Yearly failure aside, there are plenty of holiday horror films to take your mind off of things. For example:
Silent Night, Deadly Night
The Dorm That Dripped Blood
To All a Good Night
New Year's Evil
If you don't end up accomplishing your goals, remember, failure breeds character, and character itself can be considered an improvement of its own. If you don't buy that, you can always just ignore the semi-arbitrary importance laid on the marking of a new year and view life as a one-day-at-a-time endeavor. Of course, if the bulk of your existence consists of you working at a shitty job wearing a stupid hat, and every day is the same, this is hardly an optimistic outlook on life. So, in summary...do the best you can with what is at hand...or don't. Whatever floats your boat.
