A short list:
1. Yoga whenever I want.
2. Cocktails whenever I want.
3. Sleeping in as late as I want.
4. Going to the bathroom whenever I want.
5. Going to bed as late as I want.
6. Reading whatever I want.
Get the picture? It's all about me. No students, no coworkers, no grad classes...finally, for 11 days, I can turn the attention toward myself and just bliss out. For some, the holidays are about giving to others and being charitable. I do that all damn year. I am selfish at Christmas-time and I'm totally okay with that.
