Do you have a 'Holidays Drink'?
Mine's a Scotch Old Fashioned.
I just drink them around Christmas.

Rest of the year it's plain ol' Scotch 'n Soda.
...mud in your eye,
Baby do I feel high, oh me, oh my,
Do I feel high.

Dry martini, jigger of gin,
Oh, what a spell you've got me in; oh my,
Do I feel high.

People won't believe me, they'll think that I'm just braggin',
But I could feel the way I do, and still be on the wagon.

All I need is one of your smiles,
Sunshine of your eyes, oh me, oh my.
Do I feel higher than a kite can fly!
Give me lovin', baby, I feel high.


Oh wait...where was I?
Oh yeah.
So...do you have a holidays drink?

Rum balls and bourbon balls.
Gotta make some.

4. Alcohol - lots of it! (I also define "holidays" as 24/7/365.25)
I do lean more towards whiskey in the colder weather (which means < 60F around here)...
