Today we're talking about our approach to the holidays—from April's Buddy the Elf level enthusiasm from October straight through New Year's to Indiana's more measured approach. We chat about our favorite holiday traditions and how we balance all the time grabs by extended family and friends. Whether elaborate baked goods for the whole neighborhood are your thing or, like Ashlee, you're more comfortable with every boxed mix Trader Joe's offers, you'll feel right at home in this week's conversation.

Michelin tires are designed to deliver reliable traction—no matter the weather—even when they’re worn. In fact, when worn Michelin Premier All Season tires come to a complete stop, some other tires still travel over 15 mph. While brakes stop your wheels, it’s your tires that stop your car, and that’s why it’s important to choose tires that perform well when worn.
