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!"

Summer Slump

Summer is a time for fun in the sun, hanging out with friends, and living it up, but for some people, that's not the case. Summer is a nightmare for idle minds. Let me explain what I mean by that. For people with mental illness having the extra time to think and relax can be devastating for their mental health. Now, this isn't a problem for everyone but for some people who suffer from mental illness, this is a reality.

NYC Classrooms struggle with marijuana and high students

The Cannabis landscape has changed, and so have what schools experience

The National Institute on Drug Abuse (NIDA) reported that about 35.7% of 12th graders in the U.S. had used marijuana in the past year, and 11.8% reported daily use. As for coming to school under the influence, specific statistics can be hard to come by, but there is concern that the increasing social acceptance of marijuana may lead to higher rates of use among teenagers.
