Welcome to Day Five of our 12 Days of Celebrities Celebrating amicable holiday smackdown! Though there's still a few weeks before Hannukah, Christmas, and New Year's Eve are over, the celebrities —  along with their pets, stalkers, and Instagram followers — want you to know that they're already making the most of the occasion.

But only one celebrity can be having the Most Fun Ever (today). So far, winners have included Everyone on Kelly Clarkson's Christmas card list and the Kardashians' matching holiday-themed waist trainers, but here are your runners up and winner for Tuesday, December 15th:

Runner Up #2: This Pie Blake Lively Bought for Taylor Swift

There is absolutely zero percent chance that actress Blake Lively actually made this pie for Taylor Swift's birthday-slash-Thanksgiving (unless Blake Lively has a secret past as an expert in creating cats made of fondant, which, who knows, maybe?), but it's the thought that counts. Taylor's caption: "Blake wins at birthday pies. I honestly can't stop laughing rn."


The music of Taylor Swift's laughter: 1,000

Pie: 100

Pie with cats on it: 200

Blondness and friendship: 500

Final score: 1,800

Runner Up #1: Everyone Who Witnessed Christina Aguilera Wasted

According to a Page Six report this morning, Christina Aguilera is fun at parties. At Seth Macfarlane's Christmas party in Beverly Hills, she refused to take the stage and sing a Frank Sinatra duet with him (despite having done so two weeks prior at Lincoln Center). If it wasn't already clear why, a source says, "The reason she didn't get up is because she was wasted." She then proceeded to "nearly fall into a Christmas tree" after being escorted out by her fiancé and a friend. One question: Is she available to come to my holiday party?


Extreme drunkenness: 1,000

Almost falling into a Christmas tree: 2,000

Frank Sinatra: 500

Final score: 3,500

Winner: Beyoncé's Delightfully Kooky Holiday Party Outfit

Oh hey, what were you planning on wearing to your office holiday party? Probably like a black cocktail dress or something? Or maybe you're going  ~edgy~ and opting for a low-cut jumpsuit? Not Beyoncé. At a holiday party she and Jay-Z hosted at their New York City office, she left wearing a striped mock turtleneck dress, combat boots, massive hoop earrings, novelty sunglasses, an absolutely giant sweater-slash-blanket adorned with tinsel and literal ornaments. And a Santa hat.


Novelty accessories: 5,000

The world's kitschiest sweater: 4,000

Multiple Santa hats: 500

Beyoncé: 10,000

Final score: 19,500

The Prize

In the tradition of the 12 Days of Christmas, Beyoncé's outfit will receive "Five free classes on 'How to Be Beyoncé'"

Congratulations to all, and stay tuned for tomorrow's showdown!
