Racked is no longer publishing. Thank you to everyone who read our work over the years. The archives will remain available here; for new stories, head over to, where our staff is covering consumer culture for The Goods by Vox. You can also see what we’re up to by signing up here.

It's officially the holiday season, and the holiday season is about one thing: Using arbitrary mathematical equations to determine which celebrity is having the Most Fun Holiday Ever!!!!

So, for the next 12 business days, we'll be deciding who is having the most elaborate and/or most celebrity-replete winter festivus of them all. But first, some rules:

Who's Eligible


Celebrity-adjacent humans (friends, publicists, hair stylists, celebrity fecalists, etc.)

Celebrity-adjacent animals (Meredith Swift, the kangaroo Taylor Swift cheated on her with)

Celebrity-adjacent objects (Kylie Jenner's Dolce K Lip Kit, the cigarettes Mary Kate Olsen handed out at her wedding)

Pretty much everyone else, too.

How to Win

It's simple: Have the best time ever. Points will be awarded for delicious-looking cookies, sing-a-longs, cute velvet dresses, excellent decorating skills, and sequins. Also, particularly snowy vacations, humble-brags about how many candles you've bought in preparation for winter, really excellent looking matzo ball soup, et cetera, et cetera.

The Prizes

In accordance with the song, "The 12 Days of Christmas," each winner will be awarded a certain number of prizes* determined by that particular day. On Day One, the winner will be awarded one of a certain prize; on Day Two, they'll get two of a certain prize, and so on.

And that's it! Stay tuned for our Day One winner later today.
