If our traffic reports are any indication, you are excited about the holidays. Questions about Santa, Christmas trees and Advent are some of our most popular this month. Here are the holiday questions you’re searching for and clicking on most this season:
And just for fun, here’s one that made us laugh: What is Grinch Mean Time?
Happy holidays from the Answers.com team!
The temperature is dropping, the snow is whirling around, and frost-bitten vendors are selling honey-roasted peanuts on the street corner. It’s that time of year again; The time to show your holiday warmth and spread that selfless, super fuzzy holiday cheer.
I’ll tell you what Xmas means…It’s SANTA LETTER WRITING TIME! Yay!
I want an iPhone!
I want Guitar Hero! I want a bulldog.
I want Skittles for breakfast. I want to fly to Hollywood and meet Robert Pattinson!
I want, I want… I WANT to fly to space (only $200,000 now!)
And while you’re at it Santa, I want a year’s supply of astronaut ice cream!
Just let it out! All year long you helped old ladies cross the road, you found lost puppies and brought them back to their owners! You never Jay-walked. You ate asparagus because it made your momma proud. You helped your little sister with homework, and you always threw your gum out in the garbage, even if the garbage can was at the end of the block. You donated your allowance to worthy causes like cancer research and heck, you even walked along the sidewalk so that you wouldn’t hurt the grass— because that’s the kind of person YOU are.
So now is your chance to ask for everything and anything you want. Santa is known to give good girls and boys anything their heart desires… (he also happens to be a huge fan of Answers.com).
So go ahead, tell Santa what you want for Christmas!
I don’t know about you, but I am all bundled up in a new fleece I received, drinking a steaming cup of hot cocoa and reading through all kinds of questions and answers under the Christmas category. Better catch up before the day rushes by and before you know it, we’ll all be focused on the next big thing… (our new Wii Fits and New Year’s resolutions?)
Here are some samples to get you started:
Wishing everyone happy holidays!
Uh oh! We’re coming dangerously close to running out of time for buying those last-minute gifts. Haven’t bought your dear old dad something yet? Perhaps I can help. Here are some gift ideas he might like, without you worrying about delivery time. Brought to you by WikiAnswers Wednesday.
What are some good gift ideas for Christmas for fathers?
Here goes… Let’s hope my dad’s not reading this, or it might ruin the surprise.
- The gift of retro. Go into his closet when he’s not around. Pull out one of those 80′s print button down shirts. Wrap it up in a nice box. Tell him retro is back and you thought he’d appreciate a kick-start.
- The gift of what you know he likes. Take a look at what he’s snacking on when he comes over tonight to celebrate. Slyly take back the rest of the bowl/tray/pan and dump it in a nice box. Wrap it up, hand it over. Make sure it’s not liquid, first.
- The gift of what you know he lacks. Go out back to dad’s shed. Pick out an old tool he hasn’t used in a while. Dust it off, polish it up, put a ribbon around it, and tell him you were looking for it in his toolbox the other day and couldn’t find it, so you figured he needed a new one.
That’s all I got for now. You can also try this stuff with the dog, especially if it’s still a puppy. “Dad, Coco went missing this morning, but here’s a brand new chocolate lab – just like her!”
Good luck… and Merry Christmas!
WikiAnswers categories abound! Like department stores in New York City, WikiAnswers is crowded and buzzing with thousands of categories – and these days, I’d like to point out the exceptionally seasonal categories which are showing up like mall workers in elf costumes.
Check out the updated tag cloud for categories, including holiday favorites such as:

So get started asking, answering and editing! There’s work to be done this season.
For years, as I watch the Christmas specials on TV and sing along to the carols on the radio, I’ve pondered and wondered about certain things the holiday season brings. Since today is the culmination of that intense questioning, I have compiled a list of my most burning queries hoping that someone – if not Santa himself – will present me with answers:
Merry holidays, WikiAnswerers!
(I’m not suggesting we’re pigs or anything…)
If you’re anything like me, you’re a last-minute shopper. And, while there may be no such thing as a stupid answer, there are stupid gift ideas…
The art of gift giving is to focus on the person receiving the gift as opposed to… yourself. Keep the age, background and interests of your generosity’s target in the forefront of your mind. Would you give your teenage daughter a fancy pen? Your boss a pair of sneakers?
Since the start of the ‘season of giving’ (or is it ‘season of buying?’), we’ve been receiving Santa-sized sackfuls of questions on WikiAnswers concerning what are appropriate gifts for seniors/toddlers/workmates and everyone else in our lives.
Here are some samples:

The holiday season is upon us. It’s a time for reflecting on all those important things in life like families and friends…making your lists and checking them twice. You know the drill.
But it’s also a time to ponder really meaningful things like those in our latest WikiAnswers featured topics: Gift Giving and Holidays/Traditions. I mean, who HASN’T wondered what that crazy old grinch wanted with Christmas once he stole it!?
Kick off the holiday season by answering Gift Giving or Holiday questions like the following:
