I wanted to try something that I have seen on YouTube all the time and that is monthly favouties. So let’s just get right into it!
Hot Apple Cider
Omg, I always forget about this drink, until it is handed to me. A warm, sweet , spiced drink is perfect for the holidays. I love it so much. A recipe if you would like to try it: Here
The Hamilton Mixtape
I have never seen The Hamilton Musical, or even listened to the Original Soundtrack. But I was scrolling on Tumblr and found Congratulations performed by Dessa. I fell in love with it so I looked up more of the music and bought the album right away.
Where I live, the theatre is really crappy. Like – really crappy. To go see a movie takes a lot. However, to go see it twice, it has to blow my mind. I loved Moana, and the soundtrack has been playing in my house all month long.
Santa’s Secret Tea
This Tea by David’s Tea is delicious. It is a black tea with pieces of candy cane and sprinkles, the smell is to die for. My sister got me a whole tin for Christmas and I am so happy I can enjoy it all year long.
This Anime movie was amazing! The characters were great, the story was great, and the emotions it pulled out of me was great. I could literally hear Donald next to me gasping and exhaling during the ending. It also shines a light on a community you don’t necessarily think of when you think of Japan. The Homeless. Also has some LGBT+ issues, and over all just an amazing story that will be a new Christmas Classic in my household.
My True Love Gave to Me: 12 Holiday Stories
This book helped me feel the Christmas Spirit, with authors I already knew I loved, plus authors I have just fell in love with. These stories are all well-written and also have diverse topics so I didn’t get bored with any of them.
Jane the Virgin
So I have a love hate relationship with this show. I love the drama, and the over the top issues. I also hate that they always arc over multiple episodes. I love the relatable drama and the influence of Spanish. I started watching this over the summer but didn’t get really into it till this month. And I hate catching up to shows, which means I have to wait till January for new episodes.
Here is my list of December favorites. How was your christmas?
