Epic Study Break: Holiday cheer to get you through finals

It’s that magical time of year again. The red holiday cups are in full rotation at Starbucks and Santa is ringing his bell for the Salvation Army. The end of the semester is close (enough) to taste, but not without getting through a busload of work. When exams are over, you’ll be experiencing stress of a different kind – the kind where you have to figure out what your parents actually want when they ask for “a good book.” It’s hard to remember what “holiday cheer” even means when you have a chemistry exam looming over your head. Here’s a little reminder:

The best way to spread Christmas cheer is singing loud for all to hear!

It wouldn’t be the holidays without watching Elf at least 14 times. If you really need a study break for something light and easy, Elf will do the trick.

If you’re looking for a good cry, watch It’s a Wonderful Life. It gets me every time.

For some unconventional gift ideas, see our RISD alumni holiday gift guide or  NYMag’s ultimate holiday gift guide.

I know what’s on my wish list:


Remember what holiday shopping was like before the internet? Nope, me neither.

And finally, an overload of kitteny-cuteness.


Enjoy this extended holiday study break. And remember: THE END IS NEAR!
