I started reading The Gloss last summer, when my boyfriend introduced me to the site, saying, “You’re going to love this website. They write about the same things you like and have the same sense of humor as you do.” He was right! When I saw a post about Farrah’s baby daddy (of 16 & Pregnant fame), I knew I had stumbled upon kindred spirits. When I saw The Gloss was looking for interns, I jumped at the chance to work there.

I do love this time of year and all the wonderful things that go along with it: decorating the tree, the smell of a pine and delicious baked goods, excellent Christmas movies on TV, amazingly bad Lifetime Christmas movies, making fun of holiday cards, especially if they feature an awkward picture of a funny-looking family, laughing at religious nuts who get grouchy about being told “Happy Holidays” instead of “Merry Christmas,” laughing at stores that go out of their way to be overly secular, laughing at families who make it their mission to have the most lights and humongous snow-globes on the block, admiring pretty and tastefully decorated houses, constantly editing my wish list (I’m not too old!), presents, building fires in the fireplace, hoping for snow, etc. I could go on and on.
