Editor’s Corner: Christmas confession Reply

Zac Vierra — Co-Editor-in-Chief

I was born on December 25, 1990. You would think that would automatically make Christmas my favorite holiday. For most of my years growing up, Christmas was at the top of the list. I got double presents (most of the time, but that’s a story for another day) so no holiday could possibly be better.

But I have a confession to make: sorry Christmas, but I have moved on. Thanksgiving is simply better in my eyes. More…
