Though our lists may be filled with glittering shoes, furry coats, velvet dresses, and much more. There is one thing that everyone who celebrates Christmas wants more than anything; that being a Merry Christmas.
Whether it comes from food, traditions, giving, or spending time with those you love, it is the happiness and memories that count more than what is under the tree. Perhaps this is why people love the Christmas Season just as much as Christmas Day. The music, the lights, the parties, the spirit, whatever it may be, never fails to put a smile on anyone’s face.
To me personally, it’s seeing loved ones who I have not seen in a while that make Christmas time special for me. Whether it may be my friends, cousins, my cousins poodle mix, or my old choir; seeing those I have missed and having a good time are what I want most for Christmas. Just like last year, I was very fortunate to reunite with some good friends at my old school’s choral concert along with a few other occasions as well. Though every occasion was different and different friends were present, each time we were all equally happy to be together and enjoy the moment. From singing at my town tree lighting with some of my theatre friends, to a marvelous city trip with a good friend from my university, to reuniting with friends who were away at college, and of course, to feeling rebellious and cruising around town with my lifelong best friend and her boyfriend.
The point of this post is to show that no matter what it is, find what makes you happy during the holiday season. It is much more valuable than anything wrapped under the tree. Listen to music, bake some cookies, throw a party, just have a Merry Christmas.
P.S. My fashion highlight from this season is my brand new pink coat from Topshop also owned and modeled by my favorite YouTuber and Blogger Freddy Cousin Brown.
