Passing this along via the idea of Mark Dredge from Pencil and Spoon (and reinforced by Jay from A Beer in Hand).
December 3rd through 5th, Open it! Yes, pull out that beer you have been saving and open it up and drink it on the weekend between the 3rd and 5th of December. Have a bottle of wine instead? Open it! Just do it, talk about it, enjoy it, and drink it. If you want to write about it, do that too! Just make sure you go and open it.
