Eat, Drink, and Be Merry! OR ELSE.
You can't just carry your wine to the annual Biker And Rock Star Picnic. You've got to have a leather box, or everyone would laugh!
Sure, you've got problems. Work sucks, the bills are piling up, and the stress is starting to give you panic attacks. BUT YOU CAN'T BRING THAT STUFF UP RIGHT NOW BECAUSE IT'S THE HOLIDAYS AND YOU HAVE TO BE HAPPY OR YOU'RE A BIG MEAN JERK. Okay, fine. Nothing helps the holiday spirit along like a nice bottle to give, receive, share, or even better just keep to yourself.
