Most of us just came off a long — not to mention filling — four-day weekend, so this one seems to have crept up. If it caught you by surprise and you’re not quite sure of your social schedule, we’ll help you combat snow-induced boredom and those few extra pounds after all those turkey leftovers! It’s probably time to get out there and shake it on the dance floor (do the mashed potato to work off those mashed potatoes!). If dancin’ isn’t your bag, you could hit up a comedy show and laugh your tummy back to normal. And though you may be sick of the consumer grind after Black Friday, check out some sheduled shopping and beauty events.
