Twitter's #WarOnChristmas is different this year: Sam Sykes has created an avalanche of atrocities. Peppermint-tinged, sleighbell-ringing atrocities.
SamSykesSwears: I have but one request this Christmas, guys. Take the #WarOnChristmas hashtag and fill it with accounts of the horrors of battling elves across snowy fields and firing anti-aircraft missiles at sleds streaking overhead.
CanadianChick: The Ninjabread Men were the worst. You didn't know they were surrounding you. just before they attacked you'd get a whiff of molasses & spice. For a split-second you were a kid again, and then all hell broke loose #WarOnChristmas Peter Cullen Bryan: I remember my first tour. The boy next to me, tinsel spilling out of his belly. Those dreadful bells that meant the next wave was incoming. The sound of carols mingling with dying screams. We fought then so that future generations wouldn't have to, but we failed. #WarOnChristmas Matt C: My dearest Helga, I write this to you as the sound of peppermint bombs explode in the distance. It's cold here in the north pole, but the good folks at Starbucks have been warming us with full cups of joe. Tomorrow we press toward jingle bell Bay. #WarOnChristmas

Poor Kristen Wiig. Every time she's booked on The Tonight Show she's bumped for other celebrities, like Peyton Manning, Khaleesi from Game of Thrones (previously), JoJo from The Bachelorette, and Michael Jordon, who are all definitely not Kristen Wiig in disguise.

Derrick Lin creates vignettes of the daily grind using miniatures and office supplies, then photographs them with his iPhone: "Working in advertising, I constantly have to deal with chaos and curveballs thrown at me from every direction. Seeing the absence of a proper outlet, I decided to challenge myself to turn those little mundane and frustrating moments I have at work into visual stories and inject humor in them," he adds. "The best medium I found for those 'little voices in my head' was the miniature figures. I then started utilizing them as a manifestation of my honest thoughts in a metaphorical or exaggerated way and started my photography series on Instagram."
