Christmas in 16 GIFS

The day that is obviously very full of happiness, relaxation, and just enjoying the holiday season for what it is.

Christmas Eve:

Yes the day that is obviously very full of happiness, relaxation, and just enjoying the holiday season for what it is....

Hahaha only in a "Winter Wonderland" is where Christmas Eve actually looks like that, when in reality it just feels bit more like this

There's the last minute Christmas wrapping

Or if you're like me, it's more like last minute Christmas shopping that you forgot to do.

Speaking of Christmas shopping, you'll probably have to stop by the grocery store as well for those ingredients you need for tomorrow.

And there's cleaning, don't forget to clean, especially if there's company coming over!

Finally the day is coming to an end though as you snuggle up in your pj's and enjoy yourself.

Christmas Day

If you're like me and you happen to sleep next to the living room and have to pass it to go to the restroom in the morning. There is nothing worse than having to go to the restroom early in the morning on Christmas day. It means I have to run to the restroom with my eyes closed so the surprise of what I got for Christmas from Santa isn't ruined.

See in my house you have to wait for everyone else to wake up before we can start Christmas, so I spend most of Christmas morning in my bed like this after my early morning bathroom run.

Finally though everyone is awake and that means yummy breakfast and presents time!!!

After that is over it is time for cleaning again, because apparently yesterday wasn't enough.

Also there's cooking to be done.

Finally the family is here though. Prepare for the hugs!

It's basically guaranteed now that at one point someone is going to cry at least once, but no one knows who or why but it's just going to happen. It's not Christmas until someone cries.

Finally dinner comes around and by now you've realized how crazy everyone in your family is.

But still it's Christmas and you're proud to be a part of this group of weirdos,which also means that you are one as well!

7 Reasons It's Totally OK That I'm 23 And Have ALWAYS Been Single On Valentine's Day

Believe it or not, being single on Valentine's Day isn't a TOTAL bummer.

I've been here for almost 23 years and I have yet to celebrate Valentine's Day with a significant other, or even a date, for that matter. Sometimes it bums me out, but then I realize all the things that are fantastic about this.

1. Valentine's Day is largely just a commercial holiday.

It is designed to sell cards, chocolate, flowers, and other Valentine's-esque gifts. Seriously, there is research that shows how much money is shelled out on these gifts, and it's insane how much more money is charged for things like flowers during these types of holidays.

2. Valentine's Day should not be the ONLY day you show love to those you care about.

By all means, buy the gushy thing you know your significant other, family member or friend might want, and tell them you love them. If, however, this is the only time you ever show anyone you care, and it's because you're expected to on the 14th of February, that's really sad.

3. I already have enough stuffed animals.

I would appreciate anything someone gave me because they were thinking of me, no doubt, but I'd rather it be full of thought than a cheesy stuffed animal I have no room for in my house (unless it's a stuffed elephant because my future SO would know I love elephants). Write me a letter, make me my favorite dinner, watch my favorite movie with me, or if you want to spoil me, do that-just no giant teddy bear just because it was in the Valentine's Day section of the CVS down the street.

4. Restaurants/movie theaters/etc. are TOO CROWDED on Valentine's Day.

Unless you make a reservation in advance, we will wait FOREVER. Anyone that knows me knows I get cranky when I'm hungry or forced into a crowd of people. Not a great date night.

5. Day-after chocolate.

I like to take advantage of the fact that stores buy WAY too much-themed merchandise for holidays, and therefore when they inevitably have this surplus, they mark it down the day after. So, when the grocery stores say 50% off for Russell Stover, this girl's going IN, with no one to judge her for buying it.

6. No disappointments.

Okay, I know this one looks bad at first glance. Hear me out:

I put thought into gifts. Some presents I've given may not have been right on the money for some people, but you can at least tell I tried to put something together. I like to get a few things that the person I'm buying or crafting a gift for likes, and put a sentimental spin on it.

Even though there have been times that I cannot stand the things that my significant other liked, I still made an attempt to get something HE liked, not something that only I liked and wanted him to like. I've heard of people who put no thought into something for someone else, or perhaps worse, they'll buy something they enjoy for their boyfriend or girlfriend.

For instance, some people buy non-sports-fans season tickets to their own favorite team's games, because they enjoy going and the "We can go together!" idea is their defense. Yes, Chad, we can go to a game together, because I know you enjoy it, but not the WHOLE SEASON.

7. Excuse to save money.

Not that I really mind spoiling my boyfriends when I have them or spotting them sometimes for date nights, but ya girl is a bargain hunter and the best way to save money for your date on Valentine's Day is to not have one. Sure, it'd be nice to have someone to cuddle up with and be mushy with, but if I don't have that person, I can use the money I saved on a present for that nonexistent mister to buy myself something nice. Or spend some of it on the marked-down candy.

I'm sure all of this sounds cynical, and perhaps it is, but I'm of the opinion that Valentine's Day, while adorably romantic, is just another day. If you care about someone, the love you're showing should be thoughtful and year-round, not just one day in February.
