Remember when Kerry Washington gifted her friends with $400 Dyson vacuum cleaners for Christmas? Lol. It was the thought that counted.

Remember when Walmart sold out KFC's wildly popular chicken-scented fire logs?
Remember when Tyler Perry paid off $434,000 worth of Walmart lay-a-aways one Christmas? They say Walmart no longer offers layaways (but not because of Tyler Perry).
What about that time when a Houston oil company owner gifted his employees $100,000 cash each for Christmas.

Dwyane Wade and Gabrielle Union's celebrity Christmas photo is my favorite! The Wades reenacted one of the Jackson 5's photo shoots right down to the 1970s style clothes and afro wigs! In the top photo L-R is Marlon Jackson, Michael Jackson, Jackie Jackson, Tito Jackson and Jermaine (who is cut out of the photo). In the bottom photo: Gabrielle Union is dressed as Tito; Dwyane Wade is Jackie; Dwyane's son Zaire is Michael Jackson; Dwyane's other son Zion is Marlon, and D. Wade's nephew is Jermaine Jackson.

Massage parlor singer Beyonce was spotted leaving her Ultimate Office Christmas Party dressed as a Christmas tree on Monday. Her "Christmas tree" sweater was replete with tinsel, lights, ornaments and Christmas stockings.
Bey held her sweater in front of her in an attempt to hide her pseudo pregnancy. Beyonce is completely obsessed with making you believe she's pregnant. The only way I will believe Beyonce is pregnant is if she pops out a live human being in front of me.

Pop singer Beyonce Instagram'd this image of her daughter, Blue Ivy, admiring their Christmas tree. Blue Ivy's silhouette is framed by the massive tree which is festooned with oversized ornaments included elephants, the symbol of the Republican party. Many families wait until after Thanksgiving to put up their Christmas holiday decorations, but apparently not the Knowles-Carters.
