Seven Signs You're Already Ready For The Holiday Season

This is the time of the year you've been waiting for and you won't wait any longer.

Seven Signs You're Already Ready For The Holiday Season
National Lampoon's Christmas Vacation

Halloween is over. Daylight Savings has past. We have officially entered into November. What does this mean? It means we are bound to catch the super-early holiday TV commercials any day now; we will soon see our local department stores decorated accordingly; and we might hear a Christmas song on the radio this week. Insanity, some say! It's way too early to start thinking about the holidays!

I say nay. I say bring on the Thanksgiving cooking, the gingerbread house building, the Black Friday madness. I cannot wait to pick out the perfect Christmas tree with my parents and go gift shopping for my friends. This is the most wonderful time of the year, people. What's so wrong about it arriving a little bit early?

Here are seven signs that you agree:

1. You've got your mind on winter break.

Have you begun the countdown to the end of the semester yet?

2. You are already thinking about what gifts to give.

...while simultaneously checking on your bank account.

3. You're already writing drafts of your wishlist.

Now it's a matter of cough-hinting in conversations what you'd like to receive from your loved ones this year.

4. Seasonal food cravings are beginning.

Need Joey say more?

5. Seasonal baking cravings are beginning.

Your sweet tooth is beckoning. You're just as excited as Justin.

6. You're looking forward to all the good television there is to watch on Thanksgiving.

You have all month to master your channel-flipping skills — and you'll need it, if you want to watch the parade, "March of the Wooden Soldiers, the Honeymooners" marathon and all the football games.

7. You can't wait to spend time with your family and your old friends.

And, you know...hug and sing to each other.

74 Reasons Why I Love My Best Friend

You can be yourself without having to explain yourself, because she accepts you and loves you just the way you are.

Have you ever found that one person in your life who you literally could not live without? You can talk to her about anything. She's the only person who will look you straight in the eyes and say, "You're stupid." You two can ride around or sit at your house for hours and always have something to talk about. You can be yourself without having to explain yourself because she accepts you and loves you just the way you are.

8 Spotify Playlists To Get You In The Autumn Mood

The temperature may not be very Autumn-like, but these playlists sure are.

Autumn is my favorite time of the year. The leaves change, pumpkin spice everything hits the shelves (thank you, world!), the 13 Nights of Halloween on Freeform (formerly abcfamily) and the temperature drops. Well, the temperature is supposed to drop. Being in south Alabama, however, means that the temperature may be relatively low early in the mornings, but you're still going to suffer in the afternoon. So if the weather outside isn't getting you in the Autumn mood, maybe these Spotify playlists will help you slip into that wonderful, Autumn state of mind.

First Snow

It's the Most Wonderful Time of the Year!

First Snow

I have never understood why grown-ups complain when the leaves are all off the trees, and the temperatures take a decided turn towards the zero on the thermometer. I hear complaints about the impending winter weather, and the driving in the snow and ice. We live in Pennsylvania, so I bite my tongue instead of stating the obvious: Maybe you should move to a warmer climate?
