Schmaltz Season

It's Christmas and of course, it's the season for sugary, schmaltzy stories, clips and pictures and why not? Goodness knows we have to contend with enough of the other stuff during the rest of the year. No one does cheesy schmaltz better than the Americans and with the odd exception, its to there we look for this big hit in one fix of Christmas Clips from Crumble, starting with the incredible one above in which country singer Martina MacBride goes back in time to sing with Elvis. So, grab a tissue or two, sit back and enjoy.

When faced with a tough decision, will these kids pick a Christmas gift for themselves or give it up for a gift for their family?,

Sometimes the best gifts are not received, but given!

Signing Santa

A 5-year-old became an Internet sensation overnight for doing what she says is "easy for her." Claire Koch used sign language during her Christmas pageant to share what she was singing with her deaf parents.

Members of SAE, a fraternity at UCLA, are helping to make the hospital stay for a 12-year-old girl battling cancer a little brighter.
