The gifts are unwrapped. The stockings are unstuffed. Santa Claus is in a cookie-induced coma, and Christmas is over.

We don't mean to be totally bah-hum-bug over America's favorite winter holiday, but here at Daily RFT, we're glad to see an end to the Christmas carols and commercials that have been playing since October.

In honor of the fact that there are now 364 days until next Christmas, here are sixteen St. Louis cats and dogs who are super excited that Silent Night can now go silent.
