If there’s one thing that I know about cats it’s that they LOVE to wear things on their heads. That’s why you see so many cats being walked down the street wearing hats. In keeping with the Christmas*** spirit, Etsy user NotSoKittyShop has crafted a special holiday fascinator made from styrofoam balls and glitter to deck your cat in festive cheer just like you deck your halls! The fascinator features 10 faux ornaments which hang from kitty’s head, spreading joy to the world. Or just your living room. Doesn’t this little guy look full of joy? [Etsy.com/NotSoKittyShop]

I’m not looking to shit on anyone’s insane holiday spirit, but I’m sorry, having 277 Christmas trees in your house, like Maryland woman Renetta Zanco does, seems excessive. Saying that her house looks “like Macy’s department store” would be an understatement. Zanco, who often spends 10 hours a days Christmasing her house from top to tail, has 28 trees displayed in her bathroom alone — including one that is made of toilet paper rolls and one that lives in the shower during the holiday season. (I’m curious about how that works.) Keep reading »
Between growing up Jewish and having a birthday two days before Christmas, it became ingrained in me that holiday presents only happen sometimes. In my world, gifts are never a guarantee, they are a pleasant surprise. Some years, I would get one Hanukkah present, some years I would get 8 and some years, especially when I got older, none. I got a lot of combo holiday/birthday presents. I got a lot of people who skipped over my holiday/ birthday present altogether either because A) who cares about Hanukkah? or B) they were so consumed with the drama of Christmas that they forgot my birthday existed. That’s perfectly understandable. I haven’t been upset about it since middle school. In fact, it birthed my holiday alter ego. Her name is Elfowicz and she is a spontaneous gifter. Keep reading »
Theres something about twinkly lights and snowflakes falling on a hushed street that can send even the most confident woman into a free-fall, scrambling for the nearest warm body to spend the holidays with. This time of year lends itself nicely to reflection, to family, to untold amounts of love and cheer and wassailing, but can also very easily be horribly, awfully depressing. If you find yourself pushing through throngs of rosy-cheeked, hand holding couples stopping to kiss under every available sprig of mistletoe, don’t despair. Don’t get mired in the “woe-is-me-I-need-a-man” blues.This is a time for reflection, but it’s also the best present the universe could ever give you — built in downtime, for you to think about what you want and how you want it.
