Well I don't know you but I'm certainly in the Christmas spirit. After losing power for four days, I'm ready to be in a good mood, heck, I'm ready to act like a kid. Today, The Daily Tay and I have partnered for the link up: You're Always A Kid On Christmas. Grab the button below, and link up your favorite Christmas memories, old pics, or what makes you act like a kid again.

I act like a kid as often as I can, as evidenced by this post. But especially around the holidays, it's perfectly acceptable. Any excuse for me to act like I'm six or under, I'll take it.
So here's how I always act like a kid on Christmas:

– I will use any excuse to wear a tacky/ugly Christmas sweater. Better yet, I really just want to wear a Santa hat or reindeer ears.

My reindeer ears read “Helene” and I'm also rocking a onesie, so winning, clearly.

-I order the sweetest hot drinks. Hot chocolate with marshmallows, spiced apple cider. This time I just add a little alcohol. Then I really start acting childish.

– If I see Santa, I'm still sitting on his lap. He needs to know what I want for Christmas.

– Tear through Christmas presents without caution. That pretty paper? Consider it ripped.

 -I still FREAK OUT over gifts I really really wanted. This pic is of me (missing a tooth) getting giddy over my Elvis CD. I loved him. I used to tell people when I go to heaven I would marry him, but that's a blog post for a different day.

– I gasp at all the pretty lights on the houses and on my own Christmas tree. I even get a little teary eyed.

– Boss my little sisters around and remind them that I'm still older then them. (Wait, I do that year round.)

Are you jealous of my dress? You should be.

-When it gets really close to Christmas, I get sad that it's over. I mean, I know it will come again next year, but I just can't help but be sad the best time of the year is coming to a close.

– I will make a snow angel at the slightest glimmer of snow.

 – I will eat all of the candy and holiday-themed desserts immediately. Just put them in my mouth and start chomping.

– On Christmas morning, I check and see if presents are there and then run around the house yelling, “Santa came!!” Yes, I'm 26.

As I get older, I appreciate the times when I get to act like a little kid. It brings back memories of being a kid and Christmas day being the best day of the year. Christmas is magical, you can act whatever age you want, and some how things in the world seem alright.
