Do you tip more during the holiday season?

Do you tip more to waiters and waitresses when you go out to restaurants during the holiday season? I usually tip between 15 and 20 percent, but closer to 20 percent during the holidays. I figure they have to deal with a lot of people in bad moods dealing with crowds when they are shopping and long waits at restaurants so it's probably even more stressful for them that time of year.

Actually it does have sense, it is called being in the holiday spirit and being generous at holiday time. Of course if the service is bad I understand a smaller tip, but if it's good I feel with all they have to deal with during the holidays a small increase is a good idea.

well, i dont really do that...i will tip more when im in a good mood or when the server provide excellent service. sometimes, the servers are so good that you just want to do more for them beside tipping...i may want to give him/her credit by telling their manager too!
