I Enjoy Thanksgiving But I'm Ready For The Christmas Season

Honestly I've been celebrating since November 1st.

I Enjoy Thanksgiving But I'm Ready For The Christmas Season

Let's be real the last three months of the year is the time of year that I look forward to every year. It's not just because my birthday starts it off but also because of the cooler weather coming in. This time of year is the fun holiday season and I don't know about most people but I love when my whole family is able to come together to eat good food and spend time with each other since we all live far away.

Thanksgiving is a great holiday and I love the food that my family prepares for it. Everyone has an assigned dish to make, usually my mom does the bulk of it, but we all try and help when we can. Thanksgiving morning we have the Macy's day parade on even though we do not really watch it, while my dad is getting the turkey ready. By 11:00 am the kitchen is already smelling so good. Once the food is all ready we say the blessing and dive in to feast on the delish food that has been cooking all day.

God has given me so many blessings to be thankful for this year and I am always very grateful for everything that he has done for me. That is why I am so ready for the Christmas season to begin, even though I have been celebrating it early and my friends have been telling that it's too early I still sing Christmas songs anyway. Christmas is not only a special season because of all the loving hearts, giving spirits and joyful souls that people have during this time of year but, the main reason for the season is about Jesus Christ and celebrating his birth. God's greatest gift for us was his son and he did that out of love even when He knew what was going to come next.

My biggest wish for this Christmas season is that everyone would enjoy what they love doing which is giving gifts to those that they love, but to not let that consume what this time of year is all about. In Hebrews 12:28 it states " Therefore, since we are receiving a kingdom that cannot be shaken, let us be thankful, and so worship God acceptably with reverence and awe." I like this verse because we are all so unworthy of God's love, but he gives it to us anyway and he blesses us and we need to be thankful. Not just during the time that we are supposed to be but rather all year long. I hope that everyone has a happy Thanksgiving, eat all the turkey, Mac n cheese, green beans, mashed potatoes, cranberry jelly and whatever else you enjoy.

As the holiday season draws nearer, many of us find ourselves drawn to the same old Rankin-Bass Christmas specials and the perennial favorite, "A Charlie Brown Christmas." However, I would like to suggest an overlooked alternative, "Arthur's Perfect Christmas." It is a heartfelt, funny, and surprisingly inclusive Christmas special that deserves more recognition.

Reclaim Your Weekends From The 'Sunday Scaries' With 'Self-Love Sundays' Instead
Olivia DeLucia

Laid back and taking it easy — sometimes that is the motto we all need after a busy week. Sunday scaries? Yes, they are valid – but you know what else is? A Sunday full of self-love. A lazy Sunday spent doing what you feel needs to be done to ease into the next week. Self-Love Sundays are a guilty pleasure that isn't only essential for our mind, and body, but are also a surprisingly proactive way to devote the upcoming week with a clear mindset.

So, what is a more suitable way to dedicate your week's end than a beautifully, connected playlist to accompany your face masks and journaling? Cheers, to a Self-Love Sunday (and a playlist intertwined with it to match). (Please note: "Sunday Morning" isn't included in this list, due to the obvious, but feel free to blast it anyway, we know you want to).

The sun rose and peeked through the sheer curtains. Rose’s alarm shrieked. The loud bells caused her phone to jump on the side table. It was time for her to get ready for church. Blindly reaching for her phone, she shut the alarm off and pulled at the covers providing her a cocoon of warmth and tossed them to the side. She swept her bare feet across the bed to touch the cool wooden floor.

Rose softly tiptoed to the corner of the bedroom to grab her clothes dangling on the arm of the bedroom chair. Scooping all of the items of her chosen outfit, she headed to the bathroom hoping that she wouldn’t drop anything.

Round, piercing blue eyes stared back at her in the bathroom mirror. Rose fingered the wrinkles forming around her eyes. So many of them bore signs of laughter and smiling. Slowly dropping her hands, she couldn’t remember the last time she laughed in her home with Tom. Shaking her head as if to erase the negative thoughts, she reached for her makeup bag and went through her regular routine.

Applying her favorite deep rose lipstick, Rose headed downstairs to make her coffee and bagel to take with her to church. The smell of dark-roast coffee swirled in the air as Rose sliced her cinnamon raisin bagel. Hearing the Keurig sputter with the fresh brew, Rose found the interruption of the stillness comforting. The toaster signaled that her bagel was done with a soft pop. It had a delicious golden brown color. Placing the bagel on the counter, she generously spread honey nut flavored cream cheese across both halves. Gathering her bible, notebook, and pens from the side table on the porch she stuffed them into her purse. Purse hanging on her right shoulder she juggled her coffee and bagel in both of her hands as she headed to the garage.

This Holiday Season, Choose To Be Eco-friendly And Reduce Pollution

Many of us have old magazines lying around, fully read and not of much use anymore. However, we can use their bright colors and prints as a stylish and trendy wrapping paper!


It can be overwhelming to see the detrimental effects of climate change and pollution on the news, from animals dying and forest fires spreading, but there are smaller changes that we can all make to reduce our carbon footprint, and it begins with our gifting season.

On average, Americans throw 25% more trash between Thanksgiving and New Years, which translates to 25 million tons of garbage. That's 1 million extra tons per week.
