Happy Holidays everybody, T-minus seven days until Christmas! This is my favorite time of the year. I love being festive, seeing Christmas decor, and all the good food. Most of all I love spending time with my family. Sometimes we get caught up in all the craziness of the season, so I thought I would share a couple of ways to make sure the spirit stays alive this holiday season and how to make the most out of it.
First and most obvious, watch ALL the Christmas movies you can! This is a given, there’s nothing better than to snuggle up, drinking hot cocoa and watching a good Christmas movie to get you in the spirit.
Next, let’s talk about getting in the mood, the Christmas atmosphere. Put some Christmas music on, light up a Christmas candle, put some pine cones out or maybe even get a real tree. That way your house gives you that warm holiday feeling all season long!
Do Christmas activities, look up places around you that have activities going on, like a tree lighting or ice skating. Then… Bake!! Make a gingerbread house, bake cookies, and get creative.
GIVE BACK! Give back this holiday season, you can do anything! There’s a ton of places where you can buy presents for children in need and make their Christmas great. You could volunteer at a homeless shelter, or host a child for Christmas. There’s so much you can do to give back to your community!
Go out driving and see the Christmas lights! Speaking of Christmas lights, make sure you have your house decorated inside and out! That will give you the Christmas spirit for sure.
Most importantly, be with the ones you love! Spend your time wisley and be with your family! Make all the memories you can and cherish each one!
I hope you enjoyed the read and I hope you all have a Merry Christmas, and remember what the season is all about!!
Much Love, JuJu
