I Am Sick And Tired Of Hearing Christmas Carols Before Thanksgiving

Why do we start celebrating Christmas so early? Halloween just ended and it's not even snowing!

Now I know that there aren't a lot of us, but I am one of those unique people who has Halloween as their favorite Holiday. Yes, Halloween, not Valentine's day, not Easter, and especially not Christmas. Don't get me wrong, Christmas is a great holiday and I love it as much as the next person, but Christmas is too commercialized..

It just has always bothered me how some people jump straight to Christmas. They really don't care for the other holidays, and the minute Christmas is over they jump right into a countdown mode for next Christmas. The minute November 1st hit I couldn't even count on my hands how many people I know decided to play Christmas music.

Imagine that, October 31st has just ended and people are posting videos of them singing Christmas music. I know you can imagine it because you've probably also experienced it or you are that person. There is nothing wrong with being that person either, I think Christmas people are the most energetic.

My only question, is why can't they keep that same energy for other holidays? I understand that some people just don't like dressing up on Halloween, and I understand that certain people do not celebrate it for religious purposes. Even then does that mean they have to ruin it for the people who do?

I just don't sit around and mope asking when Christmas will come. I do like Christmas and it is fun when it comes, but I like Halloween because I can eat candy and wear a fun outfit. I have had so many people tell me that I am too old for Halloween or question why I still dress up.

The answer is: because it's fun. Holidays do not have age limitations on them and they never have. Putting a limitation or telling someone that "you're too old for this" ruins the magic and ruins the fun.

Besides people ruining the fun I think stores do too. Halloween was on a Wednesday this year, that meant celebrations and parties on the weekend and not the weekday. Imagine my surprise when I walk into Walmart on October 29 and they have an entire section for Christmas.

Christmas gets everything. They have over millions of songs, a lot of them are the same and are just by different people. Christmas also has all the movies, no one can compete with all that Holly Jolly stuff.

Am I the only one who thinks Thanksgiving gets screwed over? I get that Thanksgiving doesn't have catchy jingles or fun outfits to be worn, but I feel like it is seriously underappreciated. To all the people out there looking confused on what the purpose of this article actually is, it's that Thanksgiving is important.

And I'm not talking about it in the sense of evil Pilgrims taking Native Americans for granted. I'm speaking of Thanksgiving as a time for people to be together, help one another, and eat some dope food. That's all I want, for Thanksgiving to be more appreciated.

Can we do that? Enjoy Holidays in the now before we jump into the presents and a glorified fat man that breaks into our house.!

Small towns certainly have their pros and cons. Many people who grow up in small towns find themselves counting the days until they get to escape their roots and plant new ones in bigger, "better" places. And that's fine. I'd be lying if I said I hadn't thought those same thoughts before too. We all have, but they say it's important to remember where you came from. When I think about where I come from, I can't help having an overwhelming feeling of gratitude for my roots. Being from a small town has taught me so many important lessons that I will carry with me for the rest of my life.

Dealing with the inevitable realities of college life.

Course registration at college can be a big hassle and is almost never talked about. Classes you want to take fill up before you get a chance to register. You might change your mind about a class you want to take and must struggle to find another class to fit in the same time period. You also have to make sure no classes clash by time. Like I said, it's a big hassle.

This semester, I was waitlisted for two classes. Most people in this situation, especially first years, freak out because they don't know what to do. Here is what you should do when this happens.

Challah vs. Easter Bread: A Delicious Dilemma

Is there really such a difference in Challah bread or Easter Bread?

Ever since I could remember, it was a treat to receive Easter Bread made by my grandmother. We would only have it once a year and the wait was excruciating. Now that my grandmother has gotten older, she has stopped baking a lot of her recipes that require a lot of hand usage--her traditional Italian baking means no machines. So for the past few years, I have missed enjoying my Easter Bread.
