As we fully descend into December, the Christmas festivities are now in full swing, filling every street corner with decorations, good cheer, and that special Christmas magic.
Christmas means something different to everyone, as there's no one right way to celebrate the holidays. That being said, the signs are a little predisposed to celebrating a certain way. Which signs are more gift oriented, and which want to party? Find out which zodiac personality traits come out the most during the Christmas season.
Aries Gets In Early
The ever-headstrong Aries jumps right into the Christmas season without hesitation. They're determined to purchase nothing but the best gifts and do so early so they aren't panicking when the season's most popular presents have already sold out.
When it gets closer to the big day itself, Aries is a lover of Christmas parties. Whether it's attending or hosting, they use the opportunity to do a little boasting. A healthy amount, of course...'Tis the season to be a bit flashy after all.
Taurus Is A Beacon Of Stability
Everyone knows they can rely on a Taurus this holiday season. If the big Christmas get-together isn't happening at they're own house, they're at least bringing a few big dishes, hoping to relieve everyone else's stress amidst the chaos.
Taurus enjoys seeing their hard work pay off, and Christmas gives them a few avenues to do so. Be it holiday décor, buying the perfect gifts, cooking a large meal, or being an expert present wrapper, they enjoy putting their best foot forward in all they do.
Gemini Is All About The Outings
Christmas parties, holiday markets, winter celebrations, light ceremonies, whatever local or interpersonal event is going on that Gemini can attend, they'll be there. They enjoy seeing the Christmas spirit in a public sense, soaking in other peoples' energies and using that love in the air to fuel them through the new year.
That being said, once January 2nd hits, they tend to really slow down after the November-December rush. If you have a Gemini in your life, maybe check in on them around then.
Cancer Wants To Foster Warmth
Cancer cares deeply about their relationships with others, be they romantic, platonic, or familial. This Christmas, they'll be focused on what would make the holiday special for their loved ones. They care about togetherness and making memories.
They evoke brightly lit fireplaces, cozy staycations, and soft wool winter wear. Cancers will ensure that you have a safe and happy holiday season, which is truly all they care about when it comes to celebrating the holidays!
Leo Is A Driving Force
Leo has a lot of ideas. They take inspiration from the world around them, finding the latest holiday decor trends or seeking out the most delicious recipes to bring to Christmas dinner. This is also the perfect time for Leos to flex their penchant for leadership by taking charge of the holiday planning.
If it's not the family dinner, it's a local fundraiser or planning the best outdoor light layout. Leos will, without a doubt, leave their mark this holiday season.
Virgos Are The Masters Of Aesthetic
Virgo is their name, and decorating is their game. Virgos want nothing more than to make sure their homes are the picture-perfect Christmas wonderland they see in their dreams. Of course, they also want others to relish their setup, so they're likely to host at least one holiday get-together.
With their detail-oriented and perfectionist nature, Virgos will ensure that both their homes and whatever plans they make are executed flawlessly. There's no room for error in a Virgo house, especially during Christmas.
Libras Feel At Ease
Christmas is often a time of generosity. People are more inclined to give back to their community in a number of ways, not to mention the displays of love between friends and family when precious gifts are shared.
This means that Libras are absolutely over the moon this time of year. They get to simply sit and watch good-natured interactions day in and day out. This doesn't mean their Christmas season will be completely drama-free, but their ability to look to the bigger picture and remember all the good fortune taking place will help keep them grounded in the coming weeks.
Scorpio Prefers Solo Celebrations
Scorpios can sometimes find the overbearing weight of the holidays to be a bit much. They're not bah-humbug about it, but they do prefer to keep their Christmas parties on the smaller, quieter side.
What Scorpios won't tell you is that they possess strong emotional intensity as well, which means behind the chilly exterior, they're feeling immense joy in their hearts, elated that they get to spend the season with loved ones.
Sagittarius Says Out With The Old
Sagittarius has no interest in the standard Christmas traditions. Instead, they're obsessed with finding new, fun ways for their circle to celebrate. They refuse to let the season pass without some sort of party amongst friends. If you have a Sagittarius in your life, prepare for an invite soon!
Whatever they come up with, one thing you can be sure of is that it'll be a fun time had by all, as Sagittarius can pinpoint the exact activity that will get all their guests excited.
Capricorn Opens Up
Capricorns are far from the most emotional sign in the zodiac, but they let that hardened front melt away a little when the holidays roll around. Capricorns consider Christmas to be the most socially-acceptable time of year to get a little sentimental, and do so by giving lovingly selected or crafted gifts to the important people in their life.
This is also a time of year when they'll focus heavily on acts of service for others. If you need help putting up lights or decorating your tree, call a Capricorn.
Aquarius Lets Their Individuality Shine
Aquarius prides themself on their uniqueness, and they make sure to use Christmas as an avenue of expression for their fun personality. They're the ones with the over-the-top Christmas fashion, the tiny decorations everywhere they can get away with putting them, and a general brightness about them when the holidays ramp up.
They're confident, happy to spread the best Christmas vibes, and are very particular about who they spend this joyous season with. They have no time for anyone who will dampen their spirit.
Pisces Wants Their Movie Moment
Pisces is already a very emotional sign, which is only heightened during the holidays for all the same reasons listed under Libra. However, instead of using the positive energies of the season to keep themselves steady, they'll use it as a driving force to create the perfect holiday montage of events.
Sipping a mug hot cocoa while watching the snow, a cute (but a little clumsy) ice skating date, giving a gift so lovely the recipient tears up. If you've seen it in a Hallmark movie, Pisces wants to make it happen!
Every Celebration Is Special
What matters most when it comes to Christmas isn't what your sign dictates or how you choose to celebrate, it's the time spent with people you love and the memories you make. Bonds can be made even stronger thanks to the holidays, the prime time to share love however you do so best, so make sure to indulge in that as much as you can.
Spend this season fostering positivity and it'll be given back to you in turn.
