Of course there are a couple of newsy things:
Clinton taking over the press conference when Obama left for a Christmas party. No one thinks that was a great idea on the president's part. Lots of jokes about this. "Words you'd never Clinton say,"Ive kept my wife waiting long enough." And so on.

Some news outlets are still talking about Prince Charles and Camilla's car being paint balled.
The New York Times thinks some of us might be interested in Siberian elections.
But mostly most of us are probably thinking about what we still have to do for Christmas. We don't even have our tree yet. We're planning to go today, but it's been raining all morning.
