Happy holidays! However you celebrate, I hope you’re enjoying this time of year. There are many things I love about Christmas and wintertime—gift-giving, friendship and family, and sweet treats to name a few. My absolute favorite thing to do, however, is to curl up under a blanket with a good book or movie and some hot chocolate.
Sometimes the book or movie is Christmas-themed, but most of the time, I’m content with whatever book I’m currently reading or a movie that fits my mood. Often, I end up re-reading or re-watching an old favorite—such as The Nightmare Before Christmas, Star Wars, The Avengers, and Percy Jackson. It’s even nicer when I’m with my family, and we can all happily read our books or watch a movie while spending time together. Occasionally, my father will even start a fire in our fireplace, making the atmosphere extra cozy. If I’m feeling extra fancy, I’ll stir a candy cane into my hot chocolate to make it peppermint flavored. If you’re looking for something new to do this season, try it out!
