5 Reasons The Holiday Season Is The Best Season

Cookies, warm fires, Christmas trees, and listening to holiday music- it really doesn't get much better.

5 Reasons The Holiday Season Is The Best Season
Sophia Otero

There are so many reasons why the holiday season is my favorite time of the year... hopefully, these 5 holiday activities will get you in the spirit too!

1. Nights spent watching holiday movies


The Grinch, Home Alone, A Christmas Story, Elf, and many more are just a few of the reasons why nights spent in watching movies with friends or family are the best kind of nights.

2. Decorating the house for the holidays


In my family cutting down the Christmas tree, setting up the Christmas village and decking out our house for the season is a tradition I look forward to each and every year

3. Spending time with friends and family


Every time Christmas rolls around I feel like I see a lot more of the people who mean the most to me. With so many different holiday activities going on its an excuse to see the people you love a whole lot more than the rest of the year. (It can also cause some family conflict but the drama adds to the Christmas spirit of it all)

4. Carrying out traditions 


My family loves to make gingerbread houses (although mine never turns out too great) and each year we do a big cookie swap. It is something we have been doing for several years and I look forward to it each time the season comes around.

5. Driving around and seeing all of the Christmas lights


One of my favorite holiday activities is driving through town and seeing the beautiful light displays that some homes have set up. It is so fun to look at and driving around listening to Christmas music puts me in the ultimate holiday spirit.

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.

There have been many lessons learned.

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.
