My Favorite Things to do During the Holidays and Winter Time

  • Listening to Christmas music. These songs MUST be played:
    • All I Want for Christmas is You by Mariah Carey
    • The Christmas Song by Whitney Houston
    • Christmas in America by Melissa Etheridge
    • What Christmas Means to Me by Hanson
    • Th Nutcracker Suite by The Brian Setzer Orchestra
    • Away in the Manger by The Tom Kubis Big Band
    • Happy Xmas (War Is Over) by John Lennon
    • Wonderful Christmastime by Paul McCartney
    • Like It’s Christmas by the Jonas Brothers (new fave)
  • Getting to wear my Harry Potter pajamas and wearing slippers around the house.
  • Time to bring out the hot chocolate and tea!
  • Making tamales. On my dad’s side we have a family tradition of making (and eating) our own tamales. My favorite are the mole. I absolutely can’t wait.
  • Putting up the Christmas tree and decorations! Last year we got our first real tree, so I can’t wait to do that again!
  • Watching Elf!!! Kick off is Thanksgiving after dinner. My sister, cousin and I go to a Street Food Cinema showing of it as well. So many yummy food trucks to choose from and we watch the movie under the stars, bundled up under blankets.
  • Baking Christmas cookies and decorating them.
  • Being able to pair a scarf with my outfit and breaking out my jackets and sweaters.
  • My sister is home from school and we can hang out and watch the cheesy romantic Christmas movies on Netflix and secretly love them.
  • Other Christmas movies I like to watch:
    • Miracle on 34th Street
    • A Christmas Story
    • It’s a Wonderful Life
  • Seeing all the shops and stores have their own Christmas decorations.
  • When the fireplace is on and it makes the house feel cozy.

What are some of your favorite things to do this time of year?
