With Christmas near, students and staff have ways of spreading holiday cheer

Ashley Reimund and Jackie Whitaker match sweaters and get excited for Christmas.

  From extraordinary Christmas sweaters to matching pajamas with friends and family, students and staff get excited for the holidays with what they wear.

   ”My favorite go-to holiday outfit would be something handmade, including a tree skirt, leggings and socks. The more, the merrier,” RootEd counselor Bobbi Swisher said. Swisher is known for wearing festive holiday attire all season long.

     With the joy of spreading holiday cheer, staff have an idea of what they want their outfit to say for all to hear.
  “I want people to think ‘oh my gosh, it screams Santa’’” life skills teacher Jackie Whitaker said.

    The dress code for Christmas should once again be, the more the merrier” Swisher said.

      Even with the many color options, some can be better than others for the holiday season. 

   “Overall, Christmas is usually based on reds, golds, yellows, greens, whites, silvers, and sometimes black too. However, you can usually just wear whatever as long as something Christmasy is on it somewhere, I usually just go with the basic Christmas colors,” sophomore Chloey Brazel said. 

     Though a festive outfit may bring the flair, students and staff also use their accessories to show their holiday spirit. 

    Swisher has some favorite accessories, including anything that lights up.”

     Even though there are many options of places to shop, staff have their preferences of where they go to get festive attire. 

   “Clearance at a store like Walmart, or things from the year before,” paraprofessional Ashley Reimund said. 

    With Christmas break coming soon, students and staff are ready to start their traditions with their families. 

   “The main tradition I have is that I always wear a different christmas onesie to school on the last two or three days before christmas break. Also, me and my family always wear our matching Christmas pajamas and drink hot cocoa on Christmas,” Brazel said. 

    Even though  festive fits can be fun, it can make it more exciting to match with someone. 

   “I often match with someone one to two days in the Christmas season during school, usually with close friends.” Brazel said. 

    Tis the season for all to rock ugly sweaters all day, everyday. Some students embrace the ugly Christmas sweater trend.

   “Me and my family like to buy supplies and make ugly sweaters together with a lot of hot glue, shiny things, and staying up late. I have yet to make one for this year.” Brazel said. 

    A festive outfit could affect spirit and cheer. 

    “Because it can spread christmas cheer, the best way to spread christmas cheer is singing loud for all to hear” Whitaker said quoting the movie “Elf.”
