Christmas News – December 9

Tennis ace Andy Roddick might be on his wife’s naughty list this Christmas after he posted an embarrassing video of his wife Brooklyn Decker.

The sports star tweeted a video of Brooklyn singing along to Bing Crosby’s It’s Beginning To Look A Lot Like Christmas.

And when she realised he was secretly filming her she was none too pleased!

Decker can be seen  asking Roddick “Do you hear those notes?”, before shouting for him to stop and breaking out in embarrassed laughter. 

While she’s a bit off key, Decker certainly had nothing to be ashamed of. Her husband on the other hand…


Christmas is a time for families, but of course not everyone gets on with their in-laws and Irish mammies, whom we all love dearly, can certainly be a force to be reckoned with!

Ahead of the holiday season, Women’s Health have revealed the craziest things that their mother-in-laws have ever done.

One woman said that that her mother-in-law co-opted her first holiday dinner: “My mother-in-law completely took over the event! She invited other people without asking – or telling – us first and even assigned each random person a dish to bring.”

Another wife became furious when she learned that her mother was sharing live updates of her baby’s birth on social media.

She wrote: “My mother-in-law live-Facebooked my delivery!”

My mammy wouldn’t do that – would yours?


Mighty Boosh star Noel Fielding has gotten into the Christmas spirit this year – after he announced his festive song Can’t Wait For Christmas has been made available as a free download. 

The track – a collaboration with Kasabian’s Serge Pizzorno under the moniker Loose Tapestries – also features a rap by star of Luther and The Wire Idris Elba.

The video was released last week, with the audio now available on Soundcloud. 


An American town named Santa Claus is being inundated with letters from excited children in the hope they wll reach the man himself.

Every year youngsters write adorable notes addressed to Santa Claus and sometimes they end up in a town in Indiana – the only one to have a post office named after Santa Claus.

However, children needn’t worry that their letters won’t get to Santa as since 1914, the town recruits elves, to sort through the mail in time for Christmas.

Last year, a total of 150 elves showed up to help make children’s Christmas dreams come true.
In a letter received this month, one hopeful child wrote: ‘I don’t know if I’ve been good. ‘Well, if I have I want for my room to be clean and a hover board. Can you get anything for my bunny, Mr Carrot?’
