8 Reasons 'Christmas' DOES Start On November 1st
Start writing a post

I know people will fight me on this one, but I can promise you that if you run into me after Halloween, I am celebrating Christmas time already! Welcome to the Holiday Season, ladies and gentlemen!

1. It's the "Holiday" Season, and Christmas is a HOLIDAY!!

Merry HallowThanksMas, ladies and gentlemen... except now, Halloween is over and it's time to put up our Christmas trees and prepare for the Thanksgiving Feast!

2. The Lights!

There's nothing more beautiful than Christmas lights reflecting on the snow. Well, except for the fact that in Mississippi we don't really get that much snow, but that's beside the point! While your neighborhood Christmas Light show that's synced to music may not start until after Thanksgiving, it's never too early to start trimming your own house in preparation and joy!

3. And all the College Kids said, "THANKSGIVING BREAK!"

I can tell you the one thing on every college student's mind right now: Thanksgiving Break. We are dying for it to get here so we can have our well-deserved break. We want classes to be suspended for a while and to be home with our families. However, I can tell you that we REALLY want Thanksgiving Break because that means Winter/Christmas Break is right behind it!

4. It's time for Evergreens, y'all. 

Fall has come, and the leaves are falling. The leaves are beautiful, but I think we can all agree that there's nothing quite like the smell of Cedar filling our houses {and hearts.}

5. Christmas Music is now Socially Acceptable

There's nothing quite like a Christmas song to come on in your car on your way to school or work to warm your heart and brighten your mood. Christmas music is happy, and being happy is the most important thing in all of life.

6. Family Time

There's nothing like Christmas time to bring a family together! Matching pajamas, presents, and just being together make the Christmas season what it is. There's so many perks to Christmas and the entire holiday season, but being with your family definitely ranks pretty high on the list.

7. It's Jesus's Season

The real reason of the season of Christmas is often lost under Santa Claus and the Elves, but Christmas is really all about the birth of Jesus, and that's something we should celebrate year-round.

8. It's the MOST Wonderful Time of the Year!

There's no doubt about it. Christmas is simply the most wonderful time of the year. It's beautiful, bright, and happy. It gives people a sense of joy and hope. The movies are amazing, the music is delightful, and being with your family is just the most beautiful thing that this world can offer.

Christmas should be celebrated year-round (and maybe I listen to the music year round... don't judge,) and since it's officially November, we can do it without shame! Let your pride show Christmas lovers- and if you need any help decorating your tree, hit me up!

There is not a consistent standard for health education in the United States. There are a lot of variables that go into this — what state a student lives in, whether they go to a public or private school, and the district's funding and priorities. These variables can be argued for any subject, not just health class. But as we continue to grow as a society, hopefully bettering our education system along the way, it's crucial to consider this often-forgotten element of a child's schooling.

In March, the whole country shut down. School was online, extra-curriculars were canceled, and I found myself laying in bed all day every day. One day, as I was laying in bed contemplating my laziness, I decided that I wanted to do something to make myself more healthy. I was feeling so down on myself and my laziness so I decided to make a change.

Staying Active While You're Stuck Inside IS Possible, It Just Takes Some Small Steps

I know the last thing you want to think about right now is exercising, but it's time to put down the controller and put on your workout clothes.


As someone who has also been living on a bed since March, I can guarantee you that working out has been the last thing on my priority list. It's pretty far down there, along with my motivation and brain cells I used to use for work. However, I have made an effort in the past couple of weeks to move up exercising to at least number three on my priorities list.

I Got Clean At A Very Young Age, And It Honestly Saved My Life

At 18, the world looked so much different for me than it did for most other 18-year-olds that I knew.

Emmie Pombo

Going into rehab when I was 19 was hands down the hardest thing I've ever had to do in my life. My addiction started when I was around 17 and spiraled and spiraled out of control, as addictions always do. However, looking back, I'm so lucky my addiction started and ended when it did.

7 Things Your Partner Can Do To Support You When You Have PCOS

Don't be afraid to ask for help or comfort if you need it.


Polycystic ovarian syndrome (PCOS) may not be totally visible to the eye, which makes it a lot harder for your partner to understand what's going on with your body.

If you are in a relationship, it's important that you communicate your PCOS symptoms with your partner. I say "your" symptoms specifically because everyone's symptoms are different.

I have been listening to Taylor Swift since her debut album. I remember getting her first album on CD when I was little. She hasn't always been my favorite, but this summer I rediscovered my love for her songs. I also met people who had listened to her newer stuff but hadn't listened to her original stuff, a tragedy I know.

I thought I would give my personal rankings of every Taylor Swift album, including my favorite song from the album. I know mine are different than several others, and that's OK.
