You can't turn on a TV right now without seeing one of these two Christmasy characters on your screen. So imagine our surprise when Santa and The Grinch stopped by the Allrecipes studios, between all their holiday appearances, and shared a few cookie decorating tips.

The Grinch, it turns out, may have a heart two sizes too small — but hands that certainly aren't diminutive. Despite his best efforts, that were problematic for perfecting his green glaze motif. But Santa has a few wonderful tips to impart — and of course, lots of holly jolly happiness.
