There's just a few more hours left to battle the crowds at the mall and then it's time to relax, open the gifts and hope that nobody notices that you've re-wrapped the sweater your mother gave you last year - just before you set fire to your mother-in-law's tree. On the next Talk of the Nation, holiday mayhem. Join guest host Joe Palca for tales from the history of holiday merriment. That's on Talk of the Nation, Christmas Day, from NPR News.
