Some of us can deal with the holiday hustle better than others.
It’s the holiday season, which means it’s time for a whole lotta fun. It doesn’t matter if you’re dealing with family drama or fighting the crowds every weekend to make sure you get everything on your list of gifts, there is just something about this time of year that is magical and fun.
However you celebrate, the most important part of it all is surrounding yourself with friends and family. Even when we don’t always have the great relationships with these people, it’s always nice to make an effort for the sake of the holidays and the upcoming New Year.
REMINDER: If it goes horribly wrong, you should always have an extra stash of alcohol to make everyone happy again.
We might all celebrate the holidays differently, but that doesn’t actually mean that we’re all that different. In fact, your zodiac sign probably tells you all you need to know about your holiday habits. Baking, drinking, caroling … your star sign says it all!
More than that, when your friends and family want the BEST holiday cookies or homemade hot cocoa, they know JUST who to call.
But don't get SO stuck to traditions year after year. The holiday season is a time to try something new. Maybe asking that cute guy to take you out for drinks on New Year’s Eve is something you’ve never done before. Maybe you’re going to try to make your own eggnog this Christmas.
Whatever you choose to do this year, try something new, too, so you can come back with an awesome story to tell your friends!
Having a good time is your number one priority and this counts twice as much this holiday season. With so many reasons to celebrate in December alone, you are most likely filling your planner up with all the hottest party details (if you haven’t started partying already).
Aries doesn’t actually need a reason to party, but combining your favorite activity with some serious holiday cheer makes it all the merrier. All these holiday parties are just gearing you up for the biggest party of all this season: New Year’s Eve! That is when you truly shed last year’s skin and get yourself pumped for new experiences.
The holiday season is the ultimate relaxation time for Taurus. You like to reward yourself for a year of busting your butt with some of your favorite holiday treats, especially drinking and eating yourself into a coma.
When the holiday season rolls around, you are most likely sitting on the couch getting comfortable for the next few weeks while everyone around you rushes to get things ready in time for family and friends to celebrate with them. Taurus goes into full-on lazy mode; still pumped for presents and snow, but definitely lazy.
If Gemini doesn’t already travel for the holidays, they have always wondered what it would be like to get away for a week or so and try something different. Especially when family comes to stay with you and inevitably drives you up the wall with their prying questions, you’re probably starting to fantasize about getting away from all the stress the holidays bring.
Even if you just plan a weekend ski trip with your closest friends, this time of the year is perfect for optimal revitalizing for the new year. It is a time to treat you and your friends to something fun, while also giving you the chance to splurge on yourself for a change. Still worried about skipping out on family for a few days? Tell them Santa already paid for the tickets and they’re nonrefundable… sorry!
Cancer has a “no sweat” policy when it comes to the holiday season and flat out refuses to get stressed. That is probably why you’ve been ready since July, isn’t it? Presents have been wrapped, plans have been made, and now all you have to do is make sure the gingerbread cookies don’t burn,
You adore the holidays and you don’t see any reason to wait until the last minute to get it all done. Why? Because you already know the drill and if you want your Christmas card to be flawless again this year, you don’t want to have to worry about buying extra cover-up to hide that acne stress is giving you.
Leo is all about the festivities this year, so you’ll most likely find her jamming along to holiday tunes and getting ready to go caroling with friends. You’ve probably been perfecting your Christmas playlist for months now and no, it isn’t weird to start listening to it on repeat before Thanksgiving.
You also stand firm by your tradition of seeing the local high school’s Christmas play with your family, no matter what. Not only do you love the holiday spirit it puts you in, but you also love the fact that you know the play by heart now… Plus, you always go out for hot chocolate afterward, too.
Only Virgo can get herself into the same situation every year and not know how the holidays can get this stressful. Chances are, you are probably in worry mode right now, trying to make sure that everything goes smoothly this year. You might have a huge checklist to help you out, but that doesn’t mean that planning is any easier for you.
In times like these, it’s best for Virgo to just slow down, drink some eggnog, and start assigning everyone tasks; you’re not the boss for nothing, after all! Remind everyone who’s in charge and take some of the stress off your shoulders for once. That way, YOU can be the one relaxing while everyone else does the worrying.
The holiday season can be a lot of fun for a Libra, but it is also a time for them to give back to those in need. Your generous and selfless nature isn’t put on hold just because you are taking a break to spend time with family and friends. In fact, this is your time to shine and bring some much-needed holiday cheer to those who could use it the most.
Whether you volunteer at a shelter, feed the homeless, or put together a gift drive in your area, you are doing some serious good in your community. You know that there are people who don’t see this time of year as happy or plentiful, so you aim to bring just a little more positivity to their lives. You go, girl! Everyone appreciates your seasonal mission.
Maybe it’s the change of seasons or maybe Scorpio is just embracing the holiday spirit, but there is something about this time of year that makes you act totally lovey-dovey. You are most likely putting mistletoe all around your house (and on yourself, wink wink) and letting yourself feel the love.
Of course, you’ll absolutely still get laid at the annual Christmas party (in your Santa hat, no less), but you also don’t mind just smooching under the mistletoe, too. Scorpio is definitely passionate about the holidays and you would probably celebrate every single one of them if you had the time!
The holidays are all about spending time with friends for a Sagittarius and that is exactly what you plan on doing this year. Whether that means decorating the Christmas tree while drinking champagne, or ice skating and flirting with cute guys, you and your friends are attached at the hip all season long.
As long as you are with your girls, you will be in the holiday spirit from the time Thanksgiving is over until the ball drops on New Year’s Eve. The only thing you planned on this season is having a good time and you definitely intend to stick to it.
Nothing is more important to a Capricorn than spending the holidays with their family. You feel the holiday spirit the most when you’re surrounded by everyone, including your annoying little cousins you only see once a year. All that matters is that the whole family comes together to celebrate the holidays.
You’ve spent a lot of time finding the perfect gifts for your family and you can’t wait to bond around the fireplace for a whole week. This time of the season is your favorite way to recharge your batteries for the new year. You make sure to spend time with friends, too, but you really look forward to seeing family.
Aquarius loves the holiday season, but what she is really looking forward to is the start of a new year. You most likely already have your New Year’s resolutions written out, and you’re ready to kick next year’s ass.
You find that looking towards the future is the best way to stay positive, even though you are still excited about opening presents and eating your weight in Christmas cookies. The New Year is your time to shine, and you look forward to a blank slate and new possibilities. Until then, you spend time with friends, family, and a whole lot of champagne.
Pisces absolutely loves the holiday season because she gets to do all of her traditional holiday favorites. That means watching holiday movies 24/7, baking every Christmas cookie her oven will allow, and wrapping presents for all her friends and family. The best part about your enthusiasm is that you can make any Scrooge get into the holiday spirit, too.
You are most likely finishing up your holiday to-do list right now since you could barely wait until after Thanksgiving to get started on it (spoiler alert, you actually started planning for Christmas right after Halloween). It doesn’t matter to you how you spend the holidays, as long as you still get to make a gingerbread house and wear your favorite ugly sweater for an entire week.
