You Shouldn't Be Angry At My Early Showing Of Christmas Spirit

I will celebrate the holidays 24/7, 365 days a year if I did not feel like I was being judged.

You Shouldn't Be Angry At My Early Showing Of Christmas Spirit

Yes, I am one of those people that likes to get in the Christmas spirit a little early. Maybe even earlier than what most people are comfortable with, but why do people hate when others start spreading Christmas cheer early?

It is currently the beginning of November, which means that I am seeing many memes on Facebook that make fun of the people who listen to Christmas music before Thanksgiving. Well, guess what. I started listening to Christmas music before Halloween *gasp*

Christmas for me is not just a holiday, but a feeling. It instantly brings a calmness like no other with a touch of nostalgia, and that is the perfect feeling when you may be feeling stressed about school, work, or life. This only makes me more confused as to why some people are just flabbergasted at people who listen to Christmas music early. When Christmas cheer makes someone happy, who are you to judge them? You have no idea why this person needs a boost of happiness, and maybe you should try it, too.

I'm being a little harsh, I guess, but only because people need to be a lot less judgy. I'm not hurting you for listening to Christmas music early. Do us holiday cheerful people a favor, and let us live our winter wonderland dreams when it's 80 degrees outside.

Three years ago, I chose to attend college in Philadelphia, approximately 360 miles away from my small town in New Hampshire. I have learned many valuable lessons away from home, and have thoroughly enjoyed my time spent in Pennsylvania. One thing that my experience has taught me, however, is that it is absolutely impossible to beat a New England summer.

Yes, the math major is doing a math-related post. What are the odds? I'll have to calculate it later. Many people have probably learned about the Fibonacci sequence in their high school math classes. However, I thought I would just refresh everyone's memories and show how math can be beautiful and apply to physical things everywhere around us with stunning examples.

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.
