The holiday season always calls for fun things to do and fun words to say. Fun things like singing Christmas carols, donating presents and toys, baking cookies (not burning them), building a snowman (if there’s snow around), writing letters to Santa (yes, Santa is real), and taking a picture with Santa Claus (proof that he is real). Fun words like jingle bells, mistletoe, frosty the snowman, all I want for Christmas is a pair of cute socks, merry Christmas ya filthy animal, and be sure to drink your Ovaltine.

On the other hand, the holiday season also always calls for merry, heartwarming messages to friends and loved ones. This sweet gesture, in a way, reminds us that there is a glow of light, love, and positivity around the world. That there is magic in Christmas. You just have to see it and believe it. So don’t ever forget to spread some Christmas cheer by saying nice, gentle, kind things to those around you. Happy holidays.
