Every year, as soon as Thanksgiving dinner leftovers are wrapped up, most people’s attention immediately turns to the next major holiday on the calendar: Christmas. ‘Tis the season, right? A marathon of eating, drinking, and socializing — what’s not to like? If you need a little nudge to get into the holiday spirit (or you’re just looking to get your heart warmed) check out these Christmas friendship quotes. I guarantee you’re going to be hugging your BFF soon.
One of the main tenets of Christmas, whether you’re religious or not, is the spirit of gift-giving. It’s why the holiday season is known for being a little, uh, rough on our wallets, and why Black Friday — the day-after-Thanksgiving consumer bonanza that offers tons of discounts and sales — exists. The National Retail Federation predicts that nearly 148 million Americans plan to shop on the Saturday before Christmas this year, aka Super Saturday, which is also the biggest shopping day of the year.
But while for many folks, the holiday season has turned into a material-based, consumer free-for-all, it’s still originally meant to be about bringing happiness to those closest to us. Christmas cheer, anyone? I don’t know about you, but there’s no one closer to me than my friends — so, to really embody the Christmas spirit, there’s no one better to celebrate than, well, them!
So the next you grumble about the holidays and its toll on your bank account, give your best friend a call and let them know how dope you think they are. There’s nothing more “holiday” than that.
