  • A long time ago and in a galaxy far, far away, there's no holiday season. In fact, the only holiday viewers have seen in the Star Wars galaxy has been the Wookiee Celebration of Life Day. Yet seeing as the Skywalker family and the Millennium Falcon crew have saved the galaxy several times, they have certainly earned a gift during our festive season. Since they're far too busy with heroic adventures to deal with the mundane process of shopping for gifts, here are some suggestions to make this group of Rebel Alliance heroes happy for the holidays.

  • Pop culture is full of slow-burn, will-they-or-won't-they couples. Luke and Lorelai. Ross and Rachel. Mary and Matthew. Ron and Hermione. Couples whose gradual, winding paths to each other inevitably twist their fandom's stomachs into bittersweet knots while the characters themselves burn with unresolved tension. These are the ships that may take years to sail, but when they do, it's a glorious sight to behold.

    There's perhaps no better example of this in modern pop culture than the sweet, slow romance between paper salesman Jim Halpert and receptionist Pam Beesly on the TV series The Office. Their quiet flirtation eventually bloomed into a solid and lasting relationship that provided much of the heart of the show throughout its nine-season run.

  • Hot cocoa may not be able to heal the world or fix its problems, but it is delicious enough to be momentarily comforting. (Pro hot chocolate tip: try dark chocolate hot cocoa with a churro for stirring—the sugar from the churro sweetens it just enough and is even more tasty soaked with chocolate.)

    We're offering hot cocoa to these fictional characters who deserve a bit (or a ton) of cocoa comfort.

  • For many, Halloween means loads of candy, crazy costumes, and scary monsters. But monsters have feelings too! It may be hard to believe, but underneath the claws, fangs, and scales beats the heart of a romantic. That's why we're pairing up literature's scariest monsters in hope that they'll make a love connection.

  • On Halloween, we get excited for—what else?—all the horror stories. In order to save everyone time, we imagined two-sentence short stories written by our favorite fictional characters. But be warned, some of these are downright terrifying...for these characters' standards.

  • When it comes to reading, we tend to remember the brave and courageous. But what about the cautious and apprehensive? These fearful individuals are often overlooked by their heroic couterparts. For this spooky holiday season, let's celebrate the scaredy cats in literature!
