Pictures with Santa? Sure, we all took them as kids, with our siblings, until about age nine or ten, right? Well, not these two brothers! I'm loving this photo collection of two brothers (now, with kids of their own) that have photos with Santa, 34 straight years. Yes, 34 straight years. I think my favorite is 1987, the Santa in that pic really cracks me up!

Take a look at the photos and full story from Chris Chaberski. I'm so mad at my sister and me for stopping our photos with Santa when I was in middle school. This could have been us, ha!

The Christmas Dickey Will Never Die

No matter who you are, you know you've worn one, and for some odd reason, you only wore it around Christmas. I'm talking about the dickey. Yes, funny name, but it's a Christmas sweater must! It's simple, you have a holiday sweater, but, like me, you hate wearing a whole turtleneck, so you need a dickey. Here's the crazy part, finding one in 2013 is not easy.
