Finals are finally over after a tough semester and I can now celebrate the most wonderful time of the year in full swing. Counting down the days until Christmas!holiday cheer is much needed. The holidays are a time for friends, family and the act of giving. As a college student, here's a list of our favorite things during Christmas time!
1. Christmas Music
How can it be Christmas without Christmas music?! Whether it is classy Michael Buble or you are bumping to Ariana Grande, whatever your Christmas jingle jam is, it’ll be on blast for at least 25 days.
2. Gift Giving to your friends and family
3. Receiving Gifts
I know Christmas is all about the giving, but who doesn’t like receiving gifts?!
4. Ugly Sweaters

Though they may be ugly, we can’t get enough of buying them to take a cute Instagram pic for the holidays.
5. Holiday flavors
Peppermint, Gingerbread, pumpkin spice...Yes please, Starbucks here I come!
Whether it is with your spouse or if it is only with your dog, cuddling up after a long day just feels so right during the colder months.
