My love/hate relationship with the winter holidays..

When I think of December, I think of holidays. That makes me think of great deals before Christmas and after Christmas. It also makes me think of the New Year, which makes me reflect on this year that is just about to pass... I think of warm hot chocolate and cookies as well as snow lightly falling outside my window. I think of giving. I think of helping someone out or just giving someone something as simple as a heartwarming smile.  Sounds sweet doesn't it?

Wellllll, not so much: I love the holidays but at the same time I hate the holidays. See my list of reasons below.

I love the christmas holidays because:
  1. Of the atmosphere of the holiday season. Everything from the decorations in the malls and shopping centres to the holiday cheer.
  2. This is the time to relax and enjoy the company of family & friends.
  3. You can great shopping deals!
  4. Winter is here; out come the cozy parkas, hats, mittens and scarves!
  5. I love winter fashion (but hate the snow!).
  6. Might tie into the first point but .. I love that it is the time of GIVING!

What I hate about the christmas holidays:
  1. That I feel like I am compelled to buy items that I don't even need because of the amazing sales (BAHAH!).
  2. I want to buy EVERYTHING that is on sale and I can't because I am not a millionaire.
  3. The snow.
  4. Angry and impatient people.
  5. That the year is ending...
  6. I become so lazy after all the time I have off that it is hard to get back into the swing of things.
  7. Lineups everywhere!
  8. The cold weather that comes with it... CANADA is like the North Pole, mind you.
  9. Did I mention.. snow?

So that is my love/hate relationship with the winter/christmas holidays. I love it, yet I hate it..what can I say? I can be hard to please sometime! (I'm a Fall baby, what do you expect?! LOL).

What do you LOVE or HATE about the holidays? Have you done your Christmas shopping? Or are you a "last minute shopper" ?

Happy Holidays Everyone!
