Bake Some Yummy Treats

Baking something delicious is a great activity that all the family can get involved with. Pick a tasty treat that signifies Christmas to you, like mince pies, a chocolate log, or Christmas cookies. If you are not an enthusiastic chef, start simple with some hot chocolate, marshmallows, and whipped cream. Having the sweet smell of homemade treats wafting through your home is a great way to get the holiday season started. 

Sing Christmas Carols 

“The best way to spread Christmas cheer is singing loud for all to hear” – Elf. 

Singing carols can be so fun and festive. This doesn’t mean you need to get wrapped up and sing on your neighbor’s porch. Simply play some festive tunes around the house and sing and dance to your heart’s content. Alternatively, you could invite some friends and family around for a good old-fashioned singsong around an open fire. Hey Siri, play Santa Claus is Coming to Town.

Make Some Memories 

The experiences you share with your family during the holidays are always so memorable, so planning a festive outing is the perfect way to get into the Christmas spirit. Surprise your loved ones with tickets for the Radio City Christmas Spectacular, followed by a walk around the Christmas lights with a mulled wine or hot chocolate. It doesn’t get any more festive than this.

Get Crafty

Christmas is the season of giving, and handmade items are a sure-fire way to show those around you, that you love them. So why not break out the glitter glue and your arts and craft supplies? You can start small by making handmade cards or ornaments for the tree. Pinterest is full of great card ideas if you need a little more direction. 

Spend a Day on the Couch

With so much to do around the holidays, it can often feel like it’s whizzing by. So, make sure you take some time to slow down and relax. Plan a day on the couch, grab some snacks, and watch your favorite Christmas films back to back. A day of cheesy festive fun is sure to put you in a good mood.

Spread Some Cheer 

During the holiday season, it’s so important to be kind to yourself and others. For some, Christmas can be a challenging time of the year, so if you know anyone who might be feeling stressed or overwhelmed, try to find a way to spread some cheer and offer a helping hand. If you have any elderly neighbors who might be alone, invite them around. Take any food leftovers to your local shelter and donate unwanted gifts to those less fortunate. Christmas is truly the season of giving and putting a smile on someone’s face is sure to get you into the festive spirit.
