I bet you’ve been hearing Christmas jingles and songs all around and it has you wondering how its already the end of the year. 2021 literally flew by and the entire COVID 19 situation made things a lot more complicated. Feeling discouraged? Or just generally not in the mood for festivities? Not to worry, we’re always here to help.
Plan a get together with friends
If you’re not really getting into the festive mood, a good way to lift your spirits is to hang around your friends and loved ones. Being with people who genuinely love you and care about you, is a sure way to get excited and enjoy the holidays. Plan a day filled with games, food, lots of fun and you’ll find yourself refreshed and ready to take on the festive season.
Start a New Christmas Tradition
It could be anything but starting a new tradition gives you something to look forward to, towards the end of the year. Send letters to your friends, do a mini Christmas carol with your family, celebrate unusually. Do anything and everything. Get your groove on with any Christmas tradition of your choice.
Binge- Watch Christmas Movies
Watching Christmas movies is a great way to get into the holiday groove. The cheesiness and the warmth it brings just totally get you giddy for Christmas. For a more surreal experience, check the theatres around you for a stage play to watch. Need Christmas movie ideas? Christmas Carol, Bad Santa, How the Grinch stole Christmas, elf or you can check your favorite movie streaming platforms for more options.
Prepare a Christmas menu
Finally, everyone does a bit of hosting others during the festive period. Make this less stressful by creating a menu on time so that you don’t have to do last minute shopping for items. It also shows how much effort you put in making sure your guests are well taken care of.
Put up your Christmas Tree
Nothing spells Christmas like trees and lights. Set up your tree and make an event out of it by doing a countdown to switching on the lights. Make it exciting for yourself as you get into the festive mood. The lights can be a reflection of your mood, so go wild and switch it all the way up.
Do Things You Love
Its important to spend sometime with yourself this festive season so you can start the new year feeling very refreshed. Find some time to do things you love, things like going for a walk solo or with your pet, writing, going for concerts, farming, baking or even decluttering your space. Take this as your yearly treat to yourself and do it.
