I'm always sick with worry over whether or not I got my mom the right size, if my sister will like the sweater I knit her, or -- for heaven's sake! -- will my brother appreciate the socks I bought him?! So in my house, the holidays are just another excuse to drink -- and I'll bet it's the same in your house, too.
