Here is a just an adorable story just in time for the holiday season.
Christian Bucks, a second grade boy in York, Pennsylvania, got his elementary school to approve a simple way to have kids feel less lonely on the playground.
Christian saw an idea for something called a “Buddy Bench” in a brochure for a German school and asked his principal at Roundtown Elementary School to put one on the playground as a “designated seating area where students feeling lonely or upset can seek camaraderie.”

Office holiday parties are one of the rare times when co-workers let their guard down and you can see how weird people really are.
Here’s a rundown of seven crazy things that seem to happen at every office holiday party...
Do any of these happen at your office's holiday party?
If a 911 call could ever be considered cute, this one sure is. A 5 year old girl calls 911 when she realizes that her father has chest pain and out of breath.
Take a listen to Savannah's call that was being replayed on a TV show...
We found this video yesterday after the show and just couldn't stop watching it. A couple of college students wanted to find out - on their own campus - what would happen if complete strangers witnessed bullying.
You might be very surprised by what happened...
What would you do - step in or speak up?
Please share this blog post with your kids, co-workers, friends and family members. We feel it is important for people to know if they witness someone in a bullying situatuon, they need to step up and make a difference by trying to stop it!
Now we know the reason behind Keith Urban's new hairdo. Keith's wanted to chop his locks for a while, and thought now was a good time before his schedule gets tight with American Idol.
He was visiting his wife Nicole Kidman on the set of a movie and let her hairdresser on site do the job. Keith says Nic was on board with the change. She told him, "It's just hair, you know. If you don't like it, it will grow back. It's no big drama."
Eric Church had a surprise visitor to the studio while he was recording his new album,The Outsiders.
We caught up with Eric and famed producer Jay Joyce at a listening party on Wednesday in Eric’s studio, in an old church in East Nashville. Apparently, Jay has a habit of leaving the door open, and while they were working on the disc, a homeless man walked in, claimed he was Jesus and said, “I’ll be here on Sunday!” They got it on tape, and it’ll be on the album.
Eric isn’t done fooling around with Taylor Swift, either. After pulling down that trailer for The Outsiders that seemed to be beefing with T -- but really wasn’t -- he’s put up a new clip. In it, he writes, “Mysteries may seem strange. But that’s what makes them fun. Eric adores Taylor for who she is and what she has done… Focus on the background and shed light on the clues. On January 3rd, all will be revealed to you.”
The Outsiders is due out on February 11th.
How deep are NBC’s pockets for The Sound of Music Live? Pretty deep! Sources for The Hollywood Reporter estimate that the three-hour live product starring Carrie Underwoodis costing the network as much as $9 million.
While it’s expected that NBC will lose money on the initial premiere, network chairman Robert Greenblatt is looking to bank on at least one additional broadcast before Christmas, as well as the companion soundtrack (out now) and a DVD (out December 17th).
If the show is a hit, it could be a holiday season regular for the peacock network.
