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.

Make It Work: The Best & Worst Presents To Give At Your Office White Elephant Gift Exchange

The holiday season brings a wide swath of work-related traumas to endure: waiting for your holiday bonus, drinking too much weird tequila at your holiday party and making out with that dude from accounting, figuring out what to do when your boss gets you a present, but you’re empty-handed.

Your childhood room is still stuffed with decorations from sophomore year of high school.

Who Knew Christmas Decorations Could Be Weaponized?

Want to hear a story about Christmas decorations that escalates very quickly? Then you’re in the right place, because we’re about to go down Bonkers Lane!

In Ross Township, Pennsylvania, Fairley Road is a cul-de-sac with one house in the middle. The house in the middle of the cul-de-sac belongs to Bill Ansell, who, once upon a time, had a beautiful, dazzling display of Christmas decorations. Then, one Thanksgiving, one of his neighbors asked him to turn it off while she and her family had dinner, because it was so bright that it was interrupting her meal.

And that, friends, crossed a line. Keep reading »

Headphones

Now that “Serial” is over, what the hell are you going to listen to on your flight back to your family’s house for the holidays? My flight from New York City to my mom’s house is surprisingly quick, but it’s just long enough for boredom to start creeping in if you don’t come prepared with a book. If you’re more of the listening type, Audiobooks.com put together a nifty list of their audiobook titles that can be heard in full by the time you land, and I’m thinking of giving it a try. The books are grouped by the duration of some of the most popular travel routes in the US, which you can adapt based on the length of your own flight!
