Why I'm In Love With Christmas

It's The Happiest Time of The Year

Why I'm In Love With Christmas
Liza Brown

It seems like every single year I get even more excited about the holidays, especially Christmas! However, this year I have an Obsessive Christmas Disorder (OCD). According to Urban dictionary, OChristmasD is "any adult that is overly excited about Christmas and has a more than normal preoccupation with Christmas decorations and clothing or has more than two Christmas Trees." I for sure don't have two Christmas trees but I do carry lots of Christmas spirit!

So, I would like to share 20 reasons why I love Christmas so much!!!

1. The aftermath of finals

So weather you passed or failed your classes, the Christmas joy is there for you! and it gives you a reason to not care at all.

2. House decorations

Every time I pass by houses full of Christmas decorations, it makes me feel so excited knowing that the majority are competing with others to find out who has the best decorative home. The more competing, the more creative you get to see!

3. Opening presents

Just the mysterious excitement you get when you are about to open a present. Even if it is something you don't like at all, opening presents is better than the gift in my opinion. It is an intense job...

4. Worst Christmas movies

TV channels always give you bad Christmas movies but you still watch them anyway 'cause it's Christmas.

5. You can drink champagne and not get judged by your parents

I don't know about you but when I was under 21, Christmas was the best time to drink with your parents. During this time of year, your parents can't yell at you 'cause its christmas and it's like a one time thing ya know?

6. George Michael's "Last Christmas"

I am not ashamed to admit that I still love this song. Apart from George's amazing hair, this song brings back so many memories.

7. You can lie quite convincingly about having a prior engagement when invited to parties

If you're one of those people who cancel on invites most of the time because you don't feel like going, and you make up a lame excuse, well... Christmas is the best excuse out of all!

8. Sharing family stories during Christmas Eve... and some can be embarrassing

9. Panettone

What else is there to say.. soft... and glorious piece of art... Best. Christmas. Breakfast.

10. Mariah Carey's performance of "All I Want For Christmas"

Don't get me wrong I love Mariah's singles and all, but her performance made me think that man oh man... Christmas is full of surprises!

11. Gingerbread

To be completely honest, I am not a fan of gingerbread. The taste makes me feel sad. But I do LOVE decorating it!

12. A Charlie Brown Christmas

One of the best Christmas movies.

13. The tree itself

Pretty self explanatory.

14. Fireplace and hot chocolate

Christmas gives me a reason to sit back and relax in front of the fireplace and enjoy a nice hot chocolate with Christmas songs playing in the background.

15. Pie

Just pie... the smell of pie...

16. Eggnog

Vanilla eggnog is my favorite! Topped with a little bit of cinnamon and you are good to go!

17. Spending time with family

18. It feels like magic

19. You see more familiar faces than on any other holiday

I don't know why but each time I go Christmas shopping in December, I see friends I stopped talking to or people I have seen in school before.

20. Spend it with your other half :)

Happy Holidays everyone!

Waitlisted for a College Class? Here's What to Do!

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.

Top 10 Reasons My School Rocks!

Why I Chose a Small School Over a Big University.

I was asked so many times why I wanted to go to a small school when a big university is so much better. Don't get me wrong, I'm sure a big university is great but I absolutely love going to a small school. I know that I miss out on big sporting events and having people actually know where it is. I can't even count how many times I've been asked where it is and I know they won't know so I just say "somewhere in the middle of Wisconsin." But, I get to know most people at my school and I know my professors very well. Not to mention, being able to walk to the other side of campus in 5 minutes at a casual walking pace. I am so happy I made the decision to go to school where I did. I love my school and these are just a few reasons why.
