Christmas is almost here! I don’t know about you, but I’m so glad 2016 is coming to a close. Despite the challenges and events of this year, I’m still in the holiday spirit. As I go into full elf-mode for Christmas, I want to share a list of 8 of the best things about Christmas.

8 of the best things about Christmas season:

  1. Christmas Trees: Some of my favorite family holiday memories involve buying and decorating a Christmas tree. As an adult, I own a fake tree, but lighting and decorating it just as fun as it was when I was a kid. 
  2. Sweaters: Most times it’s too warm to wear a sweater in Southern California, even in December. This year is one of the cooler Decembers on record. Meaning: sweater weather!
  3. Egg Nog: Did you know that Jack-in-the-Box discontinued egg nog shakes? I’m going to have to test a copycat egg nog shake recipe. I’m also thinking of making an egg nog latte, and egg nog french toast. Decisions, decisions… 
  4. Holiday Lights: Another one of my favorite family holiday traditions is driving around to look at Christmas lights. My mother used to herd us pajama-clad children into the car and drive around to look at holiday lights. Sometimes we would stumble upon block parties with food, music, and celebration! 
  5. Fleece Pajamas: A tiny part of me gets excited to wear my fleece holiday onesie pajamas while decorating the tree or wrapping gifts. Fleece PJs are also my holiday movie marathon uniform.  
  6. Movies: Watching holiday movies have always been a tradition for me.  A few of my favorite holiday movies include Four Christmases, Home Alone (1, 2, & 3) and the quintessential holiday movie for 80’s & 90’s kids: National Lampoon’s Christmas Vacation. 
  7. New Socks:  I hate socks, and I only wear them in winter. Therefore, I make sure to buy new pairs around Christmas to keep me stocked until spring. 
  8. Winter break: As a digital marketer, the end of year holidays are crunch time for me. I try to get my most important work done by mid-December so I can take a worry-free Christmas break.
