Drivers who travel past the intersection of 4th Street and 21st Avenue East in Duluth during the winter months have grown accustomed to seeing snow sculptures in the yard of Harry Welty, who lives right on the corner of the two intersecting streets. In the 25 years Welty has been carving snow statues in his yard, none have been quite as meaningful as the one currently on display.

15 Gingerbread Houses That Are Way Better Than Ours

There's something about the holidays that puts a lot of us here at TheFW into extra crafty moods. Maybe it's all those awesome Etsy decorations we so wish we could copy or just the fact we're feeling particularly festive this time of year. Either way, trying to get all creatively crafty is just plain old fun.

The Best and Worst of the 12-12-12 Hurricane Sandy Benefit

Yesterday's 12-12-12 benefit concert for Hurricane Sandy relief raised over $30 million dollars, but it wasn't all good. We're still cringing for Bobby Moynihan's awkward appearance as his 'SNL' character "Drunk Uncle," for example.

17 Houses Decked Out for Christmas

No matter what the holiday, we always love getting extra festive. It's not like we need an excuse to wear awful Christmas sweaters or take part in a harmless snowman prank, but doing that stuff during the season makes us look a little less crazy. The season also provides the perfect excuse to go way overboard in the decorating department.

11 Adorable Elf Babies From Instagram

Santa's elves are the greatest. For starters, they work super hard in his workshop all year round making our Christmas presents and baking delicious treats so Santa maintains that cookie belly. However, we do think these charming people are highly underrated. They're arguably the most charming part of Christmas, after all! That's why we think it's important to pay homage to the little guys and girls through one of our favorite combos of all-time: babies and costumes.

12 Santas Who Might Be Drunk

Even though Santa has an awesome job, it can be super stressful at times. Sure he's a jolly ol' guy who gives out presents for a living, but when Christmas Eve rolls around, things can get really tricky. If you think about it, the guy has to pull off delivering like, millions and millions of presents to people all around the world, so of course Santa needs to relax a bit post-Christmas. You know-- hop in the jaccuzi, get a massage or down a couple dozen chocolate chip cookies while the elves give him a manicure.

However, there are times Santa goes a little overboard with this whole "relaxing" thing, and he knocks back a few too many drinks (and we're not talking about milk). Basically, the guy gets extra, extra tipsy. He ends up passing out on sidewalks, subways and even right next to the Christmas tree. Who know Saint Nick was such a party animal?

17 Dogs Dressed Like Santa

Santa Claus rules. Unless his beard gets stuck mid-mall stunt, then his cool status gets a little iffy. But otherwise, good ol' St. Nick is really awesome. Why? For starters, he has reindeer as pets, gives out presents for a living and gets thousands of free homemade cookies on Christmas Eve. Basically, the guy's livin' the life. It's no wonder he's survived to be like, hundreds of years old!

15 Kids Who’d Do Anything To Get Off Santa’s Lap

One of the best parts about the holiday season is when Santa comes to town for a visit. Every single year, he makes his rounds to American shopping malls so little kids (and adults-- we’re guilty) can have an up-close-and-personal gift-begging session with the guy. The whole thing is pretty impressive if you think abo

10 Cats Dressed Like Reindeer

Not that we're counting or anything, but Christmas is only 27 days and a few hours away, which means it's time to get into the spirit ASAP. Now, this doesn't mean going 'Gangnam Style' crazy with house lights. You also don't have to go buying the 12 days of Christmas to prep for the holidays either, although that would be super awesome. It can require very little to no effort to feel all tingly with Christmas excitement, like making obnoxiously long gift lists or dressing up our cats like reindeer. Come on, you know we can't get through the holidays without embarrassing our pets.
