It’s a Charlie Brown Christmas!
For this year’s family Christmas party, I wanted to make something adorable for a change. And what’s cuter than Charlie Brown at Christmas?
My family and I watch the special every year, which is easier now since DVR was invented.
Fact Time: Chuck himself is a mixture of Fondant/Modeling Chocolate and Snoopy’s dog house is chocolate-cocoa cake with vanilla cream frosting. The miserable tree is wire and fondant. All the black accents were painted on. Took about 2 days all together!
Merry Christmas and Happy Holidays from Nerdache Cakes!

We’ve all just received an awesome Christmas present from the one and only Pee-wee Herman: From now through January 12, 2014, the 1988 “Pee-wee’s Playhouse Christmas Special" is free to watch in its entirety on YouTube.
We’re a very lucky bunch of boys and girls. Thanks Pee-wee!

We’ve shared a few different Dalek Christmas trees here over the years, but now, thanks to John Smith, we get to watch a Dalek decorate a tree of its own in this short video E-card entitled “A Very Dalek Christmas”.
How does a murderous cyborg trim a Christmas tree? We don’t want to spoil the surprise, but let’s just say it’s going to be quite a toasty holiday for this particular Dalek. This awesome little video couldn’t be more perfectly titled.
Grant Snider of Incidental Comics just answered a burning question that arises every time we hear or sing “Rudolph the Red-Nosed Reindeer”. What are all those Reindeer Games that Rudolph isn’t allowed to join in? (Besides Monopoly, of course.)
Now we wish we could play with Santa’s flying reindeer too. Their games are awesome.

Christmas isn’t complete without at least one viewing of the 1965 TV special A Charlie Brown Christmas. The folks at Mashable recently used a flashmob of Peanuts players to treat unsuspecting New Yorkers to a real-life recreation of the theatre dance number, starting with Schroeder and his tiny piano sitting down in the snow to play Vince Guaraldi’s wonderfully familiar tune “Linus and Lucy”.
If you know this scene as well as we do, you’ll delight in identifying characters based on their singular dance moves. Suddenly it feels even more like Christmas around here.
If all the commercialism of the holiday season stresses you out and gets you down, remember that Festivus is here for the rest of us. Grab your aluminum pole, get ready to air your grievances and demonstrate great feats of strength, and always be on the lookout for miracles.
Don’t worry if you can’t remember all of the traditional Festivus practices. PorchDrinking created this helpful infographic and an entertaining and informative guide to celebrating “The holiday for the rest of us.”
Just in time for Christmas, Jason Freeny (previously featured here) has turned his artistic dissection skills from toys back to sweets to reveal the internal anatomy of a gingerbread man with an awesome new anatomy schematic print entitled Gingerbread Man Dissected.
