It was 77 degrees in LA today which is what qualifies as Christmas here.

Listen, drinking all night is not healthy. But it's holiday party season, that perfect storm of open bar and all of your colleagues waiting to see who will be this year's obnoxious, puking, passed out and/or dead person at the party. Don't be that guy.

President Obama goes full monster face while reading Where The Wild Things Are to a group of children during the annual White House Egg Roll. Wonderful.
Because everything has to get the Batman Begins treatment now.
Nothing says holiday cheer like an unmanned aerial vehicle! In San Francisco's Union Square, a drone decked out in tinsel and armed with mistletoe did some low-flying rounds over the heads of jolly folks, who were positively delighted at the excuse to engage in a little festive PDA. Ho! Ho! Ho!
Doesn't matter if you're going away for a few nights or a fortnight, there's no need to carry more matched luggage than Princess Vespa. With a bit of planning and these simple storage techniques, you'll be able to pack your holiday's worth of gear into a standard carry-on.
Mark Rober has been wowing us for three of years now with his innovative, high-tech Halloween costumes. In fact, he got so good at it that he quit his job at NASA to devote himself to "Digital Dudz" full-time. Now he's applied the cyber-clothing concept to the perennial holiday favorite, the ugly Christmas sweater,…
Ready for a big number? 502,165. That's the number of LED lights the family of David and Janean Richards in Canberra, Australia has decked its home in order to clinch the 2013 Guinness World Record for most Christmas lights in one display. Whoa.
Merry Christmas, movie house! Merry Christmas, Emporium! Merry Christmas, you wonderful old Paramount Studio!
Instead of the typical lazy, under-achieving feelings, we all get to be pleased with ourselves tomorrow. We're making productive contributions to the work force, or we're trying to, and every little bit counts! But Labor Day kind of has an identity problem. The overeager summer obsession from Memorial Day is long gone…
A Christmas Story may have lost its Flash Gordon scene, but that doesn't mean when can't inject a little scifi spirit into the holiday classic. That's what Gordon Tarpley has done with his clever Star Wars/A Christmas Story mashup, tearing apart C-3PO and R2-D2 and reassembling them as the Old Man's winning leg lamp.
How do you bring a little Lovecraft into your holiday? You can sing Eldritch Christmas carols or decorate your tree with tentacles or put a Santa Cthulhu up on the shelf.

Victoria Justice, a wonderfully pretty girl, and Max Schneider, some guy who looks fresh out of the Jonas/Bieberian factory, teamed up to make a holiday music video that'll surely make tween YouTube commenters swoon and post something about MARRYME4LYFEMAX or OMG DO A SONG WITH BIEBER. Whatever. What's actually cool…
You want your house to be lit up brighter than Clark Griswold's in Christmas Vacation. But you've got problems to solve, beyond just the aesthetic challenge. How can you make sure you don't take a three-story dive off a slippery eave. And how much power are a few thousand feet of lights gonna require?
It's hard to mention Star Wars and the holidays in the same breath without reliving the horrors of Life Day, but PJ McQuade's witty cards are almost enough to cleanse Wookiee winter rituals from our brains. Now we just imagine Bossk's sleigh pulled by eight tiny tauntauns.
Madness. That's what Amazon's warehouses are during the holiday shopping season. Take a look at these images. While I've seen others in the past, this angle of one of their warehouses is particularly striking. Endless sea of packages never ends!
