Every year for the past ten years, The Killers have released a new and original Christmas song for which they donate all of the proceeds to the charity Project Red. They choose to support the Global Fund, which aims to help fight and treat HIV, AIDS, tuberculosis and malaria. Over the last decade, their generosity has helped raise more than $850,000 for these causes.

Each year the band releases a new Christmas themed song, they also release a music video to accompany it. This year The Killers released their newest single titled "Dirt Sledding". The song completes the unofficial Santa Trilogy which began with 2007's "Don't Shoot Me Santa" and 2012's "I Feel It in My Bones".

So in order to celebrate the band’s tremendous efforts for the last ten years, and of course the work put in by these wonderful charities for important global causes, let’s take a look at some past Christmases:


2006 - A Great Big Sled ft. Toni Halliday



2007 - Don't Shoot Me Santa


2008 - Joseph, Better You Than Me



2009 - ¡Happy Birthday Guadalupe!



2010 - Boots



2011 - The Cowboys' Christmas Ball



2012 - I Felt It in My Bones ft. Ryan Pardey



2013 - Christmas in L.A ft. Dawes



2014 - Joel, the Lump of Coal ft. Jimmy Kimmel


2015 - Dirt Sledding ft. Ryan Pardey, Richard Dreyfuss


Whether you enjoy listening to The Killers or not (you really should though), why not consider buying their new Christmas single this year. Not only will you be supporting a great cause, but you'll also be getting an amazing Christmas song to play during the holidays!

For as long as I can remember, I have been listening to The Beatles. Every year, my mom would appropriately blast “Birthday” on anyone’s birthday. I knew all of the words to “Back In The U.S.S.R” by the time I was 5 (Even though I had no idea what or where the U.S.S.R was). I grew up with John, Paul, George, and Ringo instead Justin, JC, Joey, Chris and Lance (I had to google N*SYNC to remember their names). The highlight of my short life was Paul McCartney in concert twice. I’m not someone to “fangirl” but those days I fangirled hard. The music of The Beatles has gotten me through everything. Their songs have brought me more joy, peace, and comfort. I can listen to them in any situation and find what I need. Here are the best lyrics from The Beatles for every and any occasion.

Small towns certainly have their pros and cons. Many people who grow up in small towns find themselves counting the days until they get to escape their roots and plant new ones in bigger, "better" places. And that's fine. I'd be lying if I said I hadn't thought those same thoughts before too. We all have, but they say it's important to remember where you came from. When I think about where I come from, I can't help having an overwhelming feeling of gratitude for my roots. Being from a small town has taught me so many important lessons that I will carry with me for the rest of my life.

I can't say "thank you" enough to express how grateful I am for you coming into my life. You have made such a huge impact on my life. I would not be the person I am today without you and I know that you will keep inspiring me to become an even better version of myself.

Course registration at college can be a big hassle and is almost never talked about. Classes you want to take fill up before you get a chance to register. You might change your mind about a class you want to take and must struggle to find another class to fit in the same time period. You also have to make sure no classes clash by time. Like I said, it's a big hassle.

This semester, I was waitlisted for two classes. Most people in this situation, especially first years, freak out because they don't know what to do. Here is what you should do when this happens.
