Seasonal wishes

I would just like to take this opportunity to wish Mind Hacks readers a happy seasonal festival and I hope you experience an appropriate positive emotion during your marking of the period.

If you’re interested in a little seasonal psychology, Frontal Cortex has an excellent piece on the psychology of Hanukkah, the Jewish festival that involves 8 days of gift giving.

Curiously, it involves the peak-end rule and research with colonoscopies and I’ll leave you to discover the rest.

I’ll be having a very Paisa Christmas with everything kicking off today so Feliz Navidad y Pr√≥spero A√±o Nuevo from Colombia.

    Muchas felicidades estas Fiestas y un pr√≥spero a√±o nuevo. Tu blog es, sin duda, uno de los mejores que he le√≠do en mucho tiempo. Es intelectualmente y culturamente superior… no deca√≠gas y ¬ød√≥nde estaba metida una persona tan brillante como tu?
    Felicidades de nuevo desde las Islas Canarias (Las Palmas, Gran Canaria).
