Which is a better Christmas movie, Elf or Scrooged?
Be careful which one you choose.
Ted got a lovely advent calendar from his grandma for Christmas but no one was home to pick it up. Unfortunately, when your Christmas cheer is held at the post office you need to bring some identification with you to retrieve it. This is a problem because Ted is a cat so, because the mail was addressed to Ted, his owner couldn't pick it up.
Although the post office was standoffish over the phone, the workers in person listened to reason.
Ted got his calendar filled with treats and the whole post office got something to laugh about.
Jack Weaver suffers from Wolf-Hirschhorn syndrome, a genetic disorder that delays development. According to his mom, Shannon, he's been having a particularly hard year. Since Christmas is his favorite time of year, she thought that a card or two might help cheer him up so she asked the internet and the internet delivered.
More than 50 cards have already come in, many of them with sweet messages to Jack like this one:

Shannon says that any gifts they receive will be donated to the Peyton Manning Children's Hospital where Jack has spent a lot of time.
This lovely family belongs to Michele Fiore, a Nevada lawmaker. There's only one problem with this image, where are the toddler's guns? Don't they get guns? Maybe the little ones are exercising their right to concealed carrying.
When Santa Claus visited Middlesbrough's Cleveland Centre, he found one little girl who wasn't able to tell him what she wanted for Christmas. The girl's mother apologized, explaining that "she isn't able to speak very well." Saint Nick asked if the girl was albe to sign, and went on to have a heart-warming conversation with her in sign language. Even if you can't read what they're saying, the girl's joy is plain to see.
Now that's the spirit of Christmas!
In an event for Autism Speaks a very 'Caring Santa' spent time bonding with kids who have autism. Events with a lot of people like the typical mall Santa meet and greet can be especially hard for children with autism. In this event, kids make appointments to avoid waiting in crowded lines. The Santa at this event makes sure to spend as much time is needed to interact with the kids.
This particular Santa in Charlotte, N.C. went the extra mile by laying on the ground just to connect with a nervous little boy. You can see more photos and the full story in the video below:
If you love the scent of meaty, cheesey flavored chips you're in luck! Pringles has just launched a line of candles in three savory flavors.
Now you can smell pigs in blankets, cheesy cheese or Texas bar-b-que anywhere in your home, and you don't even have to spill a can of Pringles on yourself accidentally to do it. For now the candles are just a trial. They must need further experiments to get the scent to smell more like a snack fresh from the oven and less like the weird Uncle who always smells kind of like ham.
The loneliest boy in all of Britain lives on an island with a population of 70 people. His name is Aron and according to the Telegraph, he is the only school aged boy on the island so his closest friends are "his dog, some ducks and flocks of sheep".
Aron used to have a few friends and brothers to play with but they all left the island to go to secondary school on another island two hours away. He's normally a pretty happy kid but his mother expressed some concern now that he's really the only kid left on the island.
This prompted a reddit user and moderator on r/Scotland to ask his fellow users to spread some holiday cheer in this post:
The response was overwhelmingly positive, but we'll probably have to wait until Christmas to see just how far the message spread when Aron recieves his cards at school.
