12 Reasons Thanksgiving Is The #1 Holiday, And Yes, It's Better Than Xmas

Thanksgiving is truly an incredible holiday. When companies begin promoting Christmas in October to earn extra money or when people put up their Christmas trees November 1st, it really begins to rub me the wrong way. I believe that Thanksgiving is the best holiday of the year and here are 12 obvious reasons why.

1. You can eat as much food and no one will judge you, because it's Thanksgiving. 

2. The ​​best​​ foods come out at Thanksgiving! It's when your family makes their best dishes for everyone to enjoy. 

3. Pumpkin pie.

There's really no more explanation needed.

4. Leftovers -you get free (incredibly tasting) food for the next several days. 

5. The post-Thanksgiving lunch nap. There is no other nap as good as this one. 

6. You don't have to buy any gifts, just show up with your covered dish and stuff your face.

Seriously, what's better than this?

7. You don't have to worry about liking the gift that your tacky aunt got you. 

There's truly nothing worse than having to worry about your reaction to someone's gift.

8. Perfect weather outside!

Not too hot, not too cold. Just cold enough to wear a cute sweater and just warm enough to leave the wool socks and coat at home.

9. The chance to visit your family.

You know you've missed them and there's no better way to catch up than over a meal.

10. ... and it also gives you the opportunity to leave sooner. 

We all love our family, but two weeks at home is sometimes just too much. Thanksgiving gives you the perfect long weekend to go home, visit with your family, relax, and get you back home in a timely manner.

11. It gives you the opportunity to reflect on everything good that has happened in your life the past year. 

12. It's a day dedicated to nothing but being thankful for everything and everyone in your life. 

Happy Thanksgiving everyone! Eat a lot and be thankful for all of the amazing things that happened in your life this year.

For as long as I can remember, I have been listening to The Beatles. Every year, my mom would appropriately blast “Birthday” on anyone’s birthday. I knew all of the words to “Back In The U.S.S.R” by the time I was 5 (Even though I had no idea what or where the U.S.S.R was). I grew up with John, Paul, George, and Ringo instead Justin, JC, Joey, Chris and Lance (I had to google N*SYNC to remember their names). The highlight of my short life was Paul McCartney in concert twice. I’m not someone to “fangirl” but those days I fangirled hard. The music of The Beatles has gotten me through everything. Their songs have brought me more joy, peace, and comfort. I can listen to them in any situation and find what I need. Here are the best lyrics from The Beatles for every and any occasion.

Small towns certainly have their pros and cons. Many people who grow up in small towns find themselves counting the days until they get to escape their roots and plant new ones in bigger, "better" places. And that's fine. I'd be lying if I said I hadn't thought those same thoughts before too. We all have, but they say it's important to remember where you came from. When I think about where I come from, I can't help having an overwhelming feeling of gratitude for my roots. Being from a small town has taught me so many important lessons that I will carry with me for the rest of my life.

I can't say "thank you" enough to express how grateful I am for you coming into my life. You have made such a huge impact on my life. I would not be the person I am today without you and I know that you will keep inspiring me to become an even better version of myself.

Course registration at college can be a big hassle and is almost never talked about. Classes you want to take fill up before you get a chance to register. You might change your mind about a class you want to take and must struggle to find another class to fit in the same time period. You also have to make sure no classes clash by time. Like I said, it's a big hassle.

This semester, I was waitlisted for two classes. Most people in this situation, especially first years, freak out because they don't know what to do. Here is what you should do when this happens.
