Christmas Eve is Coming Soon!


Subhadra M., Staff Writer

     It isn’t just Christmas Eve that’s coming soon. Holidays like Kwanzaa, Boxing Day, and Hanukkah are just around the corner! The wintry magic is kicking in as we jump right into the last month (can you believe it?) of the year: December.

     There are so many ways to celebrate this holiday season. For one, there are lots of holiday movies you could watch. Home Alone, Elf, The Grinch, and The Santa Clause are some of my personal favorites. One could never do with too much cheer! In addition to movies, there are also some great songs to fill you with warm holiday fuzziness. Take for example “Deck the Halls.” It’s quite the sensation with holiday songs. Perhaps do yourself some good with “Jingle Bells” or the ever-popular “Feliz Navidad!”

     Of course, you could always decorate your home for your holiday(s). You could put up a menorah for Hanukkah, or haul in a Christmas tree. Maybe get out your Kinara for Kwanzaa. Tinsel wreaths and a little bit of holly around the house would never hurt. The smells of mint and cinnamon, perhaps through some scented candles, would be a good way to appeal to more than one of your five senses. Help yourself remember that this is a time of festivity!

     This year has been hard for so many people. A little ray of happiness is much needed for everyone. Though this holiday season won’t be quite the same as past ones, it’s safe to say that we can make it just as meaningful.
