In Key West, when it comes to Christmas, we don’t just decorate a tree.  We decorate everyyyythang.  Tons of Key Westers brought unwrapped toys or a cash donation to benefit The Wesley House and provide holiday gifts to families in need.  They rode their decked out bikes on down to “Sparkle Street” a.k.a Applerouth Lane where the merriment continued into the wee morning.

2.  The Dude Who Punched a Kangaroo:

This video has taken the internet by storm.  But seriously, what dog owner wouldn’t square up to a Kanga to save their pooch!

3.  The Couple That Murdered the Dance Floor

Every year this cute as can be couple shows up to a local mall and brings down the house; this year to the tune of Uptown Funk!  Just look at the smiles on their faces!  Can you say #relationshipgoals?!

4.  The Fujifilm Instax Mini Camera

I actually received this gem as a Christmas gift last year from a friend of mine and had it tucked away from moving until we broke it out last night for our company holiday party.  Such a fun addition to the night, the pictures are small, instant, and look super cute hanging from clothespins.
