It’s Too Early To Talk About Christmas…Unless We’re Discussing Wine Bottle Trees

It’s Too Early To Talk About Christmas…Unless We’re Discussing Wine Bottle Trees

Blog
'Tis the season to completely skip over Thanksgiving and pretend that Christmas is the next national holiday. Christmas is still more than six weeks away, but already it's taken over store shelves all across the country. It's only a matter of time before all your favorite Christmas songs are put on a repeated loop and become that irritating earworm that simply won't go away. While I may be a holiday procrastinator, some Christmas addicts have already started picking out their perfect Christmas trees, and a brave few have even gone so far as to begin decorating them. While I personally will be focusing on Thanksgiving until it passes, I do sort of wish that I'd planned ahead for Christmas a little bit. Why? Because wine bottle trees exist and I ne...

Every time the Christmas season rolls around and I hear bells, I get a little nostalgic. I belonged to a handbell choir when I was in high school, and I always looked forward to playing Christmas songs during our holiday concerts. It's been many years since I've made music with bells, but now I'm wishing I had this lady's awesome outfit so I could jam out whenever the mood strikes.Julie Sewell must love the winter holiday, because she spent hours putting together a bodysuit with 12 bells on it. Her outfit may seem a little strange at first, but it becomes seriously impressive once she starts playing "Carol of the Bells." Talk about coordination!

Gingerbread houses are a huge part of the holiday season, but have you ever wondered where exactly the idea came from? Gingerbread first became a tradition in Nuremberg, Germany, after it was introduced to Europe during the Crusades in the 11th century. Monks began baking "lebkuchen" cookies in the 14th century. They quickly became a well-known delicacy. The city was so serious about the quality of the treats that it created the "League of Lebkuchen-Bakers," which followed strict guidelines when baking them. These baked goods eventually took the form of houses sometime during the 16th century in Germany. Wikipedia However, gingerbread houses didn't actually become popul...

You know what's fun? Buying people holiday gifts. You know what else is fun? Receiving them. What's not quite as entertaining is wrapping those gifts. If you're anything like me, the efforts of holiday wrapping usually culminate in crumpled paper, wads of tape, and a profound sense of existential dread.One graphic designer by the name of Sheila Wong is well aware of this mess. This year, she decided to create some quirky wrapping paper that would not only help less-than-skilled wrappers cover their heaping piles of presents, but would allow them do so in a way that'd completely baffle their loved ones. It's the best of both worlds, people. Wong started the project so that she could "mix things up a bit." Imgur / Zannrael While she could ea...

Let’s Be Honest, Santa Is Kind Of Scary…And These Kids Totally Know It

All kids love the idea of getting presents from Santa Claus, but meeting the man, the myth, the legend? That's a different story entirely. Despite his jolly reputation, there's something a bit spooky about him. The red suit, white beard, and bellowing laugh makes for an imposing figure, yet kids are encouraged to crawl onto his lap and smile for a photo. It's no wonder that many break down and show just how terrified they really are. These 16 kids know just how scary Santa can be. After seeing their photos, I can't help but feel a bit traumatized by Old Saint Nick myself! 1. Nothing says happy holidays like having a breakdown on Santa's lap. 2. "Mother! Father! Why have you forsaken me?" 3. I bet this kid needed a lot ...

An elf named Buddy once said, "The best way to spread Christmas cheer is singing loud for all to hear." Apparently, these people took that message to heart. While sitting in a mall food court and listening to a Christmas classic come on over the loud speaker, something happened that made them stand up and do something special. These mall patrons will never forget what they saw. These people truly can sing! Why don't I see that when I go out? Merry Christmas, everyone!Read more: http://www.viralnova.com/christmas-flash-mob/
