Laws Broken: Home Alone

Laws Broken: Home Alone

We already think that Kevin McAllister’s deadly booby traps in Home Alone should have been enough to land him in juvy, but as LegalEagle points out, Kevin’s battery charges are only the tip of the law-breaking iceberg in the holiday classic.

Comedy Classic: Santa Conan

Comedy Classic: Santa Conan

Team Coco dug up this holiday classic from the 12/23/1993 episode of Late Night with Conan O’Brien, in which our lovable host let some children sit on his lap and asked them what they wanted for Christmas. Of course, their requests were a little different than the usual video games, dolls, and footballs.

Ritzy Animation’s amusing short film follows the journey of a down-on-his-luck Rudolph the Red-nosed Reindeer after he’s retired from Santa’s crew. But Rudy gets inspired to clean up his act, and again become the powerful sled-puller he once was. Naturally, there’s a training montage.

Det Cord Holidays

Det Cord Holidays

To celebrate the holiday season and the end of the year, the folks over at FullMag and Black Rifle Coffee headed to the firing range to blow some stuff up with det cord.

One Christmas at a Long Time Ago

One Christmas at a Long Time Ago

Craig J. Clark created this unofficial music video for Jonathan Coulton and John Roderick’s modern holiday classic One Christmas at a Time, using only footage from the hilariously awful 1978 show The Star Wars Holiday Special, which you must watch if you’ve never seen it before.

Lesser-Known Christmas Characters

Lesser-Known Christmas Characters

(PG-13: Language) “Please remember, I am making none of this up.” We all know about Santa and Krampus, but in Europe there are other Christmas folklore characters that are not so popular. Why? Because they belong more to Halloween, as Sam O’Nella University explains.

A Flaming Lips Christmas

A Flaming Lips Christmas

The Flaming Lips’ ringleader Wayne Coyne loves Christmas, though it’s hard to tell from this surreal “Little Drummer Boy/Peace on Earth” video, an homage (sorta) to the famous David Bowie/Bing Crosby duet.
