In case you need a little help getting into the holiday spirit, these videos might help. Ultimate Baggage Claim Surprise shows what happens when an airline delivers precisely what its passengers wants for Christmas; The Magic Piano features a "magic" piano set up in a public place and incorporates how strangers interact with it (maybe it's fake, it's still fun!); Let it Snow is about a children's hospital that decides to literally make it "snow" for its patients; and Jolly Christmas Medley is a fun holiday song mash-up by "Orange is the New Black" actresses Danielle Brooks (Taystee) and Uzo Aduba (Crazy Eyes/Suzanne).
Ultimate Baggage Claim Surprise
I'm one of those people who kind of loves holiday music. Around this time of the year, I'm guilty of swapping my Pandora stations to play Christmas songs and I've even purchased entire holiday albums (hi, 2000 Christina Aguilera album "My Kind of Christmas").
I don't cringe when I hear holiday songs in the stores (even if it is before Thanksgiving) and I won't turn the radio off no matter how many times I've heard that particular song.
Except when it comes to five of them. I present to you my list of the five absolute worst holiday and Christmas songs of all time.
#5: "Grandma Got Run over by a Reindeer"
So I don't actually hate this song. I even understand the appeal of it for kids. In fact, I actually thought this song was hilarious when I was little. But as an adult, it's certainly not my favorite holiday song. If I never heard it again, I'd be fine with that.
We hope everyone has a fantastic day celebrating with loved ones. See you tomorrow!
If there's one good thing about the winter season, it's the holidays. Once Halloween is over, we can all officially start thinking about the upcoming winter holidays. It's time to get festive.
For some, it may feel a little too early to get in the holiday spirit. But that's why we're here! First, there's the festive new look throughout our site. The snowflakes! The Santa scroll! The holly berries!
We've also compiled a complete guide to this 2013 holiday season's live events. Not only can it help you get into the holiday spirit, but it can also help to determine which holiday shows or games are a "must see" in the coming weeks.
Our holiday events guide includes:
- Hand selected top holiday events
- 10 holiday events in sports, concerts, and theater
- Pretty graphics (very important)
- A link to a specialized sports, concert, or theater page with an even more expansive list of winter events
