We’ve compiled a list of cozy and warm items to gift your chronically freezing friend. Check ‘em out.

Update: I Wanted This Cute Comedian To “Be My Boyfriend,” And He Responded To My Christmas Wish

Update: I Wanted This Cute Comedian To "Be My Boyfriend," And He Responded To My Christmas Wish

I’m already planning the rom-com about this meet-cute. I would like Kate Hudson to play me (or, per a coworker’s suggestion, Jennifer Lawrence in a blonde wig), and Chris Pratt to play Rich. To remind you, Rich is the comedian who almost flawlessly impersonates characters from 25 of the most beloved Christmas movies.

For those of you who have no idea what I’m talking about, here’s the low down. Earlier this week, I penned a “Be My Boyfriend” letter to Rich here on The Frisky. I was floored by how accurate his impressions were in his “25 Days of Christmas Movie Impressions” video, and wanted to tip my hat to him. I told him about how I wanted to find him under my Christmas tree this year and that I would write to Santa to please deliver him. (Yes, that is how I tip my hat. Don’t hate.) Keep reading »

Gift Guide: For The Recently Dumped

Break-ups are tough enough as it is, but a heartbreak during the holiday season is particularly excruciating. Nobody wants to be surrounded by gushy holiday cheer bullshit when their heart is torn in two. Here’s what to buy for that fantastic, talented, loving, newly single friend of yours who deserves way better than her ex anyway.

Watch The Lowell, Michigan, Police Get Into The Holiday Spirit

I Would Probably Cry With Relief, Personally...

Hooray, more holiday cheer! A set of boobs other than Sara X’s has been getting into the Christmas spirit: The Lowell, Michigan Police Department. I KID. They seem very nice and not at all boob-ish.

Lowell police officers started wearing body cameras on dispatches last October, and have since seen public complaints about the police decrease. This December, though, they came up with a new use for the cameras: Recording themselves on dispatches, giving Lowell residents exactly the presents they wanted for Christmas. Nearby officers were listening in on the dispatches, waiting for the residents to say what they still had to get for Christmas, then bought those items and ran them out to the cruiser.

Holiday Estrangements: On Being Motherless By Choice At Christmas

Holiday Estrangements: On Being Motherless By Choice At Christmas

Like many American families who celebrate Christmas, mine does it in a pretty secular way. The more observant among us attend services to mark the holiday, but the magnet that pulls our scattered members across the country to one point in the Midwest is, I think, the same as what brings you and yours together on your special occasions. Togetherness. Kinship. Love — however mixed up with less-exalted emotions — of family.

This gets a little complicated when, like me, you’ve publicly stated you may never speak to your mother again. Keep reading »

Sorry, But These Christmas Songs Are Actually Creepy

Sorry, But These Christmas Songs Are Actually Creepy

Christmas music is a fun way to get into the spirit of the Christmas season as a whole (provided you don’t work in retail, in which case you’re probably sick of them by December 2). Christmas songs are fun to sing along with while you’re wrapping gifts, decorating your tree, hanging your Christmas lights, or just chugging eggnog and rum from the carton on your couch.
