Perhaps you received too many Apple products. Perhaps you received an insufficient number of Apple products and risk being drummed out of the local chapter of your Apple product society. Perhaps the spirit of Steve Jobs’ recently impounded yacht will haunt your dreams tonight; that is a matter for your conscience.
Perhaps everyone you know bought you a candle. If you are a survivalist; all to the good. Pack them in your survivin’ shelter and wait for time to prove you right. If you are not a survivalist, find a way to make peace with the fact that no one really knows you; no one even bothered to pretend to know you. More

How badly were the home alone burglars injured? A medical expert explains. More
I’m a huge fan of all sorts of booze (if you read my articles frequently, you probably already know this and are rolling your eyes in a pitying way), so the holidays are one of my favorite times because everybody gives you booze. Everybody! Friends, coworkers, neighbors…you always wind up with a ton of bottles of stuff way before Christmas. So why not put some of that to use with a few great recipes for holiday drinks? More

Normally, EIC Jennifer Wright and Ashley Cardiff would debate this important question about the holiday, but Ashley Cardiff is gone. Who knows where. Who knows why. (On holiday in Europe. Because of vacation days). Fortunately, Samantha Escobar was in the office this week. Watch her and Jennifer desperately try to convince themselves – and you – that “Baby It’s Cold Outside” isn’t a totally creepy song. More
As anybody who has ever worked in food service or retail knows, the holiday season sucks. They just completely and totally suck. You’re overworked, probably underpaid, everybody tips you less because they’re trying to save money — which is understandable but nonetheless very frustrating — and your bosses are constantly stressed out at you. Oh, and people will yell at you. For no reason. Just… no reason. You’ll smile sweetly because you have to, but inside, you will contemplate headbutting them with the strength of 1000 Guy Fieris. More
Ladies, step away from the candy canes. We’ve listened to the conservative chanting to put the Christ back in Christmas for so long, we didn’t realize how chauvinist the holiday has become. More
In some parts of Italy, most notably Marche, Umbria and Lazio, there is a female version of Santa Claus named La Befana. Do you know why she is better than Santa Claus?
Oh, I am here to tell you! More
In New York City we are so very lucky. How many opportunities present themselves in any other city that allow one to dress in some kind of trashy, obnoxious costume? One. Halloween.
New Yorkers have not only on Halloween, but for a magical holiday event called SantaCon. Do you think Saint Patrick’s Day is crazy? Forget it. According to NYPD officer “Chris”, SantaCon is the ultimate amateur event for drinkers.
“This is much worse than St. Paddy’s Day, it doesn’t stop. It just goes on all day and all night. It’s a city-wide event with specific zones and locations. We’re running around all day trying to corral these people.” More
It’s almost the holidays, you guys! Or, screw it: it’s almost Christmas. I’ll go into more detail next week about what my love of Christmas says about me, a Jew, but right now let’s talk about you. Specifically: what your favorite holiday time activity is, and what that says about you as a person. More
