Cracked Round-Up: Eye of the Holiday Storm Edition

Welcome, loyal Cracked-heads, to the most awkward time of the year! Thanksgiving and Halloween are in the bag, but we still have weeks to go before Christmas. There's only one way to make it through this mid-season slump, and that 'way' is roughly a gallon of alcoholic egg nog per day. It's the only way to stay drunk enough to handle hearing the same Christmas music piped over store speakers for days on end AND ensure that you don't suffer from nog cravings once the holidays are past. By January 1st, we'll be just sick enough to handle another eleven months of abstinence. Well, eggnog abstinence anyway.
