The best sleds for kids of winter 2021 include snow tubes, toboggans, saucers and even Funboy inflatable snowmobiles. Here's where to buy sleds.
My feet are cold for a good chunk of the year, but come October, I’m essentially clomping around my frigid New York City apartment on two small frozen logs. Socks have been my go-to for years, but that’s not ideal: they’re not quite warm enough, they don’t provide any stability on wood floors, and you can’t run downstairs to pick up the mail or get to work in the kitchen without some discomfort (maybe it’s just me, but stepping on a little bit of water if you happen to drip while draining pasta or rinsing vegetables is an unsettling experience).
Much has been made of the demise of print journalism. People get their news these days on their computers or phones. Sadly, I’m one of them. If you’d told me a dozen years ago, or even half that number, that uncorking the print version of the New York Times wouldn’t one day be as integral a part of my morning as freshly squeezed orange juice, I’d have said you were nuts.
When you wish upon a snowglobe, you may be thinking of getting happily trapped in a charming small town in Maine, just like in one of your favorite Hallmark Christmas movies.

If the snow begins to fall, you know you are in the right spot for a delightful made for television, holiday movie.

I’ve never been one for artificial Christmas trees. I grew up in a home where every year we cut down our own tree from the woods on my grandparents’ farm in northeast Ohio. The smell of live pine trees and the feel of wayward pine needles lodged in the living room carpet (or a foot) all say “Christmas” to me.
Activists and researchers are calling on 82 retailers to commit to sourcing cotton outside of China to take a stand against accusations of forced Uyghur labor
China has been accused of committing genocide and crimes against humanity in Xinjiang. Activists are pushing companies to "fully extricate their supply chains from the Uyghur Region," meaning Xinjiang. Researchers say that cotton from that region of China is still ending up in stores. Activists are calling on 82 major...
