You know what I love? Reading my horoscope. I especially love that I’m on the border between Aries and Pisces, because then I can read both and squish the best parts together to give myself the ultimate Good Horoscope. On our old blog, Kelly used to write “The Signs As…” posts for pop punk bands, TV shows, girl groups…everything. And I really miss those posts. So Kelly has become our very own personal Christmas angel and has blessed us with The Signs As Christmas Aesthetics. I’m feeling a little more festive already after reading about the potential of my holiday season. May your Christmas be merry & bright…unless you’re a Scorpio or Sagittarius, in which case please let me know you’re still alive in January because holy smokes??
I think we might be able to talk Kelly into making this a monthly thing…convince her in the comments.
