15 Ways To Make Yourself Feel Festive…
As it is literally 1 week away from Christmas, I thought I would write a post on how to make you feel festive when you are just NOT feeling it. For some reason this year I am not feeling Christmassy at all, which is probably the first time in 25 years. I have been trying to do these and I must admit they have helped me get into the Christmas groove and made me feel more excited for the Christmas period. Here are 15 ways to make you feel more festive:
1. Make sure you have an advent calendar!!
2. Hang lots of decoration’s all over the place. When it looks like Christmas threw up in your home, you’re done.
3. Put on Christmas songs LOUD and sing them at the top of your voice.
4. Go ice skating, find a nice outdoors one, they usually have a very festive feel.
5. Bake festive treats (while playing Christmas music of course).
6. Spend a day watching Christmas movies. Pick a selection, put them on and don’t move all day!
7. Have a gingerbread or eggnog latte, they are like Christmas in your mouth.
8. Get out and go shopping, all the lights and decorations should make you feel festive. Along with all the people panicking about getting last minute presents, nothing gives you the feel of Christmas quite like that.
9. Make plans with your friends and families to do festive things.
10. Make a to do list filled with all of the things you need/want to do before Christmas day.
11. Spend an evening wrapping all the gifts you have bought, listening to Christmas music, by the tree drinking a hot chocolate.
12. Make a mulled wine or a festive punch .
13. Make your house smell/room smell festive by using candles, air fresheners or baking/making something that is festive smelling. WITH ALL OF THE CINNAMON AND CLOVES.
14. Look online and find a Christmas market that is closest to you. Go and be merry little human.
15. Wear a Christmas jumper everyday leading up till Christmas, if you want to. No one will judge you as ’tis the season.
I really hoped some of these have helped you feel more festive
Until next time…
