Christmas Traditions, Ranked by Lesbianism

Christmas is nearly right here, and whether or not you’re the sort that received your buying accomplished in October or the sort that’s scrambling proper this second, it may be a hectic time of 12 months. What brings me pleasure this season is pondering of absolutely the cherub that’s my niece, her pleasure for presents, and her laughter at her favourite Christmas motion pictures.

I additionally, as it’s possible you’ll know, love to take a position about what’s and isn’t homosexual. I name it reclaiming, or perhaps it’s simply straight-up claiming. There are such a lot of Christmas traditions, so many which are fairly straight and a few which are reasonably homosexual. So, I’m rating them from straight to sapphic, and naturally, justifying my solutions.


9. It’s a Great Life rewatch

I ought to preface this by saying I’ve by no means seen this film. However, I do know sufficient about it to understand it’s heterosexual propaganda. Actually any film with a straight white man because the lead can’t be giving very a lot lesbian power to start with, so this custom is one which I’m labeling as bitingly hetero.

8. Making Grandma’s well-known cookies

Gingerbread cookies are the cookie of the season. I used to make them on a regular basis with my mother and make up little tales about every cookie. This can be a pretty innocuous custom. It’s not explicitly homosexual or straight, it simply form of is.

7. Adorning the Christmas tree

As I put this record collectively, I’m realizing that many of those traditions are a bit of fruity, together with this one. What’s extra homosexual than placing little do-it-yourself trinkets and photos of your child self on a tree that you’ve got adorned with shiny lights? This was my most beloved custom, however then I grew to become an edgy teenager and thought I used to be above it very like many people do. Adorning the tree is nearly having a fairly centerpiece, which is how I look to consider homosexual individuals: the point of interest in a room of averageness.

6. Singing alongside to Christmas music

This custom is separate from caroling as a result of it’s accomplished alone or along with your chosen household. You sing with abandon, brazen and daring, not caring that you just missed a notice. A homosexual particular person that may sing is the focal point, as they wish to be, throughout this vacation season. I’ve already ranked basic Christmas songs by their lesbian power, so placed on Let it Snow – Boyz II Males ft. Brian McKnight and get to singin!

5. Caroling

Singing is homosexual. Utilizing your voice to precise splendor for the season is simply actually homosexual, I don’t know what else to inform you. The act of caroling is very queer since you’re going to stranger’s homes and spreading the gospel along with your little runs and trills. It’s simply so…a lot! so additional!

4. Sipping scorching cocoa/mulled wine/cider by the fireplace

Image this: you might be within the coziest cream sweater ever made. Standing by a window frosted over with ice crystals, a mug in hand, steam nuzzling your nostril as you burrow deeper into the wealthy cashmere. A hearth roars behind you. That is homosexual. Why? As a result of it’s all concerning the sensations. The smells, the style, the contact, the sounds. Very gay!

3. Making snow angels

When you have the impulse to leap right into a mound of snow and lay there, wiggling your legs and arms to make an…angel? You’re homosexual.

2. Wrapping presents and buying/making presents

Regardless of the “girls be buying” joke, I really feel like lesbians love handmaking presents greater than they love shopping for them. This isn’t to say we by no means store, hell, I do! However one thing about handmaking a present after which fastidiously wrapping it, tying it with a bow, and labeling it along with your greatest script is a queer custom at coronary heart.

1. Kissing below the mistletoe

I feel making up an excuse to kiss somebody is fairly dykey. Like “oh, would you have a look at that! There’s a plant above our heads, guess we must always um…lock lips or no matter :)” That is for the form of lesbian that isn’t courageous sufficient to ask “can I kiss you?” or isn’t studying the I need to kiss you physique language from their date very nicely. Kissing in your outsized Christmas sweater on the occasion is giving first homosexual Hallmark film and I form of adore it.


I notice I’ve overlooked many traditions on this one, so inform me, what’s the gayest Christmas custom you possibly can consider?
