The Mushiest Moments From Your Favorite Holiday Themed TV Shows

"If there were a mistletoe over me right now, who would kiss me? No one."

The holiday season is literally the peak of cuffing season. After scouting in August, drafting in September, tryouts in October, and pre-season in November, you'll find that by the time December rolls around, you'll find that you're either with the one you want or you didn't make the cut.

And when it comes to all of the different relationship scenarios contextualized by the holidays, I've been through it all. During high school, I've experienced the cliché yet romantic New Years kiss before, naively thinking "Wow. The person I'm starting my year with is the same person I'll end my year with too" only to eventually get dumped via text right before the school's winter dance and Christmas. During my junior year in college, I went on what I'd like to call a double date baecation (and yes, I meant baecation instead of vacation) right before Christmas.

This year for Christmas I'll be in New York with one of my best friends getaway girl's trip which will probably result in getting drunk at Times Square and reminiscing about all the interesting things that have happened in our love lives specifically over the holidays.

I could go on and on with different stories to explain myself, but these relatable moments about love as told by these 7 popular holiday episodes should do the trick.

Riverdale’s “Silent Night, Deadly Night”

Sometimes telling someone you love them can be the ultimate nerve-wracking experience. You may find that even if the one you love tells you first that they love you, you'll still find that those words are hard to express until the perfect setting and time arises. As seen in the clip, Veronica uses a simplistic gesture to tell Archie those special three, groundbreaking words.

The Office’s “Christmas Party”

Jim giving Pam a special teapot for Christmas came in 5th (3:28-4:13) on MsMojo's video of their cutest moments. The aspect of Jim's preparation that a lot of people may resonate with is that when it comes to the holidays, we do our best to find the people we love the perfect gifts. Some of us may spend hours online or in stores finding the most expensive material goods for our loved ones and others take Jim's approach and spend a lot of time coming up with something creative and original such as a teapot full of their inside jokes.

That 70s Show’s “Hyde’s Christmas Rager”

Being single during the holidays sucks sometimes. You may not even be the type of person who finds themselves in and out of relationships much, but having that special someone during the holiday season definitely ads some spice to the festivities. Jackie Burkhart explains it best that even when you're completely in love with yourself, sometimes you just want to french kiss someone underneath the mistletoe to fulfill the loneliness.

Gossip Girl’s “Roman Holiday”

Serena went above and beyond to find a Christmas-themed way to have sex with Dan for the first time. Though a lot of us haven't thought about completely transforming an empty room into the Christmas fantasy setting for sexy time, we have rushed to Victoria's Secret to find ourselves or our partner's the best Christmas lingerie we can find to make sex all the more festive.

Glee’s “A Very Glee Christmas”

People tend to focus on the highs of love during the holidays while ignoring the down-side. Anyone who has ever had a breakup around Christmas-time can attest to the fact that it overshadows all of the gifts and family time because the only two things you want to do is cry or try to get them back. Rachel's attempt to shop for Christmas trees with her off and on boyfriend, Finn, backfires when he finally sets the record straight and officially dumps her, leaving her heartbroken.

The OC’s “The Countdown”

The OC's New Years episode is the perfect representation of when your New Years kiss is either romantic and everything you've ever wanted or the exact opposite. This classic scene shows Ryan rushing to Marissa as she patiently and anxiously waits for him all night at a party. When he finally shows up just before the clock strikes midnight, they share a passionate kiss to start the brand new year. On the other hand, Summer, Marissa's best friend, isn't so lucky. Summer ends up kissing a random guy at the party, but she quickly realizes that the person she truly wants is her ex-boyfriend, Seth Cohen.

Friends’ “The One With All The Resolutions”

Chandler and Monica want to have the perfect New Years kiss, but because of the secrecy of their relationship, they let Joey concoct a plan to make it happen for them in a covert way. Though the holidays may sound like the best excuse to go public with your relationship, it's still not the nest time for some people for multiple reasons. In Chandler and Monica's case, it's because they are all in the same friend group and they don't want to make things awkward. In the case of others, it could simply be that you're not ready for your family to be in your business about that yet or you don't want to put too much pressure on the relationship before it has a chance to bloom. Either way, we can only hope that things work out for our favor in the end just like it did for Chandler and Monica.

To The Boyfriend Who Makes It Feel Like Valentine's Day Every Single Day Of The Year

I couldn't ask for better.

If love is in the air and it's all over your Instagram feed, that can only mean one thing: Valentine's Day is approaching.

When it comes to Valentine's Day, people typically try to go over the top and demonstrate how much love they have for someone else through giving gifts. Whether that's flowers, chocolates, or going out to dinner, the gifts are meant to show that it's a special day that's all about the person they love.

That's not the case for me.

Valentine's Day is just another day to me. The love I receive from my boyfriend on a daily basis makes me feel like a queen every day, so nothing will really change once February 14th rolls around.

To him, I just want to say two things: thank you, and I love you.

Growing up, I never thought I would know a love as wholesome as yours. I sure as hell never thought I would deserve it, either, but you've shown me my worth and what real love feels like.

I used to not know my worth. I used to only know love as something that turned toxic and controlling. You changed all of that once you came into my life. You have shown me a healthy love that was trusting and unconditional, and I'll love you forever because of that.

I don't need Valentine's Day to know how much you love me. I don't need flowers, chocolates, or anything material to know that you see the rest of your life by my side. I know all of these things because you consistently show me that they're true on a daily basis.

You show me love in everything you do, whether that's holding the door open for me when we go out to eat, asking me how my day was, or making sure that my mental health is okay. You always greet me with a hug and a kiss, and you make me feel like I'm the most important person in the entire world.

You don't need to demonstrate a grand gesture to prove to me that you love me because I've never once doubted your feelings for me. You always tell me how beautiful I am and all of the things you love about me. I'm so thankful to be so head over heels for someone who cares about me with all of their heart.

I could never ask for someone better than you to be my partner in crime. You know me better than I know myself and I love every fiber of who you are. I know that in everything you do, you have me in your mind and your heart. You've shown me what it means to truly love someone, and for that, I'm so grateful.

Thank you for showing me what I deserve, and thank you for making every day feel like the most romantic holiday on the calendar. I love you.

If You're Grossed Out By PDA, Then Don't Look At Me And My Boyfriend Kissing, Easy As That

Building my relationship and showing my boyfriend how much I love him will always be more important than catering to someone's bitterness.

Whenever I see two people kiss, I always smile to myself briefly before looking away. That may sound weird, but honestly, there's something really heartwarming about knowing that other people are happy and in love. In a world that all too often seems full of hatred, heartbreak, and suffering, I try to value little moments of love. I've always felt this way, regardless of whether I was moody or happy, single or cuffed, and having a good or bad day. But apparently, other people, as I've recently found out, don't feel the same way.

"Do you two ever brush your teeth?"

"Are you picking bugs off of each other?"

*Other various glares and audibly annoyed sounds*

Talk about a mood killer, right?

I'll never get what possesses people to say stuff like that when there's a simple solution to this problem.

Don't like it? Don't look.

No one is forcing you to watch us be affectionate with each other. You can easily turn around, check the notifications on your phone, or talk to whoever you're with instead.

I've kissed my boyfriend in LOADS of places: restaurants, bus stops, school buildings, carnivals, parks, beaches, cars, apartments, social gatherings, and so on... And I can promise you that even when you act disgusted by what we're doing or make a nasty comment about us, we're not going to stop. So there's really no point in wasting your breath or expending energy on overdramatic facial expressions.

Even if just for a brief moment, try to think about why a couple might be showing affection for each other in public. (News flash: They're not doing it to deliberately make you comfortable.) It's more than likely that these two people are making the most of a moment.

They're happy and in love. There's nothing wrong with that.

On the flip side, why are you making such a big deal out of something that doesn't involve you whatsoever? My guess is that you're either unbearably lonely, jealous because your own relationship isn't suiting your needs, or just generally coldhearted. If any of those scenarios are true, I wouldn't be surprised. You chose to be hateful and rude over being civil and staying out of matters that don't personally involve you.

Regardless of the circumstance, it's a you problem that you need to work out on your own time.

Just like communication and effort, affection is an important part of a relationship. I want my boyfriend to know that regardless of where we are or who is around us, I will never be embarrassed or reluctant to kiss him or touch him. His feelings guide my behavior. He's my #1 priority. Building my relationship and showing my boyfriend how much I love him will always be more important than catering to someone's bitterness.

You can't avoid being around happy couples in public (really, we're everywhere), but you can change your reaction to them. And that's that.
