How To Get Into The Christmas Spirit

June 24, 2012 | Comments: 0 | Views: 122

Certain conditions can prevent you from getting into the Christmas spirit, such as working the festive period, financial restraints, family dramas etc. If you find yourself not feeling festive during the holidays, but with a desire to, here is my list of things that help me to get into the Christmas spirit!

1. Get out, and get Christmas shopping! Even if you have left it late, the closer to Christmas day it gets, the better! The hustle bustle, the manic rush of last minute Christmas shoppers, the annual classic Christmas songs, Santa's grotto in the shopping centre, carol singers, the decorations... I could go on all day.

2. Movies. There is a tonne of Christmas spirit movies to choose from! Personally, I watch Elf, followed by The Muppet's Christmas Carol. These 2 films never fail to get me into Christmas cheer! There must be something there that gives that warm fuzzy glow.

3. Visit someone with kids! I don't have children, so visiting friends with little people running round all excited is a sure fire way of seeing what magic is available during the Christmas season. Just being there for a flying coffee and chat and to drop of some pressies for the kids in enough to spark a glow.

4. Take a walk around town. Seeing houses lit up from outside and within, and wondering what wishes are being made inside is a fantastic way of feeling the chrimbo vibes! Can also help inspire should you decide to dec out your home xD

5. Food. Cooking up a turkey, warming some mince pies, buying some cranberry sauce... The food of the Christmas season is almost unique to that season! Indulging in some is sure to trigger Christmas feelings!

6. Send some cards. Writing up some cards to close friends and family will sure help lift spirits. Either buy or make them! Either one still have the same festive effect when given to their recievers!

Last of all, friends. What better way of getting into the best of Christmas spirits is most definitely with good friends! What better time of the year to make that extra effort to speak to an old friend or friends, remind close friends why your are friends and maybe even a good time to accept new friends into your life! Once the Christmas spirit is there, the heart is open to share joy and festivities.

Christopher is a child at heart! Just as soon as it is gone, he is already planning the next one!
