What’s the worst Christmas song? We asked our Facebook fans, and over 800 of them answered.

Whether it’s a Roomba, an EcoVac, or a cheap Anker like what I’ve got—they’re nothing more than infant-sized metal-and plastic turds that push small piles of dirt around and scream when they cannot figure out what “rugs” are.

You finally snagged the toy that’s been on the top of your kid’s Christmas wishlist for months—now you just have to wrap it up, shove it under the tree and bask in parental pride. (“Fine work, me.

They say you never know what you’re going to get when you put up a monster for a blind trade within Wonder Trade, but let’s be real, nine times out of ten, you’ll be sent low-level garbage. For the holiday season, benevolent Pokémon fans want to make sure Wonder Trade ups its game, though.
As people around the world fill garbage cans and dumpsters with discarded bits of colorful paper, we take a look back at the wonderful things we gave and got during the 2015 holiday season. In other words, what’d ya get? I’ll go first.
