It’s the most wonderful time of the year! Soompiers, are you feeling festive and ready for Christmas?
Maybe you’re the type of person who counts down the days until Christmas…starting on December 26th. You just can’t contain your holiday excitement!
You can’t help but want to share your Christmas spirit with anyone and everyone! Santa hats all around, Christmas carols all day errday!
Or maybe you’re a bit more on the Grinch-y side of the holiday spectrum. You roll your eyes at all of the lights and tinsel, change the radio station if Christmas music is playing, and you can’t believe kids actually stand in line to see Santa at the mall. Bah, humbug.
No matter how you feel about the holidays, if you enjoy winter sports, you probably can’t wait to get outside and play in the snow!
Especially if you have Lee Min Ho to catch you if you fall…
And there’s nothing like a good ol’ fashioned snowball fight to mess around with your friends or playfully flirt with someone special:
Or maybe you’d rather stay inside, curled up by a warm fire with a cup of hot cocoa:
Plus, if you stay inside, you can also decorate the Christmas tree!
And don’t forget the gifts under the tree! You never know what might be inside… (New K-pop albums? That new Korean beauty product you’ve been wanting to try?)
Unfortunately, you probably won’t find a giant box with your bias hiding under the tree.
And you never know who might be bringing the presents…
Maybe you’re only interested in a very specific kind of holiday celebration…
Christmas can be a romantic time of year — especially in Korea, where Christmas is more of a couple’s holiday.
If you’re lucky, you have someone special with whom you can celebrate the holidays, play in the snow, and warm up inside:
Do you wanna build a snowman~?
Or maybe you’re feeling a little lonely this Christmas, and you’d rather jump headfirst into a snowdrift than see another couple exchanging gifts or cozying up under the mistletoe…
But hey, even if you’re single, celebrating with family and friends can still make Christmas pretty magical! You don’t need a significant other to enjoy festive Christmas decorations, exchange gifts, or stuff your face with Christmas cookies.
And there’s nothing quite like a sugar and eggnog high to liven up the party and get you in the Christmas spirit!
‘Tis the season to be jolly — so get out there and spread some Christmas cheer!
Soompiers, what’s your favorite part of the holiday season?
