5 Thoughts Of People Who Dislike The Holiday Season

The holiday season starts in the middle or end of November and literally seems to go on FOREVER! (just kidding, just til the end of December). Every day you see all these people living it up in the holiday joy, whether that be singing, shopping or just decorating. However, people always forget about the people who don't enjoy the holidays, for whatever reason. There are plenty of reasons not to enjoy the holidays and it is no one's job to make those people feel worse about themselves just because they would rather avoid the holidays. One thing I can tell you for sure is that these people have these thoughts at least twice a week for the entire time holiday season.

1. Why on earth are we starting so freaking early?

Giphy

November 1st is too early. Christmas is literally 55 days away still. Please stop shoving the music down our throat. We can agree that playing Christmas music in December is acceptable. But in November we have not even come anywhere near Christmas yet. But its not just your music, its the trees and the decorations and the shopping all the time. We really don't want you to shove it down our throats anymore.

2. Christmas Phrases 

Giphy

Starting mid-December literally everyone starts using the cringeworthy Christmas phrases as instagram captions. These can vary from "it's beginning to look a lot like Christmas" or "Christmas is in the air" or "Dreaming of a white Christmas". Well listen here Linda, WE DON'T CARE. Glad your excited but the whole world does not need to know about your Christmas plans.

3. The Dreadful Family Politics

Giphy

Don't even get us started on the family politics. "Is Clara coming for Christmas?" "No" *Insert family tantrum here*. SHE DOESN'T WANT TO COME SO SCREW IT. What is the point of getting all freaking worked up and freaking out, it's not going to change her mind. Or the ultimate, bouncing from one house to the other. Literally get over yourselves for one day.

4. Shopping

Giphy

People get so caught up in the material aspects of Christmas that they have to make sure everyone gets the perfect gifts and everything they want. What happened to just enjoying someones company? and don't even get me started on the people who spend all their time bragging about their gifts and what they got other people. Not only do we hate shopping, we hate hearing you talk about it.

5. I am a master at human toleration 

Giphy

Plus lets be honest, those of us who don't like the holiday season are INCREDIBLY out numbered by those people who LOVE it. We just have to sit back and listen to the music, and go shopping, and power through the family battles. We have adapted to tolerate and smile through all the holiday stress and cheerful joy that drives us nuts.

Trust me, I get it. The holidays are fun and a happy time. You get to see your family, your friends, you get gifts and you get to eat all this bomb food, what is not to like. But you might not consider the people who lost their family, have no support system, are incredibly financially unstable. Those people don't get to celebrate with carefree feeling and often feel mostly stressed and confused on trying to make everyone else happy instead of enjoy their time together.

So yes you may love Christmas and Thanksgiving for whatever reason that you do, but don't forget the people who don't enjoy the holidays. Don't make those people feel bad about the holidays. Don't make them feel like they cause a burden to your happiness. It is not their fault. We are people too who have the feelings and their reasons for disliking the holidays.

Most importantly do not under any circumstances shove your feelings, thoughts, religions, emotions and holiday joy down our throats. It is just going to make us hate you more.

11 Songs That Will Hit You In The Feels, No Doubt About It

One of my favorite things to do when it comes to music is making different playlists on Spotify. I find it so fun to go back to old songs, find new ones, and categorize them into my different playlists. We all have that one playlist that we resort to when we are really feeling some type of way — also known as a "feels" playlist. If you have one of these playlists or feel ~inspired~ to make one, here are 11 songs that are a must to add.

The Boyfriends Of The 2000s

Thank you, J14, for the Posters

5909
J14 magazine

Every girl remembers her first crush. Even if your first crush was the boy in your kindergarten class that ate crayons, your first true love will always be the one that holds the key to your heart. Growing up in the 2000s, everyone knew who your dream guy was. Your family probably still give you grief and your best friends probably still reminisce, so it is impossible to forget your first celebrity crush. You bought a Tiger Beat magazine every chance you could just to read up about what your favorite celebrity was doing. Your room was fully decorated with posters of them, and it wasn't unusual to have fights with your best friends over who was going to marry him. If you were a 90's baby, lucky you because the 2000s were full of boys that were easy to love. I hope you enjoy a walk down memory lane and quickly realize that Bieber was definitely not the first guy with that hair cut. Here are 15 90's baby's first boyfriends.
