There's nothing like the holidays. They bring out the best, and sometimes the worst, in everyone. 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 other holidays throughout the year, such as Mother's Day and Thanksgiving, 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. Now, whatever your age, whatever your tastes, whatever your pleasures, whatever your fates, let’s all agree on one thing today: Grabbing an occasional festive drink with your mom’s mom or your son’s son bridges boundaries and crosses divides. 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. And before you learned to twist off, she was guzzling brews. So when the holidays hit and the families combine, it’s time to bring out the punch bowl and time to have a good time. 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!

About the Author

Neil Pasricha gets stuck in traffic jams, eats entire tubs of ice cream in one sitting, and has terrible posture. He's just a regular guy who loves sneaking candy into movies, stomping dry crunchy leaves on sidewalks, and watching cream go into coffee.
 

Editorial Reviews

Praise for Neil Pasricha

"The guru of small joys."-The Toronto Star

"Pasricha emerges a committed but inviting optimist, combating life's unending stream of bad news by identifying opportunities to share a universal high five with humanity."-Publishers Weekly

"Neil Pasricha makes ordinary days light up with awesomeness."-Gretchen Rubin, #1 New York Times bestselling author of the The Happiness Project
  
"Ranging from laugh-out-loud funny to poignant (but not fluffy), Pasricha's compilation feels close to universally applicable…Pasricha doesn't mandate a way to live well. In many simple ways, he just reminds us we already do."-The Huffington Post
