9 Reasons Christmas Should Actually Start On November 1st

9 Reasons Christmas Should Actually Start On November 1st

1. Two months of Christmas is better than one.


If you're a Christmas fanatic like me, then you totally agree that Christmas actually starts on November 1st. But, if you're my boyfriend, then you totally disagree and think Christmas should wait until after Thanksgiving to be celebrated. Except, he's wrong, and here are some reasons why!

1. Two months of Christmas is better than one.

November is Christmas eve month, so why would you not want two months to anticipate the best holiday of the year? I definitely don't think that one month for Christmas is nearly enough time to celebrate!

2. Black Friday and Cyber Monday are in November.

Black Friday happens the day after Thanksgiving, and Cyber Monday, the following Monday, both which are days in November. Therefore, you can get all your Christmas shopping before December even starts!

3. Extended time for Christmas music.

Christmas music on repeat? Yes, please!

4. Stores are already selling Christmas decorations anyway.

If the stores are selling Christmas decorations, then we all might as well buy them! Department stores are declaring it's Christmas time, so lets all hop on board.

5. Pumpkin spice hype is dying out.

Bye, pumpkin spice. Hello hot chocolate, eggnog, gingerbread, and peppermint lattes.

6. Hallmark movies start now.

Cheesy Hallmark Christmas movies are running now through December 25th, so curl up with a cup of hot cocoa and watch the Christmas love stories unfold.

7. Deck the halls.

Why would you not want your house to be decked out with Christmas decorations, Christmas lights, and all things jolly for two months?

8. More time to get on Santa's "nice" list.

There's more time to show Santa why you belong on the nice list so that you don't end up with coal for Christmas.

9. It makes you happy!

If you start celebrating Christmas in November, then you have even more time to be joyful!!

4 Ways The Plan To Deport International Students Is Dumb, According To An Exchange Student

The whole policy isn't very stay-in-place, if you ask me.

On Monday, July 6, new federal guidelines were announced that do not allow international students to remain in the U.S. unless they are taking classes in person. Which, if you ask me, is stupid.

We are all sending prayers to Naya Rivera hoping she finds them so we can find her.

I woke up this morning looking to find Naya Rivera's name trending No. 1 on Twitter. I was reading all of everyone's prayers wishing to find her so she can be reunited with her baby boy who is only 4 years old.

Naya's son's name is Lord and the entire collective is hoping the Lord is with him right now. I'm a firm believer in the Fear of God, I hope all of Naya's love is protecting Lord right now.

With the coronavirus (COVID-19) pandemic still surging in the United States, where we are averaging 50,000 cases daily, wearing a face mask has become even more important. Dr. Anthony Fauci, the nation's top infectious disease expert, has stressed the importance of wearing a mask and is pleading Americans to take notice of the "disturbing" rise in cases. It would be common sense to listen to him, considering we are dealing with a virus that has a mortality rate higher than what we have seen with other viruses.

These Superfood Beauty Products Show Kale And Matcha Work For SO Much More Than We Thought

Just another summer's day with a cold glass of kombucha on my face.

I've been vegan for about six years now, so a love for fresh vegetables and superfoods has now become a core part of my being. Don't get me wrong. I love my indulgent, creamy pastas and truffle fries more than anyone. But I keep most of my focus on eating clean and healthy so I can indulge guilt-free.

But I'd say about a large part of my diet has always, unknowingly, included superfoods. Being Indian, lentils, beetroot, garlic, ginger, and whole grains have been core essentials on the family dinner table since I could digest solid foods.
