Happy New Year, everyone! Are you floating into 2015 with glad tidings and good cheer, or are you stuck in a bah-humbug funk? If you're caught somewhere in between, you're not alone.
The holiday season is loaded with contradictions. You can seek mankind's better angels through family reunions, charitable works or personal inspiration, whatever form that takes. Or, you can get wasted at the office party, stagger into a big-box store at the crack of dawn, and get into a fistfight over a flat-screen TV.
