Nora Ephron Understood Your Post-Christmas Malaise

Illustration for article titled Nora Ephron Understood Your Post-Christmas Malaise

It's become fashionable to say that your favorite holiday is Thanksgiving, and every so often I say those words. What I mean is that Thanksgiving is a holiday that's entirely about food. The glorious turkey. The stuffing your mother used to make. And pies, pies, pies. When you say your favorite holiday is Thanksgiving, you're not just praising Thanksgiving – you're secretly dissing Christmas, with all its mercenary trappings and its promise of day-after holiday depression. But the truth is I am demented over Christmas. I love it.
