It’s the most wonderful time of the year: the day when Drew Magary drops his annual Hater’s Guide to the Williams-Sonoma holiday catalog! The 2017 edition does not disappoint, sending up such items as the Nordicware Nutcracker Cakelet Pan and a $400 fondue set. Just don’t talk shit about the Salted Peppermint Bark, because that is a goddamn national treasure. [Kate Bernot]
