Eleven years ago we were just sitting around watching Christmas Vacation and A Christmas Story (not that those are bad), but then something magical happened. You could call it the Christmas miracle of 2003. Elf hit theaters and your life has never been the same. Forget the fact that it doesn't even need to be Christmas for you to sit down and sing along with Buddy the Elf and Zooey Deschanel.

Congratulations to Hayden Panettiere! The Nashville starlet and her longtime love, Wladimir Klitschko, welcomed a baby girl into the world on Tuesday, Dec. 9. Panettiere is now a mom to daughter Kaya, her and Klitschko's first child. The pint-sized pretty lady's rep told People, "We are over the moon and madly in love!"
Even for people who don't celebrate Christmas, Bob Clark's A Christmas Story has become one of the most famous holiday movies of all time. Every Christmas, TBS brings us a full 24-hours of Ralphie and his quest for a Red Ryder BB Gun. If you haven't seen A Christmas Story yet, do yourself a favor and finally watch it this year because it's a classic and every single human being should see the film at least once.
This epic video series of 2014's biggest stars (including Benedict Cumberbatch, Kristen Stewart and Shailene Woodley) kissing will have you on the edge of your seat. Trust us; you will love this!
If you haven't been following the Sony Pictures leak, you really should be. It's been very entertaining. Basically, some hacker group attacked the company's system and released a bunch of private information. There were upcoming movie release schedules, spreadsheets showing a bunch of movies' actual budgets and actual box office results. But definitely, by far, the most entertaining part were the private emails that were released.
The Golden Globes have been announced! They are here and we will find out the winners in January, but until then we get to write about all the people and shows we love that weren't nominated for a 2015 Golden Globe Award. Before I write about all the people who should have been nominated for a Golden Globe this year, I want to congratulate the people who were nominated because I'm sure that they all deserved it (probably), and I am aware that only five people can be nominated in each category.
Does anyone remember Aaron Carter? He was the younger brother of one of the Backstreet Boys, and for a while, the music industry tried really hard to make him a thing. (If you don't know who he is, go on YouTube and look up some of his stuff. While you're watching it, try to keep in mind that Aaron Carter's career was a serious thing. They weren't messing around or trying to be silly. Those were all serious attempts.)
If you don't know who Nick Offerman is, then you're living your life poorly and you need to fix that. In a world of hipsters, he's bringing manliness back in the best way. He's doing it in a way that makes people that don't agree with him feel to uncomfortable to make eye contact with him. The way things are supposed to be. (Hint: Nick Offerman is a star of Parks And Recreation.)
Parks and Recreation is coming back for one final season, and to be honest, it's a very bittersweet moment for those of us who have spent seven years enjoying the town of Pawnee, Indiana, the parks department, Leslie Knope and Ron Swanson's mustache. (By the way, if you haven't seen Nick Offerman's musical tribute to whiskey, you're missing out.)
A girl that I'm friends with is a huge fan of The Walking Dead, and she talks about the show constantly. One of her favorite parts in the show is Andrew Lincoln as Rick Grimes. She's even gone as far to say that she wishes she was his girlfriend and that he's the love of her life.
