6 Reasons To Love Having A Christmastime Birthday

Happy birthday to all of the holiday babies!!!

6 Reasons To Love Having A Christmastime Birthday
Peggy Dwyer

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!

The Superbowl is the biggest football event of the year, and the 50-year history of the competition has seen a lot of memorable moments. The event first began in 1967, when the first AFL-NFL World Championship Game was played in Los Angeles. Since then, the NFL has grown from a small regional competition to an international phenomenon. Over the course of the last 50 years, the Superbowl has seen some amazing plays, memorable moments and incredible records. This includes Tom Brady's record of five Superbowl titles, the first time the Patriots won three consecutive championships, and the Steelers' record of six Superbowl titles. The event has also become a cultural phenomenon, with millions of people tuning in each year to watch the big game. There are now commercials, halftime shows, and other events that make the Superbowl a true American spectacle.

11 Genres Of Music That Originated From Black Culture

Numbers don't lie, up in the charts many times, black culture has defined the music industry. Music is a worldly language that can be understood by people all over the world. You bet black culture has taken over the music industry, but not from the way you may think. I'm not talking about their prominent presence in the rap game, but the origins of eleven different genres of music. Black culture is always using their heritage and ancestral knowledge to transmute the current energy to a higher frequency.

I can only thrive in a diversity of friends.
