My Favorite Things About The Christmas Season (As Told By The PEANUTS Characters)

The Christmas Season- as told by Charlie Brown and friends.

One of the most beloved animated Christmas movies is A Charlie Brown Christmas. Why so, you ask? Perhaps it is the innocence of the characters, perhaps it is the humor, or perhaps it is the universality of Charlie Brown's search for the meaning of Christmas. For me and my family however, it is the perfect representation of all the joy to be had during Advent and the start of the Christmas season! See proof below.

1. Ice Skating

Come on. How Christmas-y is that?! You can't get more "winter fun" than ice skating. Even if you're mostly terrible at it. And fall down a lot. And usually freeze both your fingers and toes off. IT CAN STILL BE FUN OKAY.

2. Snowball Fights

So. Much. Fun. I mean, you just grab a friend or two or twelve, throw on your coats and run outside, and *BAM* at least an hour or two of screaming and running around and having fun like little kids in the snow. Classic!!

3. Building A Snowman

Always fun to do, and it doesn't matter what it ends up looking like because it's snow and you can always change whatever you want about it! Pro tip: ACCESSORIZE. ACCESSORIZE. ACCESSORIZE.

4. Decking The Halls

So Much cheer!! So many possibilities!! SO MANY LIGHTS!! It brings the Christmas mood up from like a 5 to probably a 25. Out of 20.

5. Trimming The Tree

A classic, sacred tradition that everyone has a special role in. Glass ornaments at the top to catch the light, and the blinking-angel tree-topper always makes an appearance (however temporary) until Dad gets sick of the annoying flickering. O, Christmas Tree, O Christmas Tree!!

6. Seeing Lights Displays

Some people truly know how to get into the Christmas spirit with their decorations. All together now- "OOOOooohhh!! AAAaaaaahhhh!!"

7. Christmas Pageants

Especially the pageants with the preschoolers and kindergartners. They're just TOO PRECIOUS with the little shepherds and tiny Kings, and that sweet itsy-bitsy little Mary and Joseph?? Ugh. #blessed.

8. Christmas Parties!!!

Not only is there usually incredible food and special holiday sweets that are only out once a year (a la cousin Colleen's Christmas Eve chocolate peanut butter balls), but the music! Dancing! Friends! The holiday cheer never stops.

9. Sending Christmas Cards

With so many colorful and creative stamps and cards and Pinterest ideas available at the holidays, it's the perfect time to celebrate and recognize every possible holiday with all your friends. And we all love getting mail just as much as Charlie Brown does!

10. Singing Christmas Carols

It doesn't matter if you can't hold a tune with a handle. You're singing and rejoicing about the happiest day on earth! And everyone knows the words! Until you get to the second verse... and then it all *snowballs* downhill from there.

and finally,

11. Spending Time With Friends And Family

It's the best time of the year, after all!

So hang up your stockings and set out the milk and cookies. A Merry Christmas to all, and to all a good night!

119 People Reveal How The Pandemic Has Affected Their Love Lives, And Honestly... Relatable

"I haven't been able to get out of the 'talking phase' with anyone."

The reality is, there's no part of life the pandemic hasn't affected. Whether it's your work life, your home life, your social life, or your love life, coronavirus (COVID-19) is wreaking havoc on just about everything — not to mention people's health.

When it comes to romance, in particular, people are all handling things differently and there's no "right way" of making it through, regardless of your relationship status (single, taken, married, divorced, you name it). So, some of Swoon's creators sought out to hear from various individuals on how exactly their love lives have been affected since quarantine began.

We have all been there. Mindlessly scrolling through social media and then we see that post. We see someone we once saw a future with creating it with someone else. However this time it was really different. A lot of times when we say we are happy for someone we don't really mean it.

Affirmations affirm beliefs that we are in need of strengthening. They help up to focus on goals that we are striving for or on a powerful part of ourselves that we need a little reminder is within us.

They specifically focus on positive outcomes or belief systems that we're working to solidify, rather than solely focusing action on eradicating something "bad" or "wrong" from your life.

Nordstrom's Biggest Sale Has The Most Legendary Deals On Luxury Beauty Brands We've Ever Seen

Counting down the days to the Chanel box set gracing my front door.

I oftentimes (excessively) use the excuse of my job as a writer to justify my excessive spending habits.

I needed the new Huda Beauty palette before anyone else in the name of journalistic integrity. It was my job to test out the new Francis Kurkdjian fragrance to make sure I could tell people whether or not it was truly worth the splurge (it was).

Some people are so good at downplaying their sadness that even they don't realize how much they do it. When you ask them how they are they will always say that they are good, even when they aren't. They exhaust themselves by plastering an energetic and carefree persona in the spaces that you watch them in because at least to you they can control how they appear. They can pretend to be the happy person they want to be when everyone is telling them how funny and bubbly they are all the time.

Mental health is not an easy endeavor. It's not a fad. It's not a bandwagon that you can hop on and off of whenever you want to. Your yearly dose of sadness is not depression. I'm not here to define what depression — or anxiety, or any other type of mental health issue looks like — but I will tell you what it's not.

I sometimes look back at the days when I had anorexia and think to myself what would have happened if I had taken another bite? Nowadays, I spend days dreading over my figure and wondering if the old sundresses and outfits even fit. I tell myself that they do, but I feel like reality holds a different truth.
