29 Signs It's The Holidays

Everyone has a moment that marks the beginning of the holiday season for them. Whether it's seeing that one movie on TV or getting that yearly call from that one great-aunt (you know, the one who you forget how you're related to her), the signs that 'tis the season are way more personal than just seeing a Christmas tree and menorah set erected in your apartment lobby. It's a mix of simple joys, annoyances, tastes, smells, sounds, and sights that make the holidays what they are. Ahead, we've listed the 29 that really do it for us. Did we miss any?
