Pattern Description:

At some point every year during the holiday season, I can hold out no longer, and I succumb. The holiday spirit wins. Some years it happens the day after Thanksgiving. Others it isn't until a few days before Christmas. Either way, there comes a time when you need to be surrounded by friends and family with a hot beverage in your hand, a goofy hat on your head, and a readiness to jump to Santa's aid, if ever he calls.
