With finals fast approaching, this time of year can be especially hard on students. The end of Thanksgiving Break means (for most of us) that there are only two weeks left in the semester. We are so close to the end -- we can give up just yet -- but we can take a short break and look at pictures of puppies and kittens in Christmas settings.

1. This handsome guy, who might actually be Santa.

2. Or this guy, who is ready to face the snow with his hat and scarf.

3. This guy, who loves his snazzy bow tie.

4. And this sweet baby, who is staying warm with a classic Christmas sweater.

5. This pup, who could be the cover of this year's Christmas GQ cover.


6. Or this little kitten, who is the best ornament in the box.


7. This pooch who got himself tangled in the christmas lights.

8. I would be so happy if I got this present.


9. These babies, who are #twinning it this Christmas.

10. This kitten, who just wants to take a nap.


11. And of course, these two, who prove that the bonds of friendship are stronger than the barriers between species.
