Now that Thanksgiving has officially passed, all the grumps upset over celebrating Christmas too early can finally accept the arrival of the Christmas spirit! Whether it’s the romantic snowfall, tons of overplayed Christmas songs, or nonstop stream of holiday classics that hit the TV stations for the 25-day countdown, this season is truly the best time of the year. Don’t believe me? Here’s all the evidence you need to prove Christmas is unbeatable.

1. Staying warm might be a problem, but that’s the reason hot cocoa and puffy winter coats were invented.

2. String lights are EVERYWHERE, and it’s gorgeous.

3. People are especially kind, generous, and big-hearted.

4. While your wallet might not be too happy, it’s gift-giving season and, hey, Santa's got most of it covered.

5. There’s an abundance of this weird, white, fluff on the ground, aka the perfect blank slate to craft your magic with snow adventures.

6. The time has come for making messy, delicious Christmas cookies with the family and all its glory.

7. The tradition of hunting for the perfect Christmas tree forces the fam to rise to the challenge once again.

8. You no longer need an excuse to pull out your one-of-a-kind ugly Christmas sweater that’s been shoved in the back of your closet all year, waiting for it’s time to shine.

9. Time to clear the DVR and make room for the never ending supply of cheesy Christmas movies on air 25/7.

10. With Secret Santa exchanges and white elephant parties, the fun never ends.

11. Reunions with your long-lost cousins and MIA grandparents! Seriously, where have they been??

[rebelmouse-proxy-image https://media.rbl.ms/image?u=%2Ffiles%2F2016%2F11%2F23%2F636155237336080166-877448616_friends%2520hug.gif&ho=https%3A%2F%2Faz616578.vo.msecnd.net&s=745&h=f107041d9d04740f05295870d0c97aa709930b709e77bdc14ff384facf27823c&size=980x&c=3323673259 crop_info="%7B%22image%22%3A%20%22https%3A//media.rbl.ms/image%3Fu%3D%252Ffiles%252F2016%252F11%252F23%252F636155237336080166-877448616_friends%252520hug.gif%26ho%3Dhttps%253A%252F%252Faz616578.vo.msecnd.net%26s%3D745%26h%3Df107041d9d04740f05295870d0c97aa709930b709e77bdc14ff384facf27823c%26size%3D980x%26c%3D3323673259%22%7D" expand=1]

12. It's finally the time of the year to justify dressing up your dog as a reindeer.

13. The joy of seeing giant Christmas trees in malls, town squares, and windowsills is enough to bring tears to eyes.

14. From minty candy canes to peppermint mochas, everything is Christmas flavored and it’s amazing.

15. The sometimes embarrassing, always informative Christmas cards start hitting your mailbox every week and you remember why the United States Postal Service is still around.

16. You can finally jam to the endless stream of Christmas tunes wherever you go without being judged.
