Holiday travel is awful.
You're lugging around a bulky coat. The lines at the airport are unbearable. And there's always someone insufferable on your plane (and, usually, sitting right next to you).
But it doesn't have to be an express jet to hell. This year, WestJet pulled off the sweetest "miracle" for passengers, with a little help from Santa and his elves (er, their employees). Santa asked passengers what they wanted for Christmas – only to find their presents coming down the baggage shoot when they arrived at their destination.
Plus: Another video that will make you weep, more that will make you laugh, the trailer for the Dr. Who Christmas special, and more of the most important random things online.

Is there an unofficial contest going on in Hollywood we don't know about?
First, Kelly Clarkson released an awkward family Christmas photo. Then, Mena Suvari. Now, we have Joe Jonas.
The middle JoBro posted this, um, thought-provoking photo to his Instagram account on Thursday, depicting himself as several years (decades?) older and without most of his thick dark hair.

These days, the holiday season is really about peppermint-flavored everything and cats. But mostly cats.
We have cats in Christmas trees. Cats in Santa hats hating Christmas. Cats in Santa hats loving ... you get the point.
But some festive felines in Red Hook, Brooklyn, are taking their holiday cheer to biblical proportions. That's right – they're turning a local residence's nativity scene into a cat-ivity scene.

Need a little pick-me-up this holiday season?
Look no further than the scores of "layaway Santas" who are flooding the stores this holiday and proving that the Christmas spirit truly does live in the hearts of many Americans.
The way layaway Santas work is simple: do-gooders visit stores that have a layaway department, such as Wal-Mart, Kmart or Toys "R" Us, and offer to pay off the holiday layaway bills of others who are struggling to save enough to put presents under the tree.

Prince George as a reindeer! Prince Harry as Santa Claus! The Duke and Duchess of Cambridge spoiling their firstborn with tiny sneakers, cute stuffed Corgis and other Christmas presents!
George's first Christmas with the royal family at Sandringham should be quite the occasion this month. And hopefully it's half as festive as these photos, taken by spoof photographer Alison Jackson and featuring familiar lookalikes of the royal family.

Kelly Clarkson struck Internet gold yesterday when she Tweeted her family's awkward Christmas photo with new husband Brandon Blackstock and stepchildren Savannah and Seth.
But there's another celebrity holiday card that may be even more awkward, and we'd like to shed some light on it.
American Pie actress Suvari posted this photo to Instagram on Monday, and upon first glance, all we can think is maybe she found some inspiration in Miley Cyrus's American Music Awards performance last month. The star's cat, Blanca, appears front and center in the pic, floating above her and boyfriend Sal Sanchez much like Cyrus's infamous lip-syncing feline.

In the photo, the new family – along with their two dogs – are wrapped in Christmas decorations and awkwardly stare at Santa Claus, who is seated next to them in front of a fire place.
