Hooray, it’s Christmas Eve! I did a really good job on getting people gifts this year (if I do say so myself) so I’m so excited to watch everyone open ’em up tomorrow morning. Here’s a big ol’ sleigh-ful of Christmas links to get you in the spirit of the season:d

Time to sit back, relax, and watch the Muppet’s Christmas Carol, also known as the best Christmas movie of all time, yo. All time! There’s ice skating penguins people. ICE SKATING PENGUINS.

Nom nom nom… Gebrannte Mandeln!

Oh Munich, king of christmas markets, I bow down to thee.

Okay Nürnburg, yours aren’t half bad either.

Ahhhh, Krampus is so scary!

While we’re across the pond, the French are not messing around with their Christmas chocolate.

Please tell me you’ve seen the Schwetty Balls SNL skit. “I like to leave Santa some tap water and rice.”

I’m still not over the cute video of Bo inspecting the 2012 White House Christmas decorations.

Speaking of the White House, did you know that they make a gingerbread version of it too for Christmas? Yummmm, political power!

Remember that time the Norwegians ran an insanely long TV special on firewood? Well, they’re at it again, this time with shearing sheep and knitting.

Looking for something to bake today? How about Chocolate Crinkles?!

Happy Holidays everyone! May visions of sugar plums (or the sugary Christmas treat of your choice) dance in your head.
