Have No Shame: 13 Childish Habits We All Have At Christmastime

Have No Shame: 13 Childish Habits We All Have At Christmas

As “adult” as you may be, there’s something about Christmas that turns back the clock, and transforms us all into non-creepy, non-wrinkly Benjamin Buttons. You’re 29, trapped in a 10-year-old’s body and that is totally 100% acceptable. It’s OKAY to want to hear “The Chipmunk Song” and it’s OKAY to snoop for presents. If you’re guilty of taking part in any of these childish Christmas habits, know that you’re not alone. Keep reading »

These 8 Incredibly Weird Christmas Videos Are The Gifts That Keep On Giving

Amy Adams Can’t Keep It Together During SNL’s “Love Actually” Spoof

Amy Adams Can't Keep It Together During SNL's "Love Actually" Spoof
Love Actually Is Very Weird...

Somehow, in its 11 years of existence, I only watched “Love Actually” for the first time this past weekend. It was heartwarming, it was enduring, it was uplifting and I freakin’ loved it, which is what makes the timing of Amy Adams’ guest spot on “Saturday Night Live” this week even more perfect.

In a “Love Actually” spoof called “Christmas Romance,” Amy opens her door to find a man, “SNL”‘s Pete Davidson, holding up a series of signs. She quickly realizes that he might be trying to profess his love for her, but after a few more minutes of signage, what he actually reveals is SO much better. In fact, the writers at “SNL” did such a fantastic job, that Amy eventually can’t keep a straight face anymore and struggles to keep it together as Pete does his thing (also holding back the giggles). This is why I love Christmas.

NORAD’s Santa Tracker Has A Totally Adorable Origin Story

If you’re a parent, chances are you know NORAD’s Santa Tracker. NORAD is the North American Aerospace Defense Command, the joint US-Canadian center that tracks aerospace activity, so it seems only logical that NORAD would have the best idea as to Santa’s location on the night of Christmas Eve.

It turns out that the Santa Tracker has an insanely adorable origin story. In 1955, Sears printed an ad with a number for kids to call to talk to Santa Claus. It turned out, though, that the phone number they printed had a typo, and the phone it reached was an emergency line at what was then the Continental Air Defense Command, now NORAD. The only two people who had the number for the phone were Colonel Harry Shoup at the CADC, and a four-star general at the Pentagon. The line was only supposed to ring if there was an attack (this was all happening in the beginning of the Cold War). Keep reading »
