Merry Christmas and Happy New Years’ to you all! It’s right about the time that people are preparing for the holiday, so I thought I’d wish everyone a happy season’s greetings and all that jazz.
I really want to thank everyone who takes the time to read these things and say that I really appreciate the blogging community as a whole. You guys have been nothing but supportive, and always heckin’ awesome to read.
This year is ending on a fairly tumultuous note for me. This past October/November really sucked eggs for me, so I’m hoping things turn up in the new year. I know that things changing on a dime just because the calendar year is beginning anew is a fool’s dream, but it’d be freakin’ sweet if that were real. I mean, who doesn’t want better things on the horizon just because a number changed, from 2019 to 2020?
Anyways, just wanted to wish you all a happy time in these coming weeks! It’s an obligatory holiday post!
Plus, I’d also like to leave you with some Christmas recommendations. You know, little activities you can do to make the holidays just a tad more bearable.
1 – Watch The Muppet Christmas Carol
It is by far the best iteration of A Christmas Carol you could ever hope to watch.
2 – Eat a Mouthful of Cookie Dough
Look, I know all the labels tell you not to, that it’s bad for you, that you’re doing damage to yourself. But, I swear, that single mouthful just tastes so darned delicious. It’s what I imagine Play-Doh tastes like.
(Disclaimer: I am in no way a licensed medical professional. Eat raw cookie dough at your own risk.)
3 – Wear Fuzzy Socks
You can wear fuzzy socks on any ole day of the year, but there’s something particularly comforting about wearing them in the weeks leading up to Christmas. Especially if you’ve got a pair of Christmas-themed fuzzy socks you got as a gift last year that you haven’t worn until this very moment.
4 – Go to the Beach
No one spends a lot of time at the beach when it isn’t summer, which means that there’s a lot of space to lay down your blanket! Sure, the water is freezing this time of year, but it is also gloriously devoid of summer beach tourists. Plan yourself a trip and experience a wintry beach time. I’m 80% sure you won’t regret it.
5 – Play a Video Game
If you already play video games, you know how relaxing a video game can be when holiday plans are piling up on you. If you don’t play video games, you are missing out on one of the most stress-relieving hobbies you can have. And even though they’re a time for love and caring, holidays can be hella stressful.
