What You Love Most About the Holidays, Based on Your Zodiac Sign

Just because you love holiday season doesn't mean you appreciate the same parts of it as everyone else.

While some people might love giving gifts, others may prefer the ugly Christmas sweaters or checking out festively lit houses. What part of Christmas resonates most closely with you? Scroll down to your zodiac sign below to find out.

Aries (March 21 – April 19): The Holiday Cheer

Outgoing and passionate Aries is totally in their zone when the people around them are feeling just as energetic and optimistic as they are. That's why you can't get enough of the warm, fuzzy sensation that people get around the holidays. Everyone is in good spirits and has more spring in their step than usual, and you just can't get enough of that shared, joyous feeling.

Taurus (April 20 – May 20): The Holiday Meal

Taurus loves to be pampered and to indulge a bit every once in a while, and the holidays are the perfect opportunity to do both. Every year, you allow yourself to completely let loose during that massive holiday meal with the family. You don't hold yourself back, and since these aren't foods that you get to eat very often, you're going to make every bit count.

Gemini (May 21 – June 20): The Presents

While everyone loves receiving presents, Gemini's duality allows them to get a little bit more out of the exchange because they love giving presents as well. You're friendly and sociable, and you tend to really know and understand the people who are closest to you, so you're really good at buying presents they'll love. The smile on their face when they open something that's perfect for them is a gift in itself.

Cancer (June 21 – July 22): Quality Time With Family

Cancer is a sensitive sign who thrives best when they have loved ones around to share their feelings with, so they truly appreciate the way the holidays can bring a family together. Sometimes, it means reuniting with beloved relatives who live far away. Other times, it just means reconnecting with the family you've had all along. The combination of relaxing time off and the festivity of the season might mean it'll be easier to relate to them than ever.

Leo (July 23 – Aug. 22): The Holiday Glitter

Big-hearted, attention-loving Leo adores everything flashy about holiday season. You love that Christmastime gives you the excuse to wear glitzy clothes and mounds of glitter everywhere you go. Not only do you prefer to stand out in a crowd, but ornate style also brings out your most confident self. And not only can you continue wearing all of that shiny glitter into the new year, but that self-assured feeling will carry you all the way through the first few months of the following year.

Virgo (Aug. 23 – Sep. 22): Festive Decorations

Virgo has a keen eye for precision and aesthetic, and they cherish the sight of a beautifully decorated home, Christmas tree or gingerbread house. Whenever you see a majestic house lined with perfect string lights, it brings pure joy to your heart.  And since you know that the white snow, fir trees and twinkling lights won't be here to stay, you stop to appreciate them all the more.

Libra (Sep. 23 – Oct. 22): Holiday Music

Friendly and peace-loving Libra loves a good holiday jingle. You're the type of person who starts blasting Christmas music on Nov. 1, eager for everyone else to join in your deep adoration for the season. You purposely hang out in public places that you know will be blasting seasonal tunes, and have a festive Spotify playlist at the ready for every occasion. Even a job in retail won't be able to drive out your love for music full of holiday spirit.

Scorpio (Oct. 23 – Nov. 21): Bundling Up By the Fireplace

Scorpio doesn't like to admit it, but they secretly love holiday season. When it comes to appreciating this time, you like to keep things on the DL, so you typically stay home getting comfy and cozy. Few things bring you more happiness than wearing something fluffy, drinking something hot and staying by the fireplace to get extra toasty. No matter how antisocial you may act, people will probably join you—which is all a part of your master plan.

Sagittarius (Nov. 22 – Dec. 21): Ugly Christmas Sweaters

Sagittarius is fun-loving and celebrates every occasion to the maximum, so they'll be all about ugly Christmas sweaters. The uglier, sillier and more festive they are, the better, because they allow you to share a little part of your personality with the world at a glance. You also love to make other people participate with you. Even if they do it begrudgingly at first, you almost always win them over because you're so lovable.

Capricorn (Dec. 22 – Jan. 19): Corny Holiday Movies

Capricorn loves consistency in their life, and every year they look forward to enjoying their favorite classic holiday movies for the thousandth time. These films have been a part of your life for as long as you can remember, and the cornier the movie is, the more you love how different it is from anything that comes out today. You're a stickler for tradition, and you plan to pass down the tradition of old-school Christmas movies to everyone you know.

Aquarius (Jan. 20 – Feb. 18): The Christmas Tree

Aquarius is the nature-lover of the zodiac, and they're obsessed with bringing a little piece of the outdoors into their home every winter in the form of a Christmas tree. You love that fresh pine scent more than anything else associated with the holiday, and chances are you have a tradition of decorating it with your family every year. The look (and smell) of that tree fill you with holiday spirit every time you glance at it.

Pisces (Feb. 19 – March 20): Time Off From School

As much as Pisces loves everything about the actual holiday celebrations, what they really treasure is the break from the obligations in their life. More than any other sign, you need some space from your responsibilities to recharge every once in a while so that you don't burn out. That couple of weeks away from school at the end of the year will make you feel like a new person—and the gifts, food and family will be the cherry on the top.
