the evolution of Christmas

IT'S HERE!  Don't ask what because you KNOW WHAT!  And if you don't, go back to human school because you should know that it's officially CHRISTMAS TIME!

I've been trying to be a mature, jaded adult about all of this and (apart from a few rogue Instagram pics) I've done a pretty good job of containing  my holiday cheer until the appropriate time.  But according to all of the blogging books and human guidelines, it's now officially time to start pooping glitter and chugging the 'nog!

In celebration, I present my first unashamedly "I Love Christmas Way Too Much" post! WEEEEEEEEE!


Christmas is obviously magical at any age but there's no denying that the lure of the whole glorious season changes over the course of your lifetime.  This list probably won't tell you anything that you don't already know but then again, when do I ever do that?



Worst Parts

Mall Santa is sort of creepy.

December 24 is the longest night ever.

Grownups just seriously don't get the repercussions of staying up too late.  He knows when you are sleeping, for crying out loud!

Best Parts




Bottom Line: Why It's Awesome

All you get is a crap ton of toys and THEY ALL RULE.




Worst Parts

Keeping up the surly teenager face when you really just want to dance around in your footies on Christmas morning

"No, Grandma, I don't have a boyfriend.  Like, jeez."

This cold weather is, like, totally messing up my hair.

Best Parts


Bottom Line: Why It's Awesome

No school and lots and lots of food.  Plus, you look totally hot in earmuffs.


Worst Parts

"A whole MONTH without my friends?!"

"Wait a sec.  When did Christmas cookies start doing this to my butt?"

Your bedroom no longer exists.  Your parents have an extremely well-furnished new storage closet, though.

Best Parts


Bottom Line: Why It's Awesome

Exams over.  That's enough.



Worst Parts

So many gifts to buy, so little money.

So many places to go, so little money.

So many Christmas festivities, so little money.

So many pies, SO MANY CALORIES.

Best Parts


Bottom Line: Why It's Awesome

All you do for a week is hang out with your family.
And the only thing wrong with that is that it took you twenty something years to figure out that's all you need.
