9 Ways To Spread Christmas Cheer To Your Anti-Early-Christmas Friends

IT IS NEVER TOO EARLY

I WILL STILL EAT TURKEY AND THANK A PILGRIM SO STOP YOUR HATING!

There are two types of people in November....

I just so happen to be Buddy the Elf. I have no shame in admitting my Christmas tree has been lighting up my teeny dorm room since October 30th....

Yes, I do know "it's not even Thanksgiving yet."

I'm not skipping a holiday, people!

I love Thanksgiving just as much as the Pilgrims did way back when. I will celebrate it by stuffing my face with all the yummy things and giving thanks for the many blessings in my life. One of those blessings being that I have the freedom to begin celebrating the most wonderful time of the year *gasp* EARLY!

I just simply cannot take the negativity any longer. And as a Psychology major, I understand there is only one way to put an end to it...

REVERSE PSYCHOLOGY *Insert evil laugh here*

1. DECORATE ALL THE THINGS

Put up the trees. Hang the stockings. Light up your house so it's visible from Pluto. And definitely, put up the huge inflatable Santa.

2. And show them all said decorations

Post them on the 'gram, tweet them, throw them on Pinterest because you know they're worthy, and my gosh even put them on Facebook.

3. Cue the music

Blare Christmas tunes 24/7. I'm talking all the time. In the shower. In the car. At the gym. During meals. Morning. Night. And Noon. Let the jams be heard.

4. Greet them with a very jolly, "Merry Christmas."

November 15th? MERRY CHRISTMAS!!!!

5. Buy them ugly Christmas sweater.

Or two... Or three...

6. Invite them for movie night to watch ELF

And do what he says.. Especially eat cookie dough. Yeah, eat all the cookie dough.

7. Bake them Christmas cookies

You're not you when you're hungry... Maybe a good cookie will bring them to their Christmas senses

8. Bring them a Christmasy drink

No one, I mean no one can resist hot cocoa with lots of marshmallows, seasonal Starbucks drinks or EGGNOG

9. Love their Grinchy self-hard

Even if they're still devoted to waiting until after Thanksgiving...

Whether you decide to begin celebrating Christmas early or not, I hope that whenever you do, you do it in a way that brings joy to you and everyone around you. It's truly the most wonderful time of the year!

And for real, I promise I'm not skipping Thanksgiving. I just really want to eat my turkey while I look at my beloved Christmas tree.

These 11 Face Masks On Etsy Support Small Businesses While Fighting The Spread Of Coronavirus

We're staying safe as states start lifting lockdown guidelines.

I, like most people who have had the luxury of being able to stay at home during this time, haven't spent much time outdoors at all. But when I do brave the great outdoors for a walk or to get to the grocery store, you won't find me without a mask.

My family and I were lucky enough to have family friends who were sewing some and had extras to give to us, but most of my friends and loved ones outside my immediate family have had to order some (or make a makeshift one out of scarves or bandanas).

13 Reasons We're Using Quarantine As The Ultimate Excuse For Online Shopping This Month

The one thing we haven't distanced from is our bank account.

Throughout quarantine, I've been FaceTiming most of my friends in a full turtleneck or the go-to cozy sweater I keep wrapped around the chair in my room. Either way, I always have tea in my hands to keep myself warm — till this past week.

For most of the country who hasn't had the luck of quarantining in 90-degree weather on their family's lake house or with a backyard pool, things began to change this month. Our favorite shows came out with summer seasons, the sun came out, and we started spending more time outside.

I Sat Down (Virtually) With Morgan Wooten To Talk About Coronavirus's Impact On The Wellness Industry

Just because coronavirus has greatly impacted the wellness industry doesn't mean wellness stops.

Morgan Wooten

If you're anything like me, your weekly fitness classes are a huge part of your routine. They keep me fit, healthy, and sane. Honestly, these classes help my mental health stay in tip-top shape just as much as they help my physical health.

Due to the coronavirus (COVID-19) pandemic, gyms and fitness studios are facing temporary closure. Yes, this means my personal routine is thrown a curveball, but this also means the wellness industry is one of many that is looking at unemployment and hardship. Do I miss my Monday spin class? Of course. But do the wellness professionals whose worlds were flipped upside down have a lot more to overcome than a slight change of routine? Absolutely. Thankfully, if anyone can prove the ultimate flexibility, it's the wellness industry.

I Spoke To A California ER Doctor About COVID-19, And Y'all, Our Healthcare Workers Know What's Up

In light of what's going on in the world, it's time to get some front-line perspective.

It seems like the only thing I do these days is scroll through social media in a desperate attempt to gain information. My phone has called me out on my screen time more than once, and I just continue to ignore it. You're probably in the same boat — stuck at home, scrolling deeper and deeper into a hole of conspiracy theories and possible "back to normalcy" dates, hungry for information.

While we know that the news is not our mental health's friend these days, getting reliable information is helpful and necessary.
