Believe it or not, Will Smith has been on social media for just a touch over a year. He's made sure to do it big, though. In his first year on Instagram with the rest of us, he's managed to go viral a few times, dance on top of some monuments, hit us with several amazing duck face selfies, bungee jump from a helicopter, help encourage and highlight inspirational young people from all over the world, and give us all some serious behind-the-scenes access to his family life.

He was really new last year so, let's be honest, his holiday game was kind of weak. Funny, but weak.

See, Christmas is Jada Pinkett Smith's jam. It's been pretty well known through most of her career that homegirl loves Christmas.

Will, on the other hand...well, he tries, but it's hard to compete with the holiday cheer of someone who might be an actual elf. This year he decided he'd had enough with everyone leaving Jada to handle the holly jolly by herself. The Smith clan was gonna feel this holiday season whether they liked it or not! And of course he made sure to catch as much of it as he could for the 'Gram. Things started when Jada went ham on the lights in the living room and it snowballed from there. Will decided there was no way the family could stand in that living room with all those lights and not join in. So he bugged everyone until they got decked out appropriately. Even his eldest son, Tre, tried showing up late thinking that he'd be safe...but nope!

Parents out there will be quite familiar with Jaden's total disinterest.

Not to worry, though. Jaden perked up and joined the fun when his dad decided to make everyone sing Christmas songs. He proposed singing "Baby, It's Cold Outside" and even went so far as to make cue cards (extra is as extra does, you guys) but Willow refused. She said the song sounded like a bad night to her. Will asked why, and Jaden grabbed a camera. You can hear Jaden chuckle in the background and go "let me film this conversation." He absolutely knew what was about to go down.

Dad and daughter laughed and made points back and forth but Willow emerged victorious.

Jaden held the camera to Will's face and said, "That's round one." Will jokingly asked, "How'd I do?"


Having failed at the singalong, he moved on to making fun of Jada, her height, and her love of the movie Elf. He made a movie poster inserting her where Will Ferrell would normally be. Honestly, it's pretty well-done and I'd be down to watch a version of Elf where Jada Pinkett Smith kicks people in the face a lot and drops some sassy-but-hilarious one liners. If anyone can turn this into a reality it's the Smith family.

Jada looks really excited about kicking stuff.


Eventually they got it together enough for a family portrait, and this is possibly one of the greatest celebrity couple holiday photos we have ever laid eyes on.


People loved the "Christmas with the Smiths" updates.

So do we! We can't wait to see what shenanigans they get into next year...and if Jada manages to snag a role in a karate-themed Christmas movie.

There are few things more satisfying than a crisp $20 bill. Well, maybe a crisp $100 bill.

But twenty big ones can get you pretty far nonetheless.

Whether it's tucked firmly in a birthday card, passing from hand to hand after a knee-jerk sports bet, or going toward a useful tool, the old twenty dollar bill has been used for countless purposes.

I realize that school safety has been severely compromised and has been under dire scrutiny over the past decade and of course, it should be. And when I was a student, my safety was one of my greatest priorities but, some implemented rules under the guise of "safety" were and are... just plain ludicrous. Like who thinks up some of these ideas?

Redditor u/Animeking1108 wanted to discuss how the education system has ideas that sometimes are just more a pain in the butt than a daily enhancement... What was the dumbest rule your school enforced?

One of the golden rules of life? Doctors are merely human. They don't know everything and they make mistakes. That is why you always want to get another opinion. Things are constantly missed. That doesn't mean docs don't know what they're doing, they just aren't infallible. So make sure to ask questions, lots of them.

Redditor u/Gorgon_the_Dragon wanted to hear from doctors about why it is imperative we always get second and maybe third opinions by asking... Doctors of Reddit, what was the worse thing you've seen for a patient that another Doctor overlooked?

When we think about learning history, our first thought is usually sitting in our high school history class (or AP World History class if you're a nerd like me) being bored out of our minds. Unless again, you're a huge freaking nerd like me. But I think we all have the memory of the moment where we realized learning about history was kinda cool. And they usually start from one weird fact.

Here are a few examples of turning points in learning about history, straight from the keyboards of the people at AskReddit.
