To All Of The Grinches Out There, Stop Ruining My Christmas Fun

The best way to spread Christmas cheer is singing loud for all to hear.


It's November and that means it's CHRISTMAS SEASON. Listen, I'm not just jumping on some kind of bandwagon when I say I love Christmas- I LOVE Christmas. And I believe we should be able to deck those halls and kiss under mistletoe all year round without all this negativity.

Now I get it, "What about Thanksgiving? Let the turkey have its day!" blah, blah, blah. No one said anything about skipping the glorious Turkey Day, in fact, Thanksgiving is like a warmup for Christmas with all the family-time and the huge meals so trust me, no one forgets her. Plus, if you start rockin' around the Christmas tree now, the season can last so. much. longer.

I don't know about you, but spooky season FLEW by. I felt like I hardly had time to enjoy it because of midterms and everything else going on. But, as soon as November 1st hits, you had better believe I am ready to soak up as much Christmas spirit as I can in less than 2 months. I have all of November and by the time semester break rolls around, I am full-blown holly jolly.

Even if you don't like the winter season surrounding Christmas (who doesn't like sweaters, hot chocolate, and snuggles) there are still so many other aspects to enjoy. Spending time with friends and family, the beautiful decorations (whether they be cold and icy or warm with reds and green), giving gifts, movies, the religious side of the holiday, there is something for everyone to enjoy.

Here's the thing, I won't bash you for waiting to celebrate until after Thanksgiving if you won't bash me for starting now. The people who throw the holiday in everyone's faces can be annoying (I'm here for it though) so I promise I'll try not to be that person. Just let people have their fun and do whatever makes them happy. If that means breaking out the flannel sheets the day after Halloween then that's what it means. If that means waiting until December 23rd to buy a tree then that's what that means. If that means watching Elf on repeat for 25 days then that is what it means and no one can do a thing about it.

There's only room for one grinch in this world so let me have my fun and go wait for your turkey to cook.

Christmas traditions

The Holidays are a time for being with friends and family and celebrating the birth of Christ, but sometimes we forget to acknowledge the other religions and what they celebrate.

In no particular order, I would like to demonstrate a little culture about the ways Christmas is celebrated or is not celebrated throughout five different religions.
