1. The Starbucks Cup
Nothing screams "it's Christmas time!" like those beautiful Starbucks Christmas cups. Sure they got backlash a year ago, but have you seen them this year?! Beautiful! In fact, I may just go get a soy toffee nut latte right now.
2. Michael Bublé.
Who doesn't want a voice as smooth as his serenading you with Christmas music while you sip your Starbucks latte in a coffee shop? I mean, this Canadian Cutie has one of the best Christmas records of all time. He's just so dang classy with his Sinatra-like crooning.
3. Christmas Cookies
I don't know about you, but as soon as December 1st hits, BOOM! I become a baking extraordinaire. Not that I don't bake the other 11 months of the year, but it all becomes heightened during the Christmas season.
4. ALL. THE. CHRISTMAS. MOVIES.
Let's be real here, this type of thing starts the day after Thanksgiving. I may or may not be speaking from experience...
5. Ugly Christmas Sweaters
To be fair, cardigan season starts in autumn. But we definitely up the ante when it comes to Christmas sweaters. After all, who doesn't love a good ugly Christmas sweater party??
6. Warm Drinks
A little taste of warmth going through your body feels amazing in the cold winter, whether it be something as simple, like hot chocolate, or something fancy, like mulled wine or a skinny peppermint mocha.
7. A Warm Fireside
Whether it be the subtle crackling of the fireplace or the faint smell of an apple cinnamon or vanilla peppermint coming from that Yankee Candle in your room, the smell of fire just adds an extra sense of coziness (even if you live in a warm/tropical area).
8. Lights, trees, and decorations
By this point, it is evident that a lot of people have jumped on the "I love Christmas Bandwagon." But we special snowflakes (see what I did there) who love Christmas become filled with glee, just because the world gets just a little happier around Christmas time.
9. Getting Bundled Up
There's something about scarves, hats, gloves, blankets and FUZZY SOCKS. And I don't know what it is, but this 'something' fills people with anticipation for the coming season. Plus, fun wintry prints add more festivity (as if you needed that). Like, c'mon, imagine having all of these in your closet to keep you nice and toasty...
Normally shopping is relatively fun, but when it is for Christmas, it becomes about a million times better and more exciting. You have to find that perfect gift for your best friend. Challenge accepted.
11. And, finally, Christmas Music
If you're crazy for Christmas, then listening to Christmas music starts on November 1st. Bring on Justin Bieber's Misletoe, and if that's not your style, please refer to #2 on this list.
Party on my Christmas Party People!
