Video Roundup: The Best Moments of 2013 and Christmas Special

New Year's is often a chance for us to be a bit more introspective and reflective on the year that has past and look forward to the infinite possibilities the new year will bring. If you have been caught in the whirlwind madness of the holidays and perhaps neglected our national boyfriend, here is a chance for you to catch up and to walk through a year of memories.

Let us begin with some highlights from the Christmas special. Kevin Smith has delighted fans for a long time by inviting them over for an engaging evening. What happens when Kevin is in your home as a guest for the holidays?
The Christmas special also featured some wonderful musical acts that range from our national pride, Chris Hadfield, to respected artists within the industry. You can visit each performance on George's youtube page or by clicking on the link on the playlist in the next video. But first, we have Run DMC's Christmas in Hollis performed by a variety of hip hop stars.

Next up is a clever and witty trailer for Boxing Day with many notable stars.

Then there's the secret fantasy of a few people out there. What would happen if we not only had one George, but three? Here are all three versions of our national boyfriend welcoming us into the new year and having some rather interesting conversations.

Now we get to the point where we look back upon the year with our graceful host and the moments we have shared. Shall we begin with taking a look back at what happened in the world of science?

George is often filled with important messages. Here is what he had to say.

One of the most delightful aspects of live television and one where the host/interviewer doesn't prompt you with questions beforehand is the opportunity for surprises to occur on the show. Here is a look back on some of those moments.

It can also take us into much more intimate settings where we see the humanity behind the celebrity. Here are the top confessions of the year.

But at the end of the day, audiences alike tune in for some fun.

That concludes our video roundup for 2013. May your new year bring you peace, love, harmony, good health, and success.  Don't forget to tune into George's radio show as well as he brings us the second half of the Hundo and counts down the top 100 songs of the year.
