It's that time of year again folks. Here are my 25 favorite things about the holiday season.


1. Bringing the Christmas tree home on top of your car.

Anybody else open up the sky light so you could watch to make sure it didn't fall off the car on the way home?

2. Setting up the Christmas tree with popcorn, cocoa and music.

Strategically placing ornaments so that the cat doesn't get to the fragile ones. Actually just generally keeping your cat out of the decorations.

3. Countdown to Christmas on the Hallmark channel.

Everybody's guilty pleasure.

4. National Lampoon's Christmas Vacation.

Enough said.

5. The tradition of "vlogmas".

For all the hardcore Youtube fans out there.

6. Gingerbread house building parties with college friends.

If you haven't done this yet I highly recommend it.

7. Secret Santa

Clearly the best part of high school. Also, shamelessly admitting that planning it was your favorite part?

[rebelmouse-proxy-image https://media.rbl.ms/image?u=%2Ffiles%2F2016%2F12%2F02%2F636162527875842797922763238_giphy.gif&ho=https%3A%2F%2Faz616578.vo.msecnd.net&s=284&h=ffe4af080a693d86302b6165db5e189e1aa9797969d0a9b592913e664655bd08&size=980x&c=4005872424 crop_info="%7B%22image%22%3A%20%22https%3A//media.rbl.ms/image%3Fu%3D%252Ffiles%252F2016%252F12%252F02%252F636162527875842797922763238_giphy.gif%26ho%3Dhttps%253A%252F%252Faz616578.vo.msecnd.net%26s%3D284%26h%3Dffe4af080a693d86302b6165db5e189e1aa9797969d0a9b592913e664655bd08%26size%3D980x%26c%3D4005872424%22%7D" expand=1]

8. Lighting a fire and roasting marshmallows.

And of course accidentally lighting your marshmallow on fire only to realize it tastes the best that way.

9. Having a wrapping party with your siblings.

Trying to wrap that one weirdly-shaped package.

10. Coming home!

Counting down the days...

11. Seeing your Main Street all lit up.

That annual tree lighting ceremony.

12. Listening to Christmas albums on the drive back to school after Thanksgiving break.

Pentatonix Christmas album anyone?

13. Baking more Christmas cookies than you can eat.

And decorating sugar cookies with the family.

14. Winter Break.

That entire month home from college when you can spend time with high school friends and most importantly, don’t have any homework.

16. Driving around as a family to look at Christmas lights and going out for ice cream afterward.

Every town has that one house that goes too far...

17. Looking around at all of the candles during “silent night” at the Christmas Eve service.

And low-key trying not to burn all of your hair off.

18. All of the Starbucks Christmas drinks.

Actually just holiday-themed stuff in general.

19. Seeing the menorah all lit up on the last night for all you Jewish folk out there.

Again, trying not to burn all of your hair off. Why are there so many flammable moments associated with the holiday season?

20. Storefront Christmas windows in NYC.

Especially if you bask in their beauty while munching on some roasted chestnuts from a nearby street vendor.

21. Christmas cartoons

A Charlie Brown Christmas, The Grinch Who Stole Christmas, just to name a few...

22. Going Christmas caroling.

Even after you can't feel your toes anymore.

23. General cheer/charitable mood.

Here's to all the people who stand outside in the bitter cold for the Salvation Army.

24. Getting fuzzy socks in your stocking.

Anybody else wear fuzzy socks all day every day during winter?

25. Coming down Christmas morning and seeing presents under the tree.

Nothing beats that feeling.

Imagine that someone being the one who carried you for 9th months in their belly, taught you how to walk, fought with you about little things that only a mother and daughter relationship could understand. You can have a countless number of father figures in your life, but really as my mom always said, " you only get one mom."
