Christmas Already?

It’s November, and the holiday season will soon be here! I know it sounds too early to think about the holiday season, but it’s approaching faster than you think. October 31st may be Halloween, but as soon as November 1st rolls around, you can practically hear the holiday jingles. Even since September, Hanukkah and Christmas decor has been stocked on the shelves, but now is when many people actually start thinking about their holiday purchases. A sophomore, Kieran Tully, was very enthusiastic about this time of the year and said, “I’m so excited for the holidays. It’s never too early to start celebrating.”

Of course, we still have Thanksgiving, but the homestretch to the holiday break and the celebrations that come with Christmas are the cornerstones of the holiday season. This year, Hanukkah falls on December 2nd, which is earlier than usual, and like always, Christmas on December 25th. Although far away, big brand companies like Starbucks recently released their annual holiday cups that attract so many customers, and new movies will be released in the upcoming weeks to get everyone in the holiday spirit. It’s never too early to start thinking about the holidays!
