5 Reasons You Should Absolutely Celebrate Christmas in November
Now that you’ve blown out the last jack-o-lantern and eaten all your favorite Halloween candies, it’s time to start decking the halls and celebrating Christmas, even if the calendar only reads November.
Wintery Christmas decorations are objectively adorable. You can’t help but smile when you see a puffy snowman or a rosy-cheeked Santa Claus. From the polar bear to the penguin to the red-nosed reindeer, arctic animals also help to make this season particularly cute. Why deprive yourself of ornaments, nutcrackers, stuffed animals, signs, and other favorite holiday decorations just to adhere to a silly calendar?
Though some scrooges may get irritated at Christmas music, there’s something inherently joyful and irresistible about those favorite holiday songs. From Elvis and Bing Crosby Christmas classics to new records from the likes of She & Him and Kacey Musgraves, there’s a spin on “Rudolph the Red-Nosed Reindeer” for every type of music fan. Plug in and sing along!
No dessert is as versatile as the cookie, and no holiday embraces the cookie better than Christmas. From simple cut-out cookies to classic gingerbread to cool, new cookies, baking and eating cookies is the best part of Christmas. Why hold off cookie parties and showing off your baking skills until December? Your friends will thank you for the November treats, we assure you.
The ugly Christmas sweater has the depths of your closet and taken over the holiday season. There’s no denying the Christmas sweater is the coziest, silliest way to express yourself, so why not break it out in November? As the weather gets progressively colder, you’ll appreciate the warmth.
It’s What Makes You Happy!
If you’re crazy about Christmas, don’t let the haters get you down! Even if you kick off your Christmas celebration as soon as you’re done trick-or-treating, the time between the two holidays is less than 15 percent of the year. Simply put: Do what makes you happiest, even if that means decking the halls and singing “Jingle Bells” before Thanksgiving — we won’t judge.
