All of us can relate to Buddy the Elf.

5 Reasons Why You're Basically Buddy The Elf During The Holidays

The movie "Elf" is by far an essential to the months of November and December (or the entire year). Everyone on the planet knows at least one quote from the movie, and true Christmas lovers can basically quote the whole movie. There's a little bit of Buddy the Elf in all of us, whether it's our extreme love of smiling or Santa, our inner Buddy the Elf definitely shows during the holiday season.

1. You think of alternative ways to get to the top of the tree.

Uhh ofcourse I don't need a ladder, I can totally reach. We've all been there: claiming you can reach the top of the tree to put the star on. However, in reality, we all may need that running start to get to the top.

2. Your winter excitement begins very early.

As soon as Nov. 1 hits, Christmas spirit is in the air. Although we sometimes tend to forget we have another holiday before Christmas, it's hard to contain our excitement, especially when there's Tollhouse cookie dough involved.

3. You anticipate Santa's arrival -- no matter how old you are.

Let's be honest here -- no matter how old you get, you still get excited when you see Santa. Whether it's seeing him at the end of the Macy's Thanksgiving Day Parade or at your local mall, you still get the same excitement realizing Christmas is on its way.

4. You blast Christmas music like it's your job.

One of the best parts of the holiday season is the Christmas music. Don't get me wrong -- Christmas music is awesome year-round. But, there's something about blasting all classic Christmas songs a few days leading up to Christmas (or the entire month) that really gets you in the holiday spirit.

5. You get so excited to spend time with family and friends.

Hands down, one of the best parts of the holidays is seeing your family and friends. From spending time with family you haven't seen in awhile to spending time with family and friends you see often, both are equally as special because you get to make memories and spend time with the people you love.
