It’s that time of year again! Just walk into the mall, and you will be hit with all the Christmas spirit you could imagine from holiday sales and Christmas displays to all the best-known carols playing over the radio. What part of this season do you enjoy the most?
One of the greatest aspects of the holiday season is how vast and varied the celebrations and traditions are, meaning that there is something for everyone. What you enjoy most about the season is a direct reflection of your personality. If you’re a complete introvert you likely enjoy the quieter moments, taking in the peace and joy of the season from the comfort of your own home. Meanwhile, extroverts live for the big parties, Santa Claus parades and other over the top celebrations. Whatever it is, the magic of Christmas is available for everyone!
It is for this reason that your zodiac sign can reveal a great deal about what gets you excited for the arrival of the Christmas season. With each of the zodiac signs associated with a set number of personality traits and characteristics, astrologists are empowered to make some incredibly accurate predictions on what you may be looking forward to.
What’s your favorite part of the Christmas season, according to your zodiac sign? Read on to find out…
Aries (Mar 21 – Apr 19)
When you hit the mall for your Christmas shopping, you aren’t looking to take your time or feel out what may or may not be available. No, you’re that gift giver that always gives the hottest, most popular items that everyone is looking for. It’s not that you actually care that much about what you’re giving really. The truth is that as soon as it becomes known that you’ll ‘never get your hands on this toy’ because it’s the hottest thing to hit the market, you are instantly driven to prove everyone wrong. After all, no one stops you, right?
Taurus (Apr 20 – May 20)
The holidays are a time of chaos and disorganization for many. There is nothing you enjoy more during the Christmas season than knowing that you can create a stable, loving home environment for everyone to come together and celebrate. You’re the one that throws Christmas dinner, dressing your house up to the nines and cooking a meal that would blow the world away. You know it’s going to take some hard work and dedication, but your reward is the chance to see everyone’s faces as they sit down together and enjoy the fruits of your labor.
Gemini (May 21 – Jun 20)
You’re a social butterfly, so it should come as no surprise that there is nothing more exciting to you during the holiday season than the parties. Your schedule is likely packed solid through November and December, trying to attend as many parties as physically possible. To some, this sounds exhausting, but you feed off the energy of those around you. This high will continue right through your New Years celebrations but prepare yourself for the crash that will come when everything is over, and life slows back down again.
Cancer (Jun 21 – Jul 22)
Well-known for your highly sensitive and compassionate nature, you adore the focus that comes during this holiday season on spending time with friends, family and loved ones. To be completely honest, it doesn’t matter what you’re doing during this time, as long as you are together. While others may try to avoid family dinners and get-togethers, they bring warmth and joy to your heart. You’ll be there with a smile on your face, making the most of every second and creating memories that you will treasure for years to come.
Leo (Jul 23 – Aug 22)
A natural born leader, you aren’t about to leave anything in the hands of those around you. For this reason, you’re not just attending holiday celebrations, you ensure that you’re the one leading the charge. I’m not talking about small family gatherings. You’re organizing your neighborhood tree lighting or planning a massive toy drive for your local children’s shelter. You have a ‘go big or go home’ attitude combined with a determination that nothing is going to stop you – the result? You make sure that every holiday season you make your mark in a big way. The best part? Others are inspired by your efforts, creating a positive ripple effect that will benefit countless people.
Virgo (Aug 23 – Sept 22)
There is no house that is more beautifully and meticulously decorated than yours, from your breathtaking Christmas tree to the detail in the decorations on your mantlepiece. There’s no denying the fact that it’s Christmas the second you walk into your house, a fact you take great pride in. However, be careful that you don’t cross the line from decorating because you love it into being a complete and over the top perfectionist, denying yourself all the joy that you once felt in doing it. This is your thing, don’t allow anyone to take that away including your own mind.
Libra (Sept 23 – Oct 22)
A holiday season that is built on the notion of peace, happiness and joy couldn’t be a better fit for your personality. You spend all year working on bringing balance and harmony to the world around you, but this is one time of year where you can enjoy it for a change. Now, don’t completely let your guard down – you’re going to come against your fair share of family drama that will require your magic touch, but as long as you can stay on top of that you will be able to sit back and truly enjoy the time. Peace on Earth and Goodwill to Men!
Scorpio (Oct 23 – Nov 21)
While everyone else is busy focusing on family time and holiday spirit, you’ve got a ‘naughty twist’ to the holiday season in mind. You’re not worried about picking up the latest children’s toy or holiday movie. Instead, you’re likely going to put on your Santa hat and turn ‘Santa Baby’ on the radio. Try not to spend the whole holiday season locked in your bedroom. After all, your family likely still wants you to show up to your family Christmas dinner. Just make sure you put a little more clothing on first…
Sagittarius (Nov 22 – Dec 21)
You’re not interested in being forced to subscribe to some long-standing Christmas tradition, that will get boring way too quickly. Instead, you’re going to seek out any opportunity to try something new and exciting. This could mean taking a big trip to celebrate the holidays somewhere international or simply introducing some practices and traditions from other cultures into your own celebrations at home. Others may try to convince you to change your mind at first but stick to your guns. They will come around in time, and the new experience will help to expand their minds.
Capricorn (Dec 22 – Jan 19)
Not exactly one to be mistaken for the ‘emotional’ type, you aren’t about to let that rob you of the holiday spirit – after all, deep down you’re a sentimental person, you just hide it well. Put your love for knowledge and craftsmanship to work. Your outdoor Christmas lights are a great opportunity to show off your skills, introducing new, creative and impressive displays that will blow your neighbors away. There is nothing you’re not capable of bringing to life. Whether you’re programming your lights to music or building a life-sized Santa’s sleigh, you’ll take great pride in your final result.
Aquarius (Jan 20 – Feb 18)
Embracing your quirky and unique personality, you love that the holiday season gives you the opportunity to really embrace all that makes you such an individual. You spend this time rocking your favorite ‘ugly Christmas sweater’, or a full our 3-piece Christmas suit, singing along with the Christmas carols on the radio turned up as high as you can. You’re not worried about if others think you’re a little crazy, after all, you’re always seen as a little ‘odd’ regardless of what time of year. The only difference now is that you can explain it all away as ‘getting into the Christmas season’. Enjoy it and don’t allow anyone to put a damper on your fun.
Pisces (Feb 19 – Mar 20)
Always the dreamer and a lifelong romantic, your favorite part of the Christmas season is the magic and love that this time of year brings. You’re the one that will happily curl up with a cup of hot cocoa, a fire in the fireplace and a movie marathon of Hallmark movies. While others see them as cheesy and overly predictable, you love every sappy moment. If you’re in a relationship, you’re likely trying to recreate your own Hallmark moments, walking through the local light displays hand in hand. If you’re single, you’re dreaming of that moment. Don’t worry, your time will come.
