Holiday Don'ts: 10 Things To Avoid This Year

It happens every year after the holidays: you wake up and tell yourself that next year, you'll do things differently. You'll be more organized. You'll get less... tipsy. You won't be as stressed and take it out on your loved ones. You'll eat better. But somehow, things never change. You forget what you told yourself 365 days ago and make all the same mistakes over again.

But not this year: This year you won't drink the bar dry at the annual office holiday party, nor will you eat yourself into a turkey coma. Flip through our slideshow -- inspired by HuffPost Canada editors' own 'do not repeat' items -- and with any luck this gentle reminder at the start of holiday season will set the tone for a new, more festive you.
