  1. Sherlock‘s Christmas Special Is Going all Out With Its Costumes

    Pip pip, cheerio!

    I'm still not sure why BBC's modern Holmesian adaptation is suddenly going for the Victorian look after all, but I'm on board. Wait, what am I saying? Steven Moffat is the showrunner. Of course they're doing a Victorian special. Name me one Moffat-led Doctor Who Christmas that didn't have some fancy old-timey clothing in it.

  2. Monday Cute: Puppies Fight Boss Battle Against Giant Christmas Teddy Bear

    Its final form has twin mounted cannons. And wings.

    Maymo and Penny have been grinding on teddy bears for, like, an hour now, and got some pretty sweet item drops in the process—who couldn't use a big pile of stuffing and some bear armor? But it's officially too quiet in this living room for their liking. Hope you two have leveled up sufficiently, because things are going to get intense.

  3. Neil deGrasse Tyson Had A Controversial Christmas After Celebrating Isaac Newton’s Birthday

    A Christmas controversy!

    Let's spend some belated Christmas time with Neil Degrasse Tyson. It seems the astrophysicist spent Christmas morning tweeting some things about the holiday and some things not about the holiday, and now some people are upset with him.

  4. Why A Christmas Story Is The Most Honest Holiday Movie

    I love holiday specials. I think that I, like a lot of us, still have the memories of watching How the Grinch Stole Christmas! and Frosty the Snowman imprinted in my very psyche, making me gravitate to airings of A Charlie Brown Christmas like an old top hat toward a golem of a snowman. However, as I grow older, the more that I have to consider that maybe these Christmas specials don’t exactly have the message of warmth and good tidings that they purport to have.

  10. Watch The Adorable Doctor Puppet Christmas Special Right Here

    Trust me, you'll love this.

    Alisa Stern's fan-created series of Doctor Puppet videos have always been pretty well done, but this episode is particularly true to both the spirit of the season and the BBC show. No kidding, I was actually a little scared at one point. Over a puppet. We won't know if the real Who Christmas special will be able to do that yet, but at least we'll always have "The Planet that Came to Christmas!"

    That tree doesn't know what it's got coming.

    The video's creators warn: "Many cats have an aversion to being wrapped or being dressed up and are not toys. Please do not attempt to recreate this scene if your pet is unwilling to remain still."

  13. Obama Supports Girls in Science, Refuses to Gender Toys At Annual Christmas Event

    It's a White House miracle!

    This December marked the first time that President Obama participated in the Marine’s Toys for Tots program by helping the First Lady divide donated gifts into "girl" and "boy" bins. But the President, who first declared “I’m the big elf [...] I’m like Will Ferrell," surprised some of the crowd with his refusal to gender sports equipment, video games, and LEGO.

  14. Celebrate Christmas Eve With These Impressively Festive… Pancakes?

    Is this black magic

    Nathan Shields of Saipancakes takes your traditional flapjack and turns it into a gosh darn work of art. Look at these things! Why would anyone want to eat them?! They're miraculous. I can barely get a pancake to cook evenly. If that's not impressive enough for you, check out his seriously nerdy flapjack creations as well!

  17. Oh Nothing, Just Tom Hiddleston Serenading You With A Christmas Carol

    Well it sure is a merry Christmas now.

    He wishes you a Merry Christmas, I think. I kind of stopped listening and just fell into a stupor. Also I think Nashville singer Rodney Crowell and Hiddleston's puppy Mono the wonder dog might be in this video but I can't be sure.

  19. Introducing the Feminist-Approved “Baby It’s Cold Outside” Video We’ve All Been Waiting For

    Or you could just not sing it. That works, too.

    Yup, it's that time of year again—when everybody acts like they're the first people in the world to notice that the once quaint Christmas song which was supposed to be about societal pressures on female sexuality in the '40s is actually super creepy when viewed through a modern lens (Although, let's be real, that "what's in this drink" line probably doesn't help no matter what the decade.) But now there's a new version you can helpfully point all your newly outraged friends towards!
