Christmas Season Is The Best Season, But Not Because Of The Gifts

When people think about Christmas and the Christmas season, the first thought that comes to the mind is the presents. While getting presents is cool and whatnot, there are so many other reasons as to why the Christmas season is the best.

When I think of Christmas, I think of decorations. Decorating is the absolute best part when it comes to Christmas. Everything just looks so beautiful and for the colder states, they get a true winter wonderland, which is something I hope to experience one day.

When I think of Christmas, I think of hot chocolate. The best Christmas date is getting a cup of hot chocolate and walking around town looking at Christmas lights and just spending quality time with one another. Hot chocolate is the drink of the Christmas season. Who needs eggnog when there is hot chocolate?

When I think of Christmas, I think of getting gifts for other people. I love buying people gifts but I am not a fan of receiving them, which I think is the case for most people. The important aspect to remember is that gifts don't need to have huge monetary value. The smallest, cheapest gifts can mean the most. The thought is what matters most.

When I think of Christmas, I think of family. Christmas is not complete without family. Being able to spend the holiday season with your family is the best thing in the world. Decorating the house, Christmas shopping, and family traditions. My family specifically has the tradition of making fudge every Christmas and I look forward to it every year. I finally got my mother's recipe and last year was the first year I made the fudge. I can't wait to make it again this year! Along with fudge, my mom gets us Christmas pajamas for us to open every Christmas Eve.

When I think of Christmas, I think of the Christmas movies. Christmas has some of the best seasonal movies ever. Especially the classics such as "Rudolph the Red Nose Reindeer" and "Santa Claus is Coming to Town". Of course, Christmas would not be complete until you watch "Elf" a few thousand times.

Christmas is also a part of the most beautiful season regarding the weather. Winter is such a beautiful season, and I am probably saying that because I live in Arizona and Arizona doesn't actually get a winter but either way, winter is beautiful here. One day I will be able to live in a state like Colorado and be able to experience a snowy Christmas.

During the Christmas season, even the people seem to be in a better mood. As someone who works at a coffee shop, I have tons of different conversations a day and I have noticed that the closer Christmas seems to be, the happier and more content people are. My theory about this is the fact that people get to spend time with family and friends.

The Christmas season is so much more than just gifts. It is a season of togetherness and family spirit. It is a season of beauty and exploration. It is a season that beats all others.

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.

There have been many lessons learned.

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.
