I keep seeing clickbait posts from various sources (that I won’t give the satisfaction of linking to) outlining all the things women (it’s always women) should and shouldn’t do, wear, and have after certain milestone ages like 25 or 30. It would seem one of the things we shouldn’t have is joy.

So, you’re moving. Fun! No, wait. The opposite of that. Moving sucks, but there are things you can do to make it suck maybe a little less.

At this time of year, we all have our traditions. From how you decorate the tree, to just how much Bailey’s to put in your hot chocolate when your family goes out to gawk at Christmas lights, there are the little rituals that let you know it’s really Christmastime.
