Summer in Vegas is no joke. It’s often over 110 degrees- the kind of heat that makes you want to tear your skin off in the hopes of cooling off a bit. So it’s no wonder why I love the Holiday season- between the cooler weather & the traditions that come along with the Holidays, the season is all about comfort! Here are some of the things I take comfort in during the Holidays.
1. Red cups. I’m sure you’re all nodding along with me at this one- it seems like the Holidays officially start when Starbucks brings out the red cups & offers to fill them with cheer in the form of Peppermint Mochas. Mmmm.
2. Warm blankets, and fuzzy socks. Under normal circumstances, I hate wearing socks. My footwear varies by season between flip flops & Uggs just so I can avoid wearing socks with shoes- my feet are totally claustrophobic. But when I’m just lounging at home & don’t have to wear shoes, fuzzy socks- especially ones with cute decorations or holiday patterns- are the way to go.
3. Christmas songs. I’m that annoying chick who hums Jingle Bells in July, but come December 1, that’s ALL I will listen to. Seriously, I retire all of my non-Holiday CD’s for the month &switch to either my own mini collection of Holiday songs or the radio station that plays them 24/7. I love the songs themselves since they’re so cheerful, but I also love the memories that come with each one. Whether I’m remembering singing “Jingle Bell Rock” at my 6th grade choir concert or chuckling about how Hubby always gets the words wrong to “Baby It’s Cold Outside”, I have a memory for just about every Holiday song out there.
4. Santa Claus. Not just because of the fact that his arrival brings presents, which is awesome enough- but mostly because of the magic. Santa to me is a symbol of the magic that is Christmas: the feeling you got as a kid when you woke up for the millionth time but THIS time, it was late enough to wake everyone up for Christmas; The feeling you got when you opened that gift that year that you were SURE you wouldn’t get but that thanks to Santa’s magic, you cherished for years. &Knowing that now, I get to bring that magic to Shane’s heart, just like my parents did for me.
