Kaling has already decided that he wants to make this a new holiday tradition for his three-year-old daughter Katherine.
Some of the cast’s friendships formed in “The office” they are so healthy and seemingly stronger than ever after all these years. Maybe nothing more than between Mindy Kaling and her on-screen lover, BJ Novak.
In an interview with Tory Burch on Friday, Kaling broke a very smart and sweet plan that she and Novak planned for Christmas this year.

Better yet, she has already decided that this plan is a guardian and a new tradition of the Kaling family.
“When you have your own kids, you can kind of make things up and then decide to do it every year,” she said laughing to Burch.
To make the experience even more moving, Novak already has a significant connection to Kaling’s three-year-old daughter, Katherine.
“Her best man is BJ Novak, and he will appear and go to our room, where the tree is, dressed as Santa Claus,” he shared. The idea came about because the pandemic made visiting Santa Claus an impossibility this year, and “she is the only child who doesn’t cry and scream”.
The whole plan certainly looks like something that would happen in “The Office” – we can imagine the madness induced by the pandemic now – but hopefully it will not end in some kind of strange disaster.

We can imagine Ryan of Novak simply taking off his beard and hat in the middle of the surprise and telling Kelly of Mindy that he can’t do that, that he has somewhere else to be and just a ghost, leaving his son traumatized and horrified.
Fortunately, this is real life and their friendship is much stronger than their relationship on the show – and they are much better people.
Hilarious, Mindy had one more detail to share. “Just so you know, we’re Hindus and BJ is Jewish, so that’s, like, cultural appropriation on our part,” she laughed. In a way, this is even sweeter, as it makes the new tradition even more personal.
