Some people tend to feel and spread the Christmas cheer earlier than others. Think you're one of them? Here are some tell-tale signs to see if you, and/or the people you know have been bit by the holiday bug.

1. Christmas tune cravings

It's easy to judge someone based off of their playlists. If yours is chock full of Christmas songs, you're likely filled to the brim with Christmas cheer, too.

2. You feel the need to bake

Cookies for Santa (just kidding, we know they're for you).

3. It’s already too cold for you to think straight

If you have trouble making it through late fall weather, your low weather immunity will also make you more suspect to being afflicted with Happy Holiday syndrome before the snow even begins to fall.

4. You’ve busted out scarves and wool hats

This goes along with number three. Obviously, if you're dressed to the nines for Antarctica, you're also dressed to go sleigh riding.

5. Hot chocolate on the regular?

Hot chocolate: #JustWinterThings.

6. Your friends are starting to get fed up with your red-and-green spiritedness

If your friends are beginning to avoid you, check your holiday spirit before you check for B.O. or bad breath.

7. You’re watching Hallmark Christmas movie marathons

Watch out: if you watch one cheesy, heartwarming Christmas movie on TV, you're definitely going to be glued to the couch for the rest of the day, at least.

8. The great indoors

Spending lots of time indoors? Decorating, sitting by the fireplace, sipping hot chocolate--whatever you're doing, the more you stay indoors, the more likely you are to catch the holiday feels.

[rebelmouse-proxy-image https://media.rbl.ms/image?u=%2Ffiles%2F2016%2F11%2F27%2F6361587735569213301198138467_stay%2520in.gif&ho=https%3A%2F%2Faz616578.vo.msecnd.net&s=363&h=d164d323cc207c3d2518a3a05ee3e93bf1c8a407a693e951b979e224d446a35d&size=980x&c=2669157386 crop_info="%7B%22image%22%3A%20%22https%3A//media.rbl.ms/image%3Fu%3D%252Ffiles%252F2016%252F11%252F27%252F6361587735569213301198138467_stay%252520in.gif%26ho%3Dhttps%253A%252F%252Faz616578.vo.msecnd.net%26s%3D363%26h%3Dd164d323cc207c3d2518a3a05ee3e93bf1c8a407a693e951b979e224d446a35d%26size%3D980x%26c%3D2669157386%22%7D" expand=1]

9. Every time you go shopping, you’re on “gift mode”.

What was once a trip to buy some detergent at Target has become a hunt for the perfect gifts to give to your close friends and family.

[rebelmouse-proxy-image https://media.rbl.ms/image?u=%2Ffiles%2F2016%2F11%2F27%2F6361587751104042861737196207_gift%2520giving.gif&ho=https%3A%2F%2Faz616578.vo.msecnd.net&s=786&h=56b3a1850cd5f13a3f33c37f7769a221065b4808444cf51e67c1f5bba88c0352&size=980x&c=1491701194 crop_info="%7B%22image%22%3A%20%22https%3A//media.rbl.ms/image%3Fu%3D%252Ffiles%252F2016%252F11%252F27%252F6361587751104042861737196207_gift%252520giving.gif%26ho%3Dhttps%253A%252F%252Faz616578.vo.msecnd.net%26s%3D786%26h%3D56b3a1850cd5f13a3f33c37f7769a221065b4808444cf51e67c1f5bba88c0352%26size%3D980x%26c%3D1491701194%22%7D" expand=1]

10. Sappy sentiments

Hugging people excessively? Playing Baby, It's Cold Outside and trying to duet with your best friend or significant other? You're definitely in the spirit!

11. You’ve reverted to your blanket-carrying, four-year-old self

If you've taken to bundling up in a blanket when you go from place-to-place, no one will judge you. You have an excuse: you're sick with holiday spirit!

[rebelmouse-proxy-image https://media.rbl.ms/image?u=%2Ffiles%2F2016%2F11%2F27%2F636158779151526489-753119444_snuggie.gif&ho=https%3A%2F%2Faz616578.vo.msecnd.net&s=522&h=8a3fbc379aa746a074fb2d08d237f253b10e065b4c5944d7e119a71714555efb&size=980x&c=3675824200 crop_info="%7B%22image%22%3A%20%22https%3A//media.rbl.ms/image%3Fu%3D%252Ffiles%252F2016%252F11%252F27%252F636158779151526489-753119444_snuggie.gif%26ho%3Dhttps%253A%252F%252Faz616578.vo.msecnd.net%26s%3D522%26h%3D8a3fbc379aa746a074fb2d08d237f253b10e065b4c5944d7e119a71714555efb%26size%3D980x%26c%3D3675824200%22%7D" expand=1]

12. You’ve taken a step into Bath and Body Works

The minute you enter this store, or a store like this, where Christmas scents and aesthetics are permeating your every pore, give up! At this point, all hope is lost.

Career as a Defense Lawyer

Lawyers are supposed to be unbiased. Lawyers are trained to look at both sides of an issue and give equal weight to each side. It is meant to be their mantra, "My client is innocent until proven guilty." But if you're thinking about becoming a defense attorney, it's not this pretty simple.
