This year's National Returns Day will be the biggest yet, UPS says

Carey is now speaking out in her first interview since the debacle. Talking with Entertainment Weekly, she reflected on what went wrong.

>> Mariah Carey's team says New Year's Eve performance was sabotaged

“All I can say is Dick Clark was an incredible person, and I was lucky enough to work with him when I first started in the music business,” she said. “I’m of the opinion that Dick Clark would not have let an artist go through that, and he would have been as mortified as I was in real time.”

“It’s not going to stop me from doing a live event in the future. But it will make me less trusting of using anyone outside of my own team,” she said. “My true fans have been so supportive, and I am so appreciative of them and everybody in the media that came out to support me after the fact, because it really was an incredible holiday season that turned into a horrible New Year’s Eve.”

Lost drone? Why the popular holiday gifts are going missing

Like any good pilot, Aiden Rood knows the number of successful landings should equal the number of successful take-offs, but that's easier said than done with a toy drone.

Aiden is being extra careful with his quad-copter because of what happened with the first one he got for Christmas.

“I don't know how, but what happened, it kept going up, up, up above the trees, the houses and out of sight,” Aiden said. “It was gone.”

Aiden and his dad searched for hours but never found it.

“Day before on Christmas, I had flown it for a second and it took off on me, too, so we felt bad and happy to get him another one,” said Aiden’s father, Benjamin Rood.

This time of year, runaway drones have a lot of parents turning to the internet. On Facebook, Fox25Boston.com found hundreds of pleas from moms and dads, as well as new "lost drone" groups popping up every day.

There's nothing you can do if your drone experiences a technical glitch or gets carried by the wind, but you can help avoid losing one to pilot error.

Search YouTube by the make and model of your drone for tips on how to fly it before you actually take to the sky.

Never take off with a low battery and consider writing your name and number on your drone, so if someone finds it, they will know it's yours.

After woman surprises homeless man with gifts, he pays it forward

UPDATE: Due to the amount of WSBTV.com readers who have asked to help Rick, Podzemny has made a GoFundMe page to help get him on his feet. 

ORIGINAL STORY: An East Atlanta woman was upset that she wouldn't be home for the holidays and was preparing for the worst – but what she didn't know is that it would be one of the best Christmases yet.

>> Read more trending stories

Knowing that it would be hard to not be with family over the holidays, Suzanne Podzemny decided to plan for what she thought would be a rough day.

"For the first time, I didn't make it home for Christmas," Podzemny said.

However, that feeling of sadness soon changed when Podzemny got a call from an unknown number.

Podzemny tells Channel 2's Kimberly Richardson she got a voicemail on Christmas Eve from her homeless friend, Rick.

Rick was calling Podzemny to wish her a Merry Christmas and Happy New Year -- and to let her know he loved her.

"Hey Suzanne, it's Rick," he said. "I love you and called to say Merry Christmas and Happy New Year. I love you. You can call me back at this number. This is my phone. I love you. Bye."

Podzemny's new plan on how she would spend Christmas Day? Invite Rick over for dinner.

"He was so excited because I told him we were having steak," Podzemny laughed.

Then, Podzemny started to ask herself, "What is Christmas without presents?"

Podzemny posted a message on Nextdoor asking for donations for Rick -- and neighbors all around East Atlanta decided to pitch in and help.

The response was unbelievable.

Gifts came pouring in and were items anywhere from wrapping paper, stocking stuffers, clothing, socks and new shoes.

Podzemny told Rick she would pick him up around 6 p.m. on Christmas.

"I told Rick he could take a shower and that I would do his laundry while we ate dinner," Podzemny said.

During dinner, Podzemny revealed to Rick that she had a few gifts for him.

"He started crying," Podzemny said. Rick had not yet seen the donations yet.

After opening a few gifts, Podzemny told Rick that she had one more present for him, but wasn't able to wrap it because of how bulky it was.

Podzemny took Rick into the room where all the donations were and his response was priceless. 

"He started doing what I knew he would do," Podzemny said. Rick started planning what to give to others he knew were in need.

So, with the help of Podzemny's girlfriend, Sarah Ruiz, they set off to deliver a few gifts.

However, Podzemny said no gift was greater than the gift Rick gave her.

"It's been the most meaningful Christmas yet," Podzemny said. "I am so lucky that Sarah and I met Rick. He tells us all the time how much it means to him that we saw him. He's not invisible -- he's a human." 

And to everyone who gifted things to Rick, he has a message for you.

"My name is Rick," he said. "And to all of you who gave Suzanne gifts to give me -- I love y'all and thank y'all. And may God bless y'all. Have a Merry Christmas and a Happy New Year."
