Break out the Glitter – Holiday posts

by V. Buritsch-Tompkins

To celebrate the season, I thought I might post to a few different holiday articles from this month.

First, Slate has decided that glitter beards are a thing.  You can read about it here.

Redbook’s round up on Christmas Cards started with a repost of Kelly Clarkson’s Instagram holiday greeting to the internet.  (Spoiler: The Internet approves.)

Jezebel pointed out that Target missed the mark by being insensitive about how OCD is portrayed in society.  Similar to other misunderstood mental conditions, OCD, Depression, and Social Anxiety, it helps to understand that they are often serious with life-altering behaviors.  While this has “Bad Dad Joke” quality, it was still in poor taste.

Speaking of Ugly Christmas Sweaters, I’d forgotten that Cute Overload existed until this week. But this made its rediscovery worthwhile.
