Whether you're home for the Holidays, stuck inside with your roommates and away from family or just bored on Christmas day, I have a list of eight super fun games you can play with family and friends to make this Holiday season feel a little less miserable.
Black cats tend to get a bad rap and I just don't understand it. What about Felix the Cat? And Snowball II from The Simpsons? There's good news though: it's Black Cat Appreciation Day and I've sourced nine great gifts (one for each of those nine lives) that are sure to make any black cat lover purr.
What I like about Etsy is that you can search for categories like "Gifts for Outdoor Enthusiasts," and "Gifts for Best Friends." If you have a particular price point in mind you can search for that. And if you're looking for items that celebrate your love of The Jersey Shore, just type "Jersey Shore" in the search field.
Everyone is always looking for great "stocking stuffers" for the Holidays, so we decided to ask our WOBM listeners what they suggest as great "stuffers" .... Wanna thank everyone for getting "social" with Shawn & Sue

It's so nice when people share their talents with one another. I have friends who this week are busy baking biscotti and cookies that they will give as holiday gifts. Another friend is working on a quilt that she'll give her sweetheart for Christmas. These are all lovely expressions of creativity and caring. And, frankly, they're a nice change from store-bought gifts. Plus, there's no risk of getting a duplicate and having to return one of them. Hats off to those of you who share your crafty, culinary or other creative talents at this time of year!
Do you have a special skill that you like to share with friends and family? Cooking? Sewing? Knitting? Painting? Decorating? Please share in the Comments section.
They say everything old is new again. That seems very true this holiday season with the resurgence of turntables, big headphones and instant print cameras. Have you seen the new Polaroids in the stores? They’re selling their “magic” cameras to a new generation of selfie loving teens...
I'll start with a disclaimer - I'm not a parent. I'm simply an outsider looking in on this phenomena. Although, in fairness, I was a kid once and I remember things being distinctly different than they are today.
