The Most Wonderful Time of the Year

The Most Wonderful Time of the Year

Guys! In two short days it will finally be December and do you know what December means? Christmas! I love the Holiday Season altogether (Halloween, Thanksgiving, Christmas, and New Year), but I have to be honest and say that the December holidays are my very favorite.


This time of year is the best because it’s usually when families come together to engage in fun holiday activities and to just be together for the sake of being together. All of the fun things that come with Christmas only happen once a year, so I always try to make the most of it!


Here I have for you an epic list of all things Christmas to help you plan ahead and make the most of this Christmas. Enjoy!

So, keep an eye out for those!
