Get your decorations up.
Christmas decorations… Some people love them, others, not so much. I personally absolutely love Christmas decorations. Something about seeing my home all filled up with decorations just makes everything feel so warm and festive. Just earlier today Jake and I spent a while decorating the cute little Christmas Tree he bought for his bedroom, and it instantly sent my Christmas spirit into overdrive.
Have a Christmas movie day.
The fact it’s December can only mean one thing. It’s now socially acceptable to watch Christmas movies. There’s nothing I love more than sitting down during a chilly winters day, hot chocolate in hand, watching Christmas films. Whilst I may have actually started watching my Christmas movies a little while before December came around, now there’s no better excuse than to spend the whole day curled up in your pyjamas and a blanket watching The Grinch (or any other Christmas film which you might happen to like.)
This isn’t one of those things you necessarily have to do alone!
Make an event out of it. Bring some friends round for a Christmas movie day or a Christmas movie sleepover and just watch countless amounts of Christmas films.
Last year I wrote a little post filled with some of my favourite Christmas films, and it’s safe to say my list hasn’t really expanded too much afar from that. National Lampoon’s Christmas Vacation is a must see film. I recently watched The Santa Claus 3, and loved it. There are countless amounts of films you can watch, not all of which are necessarily cheesy holiday classics.
Dance like nobody’s watching.
Not much of a dancer? Neither am I, but there is nothing more fun to do than to throw on a classic Christmas song playlist and just let your hair down and have some fun dancing around to it in your bedroom.
Christmas music for me is a vital part of my ‘festive spirit’, I mean really, without it how would we even know it’s Christmas! You don’t necessarily have to stick to the old songs either, Christmas and Chill by Ariana Grande is one of my favourite Christmas albums, as well as her Christmas Kisses EP.
