As an atheist, it's nice to know that I'm less likely to ever become president than a devout Christian who's cheated on his wife with everything that moves. Hypocrites much? Even as an atheist, I know the Ten Commandments better than some conservative folks.
The mob of red and white runs around cities all over the world, like New York City and San Francisco, to spread tipsy season greetings, sometimes making love connections. To get in the spirit, check out Santa smooches from SantaCons past.
If you're single and you'd like to be in a relationship, this time of year can be excruciating. There can seem to be countless ads showing happy-in-love couples giving one another romantic gifts: Cars with big red bows parked outside the house. Glittering jewelry.

Wow. I mean, wow. I'm not some kind of religious conservative nutjob, but last time I checked, Christmas was a peaceful holiday that's meant to be celebrated with your family. So when I saw this photo gallery of "18 WTF Christmas-Themed Sex Toys" on The Frisky, I rightly thought... WTF.
Obviously, someone is a huge fan of The Wedding Date, the 2005 romantic comedy in which Debra Messing hires sexy Dermot Mulroney to be her plus one at her sister's wedding to make her ex-fiancé jealous.
