friends, but also dredge up decades-old resentments. A famous familial bugaboo is who helps clear the table/wash plates/Saran Wrap the leftovers and who sits on their ass, pretending to be paralyzed by a food coma. (Of course, food coma person… READ MORE »

Stuffing is absolutely my favorite Thanksgiving food, followed closely by super creamy mashed potatoes.

It’s easy enough to find basic recipes for stuffing and mashed potatoes, but if you’d like to try something a little different… READ MORE »

Black Friday is a uniquely American consumerist faux “holiday” that I will never understand. Do millions of people really want to endure screaming toddlers and hordes of teenagers at the mall just so they can buy an Old Navy fleece for 20 percent off? No, thanks.

But for the retail workers who have… READ MORE »

You didn’t know you had a dessert stomach, did you? Well, you don’t. But it would come in handy for Thanksgiving dinner if you did. I mean, where are you supposed to put the pumpkin pie after you’ve eaten so much stuffing? Sigh. I guess we’ll just have to eat less so there’s room for… READ MORE »

We’re reaching the point of the year wherein I refuse to leave my bed at any and all costs because it is so damn cold. There unfortunately aren’t too many upsides to late fall as far as I’m concerned, aside from pretty scarves, outerwear, and, like, wool tights, but none of these things are enough… READ MORE »

Thanksgiving is just around the corner, which means in between gorging on pumpkin pie and crying in the bathroom about something terrible your uncle said, it’s time to give thanks for the multitude of blessings in our lives. We’re pretty good about being grateful for all the usual suspects–health, family, career–but sometimes we overlook all… READ MORE »

Dan Savage suggests fucking before dinner. And yeah, that’s probably the best policy when it comes to huge holiday meals like Thanksgiving or Christmas dinner.

If you loved Rebecca Black’s “Friday” but felt like it was missing a mashed potato-themed rap and a turkey leg microphone, well, here you go.

Is it already Christmas where you live? It seems December 25 comes earlier and earlier each year. As a Jew, I kind of love it, because hello, cookies, pine tree smell and holiday carols. But as a critic of capitalism, it’s kind of the worst. Apparently this cake was made by a disgruntled bakery employee… READ MORE »

I’m not sure I’ve ever felt anything quite like the relief I experienced after my last class before Thanksgiving break. It was noon on Wednesday – the day before Thanksgiving itself – and it seemed like everybody else had left except for me.
