So what’s YOUR plan? To watch your intake of treats and sweets (and egg nog) over the holidays, in an ultimately vain attempt at maintaining your waistline – or thoroughly enjoying yourself, and letting the flab fall where it may – and worry about it in the New Year? Three-quarters of us are choosing door #2, according to a new survey. 72% of the 2,000 Americans surveyed say they want to make the most of the rest of 2023, regardless of what that means for their diet. That number is WAAAY up from 54% in last year’s survey. In the 6th annual “Writing Off the End of the Year” survey, respondents said the expect to gain 8 (that’s right – EIGHT!) pounds (3.6kg) before the end of the year — compared to 5½ pounds (2.4kg) last year. Now for the fun part:

50% of respondents admit to having eaten so much during the holiday season that they’ve had to undo a button on their pants or loosen a belt.

35% said they have even eaten until they felt sick or full to bursting.

47% said they have eaten more than 3 meals in a day.

42% have eaten more than one dessert at a meal.

and 59% have eaten more than one of the same meals in a day.

Adam Sandler has revealed that his iconic ‘Chanukah Song’ was supposed to have been sung by Roseanne Barr. He introduced The Chanukah Song in 1994 during the “Weekend Update” segment on “Saturday Night Live.” Although he wrote the holiday tune himself, Sandler revealed in an interview with Access Hollywood that Roseanne Barr — who was hosting that week — almost performed the song on the late-night show. Quote: “She was nice enough to say ‘no, let Adam do that, that’s his, he wrote it, that’s his song.’”

Salma Hayek says her family always celebrate a “fake” Christmas to balance her and her husband’s cultures. She told Entertainment Tonight: “We have to fake one of the days because we have Christmas, Mexican style, with my family, and then we have French style with (husband Francois-Henri-Pinault’s) family.” She is the producer of the new festive film “El Sabor de la Navidad” – which translates to “The Flavor of Christmas” — which features 3 separate stories of families and friends trying to balance tradition and progression along with the idea of acceptance, as they try to honor a love for Mexican food.

Are you waiting to see ‘Frasier Crane’ make a triumphant return to his old bar “Cheers” in the “Frasier” revival? You might as well be waiting to catch a glimpse of Norm’s wife Vera. Paramount+’s revival finds Kelsey Grammer‘s character moving back to Boston, where he spent a decade sitting on barstools on Cheers. But in a new interview, Grammer pours cold beer on the idea of Frasier checking in on the old gang. Quote: “I don’t think we should do that. We don’t want to desecrate a national monument.” He added that the decision not to go back is a testament to how highly they regard the original Cheers series, saying: “I think we honor it by excluding it.”

WEIRD NEWS: Brought to you by

NFL superstar QB Patrick Mahomes has confirmed that he’s worn the same pair of underwear every game day for his entire NFL career. What’s more, he claims he only washes the underpants when the team loses — which isn’t very often these days, given Kansas City’s record this year of 7 wins, 2 losses. Why does he do this? He told ESPN’s “Manningcast”: (My) wife Brittany got them for me, so…I have to wear them. At the same time, I threw them on that first season, we had a pretty good season.” His underwear’s rookie campaign was 2017.
