Holidays are about family, whether you see them everyday or once a year. Nonetheless, use the opportunity of today's gatherings to enjoy your time among those who share your last name or blood type. Put on a smile (and maybe a sweater) and try to learn more about your loved ones. Listen to grandma's stories. Laugh at your uncle's jokes. Reminisce with your weird cousin. Relate to your brothers and sisters. Help your parents in the kitchen. Talk to that guy in the corner who shows up every year (but no one knows why). Be present and pleasant today.
