Christmas in New York City would be nothing without Rockefeller Center, home of the renowned 80-foot Christmas tree and the ice skating rink that doubles as the planet’s favorite wedding proposal location. It’s a place full of traditions, but this year may see the absence of a favorite — the rink’s beloved Skating Santa.

Paul Chernosky, Rockefeller Center’s Santa extraordinaire, has spent the past 15 holiday seasons making families smile and taking pictures with skaters. However, Grinch-like management changes this year have caused Paul to be fired without warning.

Paul was shocked by the sudden job loss:

“I was always told in the past that as long as I wanted the job I had it. … I felt very appreciated and praised for my work, and then all of a sudden: boom. The rug was just pulled out from under my feet.” Keep reading »

Study: If Your Gut Says Don’t Marry Him, Run For The Hills!

Study: If Your Gut Says Don't Marry Him, Run For The Hills!

I’m a big believer in listening to gut feelings. Trust your gut, and you can never go wrong – and if things do go wrong, you’re way less likely to have regrets, because you followed your instincts. According to a recent study published in Science, I’m not the only one who feels this way. As it turns out, gut feelings can indicate the future success of a marriage. The study found that no matter what positive exclamations they share in public, newlyweds’ gut instincts about their new spouses are a big part of what determines whether they’ll be satisfied in their marriage.

This Artist Found A Whole New Purpose For Old Jeans

This Artist Found A Whole New Purpose For Old Jeans
His Artistic Talent Is In The Jeans

When I was a preteen, I made a purse out of an old pair of jeans and thought I was just too cool. Artist Ian Berry took things a big step further, using denim as a medium to make beautiful “paintings.” In a report by the BBC, Berry shows off his art. The designs look almost as if they’re paintings, but are made solely of jeans. Berry has exhibited his work worldwide, and was even commissioned by Giorgio Armani. Mind. Blown. [BBC]

Rebecca Black Revisits “Friday” And It’s Still As Embarrassing As You Remember

Which Seat Can I Take?

Rebecca Black, the world’s favorite internet celebrity, has a special holiday gift for you. She’s filmed herself watching her famous “Friday” music video and her commentary is no holds barred. Surely we can all remember that video, which made her something of a household name and posed us with life-altering questions like “which seat can I take?” as she cruised around singing in a convertible. Rebecca’s ability to laugh at herself and two and a half years (and 61 million YouTube views) later is pretty admirable. I’m rooting for a “Friday” sequel. “Saturday,” anyone? [Gawker]
