6 Of My Favorite Things About Christmas

There is just something different about Christmastime and it’s hard not to love. It really is the most wonderful time of the year.

1. The overall feeling of joy and love

Everyone just seems to be in a better mood, filled with the happiness of the holiday season as we celebrate the birth of our Savior.

2. Watching Christmas movies

I start watching Christmas movies the first of November and don’t stop until the first of January. Once I am home for break I watch one every day. From Hallmark Christmas movies, to the holiday classics, to Christmas comedies, I love it.

3. Holiday parties and events

Who doesn’t love getting dressed up in their Christmas outfits and going out with friends and family?

4. Nonstop Christmas music

Road trips are so much better this time of year. You can’t help but sing along to the classic tunes.

5. The Christmas tree and all of the other decorations

One of my favorite things about this season is sitting by the Christmas tree at night with all of the lights on throughout the house.

6. A candlelight service

I love a Christmas Eve/ candlelight service when the lights are off and the whole congregation holds up their candles and sings “Silent Night.”

Alone At The Met

I survive a day alone in NYC.

It was six in the evening. I was sitting in the courtyard of a Renaissance-era Italian villa, glancing around at the statues, most notably one of a boy removing a thorn from his foot. Despite the supposedly relaxing setting, I was incredibly anxious. My phone was at less than 5 percent battery, and once it died I would be completely disconnected from my family and peers, alone in one of the largest art museums in the country.

The Mets And Me

They may be the worst sometimes, but this baseball team has given me more than I could ask for.

On September 3rd, 2001, a sea of children littered my home's navy-carpeted den to watch baseball during my dad's 40th birthday extravaganza. A baseball game flickered on the TV, and a red and blue bubble of a scoreboard sat in the bottom right corner of the screen. The New York Mets and the Philadelphia Phillies were in a wild game at Veterans' Stadium. As I, a five-year-old boy with a jumble of curly blonde hair, sat in the back of the kid clump, I wondered which team I should root for. After a long debate with myself, I decided that I should root for the team that's winning (duh). But, as the ninth inning rolled around with the Phils maintaining a 7-5 lead, some magic occurred. The Mets put up five runs in one frame, stunning the Phillie fans in the room and winning the game 10-7.
