Police in Wisconsin are currently looking for a very festive thief who was spotted stealing bacon and beer while wearing a Santa hat. The suspect – whose belly may be shaking like a bowlful of jelly, and pork and beer, by now – was caught in the act by surveillance cameras at the Kwik Trip convenience store on the afternoon of Dec. 9th. Police say the man first concealed several beer bottles in his festive-looking sweater before shoving several pounds of bacon into his less festive pants. He then left without making a purchase. Officers are now asking anyone who may recognize the suspect to contact the Saukville Police Department. He was last spotted leaving the Kwik Trip in a large van, not a sleigh driven by Budweiser Clydesdales. (

The story goes that some time ago, a man punished his 3-year-old daughter for wasting a roll of gold wrapping paper. Money was tight and he became infuriated when the child tried to decorate a box to put under the Christmas tree. Nevertheless, the little girl brought the gift to her father the next morning and said, "This is for you, Daddy." He was embarrassed by his earlier overreaction, but his anger flared again when he found the box was empty. He yelled at her, "Don't you know when you give someone a present, there's supposed to be something inside it?" The little girl looked up at him with tears in her eyes and said, "Oh, Daddy, it's not empty, I blew kisses into the box. All for you, Daddy." The father was crushed. He put his arms around his little girl, and he begged for her forgiveness. It is told that the man kept that gold box by his bed for years and whenever he was discouraged, he would take out an imaginary kiss and remember the love of the child who had put it there.
TO GIVE OR NOT TO GIVE (From Men's Health magazine)
  • Postman: can't accept gifts worth more than $20, so get him a couple of movie passes or a restaurant gift certificate.
  • Trashman: Five bucks each in a nice card.
  • Paper Carrier: $5 minus the cards.
  • Secretary: Work related. Fancy pen, classy desk clock or a nice organizer.
  • Co-Workers: Gift certificates, picture frames, a pretty candle.
Boss: Go in with everybody else for a group gift. Anything else is just schmoozing.
The song "White Christmas" was introduced in the 1942 movie "Holiday Inn".... and it was almost cut out of the final version of the movie! Bing Crosby's "White Christmas" -- one of the most popular songs of all time. The movie "White Christmas", starring Crosby and Danny Kaye, didn't debut until 1954. It was the first movie to be made in Vista Vision, a deep-focus process.

12-year-old Jimmy Boyd is famous for singing the Christmas song, "I saw Momy Kissing Santa Claus." The song hit the top of the pop charts.

Santa didn't get a sleight until 1822. He wasn't fat before then either. Originally Santa Claus was not regarded as the rotund gift bearer in an airborne sled that we all know today. It was Clement Clark Moore's 1822 poem that first promoted this image.

Where did the word "Christmas" originate? The Nativity of Christ was introduced as a special feast in Rome about the middle of the 4th century. The word "Christmas" can be traced back to 1038 to the "Mass of Christ," in old English pronounced "Cristes Maesse."

How did the word “Yuletide” originate? The word "Yuletide" originated from the word "Yule", which was recorded In Latin writings as early as A.D. 726. At that time, the form of the word was "guili". Both terms refer to a 12-day pagan feast celebrated around the time of year that has come to be known as the Christmas season.

A female thief who took an Amazon box from a porch in Shamokin, Pennsylvania got a big surprise when she opened it. Robert Lynch, from whose porch the box was taken at 7:00 a.m. last Wednesday, said the package was filled with cat poop he'd forgotten to put out with his trash. “Whoever it was got cat poop for Christmas,” he said. The “porch pirate,” as he calls the thief, was caught on his home security system, which he'd installed after two thefts of coins and tools from his vehicle. The video shows a woman with a large backpack and carrying something covered with a blanket. She is seen looking at the house, walking past, and then returning. She did not go onto the porch. When she was unable to maneuver the box through a wrought iron fence, she slid the box along the porch to the steps where she could pick it up.

The UPS Store deleted a meant-to-be-funny tweet about destroying letters to Santa after critics slammed it as too dark. “If your child addresses a letter to the North Pole, you can leave it with us. We do shredding,” read the tweet, which was posted Sunday. But the naughty gag outraged some parents, who called it a Grinch-like faux pas. “Why not just punch the little kid in the face, while yelling ‘there is no such thing as Santa?’” one critic blasted. Another person tweeted, “I hope any kids aren’t reading this.” The firm yanked down the tweet Monday after noticing, “things were going in the wrong direction,” a rep told BuzzFeed. Public relations representative Staci Reidinger said, “We did not want to take away from the magic of Christmas. The tweet was just to get people laughing.” (

An Alabama second-grader didn't want her fellow classmates to go without this holiday season. So she took it upon herself to give everyone a present. Abby Henderson gave each of the 430 students at Southview Primary School in Opelika, Alabama, a gift that included a toy, pencils, candy and a holiday cup. Her mom says the 8 year old paid for the $200 in supplies by doing jobs around the house between Thanksgiving and the beginning of the Christmas break.


What's all this hectic rush and worry?
Where go these crowds who run and scurry?
Why all the lights - the Christmas trees?
The jolly "fat man," tell me please!
Why, don't you know?  This is the day
For parties and for fun and play;
Why this is Christmas!

So this is Christmas, did you say?
But where is Christ this Christmas Day?
Has He been lost among the throng?
His voice drowned out by empty song?
No, He's not here - you'll find Him where
Some humble soul now kneels in prayer,
Who knows the Christ of Christmas.

But see the many aimless thousands who gather on this Christmas Day,
Whose hearts have never yet been opened, or said to Him, "Come in to stay."
In countless homes the candles burning,
In countless hearts expectant yearning
For gifts and presents, food and fun,
And laughter till the day is done.
But not a tear of grief or sorrow
For Him so poor He had to borrow
A crib, a colt, a boat, a bed
Where He could lay His weary head.
I'm tired of all this empty celebration,
Of feasting, drinking, recreation;
I'll go instead to Calvary.

And there I'll kneel with those who know
The meaning of that manger low,
And find the Christ - this Christmas.

I leap by faith across the years
To that great day when He appears
The second time, to rule and reign,
To end all sorrow, death, and pain.
In endless bliss we then shall dwell
With Him who saved our souls from hell.
And worship Christ - not Christmas!
