As you get set to visit with your entire extended family this holiday season, here’s a little something to keep in your memory bank: According to a survey, 73% of adults find it easier to relate to strangers online than to people they know in real life. The recent OnePoll survey of 2,000 people in the US found that 45% say that’s because they’re more comfortable communicating in written and visual form. 43% say they can chat with their virtual pals for longer periods of time. And more than a third (35%) feel a strong sense of community when discussing their favorite media, such as movies and books, online.

Champagne sales are expected to reach a new record this year, despite inflation that could have made consumers shun the expensive bubbly. Champagne sales reached an all-time high last year at $6.05 billion as the relaxation of pandemic-related curbs fueled a surge in exports. And David Chatillon, chairman of the Union of Champagne Houses, home to some of the most famous Champagne makers, said: “We will very likely beat this record again and 2022 will be the new champagne record.”BIG

SCOOP OF THE DAY: Brought to you by

Some companies are putting a new twist on candy canes with unconventional flavor offerings like hot dogs, brisket and sardines. One company, Archie McPhee, really thought outside the box and developed a sardine-flavored treat — and, yes, people eat them, according to the company. Archie McPhee is also responsible for other odd flavors like macaroni and cheese, bacon, kale, hot dogs, sour cream and onion, and butter, but the pickles-flavored candy cane is their best seller.

This Christmas enthusiast got exactly what he wished for this year: A Guinness World Record. Joel Strasser of Kuna, Idaho, earned the record for most baubles in a beard, when he managed to attach 710 tiny ornaments to his face, says Guinness. “Beardaments” are colorful, clip-on facial hair accessories that were featured on “Shark Tank” — and fast became a tacky holiday fashion trend. It took Strasser 2½ hours to assemble the baubles onto his beard, and over an hour to remove them. The baubles used add up to about 5 pounds. He holds 10 other Guinness Records for putting things in his beard, including most paper straws (534), most chopsticks (520), most golf tees (607), most forks (126), most toothpicks (3,500), most clothespins (359) and most chopsticks (86).

You lose most of your body heat from your head: Nope. Heat loss is closely related to surface area, and the head has only about 9% of the body’s surface area. On the other hand, if the rest of you is all covered up and your head isn’t, then you DO lose most of your heat from your head.

To warm up, sip coffee or brandy: Caffeine and alcohol hinder the body’s ability to produce heat. They can also cause your core temperature to drop. Instead, drink warm water, or something with sugar.

Cold weather can cause you to catch cold: Can we put this to rest right now? You catch cold from a virus, not from cold temperatures.

Rub your fingers or toes to warm them: Wiggle them instead. If exposed skin becomes cold, cover it with a warm hand until it feels better. Rubbing can cause tissue damage.

You should resist shivering: Shivering means that your body is trying to warm up, and that’s good. In fact, shivering can triple your body’s heat production.

If I’m cold, you must be cold too: Age, gender, fitness level and acclimatization all determine when you “feel” cold. And women generally feel cold before men do, possibly because they have less heat-generating ability.
