Discover why Christmas outshines Halloween in this insightful comparison. Explore the festive magic of Christmas vs. Halloween's spookiness.

Everyone is pumped for Halloween and I'm just like......Christmas, wya?

Let me first start off by saying that I was not allowed to celebrate Halloween growing up. And while at first I was salty about it, the older I got the more I realized how - wait for it - stupid Halloween is and that there are so much better holidays out there. Like Christmas.

The meaning of it has always stayed true to itself

A day that was originally intended to remember the dead has been changed to people thinking it's the devil's holiday, people dressing up in costumes as all sorts of things. While Christmas has always been about celebrating the birth of Jesus (even though yes I know it is not His actual birthday). While we get presents on Christmas, we all know that Jesus is the reason for the season.

The movies are better

'Elf' 'A Christmas Story' 'Dr. Suess' How the Grinch Stole Christmas,' need I say more?

The songs are better

Has anyone ever made a Halloween playlist? No. Christmas playlist? Do I even need to answer that?

No one is trying to scare you, they’re just trying to love you.

All I’m saying is, no one was walking around during Christmas time dressed as a clown

Weather is better.

There’s not a song about dreaming of a white Halloween is there? I think not.

Also, so many fun things you can do during Christmas time. Ice skating, snowboarding, skiing, making snow angels. Snowball fights, snow forts, Christmas is just the best.

Why wear a costume for one day (or at all) when you can deck yourself in holiday gear

Personally, I'm not a fan of dressing up for Halloween. But I am a fan of wearing Christmas clothes.

So while everyone is counting down the days until Halloween, and planning out their costumes, I will be counting down the time until it is socially acceptable to wear Christmas clothes.

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.

I can't say "thank you" enough to express how grateful I am for you coming into my life. You have made such a huge impact on my life. I would not be the person I am today without you and I know that you will keep inspiring me to become an even better version of myself.

Waitlisted for a College Class? Here's What to Do!

Dealing with the inevitable realities of college life.

Course registration at college can be a big hassle and is almost never talked about. Classes you want to take fill up before you get a chance to register. You might change your mind about a class you want to take and must struggle to find another class to fit in the same time period. You also have to make sure no classes clash by time. Like I said, it's a big hassle.

This semester, I was waitlisted for two classes. Most people in this situation, especially first years, freak out because they don't know what to do. Here is what you should do when this happens.
