Ah, the holidays. It's the perfect time of the year to whip up some hot cocoa, buy yourself something fancy and gift wrap your cat.
It's also the only time it's not weird to keep a little toy elf in various places and positions around your home.
If you haven't dusted off your Elf on the Shelf – delighting children since the book came out in 2005 – take a peek inside Busy Philipps's home. The holiday tradition calls for festive partakers to hide a toy elf around the house, where it will spy on you and tell santa if you've been naughty or nice. You believe in magic, right?

We know you were busy rocking around the Christmas tree (read: picking up last-minute presents) this weekend. So when you're done with that candy cane, here's what you missed:
5. All We Want for Christmas Is …... Mariah Carey's festive (and very, very sexy) red robe! Hey, the weather outside may be frightful, but that didn't stop the singer from showing off what she's been hiding under her winter coat on Instagram.
See her red-hot snapshot.

Do you think Mariah Carey is on the "nice" or the "naughty" list this year?
After a snowy family outing in Aspen with 2½-year-old twins Monroe and Moroccan, the singer took to Instagram on Sunday to show her fans just what's under her winter coat.
"Warming up for the hot tub moments!" she captioned her showy snapshot, in which she matches her red robe to her undergarments (and fluffy heels!). The singer also shared a photo of herself walking her dog in the snow, wearing a bikini (you know, as you do).

Apparently Kendra Wilkinson's son, Hank IV, was a good boy this year.
The pregnant reality star's 4-year-old got a visit from the big man himself, Santa Claus, just in time to pose for the family's holiday card along with his mom and dad, Hank Baskett.
Posing in front of an ornate, gift-adorned Christmas tree, Baskett was clad in red suit and tie pajamas, while Wilkinson, 28, concealed her baby bump in comfy-looking animal-print PJs. Their son wore (what else?) a Spider-Man costume.

When Sofia Vergara sings, something amazing happens – people laugh.
The Colombian bombshell may be a 10 as far as looks go, but when it comes to carrying a tune, well, let's just say she gets points for trying.
The 41-year-old performed a unique rendition of "Jingle Bells" in an Instagram video captured by her Modern Family costar Jesse Tyler Ferguson.
"I feel this this will be a new holiday tradition. @sofiavergara caroling for us," he wrote.

As well as getting Prince George ready for his first Christmas, the Duchess of Cambridge is planning her festive wardrobe. And what a wardrobe it will be – around a dozen outfit changes over three days.
So, what does one wear when dining with Queen Elizabeth?
The festivities begin on Christmas Eve, when the royals exchange presents and enjoy their traditional turkey lunch. We can imagine Kate in something elegant and refined with a hint of glamour – typical of one of her favorite designers, Emilia Wickstead.

We weren't really sure what we wanted for the holidays. We told our friends and loved ones to just cover a cat in wrapping paper and call it a day.
But now we know what we want – no, what we need – this year: Penguins. And they have to be dressed up like Santa.
The feathery (and festive!) fellas got into the spirit of the season at South Korea's Everland theme park. Each day until Christmas, visitors are greeted with a mini penguin parade, reports Reuters.
