Why We Should Save Christmas Music For Christmas

Save the most wonderful music for the most wonderful time of the year.

Why We Should Save Christmas Music For Christmas

The minute Halloween ended, people stopped listening to "Thriller" and "The Monster Mash" and switched to "Last Christmas" and Michael Buble's entire Christmas album. That means almost two months of Christmas music. Doesn't two months of the same few dozen songs get old? How many times can we hear about Mommy kissing Santa Claus or Elvis's blue Christmas before we completely deplete our love for Christmas music?

Christmas is my favorite time of the year: family get-togethers, good food, lots of cookies, and everyone sharing the same holiday cheer. You can't deny that there's a special feel to Christmas that is unique to the few weeks leading up to the holiday. The songs during this time of the year add to the sentiment of the season and almost define the Christmas season. When we start playing these songs during fall, they get jaded and lose their effect. If the Christmas songs weren't synonymous with Christmas, they wouldn't be as exciting. Playing them the minute Halloween ends will change the identity of the songs, and they will lose their power.

Playing Christmas music at the beginning of November overlooks Thanksgiving. Thanksgiving is such an important holiday in the U.S. and doesn't deserve to live in the shadow of Christmas.

Plus, there are so many Christmas songs that get old after hearing them a few times. There are many good Christmas songs, but others make me want to tear my hair out. We all know, you gave him your heart last Christmas, and because of that, you're going to have the worst holiday this year. The first few times this song plays, we can sympathize with you, but after, the song is complaining about the same loser for months on end, and we're over your drama. And we all learned our lesson about Rudolph years ago. There is no need to listen to his life story over and over—maybe a nice reminder once a year, but not every hour in department stores.

If we continue extending the Christmas season for so long, we will eventually lose our love for the holiday. Save the Christmas songs for the right time of the time of the year.

Is Meaningful Casual Sex A Paradox?

Why noncommittal sex is more complicated than we'd like to think.


I lost my virginity to a graduate student from Los Angeles. We’d met at a rundown cafe whose Yelp page complained of an alleged rat infestation. His name was Ken and he was 25. What drew me to him was the peculiar way his mouth was perpetually fixed into a sideways, half-moon shape that was like a smirk but without any trace of smugness. But the two most striking parts of Ken by far were the dinner plate roundness of his face and his small, expressionless teddy bear eyes. Of the things that mattered to him, there was his best friend, a college dropout who sold computer parts in Toronto, and sex.

My Astral Life

I'm the first to admit that I am one of THOSE people who uses their zodiac sign as a description of themselves.

I'm a Cancer, a Crab, a Moon Child. It's currently our season fellow Crabs! So without further ado, here are all of the signs that you're a Cancer.

The Blessing of Lacking Sex Appeal

To all the fellow non "it" girls out there


Lacking sex appeal is not a desirable thing. It makes you fee not ugly, but wrong. Not having charisma is not a life goal. It doesn't make you fee friendless, but isolated. Not being the "it" girl happens, and tonight (and every nigh prior to this)

Confessions From the Single Friend of the Group

It is truly the worst place to be

Confessions From the Single Friend of the Group

Look. If you are anything like me, complaining about being single is such a hard thing to because you are genuinely happy for your friends, but as they continue to be happy in their relationships, the ever crushing weight of being the single friends can become overwhelming. For context, my primary friend group consists of four people. We are all roommates and it is a great time here. All three of my roommates have boyfriends/girlfriends, which makes our friend group of four quickly jump to seven, and it is wonderful! I love my roommates so much and I love their S.O's, but no matter how much I love them I always get extremely jealous and sad. The sad thing is that the only part that ever truly ends up bugging me is that since I am single, they are my go-to top priorities and it has been really hard to watch myself slip from the top of their go-to's to not being their go to when they feel the weight of the world. What makes it harder is that expressing that I feel alone and unwanted makes me sound jealous and like I don't want my friends to hangout with their people. I get it. I do. But there are just days I want to be someone's first pick and I'm not.
