Fa la la la laaaa! It’s December 1st and Christmas in the air. ‘Tis the season to be jolly! I guess I’ll just pretend final exams don’t start in a little over a week then? Here are the top ten reasons why I believe it’s the most wonderful time of the year.

1. The music. I can’t help but sport a toothy grin and belt out lyrics like a lunatic in public, my car or wherever in the world I may be. The classics never get old and this is just about the only time I can get away with my lousy (but oh-so cheerful) singing!
2. My birthday, which is conveniently 9 days before Christmas. I like to think of it as a “present teaser.”
3. The smell = snow + baking Gingerbread cookies + Christmas tree + cozy fire
4. White Christmas lights. Simple but elegant.
5. Giving thoughtful, homemade gifts. Time to get baking!
6. Hitting the slopes! Okemo, here I come!
7. Watching A Charlie Brown Christmas and How the Grinch Stole Christmas like it was the first time…ever.8. Christmas party attire: both classy and tacky. I’m way too excited for the ugly sweater parties I will be attending!
9. Lacing up my skates. The annual Tiger alumni hockey game always falls around the holiday and nothing makes me happier than suiting up (and kicking a little butt). Oh, and being so sore the next day that it hurts to sit. Love that.
10. Family traditions.

What do you love about December? 

Sprinkled with Love,
