If there’s one thing parents of young kids can count on, it’s that they won’t be sleeping in on Christmas morning. But what time does the average child get up on December 25? We’ve got the results of a new survey – and they might surprise you. 2,000 parents were polled and it was determined that the overall average wake-up time on Christmas morning is 6:44am. And no surprise here: Parents of younger children (aged 2-6) will be up earliest – with most wide awake by 6:45am. Parents of teens get some relief. Teenagers are the least likely to be up before their parents, with just 15% moving before 7am. Parents also shared their tricks and tips for encouraging excited children to go to bed on Christmas Eve. One in 5 said they’ll cut off sugary treats a few hours before bed. 22% will limit the amount of time the kids spend on their devices, and 1 in 6 said they’ll put on a boring Christmas movie to help everyone calm down. Extreme measures employed by some parents include warning the kids that “Santa won’t come if you’re still awake”, and telling them they will end up on Santa’s “Naughty List” if they don’t go to bed.

A study published this week by the American Psychological Association found that 77% of us have accepted an unwanted invitation to a holiday event solely to avoid ramifications for missing it. An expert says that doing so is a fast track to exasperating yourself to the point where you probably won’t even enjoy the most wonderful time of year. Lead study author Julian Givi said: “Across our experiments, we consistently found that invitees overestimate the negative ramifications that arise in the eyes of inviters following an invitation decline.” He says while you shouldn’t be afraid to turn down invites in order to avoid holiday burnout, remember that “spending time with others is how relationships develop, so don’t decline every invitation.”

Start practicing your ‘Red Light, Green Light’, because “Squid Game: The Challenge” is coming back for another season. Netflix renewed the reality show on Wednesday, ahead of the Season 1 finale.

Fox is ringing in the new year by turning back the clock. The network has announced that on Jan. 1, it will air “M*A*S*H: The Comedy That Changed Television”, a 2-hour special featuring new interviews with surviving cast members Alan Alda, Gary Burghoff, Jamie Farr, Mike Farrell and Loretta Swit, as well as EPs Gene Reynolds and Burt Metcalfe. In what’s being called the “definitive” look back at the Emmy-winning series, which aired on CBS from 1972-1983, the retrospective will also include “never-before-seen behind-the-scenes footage, photos and stories.
ABC announced last week that it has canceled “Station 19”, but fans aren’t having it. In the hopes of the network might pull a CBS with a reverse cancelation, they have started a Change.org petition to save the show. The petition says the show is important because it “was one of the few shows on network television showing LGBTQIA+ representation.” At last check, the petition had just over 17,000 signatures, with it’s latest goal set at 25,000.

Every holiday season, eco-conscious consumers ask themselves the same question: What kind of Christmas tree is the most sustainable? A London company is offering to let you “rent” the same tree year after year. You can order a pot-grown Norway Spruce online or pick it in person, and then enjoy it for the festive season, and return it after Christmas. London Christmas Tree Rental will then replant it, allowing it to grow for the year, before returning it to you to use again. When a reused tree reaches 7 feet tall, the company “retires” it, and replants it back in its original forest. LINK: https://www.londonchristmastreerental.com/
