Tune in for a knockout performance from Kevin Kline's Calvin Fischoeder. Real talk though: how about those ice skating moves from his brother Felix, who looks graceful as a freaking swan.

Anyone else in the mood for a glass of something strong and distilled now? Take life on the rocks with bourbon, bourbon, oh bourbon, bourbon.

It's the day after Christmas and you're in bed mentally backpedaling through the various hoops and turns, and vocal explosions of yesterday's wine-soaked conversation. The food coma was unparalleled. Then someone committed the emboldened atrocity that is name-dropping Donald Trump in a perfectly sane and reasonably mannered conversation.

Like, excuse me?. To put it lightly you got pissed. It's alright. Trump happens. Make amends with an annual Vladimir Putin calendar. You could say he's showing us his soft side.

The calendar features various shots of Putin; from topless fishing, to the man caught amidst sweaty bouts of exercise; everyone's in for a wide-eyed smile with this one.

Do you even lift bro?

This amazing feat of creativity and patience is made entirely out of gingerbread, icing, fondant, candy, and Rice Krispie Treats.

Eudicotyledon says that this year's holiday tradition took them two weeks to make. After keeping it out on display for a few months, it'll start to fall apart, and then they time to have fun destroying it together.

You better watch out,

You better not cry,

You better not shout in fear,

Boston Dynamics is showing you why,

Robot Reindeer are here!



Boston Dynamics, the makers of some of the most advanced robots on Earth, uploaded this seemingly-innocent Holiday video. Astute Futurama viewers are aware that we are now one-step closer to the evil that is Robot Santa.



Have fun staying inside and hiding from Robot Santa this Christmas Eve (just in case)!

The War on Christmas is real, y'all. (Just kidding, it's still not a real thing.)

If you hail from the Midwest, you're most likely to feel the burning, hateful stare of a little old lady furious that you've wished her a holiday greeting other than "Merry Christmas." The Southern United States on the other hand, prefers "Happy Holidays." According to FiveThirtyEight, 20% of the South's respondents are African American, who show a strong preference for the secular greeting. 

Religion and politics also come into play in this national data, with "republicans opposing “happy holidays” at the strongest rates and most consistently across the nation. Republican responses probably reflect opposition to political correctness as much as (and perhaps more so than) spiritual sympathies. Republicans as a whole (30 percent) outpace even evangelical Republicans (38 percent) in their anemic support for saying “happy holidays.” In other words, republicans have no chill.

Interestingly, areas known for being particularly non-religious, like Oregon, tend to prefer "Merry Christmas" because it's just not a big deal: "the social stakes are low — Christmas is not an entre to conversations about what church you attend, but more about presents, ugly sweaters and Santa." If you're strolling through Portland, you're less likely to start a battle in the War on Christmas with any kind of festive greeting than you are in a state with a large Christian population that's looking to defend their holy holiday.

When Isabelle LaPeruta, a 7-year-old New Jersey girl, accidentally touched her Elf on the Shelf she thought she did something that would get her in trouble with Santa. According to the popular children's book, touching the Elf on a Shelf is a big time no-no and doing so means the Christmas magic goes away from your home.

Panicked that she just ruined Christmas, Isabelle did what she was told to do in an emergency, call 911.



"To her, it was an emergency when she touched the elf, and she's going to ruin Christmas, so that was her emergency. In her mind, she did right, and it was fine with us." said Old Bridge Police Lt. Joseph Mandola. Looks like the Christmas magic is back for one 7-year-old little girl.
