“Holiday parties and inappropriate questions go hand in hand. What is it with these events that people feel at liberty to bring up the most personal issues?” Where You Going in That? host Bridgette Reas asks Melissa Leonard. The etiquette guru’s explanation? Alcohol’s to blame! “People drink at parties,” says Melissa. “They feel loose, they feel happy. Plus, they feel like, we’re all friends here. So they’ll often ask, ‘Where are you working?’ Then they’ll say, ‘Oh, you’re still there? Well, ah, you’ve been there for seven years. Is there a promotion in your future?’ In those cases, where someone’s just being nosey, keep your response simple, like, ‘Oh, I love my job. I’m good at what I do. And I’m really happy there.’ Or if they ask, ‘So, when are you going to have kids?’ make it fun. Tell them: “If we decide to have kids, you’ll be the first to know. We’ll invite you to the baby shower!”
Interior stylist Anna Brent is bent on making this holiday season not only memorable, but aesthetically pleasing. “You can give your home a cheerful and festive holiday update with easy-to-create crafts, says the Clips and Tips host, who also pens a furniture-shopping column for Examiner.com. “One great idea is to spruce up your dining table with Chritmas napkins. Get some wood napkin rings from a crafts store like Michaels or Jo-Anne’s and paint the outside trim in a gold or silver metalic. Then use them to hold solid green or red cloth napkins. Another fun idea is to make a paper journal for the table, where you and your guests can capture your sentiments from the event, then return to them at next year’s dinner.”

Nikita Harris is a catalogue of holiday-entertaining tips, from drinking responsibly to decking the halls for a song. “Make sure your guests have enough to eat. I learned that the hard way. I went out one evening and didn’t have an appetite prior to getting to the party so I didn’t eat. Then I had a couple of drinks and I was really, really ill the next morning. You have to have something in your stomach to absorb the alcohol,” says The VA Housewives host. “Another great tip is, don’t slave away in the kitchen all night. Be organized so once the party starts you can enjoy your guests. What makes or breaks a party is the atmosphere, and it’s up to the hostess to generate good conversation and have good music. Also, holiday decorations don’t have to blow your budget. Poinsettias really brigten up a room, or you can spraypaint branches gold and light a whole bunch of candles. That’s all very inexpensive.”
Candi Fox and Randy Slovacek you to save money this holiday season, without skimping on the fun or sacrificing tradition. “If you get a gift in a big box wrapped in really nice paper, you can reuse that same paper to wrap a gift you’re giving someone else. You’ll also be helping save the environment, and you’ll save yourself time,” says Randy, co-host of The Candi and Randy Show. “If you go shopping for Christmas cards or decorations that day after Christmas, you can save like 75 percent—for next year. So it takes some planning, but it’s worth it. But be sure to remember where you put it,” he adds. “Decorations can also be expsensive. But you can get pine cones throughout the year and spraypaint them gold or silver, put them in a clear vase and add some of those pinpoint Christmas tree lights. That’s a really cute way of making a room look festive without having to spend hundreds of dollars all around the house.”
The holidays can be filled with great joy or great stress. You may not be able to choose all your circumstances this holiday season but you can choose how to respond and even pre-plan to deal with the stresses that inevitably come up. Today we're talking about ten strategies to help you have a better holiday season, some you have never have even heard of before.
Going vegan this holiday season? No need to fret when planning your festivities! Nava Atlas is here to share her favorite recipes that are free of animal products, yet just as scrumptious as the dishes grandma laid out each November and December. “I have one buffet that’s specifically for this time of year, the author of Vegan Holiday Kitchen tells The Jazzy Vegetarian host Laura Theodore. “It has sweet-and-spice pecans, garlic-and-rosemary roasted mushrooms, kale and carrot strudel, and creamy cracked pepper cheez—which isn’t a dairy cheese; it’s based on raw cashews. It’s an addictive concoction that I don’t even want to be left in the same room with. Also, a hot artichoke and white-bean spread. And for Hanukkah, I make vegan latkes, which are held together by either cooked oatmeal or cooked keema flakes. That works just as well as egg. No one can ever tell the difference.”
The 2015 holiday shopping season is here, and video games are showing up on many people's gifts lists. Do parents need to worry about purchasing video games for children and grandchildren? Here to help us sort through questions and concerns that may arise about various types of games is Stetson University Psychology Professor Chris Ferguson, who has conducted extensive research on whether violent video games affect youth.
Chef Carlton Whisonant doesn’t kid around when it comes to seasoning during the holiday, ah, season. “This time of year, we need to talk about fresh herbs. Because not only will they enhance your Thanksgiving and Christmas dishes, they have strong medicinal properties,” says the host of The Healing Chef. "So they’ll add excellent aroma and flavor to your cooking, while also making you healthier. A lot of the herbs that we use all the time—cumin, blue violet, bayleaf, alfalfa, garlic, aloe vera, dill, cilantro, coriander—can be found at a regular grocery store. And the herbs you keep in your kitchen cabinet in a shaker are fine for ocassional use. But to get the full medicinal and culinary value, you’ve got to use fresh herbs.”
Chef Dionna Hurt of Food Network Challenge has a bevy of devilishly delicious holiday desserts on tap that even neophyte cooks can whip up in minutes. “When we all first start cooking, everything seems so new and different. But we don’t all jump right in and become Julia Child,” she tells The Miss Mo Show host Mo Holden. “Sometimes we need to start a little slower. The recipes we’ll discuss today are very user-friendly, with all the ingredients found at your local supermarket. Like the bread pudding with whiskey sauce. This is a Southern favorite that requires just a handful of ingredients—day-old bread, milk, eggs, sugar, salt, nutmeg, vanilla, cinnamon and raisins. It’s the kind of holiday dessert you can make ahead of time and freeze if you’re going to a party. And if you want a non-alcoholic sauce instead of using bourbon, you can substitute a caramel sauce.”
