Christmas Please Wait For Your Turn

Merry Christ..oh wait Happy Thanksgiving !


Ever since we entered the month of November all of a sudden it is Christmas season, but whatever happened to Thanksgiving?

I get it, Christmas is coming up soon and preparing for it is even more exciting as we all get into the Christmas spirit. Houses will be decorated with lights and Christmas decorations, stores will be having special sales for families to begin their shopping, Christmas tree lightings, and so much more (trust me I am excited myself). But guess what, we are in November and Thanksgiving has not even happened yet. Now it is not a bad thing to start the Christmas celebration early, but Thanksgiving is a very important holiday and not one to brush aside.

Thanksgiving, as we all know, is the day where we give thanks for having such a wonderful support system, being alive and healthy, and just thankful for everything in that has been placed upon you in your life. Of course, for others, it might not be a favored holiday or simply not something they celebrate. For those who do, please acknowledge that Christmas season will come just wait!

"But Thanksgiving is only food while Christmas is about family, friends, presents, and Christmas trees!"

Yes, of course, Christmas is beautiful to celebrate and exciting when you wake up in the morning to find out what your parents, significant other, or friend got you as a present. Maybe it is better than Thanksgiving, but what is the true meaning of Christmas? Personally, the holidays, in general, is about being with family and cherishing the moments spent with them. I used to care about the material things when Christmas came around because I wanted to have that new doll before anyone else had it or that new game that came out. My perspective on holidays has changed because what matters the most is embracing the memories and moments with your loved ones.

That is what Thanksgiving is about, being grateful and feeling blessed that on this day you are with your families, there is food on the table, you are fully clothed, you get to go home to a nice warm bed, and so much more. We always forget that sometimes it is not just the big gestures we do for one another, the little things count as well. Enjoy the food, your cousins, the gossip you'll hear from aunts and uncles, parents, and yourself. Thanksgiving is a blessed holiday to celebrate before entering Christmas.

So Christmas...WAIT FOR YOUR TURN.

Pop Culture Needs More Plus Size Protagonists

When almost 70% of American women are a size 14 or bigger, movies like Dumplin' are ridiculously important, while movies like I Feel Pretty just feel ridiculous.

The Birthplace of Basketball

The NBA Playoffs are here. It’s kind of funny that my history kind of started out in the same place that basketball’s did too.


Basketball was originally created by James Naismith, a Presbyterian minister who taught P.E. at YMCA in Springfield, Massachusetts. He invented the new game to keep the young men occupied inside during the winter. Borrowing ideas from rugby and a game he used to play as a boy, “duck on the rock”, he thought of nailing up boxes to throw a ball into. He couldn’t find boxes so he used peach baskets instead. The rest of the rules he made up in about an hour.

I Met You At The Wrong Time

At least, that's what I keep telling myself.


I met you when I was in middle school and I thought boys still had cooties. I wore flared jeans, Aeropostale shirts, and had the dorkiest braces ever. I cared about what other people thought of me, and I definitely cared a lot about what you thought, too. You were older, and your friends made fun of me when I talked to you. I pretended it didn’t bother me, but it did. I sat two rows in front of you in class, and constantly tried to think of reasons to talk to you. Your hair was a curly mess. It still is. You graduated from middle school a year before me, and I missed you. I don’t think you even knew my name.
