Episode 45: Do's and Don't's of Christmas

Christmastime is here, happiness and cheer. Except, not always. There are some Christmas traditions (we're looking at you, matching Christmas pajamas) that don't always evoke warm and fuzzy feelings. This week, we're dissecting the do's and don't's of Christmas because we've got some big feelings on how we spend this beloved season. Some traditions we peacefully agree on, but some evoke a spirited discussion. Tune in and then share your big feelings on our big feelings over on Instagram.

  1. Net lighting
    1. KA- Take it or leave it.
    2. KB- Vehemently opposed to the nothin' but net.
  2. Opening a gift on Christmas Eve
    1. KA- No thanks, I'm not 7.
    2. KB- NO (yes, in ALL CAPS).
  3. Traveling on the actual holiday
    1. KA- It's a necessary evil.
    2. KB- Car travel, permissible. Place travel, ugh. Gross.
  4. Decorating before Thanksgiving
    1. KA- Normally, this is a strict DON'T but sometimes you have to break your own rules and whip out the Christmas decor on a hot November day to lift your spirits.
    2. KB- Why stress yourself out after Thanksgiving if you have ample time to do it before?
  5. Wrapped trees
    1. KA- THE BIGGEST NO OF ALL THE NO'S. Unless you're going to wrap evert branch individually, don't even bother.
    2. KB- Sure, why not, as long as it's not net lighting.
  6. Going to an establishment on Christmas Day
    1. KA- I'd like to stay cozy inside a home all day, thank you very much.

    1. KA- Yes, please! Tell me all about everything that has happened to you and everyone in your family this year.
    2. KB- If I want to know what happened, I'll find you on social media. Just send me a picture.
  8. Sharing your Christmas list
    1. KA- Only with family members, otherwise, surprise me. Or reference one of the many gift guide episodes we've done for inspiration...
    2. KB- Ditto.
  9. Pop Christmas songs
    1. KA- If it's not an old timely, crackly, grainy quality Christmas song, I don't want it.
    2. KB- I live for Harry Styles singing me some Christmas carols.
  10. Santa wrapping gifts
    1. KA- Nope. 3 unwrapped gifts from Santa is the protocol.
    2. KB- No wrapping. Period.
