Three Real Reasons Women Love the Holidays

The leaves are turning, the temperatures are dropping and it’s time to roll the clocks back an hour. All these things are sure signs of the upcoming holiday season. While most women have budgets in place to shop year round, this is the time of the year those budgets go out the window and a handbag comes flying in. Thankfully, this is the season of giving and we use this opportunity to our full advantage. Hosting spectacular holiday dinners at your humble abode and catching as many Black Friday door busters as you possibly can are just some of the reasons for the season.
Food, Laughs and Libations
                One of the biggest holidays during the fall is Thanksgiving Day as many families gather together to eat, drink and share each other’s company. It’s a joyous occasion, but Thanksgivings does take a lot of preparation and time to pull off successfully. Most women enjoy a challenge and what’s a better test of your superwoman capabilities than cooking up a five star meal for your family and friends? Of course there’s a lot of cleaning and organizing involved in getting your home presentable for such a big occasion, but it’s also the perfect time to show off your personal style a little bit. No matter what they say, every woman wants to be viewed as having all of her ducks in a row so throw on that apron and show them what you’re made of by throwing down in the kitchen.

Decorations Galore
                Each passing holiday within this season calls for their own individualized decorations. For Halloween, you may want to create the ultimate haunted house experience by purchasing frightening figurines and spooky cob webs around your front door. Thanksgiving usually makes a person think of the fall and is the perfect time to switch out those bright summer colors for warm, cozy colors. Then the master of all holidays, Christmas Day, when is the one time when it’s perfectly acceptable to assemble faux reindeer and a mechanical Santa on your lawn. This may sound like a lot of work but for us women, it’s more fun than it sounds.

Shopping, Shopping and More Shopping
                Next to diamonds, shopping is a girl’s best friend. We can and will find any excuse to go to the mall and there is no exception during the holidays; in fact, that urge intensifies. Every little thing that catches our eye is a potential gift that someone we know would love. Many stores will run promotions and sales just to get you in the door- we all know the trick; and when something is cheap, we buy as many as our little arms can hold. There’s nothing a woman loves more than a sale so the little to nothing costs of Black Friday door busters are right on time, every time.

In the midst of all these things, you should not forget the true meaning behind the holidays. They are meant to be spent with your loved ones and spread love, cheer and the many gifts you've accrued throughout the season.
