This Thanksgiving, FOX dishes out extra helpings of family fun with two new animated holiday specials.

Thanksgiving is almost here, and for cooking and baking buffs, such as ourselves, it’s the most wonderful time of the year! Whatever your culinary contribution, make sure that your post-Thanksgiving plans include freshening your breath (especially if you had seconds of the stuffing with extra onions)! Lucky for you, Scope Dual-Blast comes in two onion-fighting flavors: Fresh Mint Blast and Icy Mint Blast, so don’t forget to add Scope Dual-Blast to your Thanksgiving day shopping list!
We all have our favorite dishes to prepare each year. Whether it’s an appetizer, main dish, dessert, or the turkey, the folks at Scope want to know . . .
Can you picture yourself on an island getaway? How about climbing Mount Everest? Well, with Downy’s Facebook Mashup application, you can mash up your photos to see what it would be like!
Downy Simple Pleasures is mashing up unexpected fragrances and wants you to mash up your favorite photos. All you have to do is sort through your favorite Facebook photos using Downy’s Mashup application and share with your friends. They’ll get a kick out of it!

New Balance recognized a fit girl’s commitment to comfort, style, and the environment by creating the athletic shoe of our recycled dreams: newSKY. Constructed out of fabric made from postconsumer PET plastic bottles (average eight 20-oz. bottles per shoe), the newSKY designers created a chic, stylish shoe that you can feel good about wearing and get pumped up for your workouts in! What’s their secret?
The designers utilized a more traditional stitching technique – allowing the recycled material to be soft, pliable, but, most importantly, very comfortable on your foot, making newSKY true to everything we already love about New Balance footwear.
That’s right. Not only is the holiday celebration and charity season in full effect, but your tiny tot can get in on the action this year! How you ask? With Huggies® of course!

And, in the true spirit of the season, when you “Dress ‘Em Like Claus For a Cause” in the holiday-inspired Huggies Santa Diapers, Huggies will help a baby in need by donating to Every Little Bottom. In 2011, Huggies' Every Little Bottom has committed to donating more than 22.5 million diapers.
The stuffing in the stocking? You can spread the holiday cheer by uploading a photo of your little one at AmericanGreetings.com and creating a one-of-a-kind holiday ecard. And the bow on the gift? For every ecard created or shared, Huggies' Every Little Bottom will donate to a baby in need!
Our living spaces are always in need of a little sprucing up, whether it’s a feng shui approach or, in this case, an unexpected mash up of influences! Minimalism is sleek and chic, but mixing and matching different décors in your home is a refreshing way to live in style.

Riddle me this: it's winter and basically subzero temps outside BUT you're tired of wearing a plain-Jane-sensible jacket (that, let's face it, kind of looks like a less-fitted sleeping bag). So what's a freezing fashionista to do?
Easy! Enter to win the latest and warmest gear from Columbia, of course. Five lucky winners will get Columbia's Kaleidaslope Jacket featuring Omni-Heat. Omni-Heat uses little silver dots (kind of like a space blanket) applied to the inside of the jacket to reflect heat back to you. It's also breathable, so you'll never OVER heat. Each jacket jackpot winner will also get the Peak Ascent Peruvian Hat (also armed with Omni-Heat technology) to keep your brain-freeze at bay.
Tell us how you will put the Columbia Kaleidaslope jacket and Peak Ascent Peruvian hat to use. Leave a comment below for a chance to win.
Admit it, more than once you've looked at tourists touring your city and thought to yourself, "self: you really should take in the sights of the city that you call home." Well, better late than never to take an Urban Hike, so strap on your best Timberland "these boots were made for walking" boots and get on your way! Here are a few must-see Urban Hikes in a few of our favorite cities.
San Francisco: Sail over to Marin (the sunnier side of the bay) and hike down to Stinson Beach. Added bonus: you can check out some of the world's biggest and oldest redwoods of Muir Woods on your way to the beach.
Boston: They don't call it the "walking city" for no reason. Get lost for a few hours in the Mass Audubon's Ipswich River Wildlife Sanctuary, and be sure to tell Sam Adams we say hi (although you're unlikely to meet many people on the trails).
Chicago: Everyone loves a walk at sunset, and Chicagoans are no exception. Hike to the city's perimeter of the Waterfall Glen Forest Preserve Loop. In truth, it's more of a nature walk than a hike, so bring your camera along for the ride.
New York: Ready to get out of the city? We thought so. Hop on the train and hop off in the Hudson Highlands State Park; this trail makes a serious ascent from river-level to roll along a picturesque ridge.
