15 Dates That Will Put You In The Christmas Spirit

I know everyone's holiday spirit may be a little bit lower than in previous years because of the current circumstances. A global pandemic has definitely been able to affect a lot of things in our lives this year, but I think the one thing it can't take from us is our Christmas Spirit. Spending time with a significant other or loved one is one thing all of us can do that doesn't usually go against CDC guidelines. So with two weeks left till Christmas, here is a list of dates that will raise the Christmas spirit even during a global pandemic.

Hot Chocolate Christmas Movie Marathon 

Pick a few of your favorite christmas movies, get in your favorite pjs, make some hot cocoa, and get comfortable!

Personally, my favorite thing to do during the holiday season is drive around different neighborhoods and see all of the different Christmas lights.

Build a Home, Gingerbread Style

I think the best way to test if you work well with someone is by building a gingerbread house together.

An activity that can be done in a night, or over the span of a few weeks! Make a list of all the places that sell hot cocoa around you and get hunting! Go to each one and see who has the best hot cocoa!

Outdoor Ice Skating 

Outdoor ice skating just screams Christmas to me. It gives me that main character of a Hallmark movie kind of feeling. Bundle up in your favorite warm outfit, hold on to each other tight, and enjoy a night on the ice!

Christmas Karaoke Competition

The best way to get into the holiday spirit is listening to Christmas music. This just takes it up a notch. Whether you have a real microphone lying around or you just wanna use a television remote, it is a free and easy way to celebrate the holidays.

Make it out of paper, plastic, or quite literally anything you can find around the house.

DIY Stockings

A fun way to celebrate your Christmas season with your partner is to make stockings together! To make it more interesting, try making each other's stocking rather than your own! Test how well they know your taste!

Ugly Sweater Competition

Whether you find it, make it, or buy it, go find each other the ugliest Christmas sweater you can find. Whoever found the ugliest one wins!

Bake Christmas Cookies

I know a lot of us are gonna be sending Christmas cards because of our COVID holiday, so instead of just buying one from the store and signing it try making it a little bit more sentimental. Make them yourself and show your family how much you love them!

Decide on a New Christmas Tradition

Whether it be watching a specific movie, baking a certain item, or doing a specific thing, pick a tradition you will be happy to repeat every year!

How I Went From Pro-Life To Pro-Choice

"No one can make you do this."


I was raised in a strict, Irish-Catholic family. My parents and grandparents, even though I love them, instilled many beliefs in me that I came to disagree with as I grew older, things like "homosexuality is weird and wrong." I eventually rejected many of these ideas once I began growing into myself, but there was always one belief I let ring true well into my teen years: abortion is the murder of an unborn baby.

Trip to The City of Dreams

In a city that never sleeps, with constant bustling and hustling in the streets, my friend and I venture out to see what the "Big Apple" is all about.

Trip to The City of Dreams

There are so many ways for one to describe the beautiful city of New York. It is breathtaking, exciting and alive all in one. Taking a trip here was absolutely the adventure of a lifetime for me and I'm so grateful to have gotten to see all there is to do in the "City of Dreams" with one of my best friends.

God, What's Next?

What you're probably asking yourself during your season of waiting.

God, What's Next?

We spend most of our lives waiting for something. Maybe you're waiting for a job opportunity to open up, or for a professor to email you back because you procrastinated on your assignment, or maybe you're waiting for the next chapter in your life to start. Whatever the case maybe be for you I want to let you know that your season of waiting is not in vain! It may seem like it but your season of waiting is a crucial part in your walk with Christ. You may not have a walk with Christ and I encourage you to be open to starting a relationship with him but even your time of waiting isn't in vain. Waiting is a hard thing to do but it is so worth it in the end. The Bible even tells us this in Ecclesiastes.
