10 Christmas and New Year Lists of Lists

This is Winter Wonderland season and while some can’t wait for it to end, others would like to keep it going for the rest of the year. For them and all those who just can’t get enough of its magical power, here is a list of Christmasy things you might enjoy.

We have not forgotten our Jewish friends, who celebrated Hanukkah. This is why we included a clip in the list below at the very end Star

1. The carols, the joy, the videos

2. Jon Stewart's (tds)

Navigate the lists above (over 60 video clips) by pressing the right and left arrows on the clips. And if that’s not enough, there’s a movie played in many families on Christmas morning (funnyordie).

3. Crazy photos

…some ads (christmasads), some random funnies

If you want more photos, try Time’s collection of photo essays (timephoto) or Telegraph’s (tlgpoy, tlgtop).

If you are the analytical type, you can meditate on 5 Qs on the origins of Christmas (5qs). Mac.addicts get their fix from the Mac Giving Tree, which has application icons that start glowing with promotion codes (mgt) – if there are none around you, try the list of 6 green gadgets (6gg). Astronomers claim that Jesus was born in June (junechrist). GE Unveils the World’s First OLED Christmas Tree (geoled). Santa is likely pulled by all-female reindeer, finds Discovery, dealing yet another blow to patriarchy (discrndr). And if they dare to be transgendered or unidentified, NORAD is purposely tracking them (wrdnrd). A leftist artist created Christmas decorations commemorating President’s Bush impeachment and they were accepted by the White House staff, who probably did not inspect them (rlso).

No Christmas would be complete without its share of weird news.
