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.

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.

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.
