Hi there,
Can you believe that Chirstmas is in two days!! Like seriously it was just thanksgiving like last week. Anyways, I love being festive and doing activities just 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. 


SHOPPING!!!!!!!!!!
If you know me then you know why I put shopping in all caps with explenation points and its because I love to go shopping. Now you really have to love shopping in order 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 memebers I was so happy because I was getting the things that they wanted so I know when they open their presents on Christmas they will be happy.


Build a Gingerbread House
Okay so right after Thanksgiving we bought a gingerbread house and it was a mess but it was fun too. Grab all you little siblings and sit and make houses and avoid a sugar rush. Now a sugar rush may not sound ideal but making a ginger bread house is will definitely entertain the little ones.



Watch Chrsitmas Movies

This one I am pretty sure everyone does. When Christmas is approaching then 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 Exoress, and Grandma Got Run Over by a Reigndeer. 



Make Christmas Dishes


As in dishes I mean food. Every year we make Christmas cookies in which we use the ones where you just pop them into the oven but I have also seen others make them from scratch. There also maybe 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 Chrsitmas Spirit then to sing along to all your favorite Chrsitmas songs. What we do in my family is that we listen to them while decorating the tree but oranaments and little kids dancing do not mix well so be careful if you do that. 


Chistmas Photoshoot


A lot of people take Christmas photos around the holidays for their Christmas cards. Now if your like my family and  only take group photos once in every blue moon then you can definitely take some on your own. Grab a friend and take some photos by your Chirstmas 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 is cheers to 2018!!

Until Next Time,
Samara
