The Five Reasons I LOVE Christmas

My favorite holiday

The Five Reasons I LOVE Christmas

Christmas is by far my favorite holiday. It caps off my favorite succession of months that bring about some of the best memories I ever had. My family has always been a big Christmas family and I would not want it any other way. I decided, in a mildly cliche yet festive spirit, I would write the five things that really make the Christmas season special to me.

1. Warm Drinks

I love the assortment of warm, flavorful drinks that come along with Christmas. Always served in my favorite assortment of gaudy Christmas mugs is a cup full of cocoa, cider or seasonal coffees and teas. It evokes a really cozy and happy feeling and I really love how just a drink can put me in such a good mood.

2. Sweaters

What is Christmas without sweaters? Ugly sweaters aside, nothing is more lovely than wearing a muted red sweater and jeans, sitting next to your Christmas tree and enjoying the holiday season. There is always an assortment of Christmas and winter themed sweaters and I love how comfortable and chic they look, especially for the Christmas season.

3. Dim Lighting

Nothing is more invited than getting rid of that overhead, fluorescent lighting and substituting them for some string lights that bring the mood to the season. Save money on your electricity bill and enjoy reading some Robert Frost with only some string lights to brighten your way.

4. Reflection

One of the more figurative things I enjoy about the Christmas season is the time of reflection it brings. With the year closing in at this time, people take time to look back on the past year and realize how much they've grown and experienced. I've always felt that the act of gift giving at this time allows for us to reflect on those around us more appropriately and with a tangible symbol to remind us of them. This is by far one of the more poignant aspects of the season for me.

5. Music

I love Christmas music. I love that even though it all fits under one sort of niche, how each aspect of musical diversity can add to the repertoire of Christmas music. I love how you can feel subtle and subdued through Christmas music, but also find some that makes you want to get rowdy and dance. There is nothing that gets me in the Christmas mood like music and I hope that never changes.

6 Things Owning A Cat Has Taught Me
Liz Abere

Owning a pet can get difficult and expensive. Sometimes, their vet bills cost hundreds of dollars just for one visit. On top of that, pets also need food, a wee wee pad for a dog, a litter box with litter for a cat, toys, and treats. Besides having to spend hundreds of dollars on them, they provide a great companion and are almost always there when you need to talk to someone. For the past six years, I have been the proud owner of my purebred Bengal cat named Spock. Although he's only seven years and four months old, he's taught me so much. Here's a few of the things that he has taught me.

You're Your Own Best Friend

Kinder Self - Eyes

It's fun to see all of the selfies on social media, they are everywhere. I see pictures with pouty lips, duck lips and pucker lips. I see smokey eyes, huge fake lashes and nicely done nose jobs, boob jobs and butt lifts. Women working out in spandex, tiny tops and flip flops. I see tight abs and firm butts, manicured nails and toes, up dos and flowing hair. "Wow", I think to myself," I could apply tons of make-up, spend an hour on my hair, pose all day and not look like that. Maybe I need a longer stick!"
