My husband recently told me that it didn’t “feel” like the Christmas season. I have to agree with him. The year just moves by so quickly that I am still expecting to go buy a Turkey for Thanksgiving. Instead, our meal was hurriedly prepared and this is the first time in a long time that we didn’t put the tree up before the month of December! We haven’t even bought one yet! I’ve decided the best thing to do to “feel” Christmasy is to make it Christmasy! I am going to begin decorating, bit by bit, and when our house is bright and cheery, it will bring some of the Christmas spirit in. Here are a few other tips to help.
- Baking—when the smell of peppermint and cinnamon fills the house, who doesn’t think Santa will swing by for some cookies?
- Music—I love sharing my favorite Christmas carols with my girls. It’s even better when they sing along!
- Christmas movies—this is a biggie. Every year we seem to acquire some new movies, to the point where it is hard to watch them all!
Ok, now that I have shared my suggestions, I’m eager to hear yours! What do you do to usher in the holidays?
