You Forgot About Thanksgiving

Where are the #thankful hashtags at??

You Forgot About Thanksgiving
Warner Brothers

It seems as though every year, when the days start getting shorter and the weather starts getting colder, Christmastime seems to be earlier. This year, there were Christmas-themed items out in stores in August. What??? In August, I'm relishing in the final days of pretty sunsets and dreaming about the beach.

Christmas, though? Not really.

Don't get me wrong, December 1st is the beginning of my time to shine. I love the winter (I'm crazy, sorry). I love fires and hot chocolate and sparkles. There's really nothing better.

But.... Thanksgiving, y'all.

People (for some ungodly reason) believe that Christmastime begins November 1st. The day after Halloween. I don't know about anyone else, but the day after Halloween I'm at Target and CVS, stocking up on leftover bags of 100+ pieces of candy. Not candy canes.

Where are the cornucopias and large turkeys at? Why aren't there gourds abound?! I WANT A GOURD, PEOPLE!!!

Here at Boston University, the dining halls are decked out in fall attire. I'm talking pumpkins and gourds everywhere, hay bales and fake autumnal leaves. That's the content I want to see in November. I don't need to walk into a store just to be hit with wreaths and snowmen. There's a time and place for just doesn't begin in November.

I was first exposed to this super early holiday nonsense by my roommates. They're great people, but their morals are all wrong. You see, they're the type of girls who get "spoopy" October 1st and are "ready to jingle their bells" November 1st. Me? I grew up normally. I understand that holidays have a time and place, or more specifically, a certain date.

The other day I walked into Target and their "Winter Wonderland" section was already stocked. I'm talking Christmas trees, lights, candy, ornaments... If it was related to Christmas, it was there.

Now, if you need to get back into the Spirit of the Fall, please redirect yourself to this fine piece of writing (by me). And then eat some sweet potatoes.

Because I'm still reminiscing about simpler times.


The Christmas season is coming to an end, but it's not too late to get some last-minute movies in! Unfortunately, this year didn't look like a typical Christmas. While we can't have any big Christmas parties or family gatherings, we can still celebrate at home! Christmas is the best time for nostalgia, and we could all use some warm and fuzzy feelings as we wrap up a tough year and enter a new one that hasn't been proven any calmer, either.

As a kid who grew up in the 2000s, I can think of some of my favorite staple Christmas movies. If you're looking for recommendations or just a walk down memory lane, check out the list below.

This series of 10 one-hour episodes tells the stories of eight girls who find themselves on a deserted island after their plane crashed while they are on their way to a resort. Unlike other survival shows, there's a bit more to the story than what first meets the eye. This show is unique in characters, storytelling methods, and plot.
