Obviously, black-and-white photographs of old-fashioned Halloween costumes are creepy. Retro Christmas can get a bit skin-crawling, too, and there’s nothing worse than the early days of the Macy’s Thanksgiving Day Parade. But Easter—surely Easter is nothing but fluffy bunnies and happy candy consumption, right?
So far, this presidency has been a complete Trumpsterfire...and it’s only February! So in the tradition of years past, I decided to create some anti-Valentines, this time exclusively for the Trump administration.
Apparently 4,000 of Finland’s reindeer meet their demise in traffic accidents every year. Given the relentlessly inappropriate nature of reality, it should come as no surprise that the rate of reindeer roadkill increases around Christmas time, when it gets dark early and becomes more difficult to spot the animals.
Office holiday parties offer respite from the usual stress of work, but they are also notorious opportunities to embarrass yourself. Here’s how to navigate your holiday party without waking up with regrets.
Around this time of year, we get treated to playlists filled with holiday hip-hop and R&B standards like Run-D.M.C.’s “Christmas in Hollis” and TLC’s “Sleigh Ride,” a perfect Christmas song. Otherwise, it’s boring holiday classics coming at you nonstop in the department store, at the pharmacy, on the radio. Before you…
It is almost Christmas time but what does it mean across America? Here is the news.
We all have that one person in our life that buys everything they want on their own. They don’t ask for anything and they say they don’t need anything, but you still want to get them something to show your love, respect, or appreciation. Here’s what you can do.
Anker’s home goods brand, Eufy, put its new set of copper string lights back on sale today for their lowest price ever, complete with adjustable brightness and multiple effects. A version of these lights without the remote was on sale for $7 last week, but the remote’s convenience and added lighting options make it…
As we draw closer to December 25, a disproportionate degree of American adults’ mental energy will be rerouted into determining and acquiring this year’s must-have toys for children. But the ceremonial bestowal of the Shopkins is a relatively recent development—how did it happen?
Tomorrow brings the 90th annual Macy’s Thanksgiving Day Parade. But did you know this proud, family-friendly American tradition started out in a totally creepy and scary way?
Should you be blessed to have a Phaedra Parks as a friend, then you know exactly what it’s like to be constantly on the defense, constantly on emotional guard. This friend is often silent but deadly—a good listener, though—and a connoisseur of metaphors. When they speak, it’s usually to call upon Jesus, give helpful…
If anything reminds the plan-less of how fundamentally alone they are in the world, it’s the long weekends of our country’s lesser holidays. Labor Day can be the most melancholic of them all; not only do you get an extra day off to be alone with yourself, but it signifies the transition from summer to fall, a nasty…
Labor Day is this Monday, and that means the hot, sticky summer of 2016 will soon come to an end. Celebrate the long weekend (if you’re lucky enough to have one) and the unofficial beginning of fall by doing something special!
The Los Angeles City Council declared today Kobe Bryant Day, because the date 8/24 contains the two jersey numbers Bryant wore during his Lakers career. The inaugural Kobe Bryant day was marked by Bryant and his family shaking hands and posing for pictures at city hall, where he was also serenaded by adoring local…
Oh, did you think we’d make it through July the Fourth without one single Hamilton post? Never fear my, babies. For here are the Schuyler Sisters, in the middle of their Tony Awards performance, reminding you to work — whatever that may mean for you tonight (I hope it’s figurative).
Attention weary scholars: by the powers vested in The School Company and Rapunzel, you get an extra week of winter vacation. At least, that’s what the extremely official letter pictured above tells us.
Christmas is the most wonderful time of the year—unless you’re like me and don’t celebrate it. Then you’re stuck with a world mostly shut down and seemingly nothing to do. Fortunately you have quite a few options, whether you’re along or with friends, to make December 25th a fun day off regardless of your observances.
The week surrounding Christmas, like the days surrounding Thanksgiving, has always been a danger zone when it comes to running into old high school classmates who we’d rather not see. So how do we get by?
It’s the most wonderful time of the year...to lie to little children about a magical man whose entire reason for being is to break into their homes and give them presents! But it’s not just little kids who fall for stupid lies like Santa. Adults believe made-up shit all of the time, which is why we’re swapping stories…
