Christmas spirit is just a click away
Christmas is all about giving: gifts of kindness and hilarity.
A festive foursie
Fact: Christmas loungewear isn’t just for humans. Ascot Racecourse has created a Christmas foursie (just like a onesie) for a Shetland pony called Daffy. The tailor-made garment makes him look ridiculously cute and it helps him stay warm. Everyone is winning.
Jackie Rowberry, Daffy’s owner, said: ‘In winter I always worry about Daffy getting chilly as he likes to spend so much time out of his stable.
‘I love the fact that Ascot has created a special foursie for Daffy so that he can get into the Christmas spirit. He’s loved all the attention and is quite the envy among his stable buddies!’

Christmas Word Games
Board games and wintery evenings go together like gin and tonic. This Christmas ad from Scrabble will fill you with warmth and wonder. Antigrams are just so cool. Happy holidays.
320 sufers dressed in Santa outfits descended on Sydney’s Bondi Beach on Tuesday. It might be the height of summer right now but that doesn’t stop Australians from dressing up like their favourite snowscape-dwelling old man. The team at Guinness World Records has confirmed this merry band has broken the record for the largest ever surf lesson. The community held the event in partnership with local charity OneWave, in a bid to raise awareness about mental health issues.
Goats sing carols
A whole Christmas album sung by goats? You bet such thing exists. It’s all thanks to charity ActionAid who have put together the collection of songs, entitled All I Want For Christmas Is Goat
