When Mariah Carey says it’s Christmas, YOU BETTER FOLLOW HER LEAD.
Making the best of the snowstorm yesterday, the singer decided to treat the blizzard like a holiday by turning on the fireplace and eating Santa Claus cookies.
It’s hard to hear exactly what she’s saying over the blaring music, but it appears that she’s still in denial that Christmas is over.
However, the diva does offer an important message right at the end of the clip.
“Listening to Christmas music today, driving around, seeing different people made me feel GOOD! And that’s what life is about. So you can say what you want to say but we’re having fun!”
You have a fabulous life Mariah and I also wish that every day was Christmas !
Can we be BFFS, please?
Remember when you were a kid and got a present you REALLY wanted? For me, it was my Furby. My dad said he waited in line for an hour with other disgruntled parents, just like that movie Jingle All The Way. For Reese, it was a new game. It was too much for him to take and he got overwhelmed with tears of joy. What was your favourite Christmas present as a kid?
I love Christmas stories as much as anyone, especially The Night Before Christmas. But I always appreciated a rendition with modern sensibilities. That’s why Comediva wrote a whole new story called How the LOLcats Saved Christmas. In this version, the LOLcats stop Tard the Grumpy Cat from attacking Santa Claus. Guest appearances included Henri the Existential Cat, Maru and the Keyboard Cat. If the adorable story doesn’t get you, then the LOLcat pictures will.
I’m sure I wasn’t the only child who sat outside pondering the formation of snow. Those mounds of white, glittering goodness are made of millions of little balls that fall graciously from the sky. But do we ever question how they are formed and where they come from? BytesizeScience‘s “The Chemistry of Snowflakes” perfectly explains how these little angelic gems are formed from the sky. I wish the answer was “magic,” but unfortunately that’s not always the answer to everything.
According to the video, a snowflake at some point forms “cavities.” I’m sure this is in no relation to the kind that us humans get, but it makes you wonder about the beautiful similarities between nature’s wonders and us human beings.

Sean Ward of The Sean Ward show is always working his magic to combine the comic book world with the real world. The genius behind the Toronto Batman series just gifted the Internet with another one of his super hero gems, but this time with a bit of holiday cheer.
The host surprised a little boy with the real-life Spider Man. Seriously. Kieran, who told his parents he wanted Spider Man for Christmas, got exactly what he wanted this year. And I thought I had high expectations when I wished for the real-life Ronald Weasley to be sitting under our tree. Maybe Sean Ward can make this Christmas wish come true (hint hint).

While the holidays are supposed to be a joyful time of year it can also get pretty stressful when Christmas-themed activities bog down your schedule and you can’t figure what to get everyone. Worst, is buying thoughtful gifts for your colleagues. I mean, what do you get the people you try to avoid all year?
The answer is very simple: A generic gift card to a coffee shop. But things can get a little awkward when someone tries to send subliminal messaging through their gift or forfeits the tradition altogether. The sketch is by HSTSketchComedy, who previously did Hipster Thanksgiving.

Bruno Mars was gifted with the most magnificent mistletoe kissing hat on Ellen today and immediately returned her gift with a juicy kiss. The “Locked Out of Heaven” singer is known for his stylish collection of hats so Ellen thought it would be a festive addition to his wardrobe.
The brim of the hat is wrapped with Christmas lights and garland, and a sprig of mistletoe bounces from the top, which in case you didn’t realize is a kissing tradition:
“Look at that,” Mars said about the hat. “This looks great, this is fashion to me.” Ellen added: ”It’s fantastic, and it’s useful. Not that you need it.”
Mars can really pull off any look… even a hat with a mini Christmas tree topper. A couple weeks ago, Ellen showed off some ugly Christmas sweaters too. She’s really got the best Christmas style.

The holiday season is NOT about fighting but Christmas and Hanukkah just couldn’t help themselves in this sketch by CollegeHumor.
The two holidays go head to head with weapons like pine needles, Black Friday, gelt guns and dreidel. Christmas originally knocked Hanukkah down with “Christmas morning” but it didn’t stick because of the “miracle save” card. I nearly thought Hanukkah had this one with “Jewish Guilt” but it ended up backfiring so no real winner was announced.
Choose your own victor under the comments! I’m going with the apathetic answer, Chrismukkah!

Nothing makes me feel so warm and fuzzy inside as a nostalgic cartoon or stop-motion classic during the holidays. It makes me recall those precious moments when I couldn’t wait for Santa to come down the chimney on Christmas eve. Here are ten you have to RE-watch this year.
Dr. Seuss’ How the Grinch Stole Christmas
The Whos of Whoville love Christmas and show it by decorating the town and singing songs. But the Grinch devises a plan to ruin the festive holiday by stealing all their gifts and decorations. It’s not until he sees that even without all the “stuff,” the Whos are still happy, making him realize the true meaning of the holidays. This classic will make any grinch’s heart grow twice its size.
Frosty the Snowman
Frosty the Snowman tells the tale of a young girl and her friendship with a talking snowman. They team up to defeat a greedy magician who desperately wants his magical hat back. This classic tale has so many heart-warming scenes you’ll want to gather your closest friends in a circle and sing.
Rudolph the Red Nosed Reindeer
All little Rudolph wanted was to fit in and be like everyone else, until he realizes that being himself is what makes him special. He’s able to do something that none of the others could do to save Christmas. Hooray for individuality!

Christmas is a time of love, friendship, family and giving back. It’s also a time of receiving horrible presents. That’s why when someone gifts you a lousy pair of socks or an irrelevant coin sorter machine it’s important to master that expression of complete shock and awe.
You know like, “That’s just what I wanted! How did you know?!”
Jimmy Kimmel’s team approached streeters and asked them how to pretend to like a lousy holiday gift. While a couple of them mastered a believable reaction, the others fell into two categories; They either over-exaggerated their reactions or went a little too droll.
Still, when it comes down to it, Christmas isn’t about presents. It’s the thought that counts!

Nothing gets you in the holiday spirit like holiday gifs. Especially if they involves Harry Styles, Charlie Brown, Justin Bieber or all of the above.

If you have a cold black heart, there’s no way it can survive after watching this video of cute huskies playing in a Winter Wonderland. The holiday message from PETSAMI features the puppies in Santa Claus hats and reindeer antlers playing on
snow cotton ball covered presents and gift boxes.
After a long day of ripping apart stuffing and garland, it’s time to wrap up in a cozy stocking for a few Zzz’s. ADORBZ.

There’s a problem with the Christmas lights in Brighton England. Apparently, a disgruntled electrician decided to shake things up by designing the family displays at Churchill Square and Western Road to be completely sexual. The well thought out installation included genitals, the message “buy more shit” and a Santa getting some sort of… well, job.
Although the video is hilarious, it’s actually a clever spoof created to make people laugh over the holidays. Job well done!

Okay, it isn’t the real Mitt Romney, but a man wearing a Mitt Romney mask, robbed a bank in Virginia this past week. The man took money from all five tellers before fleeing. A A strange fact, this is the same bank where someone robbed it wearing a Hillary Clinton mask, two years ago.
Two elephants drank vodka to survive, after the trailer they were in caught fire in freezing cold, Siberia. Their handler, quickly bought two cases of vodka, and mixing it with water, had the elephants drink it. In the end it probably saved their lives. They only had a little frost bite on their ears and trunks. The elephants are on tour with the circus, and the show must go on.
Smashing pigs with a hammer, New York tradition
A New York tradition at Christmas, isn’t exactly the first thing you think about during the holidays. Saratoga Sweets, in Halfmoon, New York carries on a Christmas tradition, of pink peppermint pigs. The hard candy pigs are selling like hot chocolate on a cold winter day. The best part, these piggies are sold with a little hammer to crush them. They are considered good luck, to smash them apart after Christmas.
Can’t say I’ve ever wanted to see what a giant replica of the human colon looks like, better yet, want to sleep in one, but it exists. The lovely hotel, is located on a small island near Antwerp, Belgium. On the outside, its exactly what it looks like, a giant human colon replica. On the inside, it’s actually cozy, clean and livable. What was once just an art piece, it is now been turned into a hotel. Surprisingly, all the reviews have been positive.
Canon shoots cans of Pot into the USA
I’ve heard of elaborate plans to smuggle Marijuana across borders, but this one is the coolest. About 30 cans filled with pot, were shot out of some sort of canon from Mexico, into Arizona, USA. The value is estimated at $42,500.
Thank God these basketball players are already talented in playing sports because their voices probably won’t take them far.
Singing the Holiday classic “I Have a Little Dreidal,” the Houston Rockets have me cringing instead of smiling because their renditions sound completely tone deaf.
(And as for the Dallas Mavericks, I can’t say that I don’t feel the same way. But while embarrassing, both of these videos are very endearing.)
Jimmy Fallon never ceases to amaze me with his music…even if they are parodies. Singing the Christmas classic “Jingle Bells, Batman Smells” in the musical stylings of the legendary Bob Dylan, you really can’t deny that Fallon is a talented man!!
Release a Christmas album Jimmy. ASAP.
Christmas is my favourite time of the year. From Christmas carols, family dinners, gifts and an extended break from school, I do have to say that nothing ever beats watching Christmas specials on TV.
My personal favourite, is undoubtedly “A Charlie Brown Christmas.”
For some reason, I’ve always found it rewarding when Charlie Brown comes to his senses and learns the meaning of Christmas instead of being a Debbie Downer all the time.
But since the special’s 1965 release, it looks to me that Charlie Brown has grown to be quite the miserable old man in 2012. That is…until he gets in touch with his youthful side at the end.
The holidays are here, and the glee kids are celebrating everything from Hanukkah to Christmas to… the Mayan apocalypse?

Here’s what you need to know from last night’s episode, “Glee, Actually.”
Artie’s guardian angel – After taking a nasty fall on McKinley’s treacherous wheelchair ramp, he wishes he were never put in his chair. He has a Christmas Carol-esque dream in which ex-gleek Rory shows him what McKinley would be like had he never been paralyzed. Picture a pregnant Becky and a drunk Mr. Schue. Scary, I know. Luckily, the dream is enough to make Artie come to his senses.
Christmas in New York – Kurt plans to stay in New York for Christmas, but what he doesn’t plan is a visit from his dad and ex-boyfriend Blaine. The visit is full of Hummel traditions like watching basketball while not-so-secretly reading Vogue, but Burt comes bearing something other than gifts: he tells Kurt he has prostate cancer. It’s heartbreaking to see these two battle another health scare. Can’t they catch a break?
