Happy holidays, from all of us at Reddit!

Happy Holidays!

It's Christmas day, and no matter what you celebrate, we'd like to wish everyone around the world a safe and happy holiday season. Special shout out to the folks who have to spend the holidays working, instead of spending time with loved ones! Thank you for keeping the world in check while we are busy unwrapping presents and eating mashed potatoes. For those of you who have some spare time, spend it with some Reddit! Here's some fun reading to peruse when you need some me-time, or to get away from the in-laws, or just to keep you entertained today:
Happy Holidays

Wishing you all the best this holiday season!
