Caps, gowns and graduation parties are in full force this season, and with good reason: In 2012, the U.S. crossed the 80 percent high school graduation rate, the first time in the nation's history.

Unless your name is Ebenezer Scrooge, you’re likely to feel more generous during the holiday season, and will donate extra time or money to your favorite charity. (Plus, the tax break you might get in a few months will be a nice added bonus.)
