the most wonderful time of the year

Yep, it's that time of year. Christmas music has been playing since Halloween in the local Wal-Mart. You've gone on like 4 dates to make gingerbread houses and haven't eaten even one of them. Cold has been a constant, and snow a slightly less constant. Christmas lights all over everywhere. You probably still don't know what to get your Dad for Christmas. You notice that everyone seems to be in a relationship and you are starting to realize you'll have nobody again for New Years' and are hoping to get lucky.

Christmas is an amazing time of the year. The build-up to December 25th, even better. For me, the preparations and all the fun stuff beforehand is way better. Christmas day usually entails my 11 year old sister waking me up at 3am to tell me Santa came and to check out my stocking. Getting up at 7 am dead tired from not sleeping enough during the night, then having to clean up the house so my cousins don't come over to a "pigsty" for our Christmas dinner. Don't get me wrong, I still love presents, eggnog, and everything else the day brings, but the buildup is way more fun to me. Now that finals are over and my brain can relax, here's "Christmas movies survival guide to Christmas"

1- Careful not to wish your family would disappear. It might come true.

2- Carry syrup with you at all times. You never know when you'll need it.

3- Go have a snowball fight.

4- If you are bored, go ask someone to get food. You know. "the code."

5- Sweaters that light up are a must have for any Christmas party.

6- The best way to spread Christmas Cheer, is singing loud for all to hear.

7- Watch out for yellow cars. They don't stop.

8- Don't get overbooked. If you get invited to the Whobilation, you don't want to end up like the Grinch.
