Yes, I’m The Grinch, Yes, I Hate Christmas, And I'm OK With That

The Christmas season is right around the corner and I am already tired of it.


I hate Christmas. I hate Christmas. I hate Christmas.

The music, the decorations, the hype over it. I just don't get it nor do I want to get it.

I know that you're probably wondering if I have had a bad experience with Christmas and the truth is that I haven't. I just don't like it and this is why.

To start off, every store is PACKED. The lines are no joke, there are clothes scattered all around the store and don't even get me started on trying to find parking.

The second worst thing about it is that everyone pretends to be happy for one holiday.

Just be straight up and tell your aunt that she's rude instead of pretending to like her. Stop putting up a fake front for the holiday season. Everyone knows you guys just talk smack behind each other's back at every other holiday anyways.

Last but not least, the kids. Maybe it's because I didn't grow up believing in Santa Claus or whatever, but kids are so darn selfish about their presents! This is especially noticeable when their parents go above and beyond to give them everything and they don't even appreciate it. Don't get me wrong, I love seeing my nieces, nephews and little cousins open presents, but it just angers me when they're so ungrateful about it.

However, I will tell you the one good thing about Christmas.

The food. Especially in a Hispanic family household.

Tamales. Champurrado. Buñuelos. Atole. De todo. It's all worth it. It's my favorite part of the whole holiday because you get to spend hours in the kitchen with your favorite people as everyone tells stories from past Christmases. The food is made of love. Which is why I just shove my face with food so I don't have to deal with everyone's "Christmas cheer."

'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!

I'm Keeping My Christmas Tree Up All Winter And There's Nothing You Can Do About It

It's the WINTER Season... ;-)


I think that my tree would not be considered Christmas-y if the ornaments are taken off and the lights are kept on. I think to just looks wintry. I am also keeping up decorations that say "let it snow", and I am keeping up any snowman without holly berries or presents in their hands.

The tree looks wintry in my opinion. It looks pretty with the lights and brings the room together. It gives off a warm ambiance, unlike that of fluorescent lighting.

I've taken all ornaments off except for gold snowflakes and I've left the silver tinsel garland on as well as the lights. It looks wintry to me still. I will probably be taking the whole tree down by the end of this month to prepare for Valentine's Day decorating. (Yes, I pretty much decorate my apartment for every holiday—sue me).

There's nothing like coming downstairs and seeing those lights sparkling.

Or coming inside from a dreary, rainy day outside and seeing them light up the room in a calm, warm, and comforting glow.

Or having a bad day, looking up, and seeing them shine.

It sort of makes me upset when I come downstairs and see that someone has unplugged them, to be honest.

I guess they don't see it as I do.

Pretty, twinkling lights forever!
