    The stockings are empty, wrapping paper crumpled everywhere, relatives gone (hurray?), and those sugar cookies, well, they've somehow "vanished." That can only mean one thing: Christmas, Hanukkah, and the holidays, in general, are done. So, how did you do? Get a sparkly bauble from your S.O.? How about a new tablet from your parents?

Trust us, those givers will be very proud of how you spent those bucks.
