Yes, I Am The One Who Celebrates Christmas Too Early

Yes, I Am The One Who Celebrates Christmas Too Early

Have a Holly Jolly Thanksgiving, y'all.

You know those people that get super offended when you celebrate Christmas before Thanksgiving? Ah. If that is you, I wouldn't read this or you may not be happy with me (this is all out of love and light hearted humor, I promise. Pls forgive me).

Here are 5 ways I will DEFINITELY be celebrating Christmas before Thanksgiving:


If this makes you cringe, have no fear. I don't just listen to Christmas music before Thanksgiving. I listen to it before Halloween, before Labor Day, before Fourth of July, Easter. Essentially, you can catch me dancing to All I Want for Christmas is You all. year. long. I have no shame in my Christmas jam game.

2. Christmas tree? Oh you bet.

I don't just put my tree up before Thanksgiving, I put it up, decorate it, dance around my living room, take pictures of it, all the works. You can FOR SURE count on me to have my Christmas tree up, and I sure will stare at my beautiful tree whilst eating my wonderful Thanksgiving food.

3. Wow, the Christmas socks.

First of all, you can complain to me about celebrating Christmas before Thanksgiving when Target has $1 Thanksgiving socks. Do they? No. OH, but do they have Christmas socks RIGHT NOW? Yes and you bet your little soul I will be stylin' and profilin' my Santa and Snowman socks all around campus with a big smile on my face.

4. Christmas Festivities?

YOU GOT IT. I will literally be at everything possible. I will be extra. $40 to see some lights? I'll be there. $4 for some hot chocolate? Ha. Everyday. I'm so extra that it could not even feel like Christmas outside and you better believe in my world it will be. Colbie is having a whole Christmas season, y'all do y'all.

5. I don't even like movies, but Christmas movies are a whole different story.

I will watch Elf at LEAST 43 times this holiday season, and it starts now. I clearly don't have enough time to watch it that many times AFTER Thanksgiving, right? I mean anyways, they already started the countdown to Christmas movies on tv or something, didn't they? Christmas movies are a must, and I will enjoy them for as long as I can.

Needless to say, I think it is hilarious how upset some people get about this. I love it. & not in a mean, sarcastic way, but I THOROUGHLY enjoy watching people argue through the topic of Christmas before Thanksgiving.


(Disclaimer: I adore Thanksgiving as well, though hard to believe).

10 Easter Candies That Should Be Thrown In The Trash IMMEDIATELY

Marshmallows should not be considered a candy.


As a child, it was such an exciting feeling to wake up on Easter morning.

You would spend that morning near the entryway of your home, waiting for the famous Easter bunny to ring the doorbell or knock on the door. After hearing that anticipated sound at the door, you'd take off running as fast as your little legs would take you in an attempt to catch a glimpse of this lightning-fast animal that never seemed to fail you in the candy department.

Your disappointment from missing him was always immediately forgotten because of the giant basket that he left behind.

As an adult, I still get an Easter basket, and no matter how old I get, I'm still just as excited as I was when I was five.

Only these days, my taste buds are more developed, and just because it's loaded with sugar doesn't mean it's gonna cut it.

Below is a list of Easter candies that belong in the trash rather than in a basket.

1. Peeps


There is nothing worse than a Peep, and if you like them you're a psychopath.

2. Brach's Jellybeans

Brach's jellybeans are the worst. They taste like cleaning supplies.

Starburst jellybeans are the move.

3. Robin Eggs

Points for festivity, but it still doesn't change the fact that they're gross.

4. Cadbury Creme Eggs

I honestly just can't get over the mess.

5. Jordan Almonds

First of all, these shouldn't even be considered a candy. Second, good luck eating these without breaking a tooth.

6. Hollow Chocolate Bunnies

A lot of people oppose solid bunnies because it's just "too much chocolate." In my opinion, there is no such thing as too much chocolate and these hollow bunnies just don't provide enough.

7. Ferrero Rocher

My sister likes these and I always gag when I see them poking out of her basket. Ferrero Rocher = TRASH.

8. Bunny Corn

Like candy corn, but with different colors — and it's just as bad in the spring as it was in the fall.

9. Russell Stover Marshmallow Eggs

Again with the marshmallows?

10.  Edible Easter Grass

I just wanna know who came up with this idea? Who let this happen? This is just not okay.

Christmas Of Remembrance Series: My Last Letter

Christmas time is not about the gifts... It is about something far, far more special.


Dear Reader,

Thank you for your time.

This is a series that I have dedicated to those I have loved and lost. It was merely a thought, then an idea, and now a realized creation. Christmas time… all winter really is a hard time for me. It holds this duality in my life of being both my favorite and also my least favorite and difficult time of year. It has been that way for years now.

In a way, this series aids my closure and healing further, and it allows me to tell my story in a way that, to me, is less scary (one of the many great facets of this platform). It was never my intention to write this in order to reach people, or encourage people, or serve as an inspiration to anyone. This was for me and only me. No one else. But, if these pieces of writing do impact someone, somewhere, or make them feel encouraged or inspired in some way or another, or just simply make them feel, then I hope you have enjoyed them. If I can make someone feel, then I guess I have done my job.

The life of an artist is often an uncertain one. The life of a human is a trying one. But life is a journey, and all journeys have their trials. Their tests. Their triumphs and rewards. And they all have their losses. What matters most is what you make of all of it. What lessons you learn. What changes you make. What life you create for yourself. What art you create because of it all. It can be very, very hard. But it can all be glorious at the same time.

At the heart of this series, my words, there is this deep and valuable belief of mine: Christmas (or the Winter Holiday that you may celebrate) is so much more about presents and cooking and shopping and all that other bullshit… it is about family.

The family that is related by blood. The family that surrounds your heart. Your Mom. Your brother. Your dearest friends. The bonds that make life valuable. Worth living. These bonds are soulful bonds, ones that are far more special than any mere trivial object. So… be with them. Forgive. Forget. Heal. Mend what is broken. Reassemble what has been shattered. And stop worrying so much. Laugh together. Cry together. Heal on another. Heal together. And may your new days be better, brighter, and full of love.

Happy Holidays.


A song for you...
