One of the reasons we love the holidays so much is that there are tons of ways we can celebrate. Ugly Christmas sweater parties probably rank at the top of our favorites, just because wearing the ugliest cardigan ever in the name of holiday spirit is strangely fun. So what ranks towards the bottom of our favorites list? Office parties.
On Christmas morning, there's nothing worse than getting a bad reaction to one of your presents. This is especially prevalent among the younger crowd, particularly those under age 12. Why? Well, the kiddos don't necessarily have an understanding of faking appreciation and re-gifting later, so it just comes off as bratty behavior.
There's something about the holidays that puts a lot of us here at TheFW into extra crafty moods. Maybe it's all those awesome Etsy decorations we so wish we could copy or just the fact we're feeling particularly festive this time of year. Either way, trying to get all creatively crafty is just plain old fun.
It's been one hell of a great beer week for us. We've learned which brews are awesome gifts (and apology presents for grabbing the wrong "Christmas hams" at the office party) and which ale we should choose to celebrate the impending end of the world. Now, we're stoked to bring you the so-called "world's best beer."
For most of us here in the good ol' USA, winter means cold, cold weather. While a lot of the time that can really stink, it can also mean the arrival of snow, and we all know that's the best part of the wintry months! Snow angels are possible, intense snowball fights happen and (probably most importantly) snowmen can be made.
Is there really anything better than giving or getting a high five? No way! Ok, there are tons of more awesome things. But when it comes to the complimenting game, high fives reign supreme. It's like a super-charged boost of confidence and the best way to show someone they rule.
Contrary to popular belief, photobombing is super hard, and it requires a lot of skill. For starters, you have to get the timing down perfectly and do it so no one posing actually notices your moves leading up to the photobomb.
Ladies and gentleman, we're back at it again -- it's another round of dogs in holiday costumes. This time, however, there's a huge difference-- we're not responsible in the least bit! See, these dogs did it all to themselves.
With Christmas only two weeks away, Santa is a pretty busy guy these days. He has to double check all presents are made, organize final copies of the naughty and nice lists and do some last-minute reindeer grooming so they're in tip-top shape for Christmas. It's a stressful few weeks, but Santa's been doing it for like, hundreds of years, so he has the whole thing down pat.
If there's one thing you need to know about us here at TheFW, it's that we love to find any excuse to dress up animals. This is especially true during the holiday season, because festive puppies and cats are like, the best things ever.
