I Explained Why I Don't Like Christmas On The New Episode Of "See Something Say Something"

*spoilers* It's a bit Grinch-y.

Listen guys, I've got something to confess. I don't love Christmas, okay? As a Muslim, we never celebrated it growing up.

I never got presents. I don't love peppermint or the colors red and green together. And it's very, very cold.

So, I decided to complain about it on the new episode of See Something Say Something.

I've invited two of my friends to talk about why they like Christmas so much when I don't.

We argue about a bunch of holiday things, like the biggest Christmas store in the world, Bronner's CHRISTmas Wonderland...

Another birds eye view of our store! So much to see and enjoy when u visit our Store 🎅🏻❤️☺️
