It's The Most Wonderful Time Of The Year

It's The Most Wonderful Time Of The Year

I mean who doesn't love Santa?!


I asked a few of my friends this question.."what does Christmas mean to you?" As you can all imagine they all said pretty much the same things like Family and presents! I am going to share with you all some of their responses!

Ryan says "Um, probably spending time with family and friends, being in a better mood, and just trying to be better to people in general."

Ashley says: "Christmas used to mean opening up presents from Santa and then going over to my uncles house and playing with my little cousins but growing up my perspective has changed and now it means the one time of year my family can ALL get together and actually make memories TOGETHER! I love the fact that now I get to play the roll of "Santa" and give to others, I love making people happy that Alone is such a rewarding feeling. It's the best present of all and that's what Christmas means to me

Courtney says "It means that you get to spend time with family and it's not all about getting presents.. it's just the amazing time you get to spend with your family."

Isabella says: "For me, Christmas means having all of my family over for dinner, playing games and messing with each other in the warmth of someone's home. I love to have my family over for dinner and to see them all. During the year you don't see everyone very often, but to have my whole family in one place for the holiday is something very special to me. Everyone makes time in their day to come celebrate, and it's fantastic."

Tyler says: "Christmas has always meant a lot. Always been my favorite holiday and time of year. As a kid I loved waking up on Christmas to seeing all the presents Santa brought, and then going to my grandmothers for dinner and time with the family. Then as I got older, Christmas meant a little more. Now all I look forward to is being around my family and good friends. And having a boyfriend and a while separate family to spend it with. Made me realize Christmas means a little more than just getting presents and that it's all about being grateful for your family and all that you have along with it"

As you can see, they basically all said family time! I mean i don't blame them i love family time!

I asked myself the same question i asked all of them, and here is what i have to say that it means to me! Christmas means to me waking up early, opening up gifts, having a homemade big breakfast that my dad cooks! It also means to me getting to see my entire family in the span of two days, i adore family time, i love watching my nieces and nephews open up all their gifts that santa got for them!

Christmas is the most wonderful time of the year i dont care what anyone says!

'That 70's Show' Christmas Episodes, Ranked

Holiday classics ranked for your bingewatch convenience.


Last week, I ranked The Office's Christmas episodes, so this week I'm going to rank the episodes from That 70's Show, my favorite show as a teenager. Still with the highest number being the best because of how this website works.

1. Winter (Season 7)

The show peaked in seasons 5 & 6, so while this episode has some great moments, it just doesn't measure up to the others on this list. Not to mention the Jackie & Hyde drama was a real downer.

2. The Best Christmas Ever (Season 1)

The first season's Christmas episode also has some classic moments, but the comedy just wasn't as strong in the earlier seasons.

3. Hyde's Christmas Rager (Season 3)

The Christmas party at Hyde's place was great, however, the Jackie & Donna plot feels a little lacking compared to some of the other Christmas episode plots.

4. An Eric Foreman Christmas (Season 4)

I tend to skip season 4 because Eric and Donna's breakup was hard on me, but this is a really good Christmas episode. Not to mention, Kelso's Christmas special is everything.

5. Christmas (Season 6)

This episode has everything. Red as Santa, Jackie and Hyde being adorable, the school dance, Eric finally being popular, Donna's bacon, and Fez with the bullies. And the TNT scene. Everything a Christmas special should be.

So there you go. Enjoy your holiday bingewatch!

Christmas Of Remembrance Series: My Last Letter

Christmas time is not about the gifts... It is about something far, far more special.


Dear Reader,

Thank you for your time.

This is a series that I have dedicated to those I have loved and lost. It was merely a thought, then an idea, and now a realized creation. Christmas time… all winter really is a hard time for me. It holds this duality in my life of being both my favorite and also my least favorite and difficult time of year. It has been that way for years now.

In a way, this series aids my closure and healing further, and it allows me to tell my story in a way that, to me, is less scary (one of the many great facets of this platform). It was never my intention to write this in order to reach people, or encourage people, or serve as an inspiration to anyone. This was for me and only me. No one else. But, if these pieces of writing do impact someone, somewhere, or make them feel encouraged or inspired in some way or another, or just simply make them feel, then I hope you have enjoyed them. If I can make someone feel, then I guess I have done my job.

The life of an artist is often an uncertain one. The life of a human is a trying one. But life is a journey, and all journeys have their trials. Their tests. Their triumphs and rewards. And they all have their losses. What matters most is what you make of all of it. What lessons you learn. What changes you make. What life you create for yourself. What art you create because of it all. It can be very, very hard. But it can all be glorious at the same time.

At the heart of this series, my words, there is this deep and valuable belief of mine: Christmas (or the Winter Holiday that you may celebrate) is so much more about presents and cooking and shopping and all that other bullshit… it is about family.

The family that is related by blood. The family that surrounds your heart. Your Mom. Your brother. Your dearest friends. The bonds that make life valuable. Worth living. These bonds are soulful bonds, ones that are far more special than any mere trivial object. So… be with them. Forgive. Forget. Heal. Mend what is broken. Reassemble what has been shattered. And stop worrying so much. Laugh together. Cry together. Heal on another. Heal together. And may your new days be better, brighter, and full of love.

Happy Holidays.


A song for you...
