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.
'Tis the season when we should be generous, patient, and jolly. Instead, we often find ourselves cranky, annoyed, and on the verge of throwing a fit. We're frazzled because of how many family arrangements we've had to attend (hint: too many); we're frustrated because we can't find the perfect gift for that Secret Santa at work we don't really know; and we're so, so tired of the lines at literally any store, anywhere. If the adorable Kid President video about being kinder isn't helping to relieve your stress, maybe this video about what it'd be like to be an adult and throw a temper tantrum as if you were a child might. Happy December!
I am a huge fan of Kid President, the adorable little kid who once interviewed Beyonce. Obviously, he can appreciate Beyonce, but more than that, he helps to make meaningful videos. This video is the perfect pre-Thanksgiving watch because it reminds us to be kinder to those around us. I love it. What do you think?
We may be a little late to the game with this video, which has already received more than 9 million views, but it's still golden. At a Celtics game, one guy refuses to take his appearance on the Jumbotron lightly. Instead, he dances up a storm, delighting the crowd and, if you watch, you. Truthfully, this is how we all feel inside whenever we hear Bon Jovi's "Livin' On A Prayer" — he's just dancing out our feelings.
November has come to be known as Movember, a month-long event where men across the world grow mustaches in an effort to raise money (and awareness) for men's health issues. It's a fun, creative way to deal with something serious. So in honor of that noble cause, let's celebrate 5 awesome fictional characters who are mustachioed inspirations for Movember.
#1 Ron Swanson
As a huge "Parks and Rec" fan, Ron Swanson's mustache is essentially unrivaled. There are only a few things you need to know about the character and his mustache is one of them. It's so distinctive Nick Offerman, who plays Ron, is frequently asked about the mustache, which is 100% real. In an interview with TV.com, Offerman said, "When Mike Schur [producer/writer for "Parks and Rec"] and I sat down to sort of sculpt what Ron Swanson was going to be like, one of the first things we decided was that he would have a super kick-ass Midwestern mustache."
