It’s beginning to look a lot like Christmas!


Gianna Vazquez

Christmas is the time for traditions and family. It’s when everyone gets excited and antsy to come together and open gifts. It’s the food we eat, the people we see, the decorating, and the presents. It has become a rite of passage we take every December. Although this year we may not be able to do some of the usual Christmas festivities, we still need to have some Christmas spirit especially with this mess of a year.

We may not have the cringey work holiday parties, the uncomfortable pictures on Santa’s lap, or the regular gathering at the Rockefeller Christmas tree but we still have the iconic festivities we can do from the comfort of our homes. We can watch movies, make gingerbread houses, and of course we can decorate. Some great Christmas movies you can watch are: The Grinch Who Stole Christmas, Home Alone, Christmas Chronicles 1 & 2, The Santa Claus 1, 2 & 3, This Christmas, Almost Christmas, and the list goes on and on. 

Decorating your home is a great way to spread some holiday cheer. From putting up a tree to hanging lights outside there is so much you can do. Going out and getting things to decorate your house is certain to get you in the holiday spirit. Nothing adds cheer like putting up holiday blow ups and filling your windows with twinkling lights. 

Also who does not love Christmas music? Unless you are a real life Grinch there is no way you can listen to Christmas music and not immediately fall into the holiday mood. Some great songs to get you into the spirit are: All I want for Christmas, Baby it’s Cold Outside, Mistletoe, This Christmas, Santa Baby, and of course anything by Michael Bublé. With so much going on in our world and a plethora of changes happening every day, let’s take the time to slow down and remember our holiday cheer.
