The Christmas season is the happiest time of year. We get to spend extra time with our family and friends, and there are endless supplies of cookies. While these few weeks are filled with tons of cheer, it's also the sappiest time of year, especially in the good ol' USA. It's the ideal time for overseas military men to surprise their loved ones, and of course, create tearjerker alert YouTube videos of it all.
The odds of us ever winning the lottery are about as high as our shot at scoring any of the babes we feature: approximately zero. Even still, we can't help but stupidly spend tons of cash on lottery tickets, and even more time staring at those babes.
Even though we're huge fans of Christmas, the holiday season can be super stressful at times. This is particularly true when it comes to buying presents. Most people are difficult to shop for, which puts tons of pressure on us to try and decode their present preference. Will our friend like that potpourri centerpiece we're re-gifting from grandma? Probably not. What about the awful Christmas sweater in the back of our closet that still has the tag on it? We'll give that a big N-O.
With all the time we spend on Pinterest, it's no wonder we've come across so much quirky and awesome stuff. Half our holiday gift and decorating ideas come from the site alone! Want to check out Disney/Star Wars mash-up art or a cheeseburger dress? They've got you covered. Not surprisingly, the site also has a whole slew of questionable holiday products you can pin and repin, like a pickle ornament or a creepy spandex reindeer costume.
Santa's elves are the greatest. For starters, they work super hard in his workshop all year round making our Christmas presents and baking delicious treats so Santa maintains that cookie belly. However, we do think these charming people are highly underrated. They're arguably the most charming part of Christmas, after all! That's why we think it's important to pay homage to the little guys and girls through one of our favorite combos of all-time: babies and costumes.
Ladies and gentleman, prime time prank season is upon us. Why? Everyone's so stinkin' happy around the holidays, and the last thing they'd expect is for an evil prankster to pull out hilarious (and sometimes mean) tricks.
There are two awesome things from the '90s that always top our list of decade favorites: 'Full House' and MC Hammer pants. While it might be a little embarrassing to admit the latter, we're still huge fans of the family show, and we totally wish they'd go 'Boy Meets World' on us and produce a 'Full House' sequel.
Disney World is the greatest place on earth. There's tons of awesome rides, even more awesome Disney characters walking around and enough sugary treats to seriously damage our health. But who cares! There's something about the magical park that makes adults act like kids and kids go wild with excitement, and the latter is particularly true.
Even though Santa has an awesome job, it can be super stressful at times. Sure he's a jolly ol' guy who gives out presents for a living, but when Christmas Eve rolls around, things can get really tricky. If you think about it, the guy has to pull off delivering like, millions and millions of presents to people all around the world, so of course Santa needs to relax a bit post-Christmas. You know-- hop in the jaccuzi, get a massage or down a couple dozen chocolate chip cookies while the elves give him a manicure.
However, there are times Santa goes a little overboard with this whole "relaxing" thing, and he knocks back a few too many drinks (and we're not talking about milk). Basically, the guy gets extra, extra tipsy. He ends up passing out on sidewalks, subways and even right next to the Christmas tree. Who know Saint Nick was such a party animal?
Little kids are the best. They're pro photobombers and make super weird raps about McDonald's, and that's just scratching the surface. But munchkins can also be the worst. Don't get us wrong-- their adorableness usually overrides any of those 'tudes they try and pull, and you know how we're suckers for anything remotely adorable. But sometimes that awful side emerges in those rare moments of brattiness, and we're left sort of dumbfounded.
With Christmas only a few short weeks away, our holiday excitement seems to build every single day. Honestly, how can you not be totally stoked over the idea of presents and Santa and tons of hot chocolate with marshmallows? It's impossible. That's why we love to express this crazy anticipation in our favorite way-- through festive clothing. We're huge fans of giving our cat's reindeer antlers and making our pups wear Santa hats, but what does that mean for us?
