There are two things that (should) come to everyone’s mind when they think about Christmas: Elf, and childhood. One of the most fun-loving and fam-friendly movies of all time where Will Farell embodies the child in all of us, and those flashbacks to our younger days when Santa Clause, snow, and Christmas morning was all we could think about.

Still, as we get older, things change, and our attitudes towards Christmas change as well. However, some of us believe that we will never lose sight of the "Buddy the Elf" that lives inside us all. Without further ado, here are the 10 things all of us Christmas lovers will never outgrow.

1. No matter how old you get, there's still that little kid inside of you that gets excited when you hear the name "Santa Clause"


The spirit of Saint Nick is real, and always will be.

2. Those days when you go to the mall and every parent had the same idea to get a picture with their child and Santa Clause so you just join in the excitement because, why not


Who doesn't miss these days? I mean, come on, seriously.

3. All the grinches out there start to get annoyed asking why you're always in such a good mood around the holidays but you just stare at them and think


Snow, winter clothes, hot chocolate, ice skating... The real question is, why aren't you in such a good mood?

4. People keep trying to tell you that there is no Santa Clause, but you refuse to believe any of it


Do I believe that a large man slides down my chimney at night and eats my mom's cookies? No, maybe not. But the spirit of Saint Nick is real, it just is, okay?

5. Your parents put you on phone duty during the holidays to deal with the telemarketers because they know you'll drive away anyone at this time of year


I could be offended... But I'll take this one as a compliment.

6. You are always going to be excited about Christmas, but you still ensure you recognize the little things that make every day so special


Honestly, when is this ever not good news?

7. You try to be like everyone else in your family and enjoy the Christmas Eve party but you know you're going to wake up the next morning with a throbbing headache


Time to start asking if it's really going to be worth it...

8. FINALLY, Christmas morning comes and you see that the tree is fully decorated with lights and ornaments and you just look at your parents in amazement like


Truly, a huge accomplishment to all the parents who pull this off without fail.

9. When Christmas ends and everyone pulls you aside and tells you that it's time to go back to reality and ease out of the overly aggressive Christmas mood just a bit


I mean, I'm a bit bummed out, but I do understand.

10. And at first, you're pretty understanding, that is until you realize you have to wait 365 days until it's socially acceptable for you to re-embrace the Buddy in you


Please, just one more Christmas carol...

15 Things To Do This Summer If You're Already Bored

There's only so much sitting around and watching Netflix you can do at one time.

Whether you just got out of school for the summer or you've been off for a month, we all struggle with summer brain and boredom. There's only so much sitting around and watching Netflix you can do at one time. Here are some things you can do to keep your summer brain from taking over.

1. Go for a swim

It's summer for goodness sakes! Go find a community pool, lake, ocean, or a body of water cool yourself off this summer. Or if you're not into getting your hair wet this summer...

2. Catch up on your Vitamin D

You are finally emerging from the library after a tough semester and seeing the light of day and enjoying the summer weather. Go lay out in the sun and work on that tan after getting out of a BRUTAL winter.

3. Read a book

The summer is a great time to catch up on some reading. Now that you don't have the mandatory reading to do, you can catch up on whatever books you are into. Here's a list of some books you can read up on.

4. Pinterest surf

It may be for crafts or catching up the latest fashion trends, get into Pinterest and create the summer board that will keep you busy this summer.

5. Go to a baseball game

From Little League to an MLB game, enjoy America's sport. Better yet...

6. Go outside a play a sports game

If baseball's your thing, gather a team and go have fun. Soccer or volleyball, whatever you do enjoy the outdoors and the warm weather!

7. Go enjoy the outdoors

Because before you know it, it will be cold again and wish you could go outside again.

8. Bowling!

You have to have those rainy day activities in your back pocket just in case. You can go to a real alley or just bowling on the Wii (because you know we all love the Wii) but it gets you off your feet and distracted from the endless videos and TV shows that you are watching all day.

9. Putt putt golf

It's cheesy but so much fun. If you suck at golf like me, mini golf is the next best thing.

10. Go pick some fresh fruit

There are plenty of the farms open now that sell fresh fruit. Some even let you pick your own fruit like strawberries and peaches. Go check it out and go exploring!

11. Organize your room

You know it's been ages since you last cleaned your room. Spring cleaning came late this year but better late than ever!!

12. Enjoy time with your family

Whether you are back for the summer, the weekend, or about to leave for college, enjoy the time you have with your family. They love you and they miss you. Suggest barbequing some hamburgers or making smores with a firepit, find the time to talk and create memories that will last a lifetime.

13. Ice cream!!!!

You can get ice cream anytime but come on! Nothing is better than ice cream on a hot day.

14. Roadtrip with your BFFs

Make it a long weekend and go explore your state or the state next door and get even closer to your best friends! Maybe you don't have the money for a vacation getaway, you can always...

15. Be a tourist in your hometown

Go to the closest city and visit some attractions you may not have been to or revisit some of your favorite spots.

There are lots of things to do this summer. I know a lot of these things require money that we may not all have unless you have a job. Either way, take some time for yourself this summer and have fun!
