It’s that special time of year. The air gets cold, we all dress up and we have to start taking care of ourselves.
Yes, the Halloween and Thanksgiving seasons are great leads to the Christmas season, but it’s super important to stay aware of your health.
I was recently cast in Company here on campus. It was an excellent experience full of wonderful people and learning opportunities. But almost every person in the cast was hit with a horrible sickness. This is why it is important to stay clean this holiday season.
Make sure you sanitize your hands as much as possible and be sure to bundle up when it’s cold outside. Don’t be the person walking to class in shorts when it’s 30 degrees. Your peers’ health is just as important as your own, so do what you can to keep yourself and those around you healthy.
Other than sickness during the holiday season, Thanksgiving approaches after spooks during Halloween. So let’s start this great debate of the proper time to start celebrating the Christmas season and when we can start listening to Christmas music.
If you’re anything like me, you’re listening to Christmas music the day after Halloween. I know that some of you probably are mumbling nasty words under your breath, but I have to come clean. Christmas music is my favorite kind of music.
Not only are there different genres of Christmas music, but there are a number of artists who all do the same songs in different ways. It keeps the music fresh and does a great job of getting me into the spirit of the giving season.
All of that being said, I’m a little more conservative than most when it comes to Christmas music. I know some students on campus who have been listening to Christmas music since Oct. 1. To those people, I must scoff. Halloween ends up getting nearly overlooked, and listening to Christmas music that early can make you get used to it. You don’t want to be sick of the Christmas season before it gets here.
If you find yourself struggling to find some good Christmas music, I have the best artists that I think you’ll enjoy. Try listening to Michael Bublé, The Carpenters, Pentatonix, Seth Macfarlane, and The Beach Boys.
Those are all of my favorites to listen to during Christmas time. They’re a little old school, I know, but still good.
As the Christmas season approaches, don’t forget that we still have Thanksgiving. Yes, it’s fun to get into the Christmas season, but don’t forget to be thankful as we get closer to the holiday for thankfulness.
