headcanon: beverly loves the scent winter candy apple because it reminds her of holidays spent with the losers around the fireplace in Bill’s home, with ornaments made by a young Bill and Georgie hung up on a tree and every loser has a stocking (minus stan because he doesn’t celebrate christmas) !! stan has his own menorah to light and all the losers get him gifts for every day of hanukkah! they don’t force him into christmas activities but they participate in every hanukkah tradition and activity that stan wants them to do.
beverly always looks back on these memories fondly, especially once she starts dating ben in high school because every holiday became special memories for the two of them.
beverly has bill’s mom help her knit sweaters for each loser, which they cherish and wear almost everyday !! she helps bake cookies and treats for her friends!
beverly marsh loves holidays now because her friends made her feel extra loved and special during them!!
