Hi there,
Can you believe that Christmas is in two days!! Like, seriously, it was just Thanksgiving like last week. Anyways, I love being festive and doing activities to get into the mood a little bit because, well, it just makes you more jolly. So today, I thought I would list some activities that could get you into the holiday spirit. 


If you know me, you know why I put shopping in all caps with exclamation points, and it's because I love to go shopping. Now you have to love shopping to do it during the holidays because there will be some long, very long lines. Other than that, shopping for others can put you in a good mood. When I was shopping for my family members, I was so happy because I was getting the things they wanted so I know they will be satisfied when they open their presents on Christmas.

Build a Gingerbread House

Okay, right after Thanksgiving, we bought a gingerbread house, and it was a mess, but it was fun too. Grab all your little siblings and sit and make houses and avoid a sugar rush. A sugar rush may not sound ideal, but making a gingerbread house will entertain the little ones.

Watch Christmas Movies

This one, I am pretty sure everyone does. When Christmas is approaching, all the Christmas specials and movies come out, and they are so fun to watch, especially if you gather your family to watch them. My favorites include Charlie Brown, The Polar Express, and Grandma Got Run Over by a Reindeer. 

Make Christmas Dishes

As in dishes, I mean food. Every year we make Christmas cookies in which we use the ones where you pop them into the oven, but I have also seen others make them from scratch. There also may be other cakes and just festive little snacks you can make with your friends and family as well.

Sing Christmas Carols / Listen to Christmas Songs 

Typing this while listening to All I want for Christmas is You by Mariah Carey.

What better way to get into Christmas Spirit than to sing along to all your favorite Christmas songs. In my family, we listen to them while decorating the tree, but ornaments and little kids dancing do not mix well, so be careful if you do that. 

Christmas Photoshoot

A lot of people take Christmas photos around the holidays for their Christmas cards. Now, if you're like my family and only take group photos once in every blue moon, you can take some on your own. Grab a friend and take some pictures by your Christmas tree and post them on Instagram. 


Well, that is all I have for this post! Comment down below what you like to do to get into the holiday spirit. I wish all of you a Happy Holiday and a Happy New Year! Here are the cheers to 2018!!

Until Next Time,
