Ladies and gentleman, it is officially time to start blasting Mariah Carey's 'All I Want For Christmas Is You' as you drive down the street. Even though it still might not be totally acceptable to attach reindeer antlers to the top of your cars, there are plenty of ways to get involved in the holiday spirit!

1. 25 Days of Christmas Movie Marathon 

Easily one of the best holiday traditions out there. Get snuggled up in your matching pajama set, have some extra hot chocolate ready, and tune into the classic Christmas movies broadcasted every year. Take a night in to truly sit back, relax, and get into the Christmas spirit.

2. Ice Skating in NYC is a MUST

The best way to be a tourist in New York City is to go ice skating! Grab your loved ones for a fun night of skating (or trying to pull off like you can actually skate before you break an ankle after falling on the floor repeatedly). There are ice skating rinks located in Rockefeller Center and in Bryant Park surrounded by glistening Christmas lights and more!

3. Visit Christmas Village Love Park in Philly!

Visit Philadelphia's finest Christmas attraction! For all those who live closer to the greater Philadelphia area, check out The Christmas Village for a chance to watch live performances, attend different events, and take pictures centered around spreading holiday fun!

4. Anyone ready to bake some Christmas cookies?

All I'm saying is if you haven't already bought the holiday-themed Pillsbury cookies you are not celebrating the holiday season right! What better way to spend time with your family than to break out your cookie baking skills by making some tasty treats!? Not only is it a great way to spend the afternoon with loved ones, but also makes any home feel incredibly ready for the holiday season.

5. Alright, it's time to see who can build the best gingerbread house!

Building gingerbread houses are all fun and games until your friend gets a little too competitive, and makes their house look like a legitimate mansion while your's looks like it was done by a 2-year-old. You can purchases any gingerbread house from stores like Target, or Five Below to add some competition into the holiday fun!

6. See the famous Christmas tree in NYC!

New York City is known during the holiday season for this beautiful Christmas tree, and every year and it attracts more and more tourists from all over! A great way to get some holiday pictures on your Instagram is taking one in front of this beautiful tree.

7. Go to a local Holiday Light Show! 

Ever year, designated houses like to overly decorate their homes with Christmas lights, blow ups, and people dressed in costumes to attract multiple guests to check out their light show! This attraction is incredibly fun to visit to see what each home can do to make their home looked decked out in lights throughout the course of the holiday season.

My boyfriend and I go each year, it has become a special tradition for us. Look up local light shows in your area for you and your significant other to visit and enjoy an extravagant night of lights!

8. Attend a Christmas Parade near you!

Local holiday parades are the best way to not only get families to come together to celebrate the holiday season, but also the community. Check out on your local community website about upcoming events regarding a holiday parade today!

Last week, I ranked The Office's Christmas episodes, so this week I'm going to rank the episodes from That 70's Show, my favorite show as a teenager. Still with the highest number being the best because of how this website works.

1. Winter (Season 7)

The show peaked in seasons 5 & 6, so while this episode has some great moments, it just doesn't measure up to the others on this list. Not to mention the Jackie & Hyde drama was a real downer.

2. The Best Christmas Ever (Season 1)

The first season's Christmas episode also has some classic moments, but the comedy just wasn't as strong in the earlier seasons.

3. Hyde's Christmas Rager (Season 3)

The Christmas party at Hyde's place was great, however, the Jackie & Donna plot feels a little lacking compared to some of the other Christmas episode plots.

4. An Eric Foreman Christmas (Season 4)

I tend to skip season 4 because Eric and Donna's breakup was hard on me, but this is a really good Christmas episode. Not to mention, Kelso's Christmas special is everything.

5. Christmas (Season 6)

This episode has everything. Red as Santa, Jackie and Hyde being adorable, the school dance, Eric finally being popular, Donna's bacon, and Fez with the bullies. And the TNT scene. Everything a Christmas special should be.

So there you go. Enjoy your holiday bingewatch!

I'm Keeping My Christmas Tree Up All Winter And There's Nothing You Can Do About It

It's the WINTER Season... ;-)

I think that my tree would not be considered Christmas-y if the ornaments are taken off and the lights are kept on. I think to just looks wintry. I am also keeping up decorations that say "let it snow", and I am keeping up any snowman without holly berries or presents in their hands.

The tree looks wintry in my opinion. It looks pretty with the lights and brings the room together. It gives off a warm ambiance, unlike that of fluorescent lighting.

I've taken all ornaments off except for gold snowflakes and I've left the silver tinsel garland on as well as the lights. It looks wintry to me still. I will probably be taking the whole tree down by the end of this month to prepare for Valentine's Day decorating. (Yes, I pretty much decorate my apartment for every holiday—sue me).

There's nothing like coming downstairs and seeing those lights sparkling.

Or coming inside from a dreary, rainy day outside and seeing them light up the room in a calm, warm, and comforting glow.

Or having a bad day, looking up, and seeing them shine.

It sort of makes me upset when I come downstairs and see that someone has unplugged them, to be honest.

I guess they don't see it as I do.

Pretty, twinkling lights forever!
