Even if the holiday sucks this year, you are among a legion of people who have survived sucktacular holidays. And if you have to have a sucktacular holiday, at least you’re doing it in the Olympic suck year of 2020. You’re not alone.

Back to regular blogging on Monday. Happy holidays! And here’s to a new year! — Tracy
