Take A Moment This December to Appreciate Heat Miser & Snow Miser

The strangest and most iconic Christmastime duo.

Take A Moment This December to Appreciate Heat Miser & Snow Miser

There are lots of articles on the World Wide Web this December listing out holiday classics like "Elf," "Miracle on 34th Street," & "Eloise at Christmastime." These articles make you wish you had infinite free time so that you could lounge in your cozy home and watch Christmas movies all month long. But they do not improve one's acute appreciation of any specific elements in the films. Let me bring to your attention one of the absolute wildest duos in holiday movie history: Snow Miser and Heat Miser, straight outta "The Year Without a Santa Claus." They are everything.

They are best frenemies for eternal life.

If you have a rival or a friend, that's cool, but you must feel really lame by comparison when you watch of this pair of antiheroes. Because there's no way that you and your rival have squared up atop literal clouds and prepared for epic battle. But Heat Miser and Snow Miser have. And I happen to seriously doubt that you and your friend have ever gotten Santa's attention. Well, Heat Miser and Snow Miser have demanded it.

They live in exquisite ***aesthetic*** palaces.

Please appreciate the stop-motion splendor.

They have incredible powers.

MAGIC. They are lords of the elements.

They have henchmen modeled after their likenesses.

No one can explain this, and no one needs to explain it, either. I'm fine without an explanation as long as I can meditate upon its weirdness, and appreciate it.

They have access to the best technology.

Skype in the 1970s? Ladies and gentlemen, "Star Trek" isn't the only program that predicted future technological advances.

Weaker beings crawl to their doorstep, begging for aid.

"Please help us, overlords of elemental powers!" That's probably something that Heat Miser and Snow Miser get a lot.

They have the least relevance to Christmas, but their iconic supremacy surpasses anything else in this film.

There is a spin-off special called "A Miser Brothers' Christmas" that aired in 2008. The spin-off isn't about Santa. It isn't about the dumb kid and his town where it doesn't usually snow (I really had to struggle to remember anything about that kid to include it in this article). It's about Heat Miser and Snow Miser, because they are at least seventy times more iconic than anything else that came out of "The Year Without A Santa Claus!"

Slavery Was NOT Abolished

Jeevti from Pakistan would like to tell you so herself.


Unfortunately, at this time of year, we tend to overlook how incredibly blessed we are. We live in a free world, where we should not have to fear being penalized for our gender, sexual orientation, beliefs, or values. This is a fact we take for granted; in many other countries, simply being born female makes you an immediate target.

My Ethnicity

Hispanic is not a race... it’s an ethnicity. The term Hispanic describes a group of people whose common thread is language and/or culture. I’m a Hispanic woman born in Argentina to Korean parents. I self-identify as Hispanic/Latina and my personal experiences can’t be summarized by the color of my skin or the languages on my tongue. That is because every single person in the universe has a unique experience. Whether someone labels me as Korean or Argentine or American, that will never change my experiences as a Spanish speaker, immigrant, child of divorced parents, Californian, college graduate (Go Bears!), omnivore, writer, or any other label I choose for myself.

Your Work Week As Told By Michael Scott And Stanley Hudson

"The Office" is basically the best American TV show created in the past 15 years (you can fight me on this). And through all its hilarity and cringe-worthy "that would never happen in real life" moments, the show really does have a lot of relatable themes, as can be seen by the little compilation I put together of Michael Scott and Stanley Hudson.

October Is Overrated, Let's Just Accept This Fact

I have never liked the month of October. I like the fall weather and the beginning of wearing sweaters in the crisp fall air, but I never associated this with the month of October.
