Christmas cards and family Christmas photos are a long-standing tradition, where we share well wishes with our loved ones alongside very festive photos of our faces.

Seth Meyers noticed something VERY off about his family's Christmas card this year.

The SNL alum and talk show host had a huge laugh at his own expense.


The card read "Happy Holidays! Love Ellen, Tom & Peanut."

None of those people are people in Seth Meyers' family.

When he shared the card on Instagram, Meyers wrote:

"Happy Holidays to Tom, Ellen and Peanut whose names were accidentally printed on the bottom of the Meyers family card."
"I'll admit that if it was just Tom and Ellen it would have been rage inducing but the inclusion of Peanut makes it hilarious."
"Is Peanut a pet? Probably. But maybe they are a small child or a live-in grandparent."
"The whole thing is a reminder that the true meaning of Christmas is things will go wrong and the best you can do is roll with it (we cut off the bottoms!). Also, if Tom and Ellen received the bottoms of OUR card just know that Frisbee is my wife's cousin and he is a DJ."

Most people were quick to speculate on the identity of Peanut:

The guesses ranged from adorable corgi...

Some people have experienced similar Christmas card trauma:

No!

Not Peanut!

Meyers has had a pretty solid 2019, receiving four Emmy nominations, including "Original Music & Lyrics" for Documentary Now! and "Best Writing-Variety Series" for both Late Night with Seth Meyers and Documentary Now!

May Seth, the actual Meyers' family, Ellen, Tom and Peanut all have a merry and a bright holiday season.

Conspiracy theories are beliefs that there are covert powers that be changing the course of history for their own benefits. It's how we see the rise of QAnon conspiracies and people storming the capital.

Why do people fall for them? Well some research has looked into the reasons for that.

The Association for Psychological Science published a paper that reviewed some of the research:

"This research suggests that people may be drawn to conspiracy theories when—compared with nonconspiracy explanations—they promise to satisfy important social psychological motives that can be characterized as epistemic (e.g., the desire for understanding, accuracy, and subjective certainty), existential (e.g., the desire for control and security), and social (e.g., the desire to maintain a positive image of the self or group)."

Whatever the motivations may be, we wanted to know which convoluted stories became apart of peoples consciousness enough for them to believe it.

I hate ghosts, even if it's Casper. My life is already stressful enough. I don't need to creeped out by spirits from the beyond. Shouldn't they be resting and basking in the glow of the great beyond instead of menacing the rest of us?

The paranormal seems to be consistently in unrest, which sounds like death isn't any more fun or tranquil than life. So much for something to look forward to.

Some ghosts just like to scare it up. It's not always like "Ghosthunters" the show.

Redditor u/Murky-Increase4705 wanted to hear about all the times we've faced some hauntings that left us shook, by asking:

Reddit, what are your creepy encounters with something that you are convinced was paranormal?

A lot of talk going on about women's bodies, isn't there?

Not necessarily with women front and center as part of the conversation, unfortunately.
