I know the holidays can fill some with dread and terror. Long lines, having someone else take the last cream cheese danish at Starbucks ( and having it toasted so everyone can smell the rich creamy pastry deliciousness), and the angry drivers can make anyone hate the season of giving.

How do you savor the holidays?
