Christmas Day Social: The Night Belongs to Merna and Henrietta

Last year, when I was just dreaming of writing at Jezebel and not actually doing it, I had a vision of making this version of "Go Tell It On the Mountain" a Saturday Night Social somewhere around the holidays.

As we all know, the holidays are an excellent time for people to express their feelings for one another and become closer with friends old and new.

Awesome Spanish Grandmas Star in New Dolce & Gabbana Ad

Dolce & Gabbana's Spring/Summer 2015 collection was inspired by bullfighters, a glamorous and intricate take on the legends and traditions of Spain.

Obama broke his own rules (but not the rules of fashion, which demand a tiara on all occasions) by putting on a Tiara to pose with the girl scouts.

Watch a Dog Dressed as Santa Riding a Roomba Just Because It's Christmas

At first I thought I was hallucinating this video because it's been a long day, but it's not a mirage. It's real and it's beautiful and it's a tiny dog riding a Roomba as if it were the only thing he was born to do. And you know, as far as life ambitions go, that's a pretty good one.
