Top 10 Reasons Why December is the Best Month

‘Tis the season! Now that the Thanksgiving festivities have passed, we have entered the best time of the year. Without a doubt, December is the best month and here are ten reasons why (in no particular order):

1. Lights

From tree lightings to city streets and decorated houses, Christmas lights are a sure way to bring a smile to your face and brighten your day!

2. Movies

Freeform’s 25 Days of Christmas and Hallmark’s Christmas Movie Classics are practically staples during the month of December.

3. Music

Take your pick from Michael Buble, Mariah Carey, Justin Bieber, or even *NSYNC, there’s something for everyone. Christmas music will definitely put you in the spirit!

4. Snow

As Lorelai Gilmore would say, “Everything’s magical when it snows. Everything looks pretty.”

6. New Year

December marks the end of a year. Time to reflect on the good, the bad, the ugly, and starting fresh! New Year, new me as we all say. Plus, New Year’s Eve parties are always the best.

From peppermint mochas, to peppermint bark, candy canes, lotions, candles, and everything in between, December is here to fulfill all of your wildest peppermint dreams.

8. Taylor Swift’s Birthday

If you ever wondered why the queen of pop music’s lucky number is 13, look no further. December 13 is her day, and in my opinion that just gives us more reason to celebrate this wonderful month! #allhailthequeen

9. Starbucks Red Cups

With 12 different options this year, Starbucks has changed the game in spreading holiday cheer with their iconic red cup designs. I don’t know about you, but this is like my version of Pokemon: Gotta catch ‘em all!
