5 Tips For Surviving Black Friday

My friend Cassie is a Black Friday pro. Every year she heads out to the stores in the dead of night and comes back in the morning with approximately $30,000 worth of Christmas presents for, like, 30 bucks. One time I asked her about her strategies and she regaled me with stories that might make…

Ralphie Of “A Christmas Story” Now A Hot Producer

With TBS playing “A Christmas Story” for 24 hours straight last week, you no doubt watched the classic ’80s flick at least once. And you probably thought to yourself the same question we did: I wonder where Ralphie is now? Well, The New York Daily News has done the legwork for us on that one.

Soldier Sends Family A Heartwarming Icy Reminder

Lieutenant Neil Bucken was stationed in Afghanistan and couldn’t make it home for Christmas or his sister’s birthday, so he did what any normal guy might do — he sent his family in Staten Island, NY, a life-sized ice sculpture of himself holding a bouquet of red roses. Sure. The seven-foot-tall statue includes a photo…

Dear Wendy: “I Don’t Like My Boyfriend’s Christmas Gift”

My boyfriend and I have been seeing each other about a year now. For Christmas he gave me a beautiful pearl necklace, which I appreciated very much; I understand the effort that he put in to picking it out for me. My birthday is coming up soon and he mentioned getting me a different color…

The Downside Of Stuffing Your Face

There’s only one thing that can ruin a decadent holiday meal for me: when I am stuck sitting across from someone with bad table manners. I’ll do anything to ensure I’m nowhere near that certain someone who doesn’t shut her mouth when she chews (I’ve literally seen food fall back out) and burps. And thi…

10 Reasons Why It’s Awesome To Be Single During The Holidays

Being single around the holidays can get you extra seasonally depressed. Everywhere I go, I see couples choosing knickknacks together, making out in front of store windows, and drunkenly leaving parties early so they can go off and do it. Barf! Just kidding, it’s totally cute. I’ve been there and I’ve had a great time…

Mind Of Man: Why Is Xmas So Sexy?

This column originally appeared on The Frisky on December 24, 2008.

Trojan condoms report their highest sales of the year take place in the week between Christmas and New Year’s Eve. Researchers attribute this spike to holiday downtime, New Year’s resolutions to get knocked up, and booze-fueled Yuletide revelry. It seems counter-intuitive, and almost…

How To Get Your Stocking Stuffed On Christmas

Every time a bell rings an angel gets its wings. So it’s your civic duty to get someone to ring your bell on Christmas! Hooking up on the holiday is one part finesse, one part alcohol, and one part restraining yourself from stuffing your face. But it is possible to make babies on Jesus’ B-Day,…

Girl On Girl: My Very Lesbian Wish List

I don’t hide the fact that the holidays are not my favorite time of year. Christmas does not make me think of tinsel-covered trees and red and green wrapping paper. It makes me think of crowded stores, overpriced gifts and too much family time. Plus, it falls right around the coldest and darkest days of…

Yes, That’s Grace Jones And Pee-wee Herman Singing Christmas Carols

It should come as no surprise that Grace Jones and Pee-wee Herman used to hang out. After all, they’re two of the strangest characters of the ’80s, so sure. Here, an uncharacteristically ebullient Grace sings “Little Drummer Boy” to Pee-wee, Chairy, Terry and the rest of the “Pee-wee’s Playhouse” gang. [YouTube]…

Holiday Rant: What’s Up With Blank Christmas Cards?

Like most of you, my mailbox has been filling with Christmas cards over the last couple weeks from extended family members and far-flung friends of my husband’s and mine whom we haven’t seen in an eternity. And while it’s nice to get mail other than bills and junk, I can’t help but feel a little…
