6 Reasons To Love Having A Christmastime Birthday

6 Reasons To Love Having A Christmastime Birthday

Happy birthday to all of the holiday babies!!!


It is that time of year again... no, not just Christmas, but all of the special and wonderful birthdays. Instead of spending time finding things wrong with a holiday birthday, I decided to make a list of my favorite things about my birthday and the time of the year. So, no, I don't hate having a holiday birthday, I actually love it.

1. Everyone is already in a good mood for the holiday

Everyone is already so excited, and if you can fake it till you make it, you can convince yourself they are just super excited to celebrate for you. But seriously, everyone is feeling great and it is not in the holiday stress season, like November, so everyone is truly relaxed and ready to celebrate.

2. Holiday break time, no time constraints for celebration 

Finals week? Definitely over. Work? What's that? Everyone is home from school, work, and college with essentially nothing to do, so a party on a Monday? Heck yeah!

3. So many holiday festivities to take part in

Ice skating, sledding, Christmas tree selecting, Christmas cookies, the options are truly limitless. Life is brighter and the amount of festivities is truly endless at this time of the year.

4. Double the presents, hello!!

This one is a no-brainer. Why would you get salty over this? The best part of the year, and it seems never ending, especially when you are twelve.

5. Everyone is around to celebrate

From your besties meeting back up over break to that cousin you haven't seen in ages, you can pretty much check everyone off your list to visit in one shot. The number of guests to that party on a Monday night can be limitless.

6. Just be happy

But really, a birthday is a birthday and is never a bad thing!! Stop the whining about lack of presents or the lack of attention and be grateful for what you do receive. It is the happiest time of the year and you were blessed to have a birthday in such a happy time, so enjoy it!

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!
