2. It wouldn’t be a Kardashian Christmas without some drama, some weirdness and some wonderfulness! It was an extravagant Christmas morning at Kris Jenner’s place, as the crew showed off their matching pajamas and new cars on Snapchat. It looked as if everyone — even Chyna and Tyga’s son King — got a stocking except Blac Chyna, and Kylie unleashed a ~sizzling~ short film with bf Tyga as her gift to the world. Meanwhile, on Christmas Eve, Kris’s annual Christmas party looked glam, with even Kim appearing in some Snapchats wearing a lip ring. Merry Kardashian Khristmas! (Photo via Kylie Jenner/Snapchat)

4. Kacey Musgraves got a Christmas proposal, and her ring is FABULOUS. Along with a beauty pic of her new sparkler, Kacey shared the sweetest story of how her beau Ruston Kelly proposed. “I didn’t say yes… I said HELL YESSSS!!” she starts. “Last night, the best man I’ve ever met got down on one knee in my little pink childhood home…in the same room I played with my ponies and barbies and asked me the easiest question I’ve ever been asked. ❤ I finally know what everyone means when they say ‘you just know.'” Congrats to the happy couple!
5. Have mercyyy: Fuller House has officially been renewed for season three! How could they not give us more eps after the way season two ended?! (No spoilers!) The show announced the new season on their social media with an adorable video of the gang passing around a prettily wrapped present to each other. No official date has been given, but it will be in 2017.
6. Quote of the day: “Carrie is in stable condition. If there is a change, we will share it.” Carrie Fisher’s mom Debbie Reynolds shares a bit of “no new is good news” news with people about her daughter, because we really all needed it.
