Blame it on the Ho-Ho-Ho-Ho-Ho-Holidays

Chocolate for breakfast and champagne in the office? Oh yes, please!

We’re given certain all sorts of allowances around the holidays and aren’t we so glad! Behaviors that would never be considered socially acceptable are not only accepted, but are expressly encouraged during the holiday season. Gee, it really is the most wonderful time of the year!

Move over kiddies, we grownups are ready to get this ho-ho-holiday started right!

Let’s examine the totally awesome behaviors that the holidays make more than OK!
