17 Things The MTV Shows Blog Is Thankful For This Holiday Season

Yeah, your mother's apple pie is fine, but here's what we're most thankful for in 2013...

Thankful

1. Cupid, for finally shooting his arrow through the hearts of our beloved "Hills" girls, Lauren Conrad, Whitney Port and Holly Montag...and making sure they got some shiny bling out of the deal. Here's to surprise wedding proposals and never having to suffer through another dating disaster.

2. Miley Cyrus, for no particular reason...

3. Hurricane Nia, for raining hell all over Portland and finding a new, creative use for lamps.

4. The Darach, for raining hell (and glass shards!) all over Beacon Hills.

Unicorn

5. The MTV holiday party included the slaughter of a life-sized unicorn, the innards of which turned out to be layered rainbow cake bound together with (magic) almond marzipan. The exit is to the rear of the auditorium, "Top Chef: Just Desserts."

6. Nicole Byer's many sex facts.

7. Nicole Byer's many wigs.

8. Nicole Byer, and the rest of the "Girl Code" ladies for not keeping their lady wisdom to themselves.

9. Danity Kane's back! WE'RE DIVAS BUT WE RIDE LIKE BIG BOYS DO, etc..

10. Snooki, for being the best mom and "pocket rocket" she can be.

11. That we learned how to make GIFs. Now you can watch every gruesome "Teen Wolf" moment over and over until your eyes bleed!

12. Heidi Montag's newly downsized lifestyle...and breasts. Now there's the girl we used to know!

13. In August, we rode the elevator with Susan Sarandon, who was too preoccupied with production talk to notice our stained jorts! Onward...

14. Even that GPA-sinking C+ in pre-calc was nothing compared to the mess Jenna Hamilton's in.

15. AND NIKKI DELOACH GETS A BABY! AND KAILYN LOWRY GETS A BABY! AND KRISTIN CAVALLARI GETS A BABY! AND CHRISTINA SINCLAIR GETS A BABY! AND LEAH CALVERT GETS A BABY! AND MACKENZIE DOUTHIT GETS A BABY! MTV babies, everywhere.

16. Justin's "Catfish" slow clap. It's the only slow-clap GIF you'll ever need.
