Merry Christmas Eve, happy holidays, feliz navidad and happy festivus.  Hope you are snuggled up in front of a warm fire and not fighting crowds at the mall (or your family in the living room). Rest happy with the knowledge that NORAD (The North American Aerospace Defense Command) is tracking santa's path again this year, a tradition that stretches back to 1955.  (Don't forget to check out the rival Google Santa Tracker .)  I guess it's slow at their office around the holidays too.  As you probably already know, the Baltimore Ravens clinched the AFC North again this year, ending a losing streak and defeating the Super Bowl champions New York Giants.  As the debate over gun control rages on, CNN is reporting that two firefighters are being treated for injuries after being shot at while responding to a fire in Webster, NY. || ONLINE TRENDS || RavensNation (NFL playoff picture)

Barack Obama may already have been officially inaugurated yesterday, but don't tell that to the people on Washington's National Mall this morning: A second, more outdoor ceremony today will give the public a view as Obama starts his second term. Some of that public will be recovering from not-fully-remembered AFC Championship viewing parties, as the Baltimore Ravens start preparing for the Super Bowl . Finally, Lebron James did not spare his thoughts as the Sacramento Kings sold for a princely sum. See full details via the links below.

Right now, Twitter and Google users around Baltimore are looking toward both a potentially slushy weekend and the new year beyond, according to those sites' metrics. Meanwhile, Philadelphia rappers Meek and Cassidy have continued their fake fight in order to gain attention. (Based on twitter trends, it looks like it may have worked.) In homes across America, however there was worry this week about actual fights: As the relatives wouldn't go away and NetFlix went down, hosts who wanted to go out nearly went crazy instead.

Justin Timberlake has released a small slice of his next album, "The 20/20 Experience," causing the New York Times to spin in circles spouting wardrobe puns. Also catching the Internet's eye over the weekend and this morning: Free speech advocate Aaron Swartz committed suicide after what friends and relatives say was a devastating smear campaign, the Ravens will be playing the Patriots for a conference championship, Quentin Tarantino is not afraid of controversy and there are shiny new things in Detroit.

The conspiracy theorists are out in force after both Facebook and Google had technical issues yesterday. The outages of various services including Gmail appear to be unrelated. Facebook was down for about 20 minutes for some users and is back this morning. Google problems were more extensive, but they too appear to be resolved. But thankfully, Twitter has been unaffected and able to feed the paranoia.  Last night's Real Housewives of Beverly Hills featured a bombshell about the normally boring yet glittery Adrienne Maloof . But in a bit of crafty editing on Bravo's part, no one was able to hear the super catty comment that lead to the Jerry Springer-esque bleep-off.

Why is “Trouble Maker,” a K-pop song that's been around for a year, suddenly getting worldwide Twitter love? I blame end-of-year lists and an upcoming awards ceremony. On a less global scale, residents along the East Coast continue to be curious about this weekend's weather, and Maryland residents are getting antsy about whether Congress will manage to avoid the fiscal cliff. Additionally, there's national attention focused on what lawmakers decide to do regarding guns. Finally, a member of Australia's Janoskians has given opinions on his favorite foods.

Royals! Redskins! And a really really bad breakup! Today's online trends have it all. First up, royal wife Kate Middleton is again under the media microscope -- fortunately for her she has all her clothes on this time. The royal baby (or babies!) received loads of attention yesterday and now the online discussion is moving toward what we should name the baby (or babies!). I'm sure the Duke and Duchess will consult Reddit before the momentous decision. Meanwhile, Redskins rookie sensation  Robert Griffin (a.k.a.

Well, 12:01 a.m. came and went (even in Mayan Time, otherwise known as Central Time) and nothing really happened. Although Annapolis was plunged into darkness and bathed in an eerie blue light, BGE assures us it wasn't apocalypse-related. Pessimists are still holding out hope though, guessing maybe it will happen at the end of long day's work right before your Christmas vacation starts. Need more conspiracy theories to keep your Mayan Apocalypse hopes alive? Well, " Jersey Shore" has ended its run. Snooki and company will now fade into obscurity, subsisting off of occasional appearances on "Celebrity Ghost Stories" and "Jersey Shore/Shahs of Sunset Challenge XXXIII.

It's the end of the world as we know and New Zealand feels fine. Yup, it's official the Mayan Apocalypse has snubbed Oceanian and the rest of the world will likely make it through Dec. 21 in one piece. (Shocking I know). The Mayan Calendar has run out so it's probably time to break down and get that  2013 Pooped Puppies  calendar. There is one person who is probably pretty pleased right now and that's the newly crowned  Miss Universe Olivia Culpo . Imagine having the universe end on the first day of your super-sexy reign that would be so not cool.

Days after the deadly  Sandy Hook school shooting, the tragedy is still dominating news sites, social media and search traffic. The coverage is splintering a bit, but major trends include: last night's emotional speech by President Obama, the Westboro Baptist Church 's plans to protest the funerals of the victims, and more details about the ammunition and weapons that Adam Lanza used. Meanwhile, many other Americans sought to escape the grisly news and took refugee in escapist TV fare.

Goodbye 2012, it's been real. But on the trends front, we end on a sad note. Kim Kardashian and Kanye West -- two of the most obnoxious people in the world -- are reproducing. Joe Flacco can't even claim the title of the NFL's most pathetic quarterback. Thanks to Congress , the economy may be on the verge of collapse. And Hillary Clinton is in the hospital with a blood clot.  Happy New Year everybody!  In between auto-tuned sets, Kanye West confirmed last night what the gossip mags have been speculating about for months.

Did you hear Time has named its Person of the Year and The Voice has a new winner? Bored? Not impressed? Well, what if I told you I had a video of a  GOLDEN EAGLE snatching a BABY !!!!!  YouTube and Reddit are buzzing this morning with a video purportedly out of Canada that shows a large bird momentarily picking up a small child. Don't worry the kiddie was not whisked away to the nest atop Death Mountain. The video is probably fake, but that hasn't stopped people from freaking out and watching, including me. [UPDATE: Yup, the video is fake.]
