#10. When you're headed home after dark, it is easy to justify take-out for supper.

#07. Carols over the speaker during class change the last week before Christmas.
#06. Candy canes taped to your classroom door by student club members.

#04. A tin of Danish butter cookies/jar of Hershey kisses on your desk from the principal.
