25 Reasons to love the Holidays

“I’m a cotton-headed ninnymuggins” I watch Elf every year to set the holiday mood.   This movie had me buckled over laughing last night.  I mean, eating gum off the street in New York City? Maple Syrup on spaghetti? There isn’t a scene where Buddy (Will Pharrell) ceases to break social norms in the big and bold New York City.

Below is a list of 25 Reason to love the Holidays

  1. The smell of pine trees
  2. The coming together of family and friends
  3. kids dressed up in holiday clothes
  4. You get to watch Elf, Love Actually, and Home Alone
  5. Drinks like coffee, tea, and cider warm you up
  6. Receiving and reading Christmas cards from friends and family
  7. Christmas lights everywhere
  8. Bringing out the Christmas ornament you made in 2nd grade
  9. Sharing new holiday recipes
  10. The extra motivation to get to the gym (think holiday parties)
  11. Catching up with friends from high school, college, grad school etc.
  12. Watching the reaction after giving a gift
  13. Writing Christmas cards
  14. Ugly Christmas sweater parties
  15. Lit fireplaces
  16. Hearing Mariah Carey’s “All I want for Christmas is you”
  17. The fact you can add “Happy Holidays” to literally every conversation
  18. Great time of the year for red lipstick
  19. New and old pictures with Santa
  20. Frank Sinatra…enough said.
  21. You never feel like your “missing out” on Christmas Eve or Christmas because it’s known that everyone is with their family
  22. Time off of work
  23. Macy’s Christmas display…yes, I said it.
  24. Being snuggly and cuddly with family/friends
  25. High spirits from giving

  1. Can you believe I’ve never seen Elf?! That must change this holiday season.

    My favorite part of the holidays: Family traditions.

    • Erin, you must see ELF!

      Family traditions are great. We got it pretty fine tuned to the point where certain family members know exactly what they are suppose to bring. This is mostly do to the fact other family members expect them to make it and would be let down if they didn’t.
