Every new year brings with it a flurry of New Year’s resolutions. (We hope that your resolutions are going well, by the way.) Most of us have relatively simple resolutions. We resolve to go to the gym more often, lose a pound or two here or there and finally get around to working on that perfect work-life balance that people are always talking about. But Facebook’s Mark Zuckerberg isn’t really like the rest of us; his New Year’s resolutions are a bit… extravagant.

What’s Festivus? It’s nothing!
That’s right. It’s that time again, Festivus 2015. We hope that you all took time out of your day to gather around your aluminum pole (no tinsel, though — it’s distracting) and have dinner with your family and friends, letting them know how they have disappointed you over the last year.

According to the latest estimates, “The Force Awakens” raked in $529 million globally — an absolutely staggering opening for J. J. Abrams and company.
