Luckily, Neil Pasricha is here to remind us that not only are the holidays great but there''s actually even more to celebrate than we realize. From Christmas, Hanukkah, and Kwanzaa to such holidays as Mother''s Day and Father''s Day, Thanksgiving, and beyond, The Book of (Holiday) Awesome will show you why holidays are . . . AWESOME!

Read from the Book

Drinking with Grandma It’s time for some intergenerational egg nogging. Get ready to light the Yule log, sail the gravy boat, and get your eighty-five pound grandmother a sloshy glass of rummy nog.

Once upon a time, your Grandma used to boogie. Once upon a time, your Grandma threw it down. Yes, I’m saying before you danced on tables, she danced on them too.

Because we’re not here forever and we’re not here very long. We don’t get many chances, so toss one back before Granny’s gone. I never knew my grandparents, but I heard stories they were great . . . so I know if they were here we’d party hard before it got too late. AWESOME!
