When you combine this with the stress of hosting holiday events and finding the perfect gifts for your loved ones, sometimes it can be too easy to forget the reasons to love the holidays.  But to boost everyone’s spirits, here are 5 reasons to love the holidays.

  1. Family and Friends

Getting together with family and friends is what the holidays are all about.  In the midst of all the cooking and cleaning Pantenepreparations, isn’t it nice to know that you’re going to spend time with all of these amazing people?

  1. Whimsical Vibes

Waking up in the morning to snow falling, the nice, crisp air and the Christmas lights aglow, is something special.  This season only comes around once a year and you didn’t let it ruin your hair because you used Pantene Intensely Strong Repair Crème.  It will help you protect hair from breakage and split ends, leaving strands strong against damage without interfering with your regular styling routine. With your hair shinning and the holiday songs humming in the background, you’re sure to keep the festive spirit high.

  1. Good foodFireball 910

Who could forget the good food during holiday dinners?  All types of tasty treats and delectable delights spread out over a large dinner table can put a smile on anyone’s face.  While you’re enjoying all of the tasty treats, you’re festive red lips will stay true because you used COVERGIRL Outlast Longwear Lipstick.

  1. Fresh Air

Yeah, the days are shorter and the air is colder, but that crisp air can make everything feel clean and fresh.   Enjoy the fresh air with snowmen and snowball fights, sleds and sleighs.  Go out and Regenerist Micro-Sculpting Creamenjoy the outdoors and let your skin breath and thrive in drier air, aided by Olay Regenerist Microsculpting Cream.

Plan an evening

To make this month special, pick a day this November and plan an evening.  If you wCOVERGIRL Colorlicious - Seduce Scarletant to go paint the town (and your lips) red with your girlfriends, it’s time to get organized and make plans.  Is there a restaurant you’ve always wanted to try or a movie that you’d love to see?  Be spontaneous and do something fun!

Maybe you’re more in the mood for a romantic dinner with your spouse.  It doesn’t have to be Valentine’s Day or your anniversary to have a special evening.  Pick a candlelit spot and make a reservation for a fancy evening away from home.  It’s always nice to recharge and spend some time together as a couple.

Cover your bases

Get ready

This is the fun part!  Get your makeup kit ready and dress in your best.  COVERGIRL’s Colorlicious lipstick has a colour for every outfit.  With four different colour families to choose from, nudes, reds, pink and plums, you’re sure to look your best for your November night out.
