#TopTrenders: It's National Ugly Christmas Sweater Day

Friday, December 15 is National Ugly Christmas Sweater Day. Time to get into the Christmas spirit by showing off those festive, ugly sweaters.  The day started in 2011 and has gained in popularity across the globe around the holiday season. Those celebrating are encouraged to share their ugly sweaters on social media using #christmsweaterday.

FOX is back for another go around with a unique take on a  classic. The network has lined up a star-studded cast for Sunday night's live production of the holiday classic "A Christmas Story Live". The three hour musical production is based on the 1983 film and the Tony nominated broadway show.  It follows a grown up Ralphie Parker, who looks back on his favorite  childhood Christmas.   

Porch pirates beware! One homeowner is fighting back against thieves this holiday season. He's leaving fake packages called "The Blank Box" on his doorstep. The idea came about after watching surveillance footage of thieves taking packages off his front porch. The man said he wanted a way to scare the thieves safely. When "The Blank Box" is picked up , a loud pop goes off like a firework. 

Oprah Winfrey is adding yet another accolade to her list. The media mogul will receive the Cecil B. DeMille award at next month's Golden Globes ceremony. The Hollywood Foreign Press Association says Winfrey is being honored as a global media leader, philanthropist, producer and actress.
The group says Winfrey is one of the most respected and admired figures today, as well as a role model for women and young girls. The Golden Globes says the Cecil B. DeMille award is given annually to those who, quote, "made an incredible impact on the world of entertainment".
