It's Monday, December 25: Christmas 2017. AKA the 🎶 most wonderful time of the year. 🎶 AKA the day legions of people ditched their families to refresh Kim Kardashian's Instagram feed for confirmation that her sister Kylie Jenner is pregnant.

You see, Kim has been counting down the days until Christmas by sharing photos of her family on Instagram. Here was "Day 24," Christmas Eve. Note that there is no Kylie.

And additionally note that their sister, Khloé Kardashian, confirmed her pregnancy via Instagram recently, which has only increased the pressure on Kylie, who has not personally confirmed her widely rumored pregnancy with Travis Scott.

You have all the Sparknotes now.

All this buildup caused a complete frenzy on social media on Christmas Day. People waited eagerly all day for Kim to share her Christmas Day photo in hopes that this was all a PR stunt to confirm Kylie's pregnancy in the most dramatic way possible.
