“There’s happy feeling nothing in the world can buy, when you pass around the coffee and the pumpkin pie.”
Christmas. Hanukah. Kwanza. Universal words for different ways of celebration. But to be honest, to me, it doesn’t matter what you celebrate or believe in. The holiday season is the holiday season, and that means busting out the Christmas music, the lights, the food, the spirit.
I really, really, love Christmas. I love the season, the time of December in general. To me, December means so many things, with the warm, fluttering happiness that comes with Christmas, and the magical, awe inspiring, regretful new years. This season is a magical time.
It’s not just a holiday. It’s a spirit in itself, a time where people feel this warm, tight feeling in their chest you can’t take away. You smile till your cheeks hurt, you shake your head and laugh but you can’t help but get so into it because that’s what it does. The holiday spirit is a force to be reckoned with, warm, fierce, enchanting.
LOOK AT THESE PICTURES AND TELL ME YOU FEEL NOTHING.
I DARE YOU TELL ME RIGHT NOW.
Don’t fight it. You can’t fight it. Just embrace it. It’ll greet you with warm hugs and coffee mugs, I promise. The holiday spirit is just this great feeling that I always hope everyone can enjoy, no matter what. It’s the amazing time to be with the ones you love, curled up together and laughing. It’s this time to embrace the coming of the end with a cheer and cookies waiting by the fire. Half the fun is getting into it and participating you know. Putting everything together and watching it all fall into place as your world just slows down for this one, warm moment.
It’s time like these that you’ll find that perfect picture that just captures that moment. The one you look back at and smile because it was so nice.
What’s the harm? Maybe a little damage to your wallets, sure, but its worth the years worth of memories you make looking back and smiling at it. The holiday season is opening its arms wide just for you, and all it asks for is a small smile and to simply embrace the whole thing in return.
IT WON’T KILL YOU I PROMISE.
Instead, you’ll find yourself in a moment, a gentle, sweeping, heartfelt moment that you will remember for the rest of your life.
So everyone, do yourselves a favor and please, please allow yourself to be drowned in the holiday spirit. Get into the season and take it with everything you have because that is when you will be the most happy.
HAPPY HOLIDAYS EVERYONE!
