Now that the year is finally coming to a close, it’s time to take a bit of a step back and look at the events that have come and gone over the last 12 months. And while everyone has very likely had their ups and downs, we’d like to encourage everybody to take a deeper look at the positives — and, if possible, share in some revelry as you do so with close friends, family members, and even your coworkers. Life can be difficult and scary if you let it get you down, but if you take a moment to take a look at what surrounds you, you might just realize that even the shortest, darkest days still have a bright side. And that’s what this week’s everyday carry pocket dump is about: enjoying the little things — like a splash of festive color.
