Christmas and ugly sweaters go hand-in-hand. But as the years go on, the funny ones become even better than the ugly ones. So I dug through and found some of the funniest ones from this Christmas season!

1. First Things First, I'm The Realest

I actually bought this one for myself this year, and when I saw it, I knew I had to have it. I've never seen this saying on a Christmas sweater, and I'll admit I could not stop laughing.

2. Twas The Nizzle Before Christmas and All Through The Hizzle

Seriously? You can't say this is absolutely hilarious. Let's be real, things like this are so much better than those ugly ones.

3. Home Malone

Like "Home Alone", get it? Another one I couldn't stop laughing at. I mean, seriously come on.

4. Santa, Do You Love Me?

Honestly, I wish I came up with this one; it's so good. Something so simple is seriously so funny.

5. One Bite Everybody Knows The Rules

Okay, this is a smaller group of people who will understand, but it's just as funny for those people. Barstool does one bite pizza reviews and if you watch them, you know.

6. Santa Works Hard, But Kris Jenner Works Harder

No truer or funnier statement has even been said. Kris Jenner is always hustling, she could teach Santa a thing or two.

7. Sleighin' It

Simple, but still so funny. We're always sleighing, but we are especially sleighing during the Christmas season.

8. Straight Outta North Pole

Seriously, if you aren't laughing, you are the biggest party pooper. This is definitely in my top five favorites.

9. Don't Stop Believin'

Journey is always giving us the best life lesson at literally all times. Never stop believing even in Santa.

10. Sleigh My Name, Sleigh My Name

When no one is around, you say "Santa I love you, too much?" How can you not love this, though?

I hope all these funny Christmas sweaters inspire you this season. Whether you recreate one, come up with your own, or just flat out buy one of these, I hope you have the funniest sweater at your Christmas party.

The True Meaning Of Christmas And Gift Giving

Preparing for Christmas should be more about preparing the heart and less about the gifts.

What many people think of when they think of Christmas preparations are the lists of presents they have to buy, the decorations they have to put up, the cookies they have to bake, and the cleaning they have to do. Although those things have become cultural staples for the holiday, they can sometimes conceal the real reason for the season. The Advent season is more about a preparation of the heart than a preparation of the hearth. In some ways, our society seems to be getting things backwards. This is a time of preparation for Christ's coming, but sometimes it seems like instead we are getting wrapped up in all the wrapping paper and consumed by the consumerism.

Why do we even give each other Christmas gifts in the first place? The custom of giving Christmas presents to one another comes from the example of the wise men, who traveled a long and arduous journey in order to present Christ with gifts to honor and adore him. Gift-giving is a symbol of love. During Christmas, it should remind us of the gift of Christ that we were given 2000 years ago and are continually given each and every day. These gifts symbolize our need to give the gift of Christ to others, as well as our need to receive him from others. However, the problem with giving gifts on Christmas is that the focus becomes on the gift itself, rather than on the gift we are celebrating–Jesus Christ. We get excited for Christmas, more often because of the excitement from opening gifts than from the joy that comes from celebrating the gift of our Savior.

The gift-giving custom has gotten way out of hand. Each year, the U.S. spends hundreds of billions of dollars on Christmas gifts, and I, too, am certainly a contributor to that number. We feel this need to participate in the practice because it is expected of us. Plus, it is difficult to deny the excitement of wanting to see others' desires fulfilled, while also satisfying your own. In the end, though, it is only surface-level. The happiness does not last. The presents are opened, and soon enough, the excitement and fulfillment fade, and next year, we only have new things we want in order to feel "fulfilled." The only thing that can truly fulfill us is Jesus Christ himself!

So what if instead of focusing on the presents we all focused on what will last, on something that will bring us all a deeper fulfillment? What if we all gave a gift to Jesus, instead, out of a grateful heart for the gift of himself that he has given us? What if we all committed to sacrifice a little bit more to give some time to others by volunteering more, perhaps at a soup kitchen or visiting the elderly? What if, instead of spending all that money on gifts for ourselves, we asked people to donate to a good cause to help someone who is in need? If we all decided to do this, just imagine how beautiful the world could be, filled with love that points toward everlasting joy! For Jesus says, "Whatever you did for one of the least of these brothers and sisters of mine, you did for me"(Matthew 25:40). In giving ourselves to others, we are letting Christ reach out to those around us and are celebrating his coming, not only 2000 years ago but also today, in our own lives and within our own hearts.

So next time someone starts to ask you about your Christmas preparations, think about your heart. Is your heart prepared? Is there room in your heart to give to others, not materially, but spiritually, in a way that will lead them to greater fulfillment? Step aside from the presents, and take the time to draw near to adore the true gift of Christmas in beautiful thanksgiving.

May your heart be filled with the joy that can only come from him this holiday season, and may your heart be prepared so as to be able to let him give himself to others through you.

Merry Christmas!

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

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

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!
