Top 5 Signs You Have An Obsession With Christmas

Peppermint mochas are flying out the Starbucks drive through window and YOU are ready to let yourself enjoy your absolute favorite time of year.

Top 5 Signs You Have An Obsession With Christmas

Costco is stocked with an array of light-up reindeer, candy canes have hit the shelves and your Christmas sweaters are hanging at the front of your closet. Peppermint mochas are flying out the Starbucks drive through window and YOU are ready to let yourself enjoy your absolute favorite time of year. Your friends may think you’re a little crazy, but you just can’t hide your evident Christmas spirit.

1. You have your opinions ready to go regarding the “before Thanksgiving” argument

    Smile and nod folks, smile and nod. Even though you feel so strongly regarding the fact that listening to Christmas music and getting in the Christmas spirit before Thanksgiving has absolutely NO correlation to celebrating the actual holiday of Thanksgiving itself, people will try to make you feel bad for partaking in pure bliss a few weeks early. It is important to be polite, or else people will think you’re actually crazy if they don't already. To my fellow Christmas-obsessed, we’re no different than anybody else, we simply just like to have more fun.

    2. You partake in the consumption of all your favorite Christmas flavors on a regular basis

    Peppermint mochas and hazelnut lattes from Starbucks, a fat chunk of homemade peppermint bark, hot chocolate with a candy cane stir stick, your favorite Christmas cookies… All of these are consumed on a weekly (if not daily) basis and you’re not ashamed. Not ashamed people.

    3. You love buying Christmas gifts for people

    According to an online survey, upwards of 70 percent of the population feels stressed about Christmas shopping. If you’re anything like me, you consider yourself part of the rare 30% who thoroughly enjoys it. Witnessing the reactions of friends and family members when they open their perfect gifts brings you an indescribable abundance of joy. The holiday season is a gift-givers time to truly excel in their field.

    4. You cry on the inside (and on the outside) when Christmas music finally becomes acceptable to play in public

    Telling people your favorite genre of music is Christmas music doesn't really go over well from January through November. Finally, you can fully enjoy the genre in it’s truest form and you can even listen to it with your friends! Say hello to FM radio and goodbye to your iTunes playlist!

    5. You can finally say you have put your college degree in Christmas decorating to good use

    Go big or go home, need I say more? It’s your favorite thing to do. And if you don't have the opportunity to decorate your own space, the holiday season is the perfect opportunity to see some of the most stunning lights in all of creation (thanks Costco). There’s nothing you love more than driving around the neighbourhood looking at those lights. PURE BLISS AM I RIGHT?

    6 Things Owning A Cat Has Taught Me

    This one's for you, Spock.

    6 Things Owning A Cat Has Taught Me
    Liz Abere

    Owning a pet can get difficult and expensive. Sometimes, their vet bills cost hundreds of dollars just for one visit. On top of that, pets also need food, a wee wee pad for a dog, a litter box with litter for a cat, toys, and treats. Besides having to spend hundreds of dollars on them, they provide a great companion and are almost always there when you need to talk to someone. For the past six years, I have been the proud owner of my purebred Bengal cat named Spock. Although he's only seven years and four months old, he's taught me so much. Here's a few of the things that he has taught me.

    You're Your Own Best Friend

    Kinder Self - Eyes

    It's fun to see all of the selfies on social media, they are everywhere. I see pictures with pouty lips, duck lips and pucker lips. I see smokey eyes, huge fake lashes and nicely done nose jobs, boob jobs and butt lifts. Women working out in spandex, tiny tops and flip flops. I see tight abs and firm butts, manicured nails and toes, up dos and flowing hair. "Wow", I think to myself," I could apply tons of make-up, spend an hour on my hair, pose all day and not look like that. Maybe I need a longer stick!"
