1. Aesthetics. I love how the people who get into decorating for the holidays really get into it. Lights everywhere, huge blow-up lawn decorations, paper leaves and snowflakes strung up; it’s all fantastic.
2. Seasonal food. Would I be as crazy about egg nog if I had it all year round? Probably not. Also, those little break-and-bake sugar cookies with the pictures of jack-o-lanterns or Christmas trees on them. I may or may not have eating an entire box of those by myself once. (Not all in one sitting, at least.) Although to be honest, I am not into the pumpkin trend; I mean, I don’t dislike pumpkin, but really, what’s so great about it? Even for only a couple months out of the year? It’s just a squash.
3. Days off. Because really, who wants to work/go to school when it’s cold and grey out? It’s so nice to have a socially acceptable excuse to stay in, watch movies and eat as much as possible.
4. Bad TV movies. Self explanatory. Thank you Lifetime, Hallmark Channel and ABC Family.
