12 Signs You’re Ready for Christmas

It's officially November, and while most people are settling into the brisk winds of fall, savoring their pumpkin spice lattes and planning for friendsgiving, some are more focused on one thing: Christmas. (Hint: it’s me.)

And no, I’m not *just* talking about the holiday. I’m talking about the season, aka the most wonderful time of the year. For some of us, that means breaking out endless strings of lights, listening to Bing Crosby, and decorating our trees as soon as possible. If any of these symptoms apply to you, you may be suffering from early onset Christmasitis.

Frosted cranberry, pine, cinnamon… The list goes on and on. Do we really *need* to buy another candle? Probably not. But we do it anyway.
