5 Reasons I'm Far From Sorry About Listening To Christmas Music Before December

Have you ever found a good Thanksgiving playlist, because I have not.

5 Reasons I'm Far From Sorry About Listening To Christmas Music Before December

As soon as October 31 has come and gone, I start playing my favorite Chrismas music. Listening to Christmas music right after Halloween gets such a bad rap. I'm a firm believer that that should not be the case. If someone wants to listen to Christmas music in November, let them, it's not doing you any harm.

I am not skipping Thanksgiving.

People like to claim that you don't care about Thanksgiving or that you are skipping over the holiday season. However, that simply isn't the case. Thanksgiving is by far my favorite holiday, so I guarantee you that I will never forget Thanksgiving or what the holiday stands for just because I enjoy listening to Christmas music a little earlier than most people.

There is not enough time to appreciate Christmas music in all its glory. 

The way I like to justify my love for Christmas music is simply the number of days until Christmas. Fifty-five days is simply not enough time to enjoy the Christmas music in all its glory. Christmas music really gets me in the holiday spirit, and frankly, the messages of giving and appreciating what you have are a lot more wholesome than the music I would be listening to instead.

There are no good Thanksgiving playlists.

Have you ever tried to find Thanksgiving music so that others won't judge you as harshly for listening to Christmas music? Because I'll save you the effort and let you in on a secret: Good Thanksgiving music really doesn't exist. Sure you'll find the occasional song about being thankful, but there is just no true substitute for the real thing.

Christmas music gets you in the Christmas mindset so much earlier.

Sometimes I feel like Christmas rolls around in the blink of an eye, leaving me no time to really prepare myself. When you start listing to Christmas music a little earlier, you are already thinking about the things you need to get done before one of the best holidays rolls around.

You can enjoy and celebrate more than one holiday at a time.

People not only like to think you are skipping Thanksgiving, they think you just don't care about any other holiday except Christmas. But let's be real, someone who loves Christmas enough to listen to the holiday music before everyone else clearly has a passion for the holiday season. Likely they care a whole lot more about the holidays than you give them credit for and are just as thankful for what they have been given in life as the next person when Thanksgiving actually rolls around.

This year when it's my turn to share what I'm thankful for, Christmas music will be on my list.

For as long as I can remember, I have been listening to The Beatles. Every year, my mom would appropriately blast “Birthday” on anyone’s birthday. I knew all of the words to “Back In The U.S.S.R” by the time I was 5 (Even though I had no idea what or where the U.S.S.R was). I grew up with John, Paul, George, and Ringo instead Justin, JC, Joey, Chris and Lance (I had to google N*SYNC to remember their names). The highlight of my short life was Paul McCartney in concert twice. I’m not someone to “fangirl” but those days I fangirled hard. The music of The Beatles has gotten me through everything. Their songs have brought me more joy, peace, and comfort. I can listen to them in any situation and find what I need. Here are the best lyrics from The Beatles for every and any occasion.

Small towns certainly have their pros and cons. Many people who grow up in small towns find themselves counting the days until they get to escape their roots and plant new ones in bigger, "better" places. And that's fine. I'd be lying if I said I hadn't thought those same thoughts before too. We all have, but they say it's important to remember where you came from. When I think about where I come from, I can't help having an overwhelming feeling of gratitude for my roots. Being from a small town has taught me so many important lessons that I will carry with me for the rest of my life.

I can't say "thank you" enough to express how grateful I am for you coming into my life. You have made such a huge impact on my life. I would not be the person I am today without you and I know that you will keep inspiring me to become an even better version of myself.

Waitlisted for a College Class? Here's What to Do!

Dealing with the inevitable realities of college life.

Course registration at college can be a big hassle and is almost never talked about. Classes you want to take fill up before you get a chance to register. You might change your mind about a class you want to take and must struggle to find another class to fit in the same time period. You also have to make sure no classes clash by time. Like I said, it's a big hassle.

This semester, I was waitlisted for two classes. Most people in this situation, especially first years, freak out because they don't know what to do. Here is what you should do when this happens.
