Merry (late) Christmas everyone!! I hope you had an amazing Christmas; I know I did. I could list why the holiday season is the BEST time of year forever, but here are my top eight. 😊
1. NO SCHOOL!
Waking up late, watching video after video on YouTube. No further explanation needed.
Don’t you agree that food just tastes better when it’s the holidays? Warm hot chocolate, buttery sugar cookies with those green sprinkles, the cinnamon-y gingerbread men – all while sitting near fireplace looking out on a winter wonderland. (Or a tropical beach depending on where you live)
Vibrant reds, greens and gold lights glitter from every lamppost and drape around every tree. Various Santas smile from every corner, three wise men bestow gifts upon a little baby Jesus. Christmas trees sparkle with colorful ornaments and wreathes and bows decorate wooden doors. This is definitely the most wonderful time of year. ❤️
4. GIVING AND RECEIVING
(I’m looking at the word “receiving” and it doesn’t look like it’s spelled right in caps but oh well)
Gift-giving has to be my favorite part of the holidays. The joy giving presents brings you and the other person is one of the best feelings in the world! Also, it’s fun to go shopping for presents. (Well mostly I just like shopping 😂)
5. HOLIDAY SALES
Cause I like to buy stuff… enough said.
6. HOLIDAY SCENTED EVERYTHING!
Ever wondered what the holidays smell like? Well, I guess lots of people did because there’s holiday scented everything – candles, bath bombs, pencils, and everything in between, and I absolutely love it. Pine, cedar, gingerbread spice, I promise it smells like snow (and I don’t even know what snow smells like)
7. SPENDING TIME WITH FAMILY AND FRIENDS
The holiday season is really about community, about everyone coming together to celebrate hope and love, and have lots of fun! The beauty and enjoyment of the holidays is even better when it’s spent with others.
