Everyone knows Christmas Day is all about tearing open presents, spending time with loved ones, gorging on lots of good food and celebrating the holiday spirit in general. Even though most of us have got the holiday thing down by now, some folks out there might not be aware of some of the unusual and history-making events marking Christmas Day and Christmas Eve in the past.
Imagine everything you normally eat for Christmas dinner — turkey, sausages, potatoes, stuffing, vegetables, pudding (!)…everything. Now imagine all of it coated in batter and deep-fried until crispy on the outside...
It's a major award! Looks like the Library of Congress is in a very Christmas-y mood, as Bob Clark's classic 'A Christmas Story' is one of 25 new films selected for preservation into the National Film Registry. Oh fudge, indeed!
Jump after the break to find out the other 24 titles!
We love Santa. We really do! He's probably the coolest old guy we know, spending his life making presents, managing elves and eating cookies. Truth be told, we're sort of jealous. The jolly old guy usually looks bright and cheery and not all that scary, which is yet another reason we're fans.
This past Saturday, SantaCon took over New York City. For all of you unfamiliar with this classic American holiday, it's an entire day dedicated to dressing up like Santa Claus and getting a little crazy frolicking around with fellow Saint Nick look-a-likes. It's sort of like a massive Christmas flash mob that makes you feel like you're in a strange alternate universe, but it's actually totally awesome.
Attention everyone: we now officially have T-minus eight days until Christmas, and preparation time is running out faster than we can shove holiday cookies in our mouths. We still have to buy last-minute presents, dig out those stockings from the back of our closets and make time for that awful office party.
