You have to admit your happiness when you drive by houses that are completely decked out for the Christmas season. When everybody is excited about the holidays, it’s easy for the cheer to go around. It might be a lot of work to dig your decorations out of storage, but once you actually do it, you’ll be surprised what happens. Excitement starts to flow, the eggnog gets poured, carols get sung, and you make memories with friends and family.
There’s something so special about the Christmas season. If you’re a scrooge, you’re only really out to destroy it for yourself. Here are reasons you have no excuse not to engage in the Christmas spirit this go around.
Decorating Will Burn Calories
It’s no secret that the holiday season is one that is filled with calories and subdued guilt at eating said calories. There is no reason not to engage in the spirit wholeheartedly and eat all of the cookies you want, because if you actually decorate and make those trips up and down the stairs, you’re burning the calories you’re eating. You see, the more invested you are, the more everything is a wash and you can enjoy the spirit of christmas with decorations out and tummies full.
Other People Will Install Your Lights
Christmas lights are the best part of Christmas. If you don’t at least have a string around your porch, you’re kind of pathetic. Hanging lights might be a lot of work, but the happiness everyone feels when they drive by is worth the amount of work. Also, did you know you don’t even have to be responsible to install the lights yourself? That’s right. People will hang your Christmas lights for you, so for the love of Santa Claus and all things sparkly, get the lights hung.
Happiness is Eggnog Lattes
Eggnog only comes once a year. You have to stock up on that stuff. It’s pure gold. You know what’s even better than eggnog? Eggnog lattes. There is no excuse not to go all out during the Christmas season because by golly, the good stuff only comes out during this time of the year. You can literally buy happiness during Christmas time.
Love is Found Under the Mistletoe
You can’t pretend like you’ve never dreamed about kissing somebody under the mistletoe. Granted, it has to be somebody you’ve been wanting to kiss, or that you’re at least attracted to, but seriously. Love is found at cheesy holiday parties underneath the mistletoe. The more Christmas spirit you feel and the more spiced rum you drink, the more likely you are to find love. It’s as simple as that.
