Disney World is my second home, my motherland, the best place in the universe. My first visit was when I was six months old, I worked there for two years, and Christmas is my favorite season. So, I'm here to tell you about the best Christmas offerings at Walt Disney World that doesn't involve getting ripped off at Mickey's Very Merry Christmas Party.

1. Frozen Sing-Along Celebration: Holiday Finale

My all-time favorite show at WDW is the Frozen Singalong Celebration. Sing-along to songs from Frozen with your favorite characters from Frozen with hilarious jokes and laughs for the entire family. (Even for Dad.) Ever since the release of Olaf's Frozen Adventure they created a special finale of the show that incorporates the new holiday songs. Let me tell you, I cry every time. It's a must do and doesn't require a separate ticket from general admission.

2. Disney Springs Christmas Tree Trail

For those who don't want to pay for park admission, but want a quick Disney fix, Disney Springs now has a Christmas Tree Trail with a bunch of different trees decorated and themed like different Disney movies or rides. If you stick around long enough, it might even snow in the 100-degree heat!

3. Gingerbread Houses

If you walked the Christmas Tree Trail and still aren't feeling in the Christmas spirit, take a bus to different resorts and enjoy the giant gingerbread houses! At the Grand Floridian Hotel, they even sell gingerbread to eat inside the house! There are several other gingerbread sculptures around property at the Boardwalk Resort, the Contemporary Resort, and at the Beach Club Resort!

4. Candlelight Processional

At Epcot every year they have a chorus and orchestra that will sing classic Christmas songs accompanied by a special celebrity speaker that retell the story of Christmas. Even if you aren't religious, like me, it's still amazing to hear the beautiful songs being sung and watching speakers such as Neil Patrick Harris, Jodi Benson, John Stamos, Whoopi Goldberg, Auli'i Carvalho, Alfonso Ribeiro, and more.

5. Epcot International Festival of Holidays

Travel around the world (Epcot) and learn about how each country and culture uniquely celebrates Christmas. You can also visit kiosks around World Showcase and enjoy samples of seasonal cuisines from around the world. Finish off the night with a special IllumiNations: Reflections of Earth with a special Christmas finale!

6. Jingle Bell, Jingle BAM!

Until Hollywood Studios finally opens Star Wars: Galaxy's Edge there is really no point and visiting the theme park with two rides open. Except during the holiday season when each night they transform the old façade of the Great Movie Ride with projections and lasers and even snow during a wonderful nighttime spectacular. If you make your way to Sunset Boulevard you can even watch the Hollywood Tower of Terror light up with festive projections and it'll even snow!

7. Frozen Holiday Wish

My top favorite thing to see during the holidays is the Cinderella Castle all lit up with lights that make it look like ice and snow. It's a tradition for me to watch Elsa light up the castle using her icy magic every night. It's the most magical experience I love to watch every holiday season. Catch me camping out in front of the castle stage every night when I'm done with my exams!

8. Chrsitmas Decor

Each park and even some hotels have their own unique holiday decorations. One of the biggest indicators that the holiday season is here is when all the decorations go up around the Magic Kingdom right after Halloween. The best way to get in the Christmas mood is to sit on Main Street U.S.A., listen to the Christmas music playing at dusk and watch the decorations light up while enjoying a gingerbread man cookie from the Main Street Confectionary.

9. Mickey's Once Upon a Christmastime Parade

Now I know this parade only happens during Mickey's Very Merry Christmas Party but if you are able to make it to the Magic Kingdom from December 23rd to December 31st, they will be running performances twice a day! So if you have the guts and patience to brave the holiday crowds at the busiest place on earth, camp out for a parade spot all day and enjoy the Christmas parade!

10. Mickey's Most Merriest Celebration

Same thing for Mickey's Once Upon a Christmastime Parade, applies for Mickey's Most Merriest Celebration. If you will be at Magic Kingdom from December 23rd to December 31st, be sure to camp out for a viewing spot to watch the most festive Christmas show on property! This show is a fairly new show where you can watch all your favorite Disney characters gather their friends for a wonderful celebration while singing along to Christmas hits.

Top 50 Things You'll Hear A Southern Say

Y'all.

views

For those of you who may need a little help understanding the slang of a southern, I made a list of the top 50 phrases and sayings, along with their translations.

1. Bless your heart.

My favorite saying. It is an empathetic phrase that is usually uttered when the speaker believes the recipient to be sweet, but misguided or stupid. It can also be used if the speaker believes the recipient needs to grow up and deal with it, when the speaker says it in a sarcastic tone.

2. Barking up the wrong tree.

Means being misguided or mistaken.

3. Aren't you precious?

Mostly this saying is used in a sarcastic tone in response to someone being offensive.

4. Britches.

Pants or underpants.

An example would be, "Your britches are too short, you can't wear those".

5. Coke.

Regardless if it's Dr. Pepper, Coca-Cola, or another carbonated beverage, it's called Coke here in the South.

6. Fixin' to.

Simply means that you are about to do something.

7. Get the short end of the stick.

This phrase means that you basically got an unfair deal or cheated out of something.

8. Give Me Some Sugar.

Simply means give me a kiss.

9. Hissy Fit.

A hissy fit is a grown-up version of a temper tantrum that is as bad as one that a toddler would throw.

10. Hold Your Horses.

Be patient.

11. Holler.

When you say "holler" you are basically letting the other person know something.

Example: Holler at me when you are ready to get something to eat.

12. If the creek don't rise.

13. You're as slow as molasses in the wintertime.

This phrase means that you are being EXTRA slow.

14. Muddin'.

Off-road four-wheeler riding with the intentions of getting mud everywhere and possibly losing control.

A phrase that can be used instead of saying "God bless you" when you sneeze.

16. There's Not A Pot Too Crooked That A Lid Won't Fit.

There is someone for everyone.

17. Pitcher.

We mostly mean a plastic container that holds sweet tea, not the position of a guy on the baseball team.

18. Reckon.

When you say "I reckon", you believe that something is true.

19. Hoot With The Owls, Soar With The Eagles.

This simple phrase means that if you are going to stay up all night, you should be able to get early in the morning.

20. Too Big For Your Britches.

Simply means that you take yourself too seriously.

21. Stompin' Grounds.

Your hometown or where you grew up.

Back in the day could be a month ago, a year ago, or 20 years ago.

If you are from the South, you have probably been asked this more than once, especially when you left a door open.

This southern heat is nothing to play with. It simply means to keep the door closed so the air (or heat if its winter) stays inside.

29. You Are Going To Make Me Lose My Religion.

When you say this phrase to someone, it more than likely means that person has done something to irritate you or made you mad. Thank goodness Jesus saves.

I'm Keeping My Christmas Tree Up All Winter And There's Nothing You Can Do About It

It's the WINTER Season... ;-)

214
views

I think that my tree would not be considered Christmas-y if the ornaments are taken off and the lights are kept on. I think to just looks wintry. I am also keeping up decorations that say "let it snow", and I am keeping up any snowman without holly berries or presents in their hands.

The tree looks wintry in my opinion. It looks pretty with the lights and brings the room together. It gives off a warm ambiance, unlike that of fluorescent lighting.

I've taken all ornaments off except for gold snowflakes and I've left the silver tinsel garland on as well as the lights. It looks wintry to me still. I will probably be taking the whole tree down by the end of this month to prepare for Valentine's Day decorating. (Yes, I pretty much decorate my apartment for every holiday—sue me).

There's nothing like coming downstairs and seeing those lights sparkling.

Or coming inside from a dreary, rainy day outside and seeing them light up the room in a calm, warm, and comforting glow.

Or having a bad day, looking up, and seeing them shine.

It sort of makes me upset when I come downstairs and see that someone has unplugged them, to be honest.

I guess they don't see it as I do.

Pretty, twinkling lights forever!
