Plus: Soviet Space Suits, a New Year's Adele Parody, and a Home-Fridge Keggerator!

Whether you were a naughty Elf on the Shelf or a model student at the University of Santa Claus, we hope you’ve been enjoying the last days of 2015—but it’s not over yet.

In fact, two of my favorite stories of redditors coming together this past year happened just this week.

The College Football community raised over $6,000 for the Twin Cities Toys For Tots. Ten redditors from the community—led by their brave moderator, user Honestly_—took 14 carts’ worth of toys to the warehouse. I’ve never seen so many giant teddy bears in one place.

Then, Governor Arnold Schwarzenegger teamed up with Reddit user Courser to share an inspirational Christmas challenge with the Reddit community. Read the full story in their touching op-ed for Upvoted.

Of course, the good deeds don’t stop in December. Let’s make 2016 even better—but first, here’s the best of Reddit from the last full week of the year.
