The world will be receiving its best and greatest holiday present early this year — Saturday Night Live just announced that it's tapped Tina Fey and Amy Poehler to host the holiday episode.

While this is absolutely joyous news, let's all promise to do one very important thing: Keep expectations as low as possible. Not because Tina and Amy won't absolutely shut it down the way they have during their respective hosting duties in the past, but because when it comes to enjoying heavily hyped episodes of SNL (ahem), often the best strategy is keeping things veeeery chill beforehand.

Tina and Amy? Psh, it's whatever. Who's Bruce Springsteen anyway? Ryan Gosling and Chris Hemsworth are both hideous goblins. Who wants to look at them for an hour and a half? December's going to suck.
