    25 Times People Hilariously Called Out The Ridiculous Queer Energy In "Happiest Season"

    "Have they ever met a lesbian?!"

    In the spirit of the holidays, Hulu dropped the Christmas-themed rom-com, Happiest Seasons last Friday. The story centers around long-term couple, Abby (Kristen Stewart) and Harper (Mackenzie Davis), who travel to see Harper's family for Christmas. But there's one hitch in their plans: Harper has yet to come out to her family.

    The movie is sweet, heartbreaking, and a fun shake up to the myriad of other Christmas rom-coms out there. Plus, Dan Levy is it in!

    Of course, the internet had a very strong reaction to this wonderfully queer experience. Below are some of the best tweets/tumblr posts:
