Friday Find: SNL Holiday Sketches

SNL's seasonal sketches are some of my favorites and there's no shortage of them to choose from. During this crazy time of year, let's take a minute to enjoy some of my favorites. What are yours?

[Obligatory warning that these sketches air on late night TV, so proceed with caution re: subject matter and/or possible language.]

The quality of this video is terrible, but Mark Jensen Family Christmas has forever ruined/bettered It's the Most Wonderful Time of the Year for me. My husband and I crack up every time we hear it because, well, watch. 

This holiday twist on a repeat Justin Timberlake sketch is a fun one:

Peach candle? We've all been the peach candle.

Glengarry Glen Christmas: what's better, the sketch itself or the actors breaking? Doesn't matter. (You call yourself an elf, you sonofabitch?)

There is the Emmy nominated (Do It On My) Twin Bed:

And of course, perhaps the best holiday sketch of all: Pete Schweddy and his delicious balls.

Merry everything!

Friday Find: Yeah, Come Ovah

I often take a bit of a break after my big gift guide goes live in early November. And I did! Then I wrote another gift guide, for rowers! In between, I was busy working, living, and training for my very first real regatta. I could not have asked for a better first regatta, and not just because I brought home silver and gold. The weather was perfect, spirits were high, everything ran smoothly, WE HIT NO TRAFFIC DRIVING TO OR FROM L.A.

Needless to say, I'm still riding that high. 

Let's keep it going by dipping our toes back in with the Friday Find! Specifically, a holiday Friday Find. Please enjoy one of my favorite videos. There is one small moment of language so maybe don't watch it at work, but I hope you enjoy it as much as I do. It is now ten years old, and every year I watch it a line hits me a different way. It reminds me of Boston and so many wonderful things I love about it.

If it says tree on it, that means it's decorations. It needs to come down.

Make it nice around the tree! 

Awwiiiight! Lookit the tree!

Go turn on the tree!

Who wants Bailey's?

Bye tree! It's cold.
