Why did “Jingle Bells” get this particular spoof? Spike Jones’s uptempo romp, Yogi Yorgesson (“Yingle Bells“), and the Three Stooges (“Jingle Bells Drag“) showed that “Jingle Bells” could be played for broader comedic effect. As writer Rob Weir documents on his blog, children began applying funny lyrics to the song’s simple rhymes and familiar melody at least as early as the 1950s, while wildly racist versions sprung up in the South in the 1950s and 1960s during the Civil Rights Movement.
'Tis the season for celebrities to get into the Christmas spirit, which means over-the-top trees, gifts, and getups.

I love going all out for the holidays, but what I don’t love is being stuck in the kitchen at my own party. I used to think I had to slave away to be the hostess with the mostest. But the truth is the best parties are the impromptu ones, when you can whip up a few finger foods, shake up some cocktails and mingle with your friends all night long.

Hip-hop fans with a penchant for making culturally relevant fashion statements, rejoice! This season, it seems like the hip-hop-themed ugly holiday sweater is trending, and we couldn’t be happier about it. Whether you’ll be spinning the dreidel or attending Christmas Eve mass this season, there are plenty of ways to let everyone know that not only are you a fan of hip-hop culture, but you also have impeccable taste. Check out some of our favorite hip-hop-themed ugly holiday sweaters above.
Here’s the truth: Deep down, Thanksgiving for celebrities isn’t all that different than the way the rest of us celebrate. They all come together (even if they’re otherwise apart), they snap a few family photos, the gorge on heavy foods, and they all probably made jokes about putting on Adele. We’ve got the pics to prove it.
Kendall and Kylie might be full fledged fashion stars now, but they’re still chugging along with their Topshop collaborations. And while Kristmas is more than a month away, the two got into the holiday spirit early with their newest collection. In June, the Jenners reminded you that they lead a Cali-cool lifestyle (say what?) via their first klothing collection, including henleys stamped with “The Best Coast is the West Coast” and Hawaiian-printed rompers that sold out ASAP.
Ugly Christmas Sweaters might get all the attention during the holiday season, but Hanukkah, the Jewish festival of lights that lasts for eight nights, has some pretty unappealing maillots as well. Caroline Schaeffer Lewis wrote that she’s “disappointed to see that Nordstrom is selling such an offensive item that perpetuates negative stereotypes of Jewish women.” The sweater in question features a menorah on the front with all eight candles lit as well as the shamash (the middle).
Whether you realize it or not, the holidays are officially in full swing. Thanksgiving is a mere two weeks away, department stores are beginning to unveil their much belabored holiday windows, and seasonal merch is everywhere you turn. Among the first to announce its special holiday offerings is Tiffany & Co., which just released a limited-edition 18-piece “Out of Retirement” collection of archival jewelry and trinkets at the cooler-than-thou retail emporium Dover Street Market. “Partnering with Dover Street Market on a global level is a very exciting idea for us,” said Tiffany design director Francesca Amfitheatrof, a very groovy woman with an high art background.
Holidays are for family, celebration, and commemoration, but, let’s be honest, they’re also about clothes. More specifically, buying new ones for all the parties and events that fill up your social calendar from Thanksgiving to New Year’s. The season’s also about eating, but mostly drinking. So Bloomingdale’s combined all of these elements into one add.
