How To Get Into Christmas Spirit

How to get into Christmas spirit


Shops are filled with Christmas decorations, streets are shining because of the fairy lights, wherever you look you can feel that Christmas is closer and closer. While all of this may imply that it is easy for everyone to get into the Christmas spirit, well that is not the truth. It is not strange that some people feel overwhelmed and pressured to feel joyful throughout the whole of December. We can see all the Christmas adverts and assumption that there is the right way to get into the Christmas spirit and that is from the 1st of December. 

Unfortunately, it doesn't work like that. Especially not now when we are living in such a strange time. It is not easy to take our minds of negative information we are constantly being bombarded with. I know that some of you may feel like you need to feel Christmassy by any means. That is not the truth. Just take your time and it will come. Here are 5 simple ways that can hopefully help you ease into the festive and Christmas spirit. 


5 WAYS TO GET INTO THE CHRISTMAS SPIRIT 


1) PUT ON CHRISTMAS LIGHTS 

You might have noticed that the streets and the stores are filled with Christmas lights. That is not strange as Christmas lights are one of the things that remind us of the Christmas season. They bring warmth and joy into every space. If you want to get into the Christmas spirit fast then putting on the Christmas lights is the one thing you should do right now. I know that some people don't like to start decorating their home for Christmas early. The great thing about fairy lights is that you can have them on for a whole year. 

Fairy lights are a nice way to give some magic to your home. You can find the one that you like the most and place them in the room you spend the most time in. Light them as soon as it's dark outside. They will make such a lovely mood while you're snuggled in your bed with a big cup of hot chocolate and a Christmas movie on. Christmas lights have the power to make you feel joyful and ready for the holiday season. 

2) TURN ON CHRISTMAS SONGS 

When it comes to getting into the Christmas spirit nothing can quite beat the Christmas songs. Christma songs are made to make you feel excited for Christmas day. They are filled with joy tones and messages that just warms your heart. I'm sure that you already have your favorite Christmas song. Sometimes listening to the same old ones on repeat can get a little bit boring. That's why it is important that you constantly look for new Christmas songs that will get you in the spirit. You can find some amazing Christmas songs if you search for them on YouTube. I personally really like PTX as they always put out new Christmas songs that are absolutely beautiful. 

Spotify is also gold for finding new amazing music. There is a lot of already premade Christmas playlist you can just turn on and enjoy the Christmas tunes. You can always save songs that you like the most and make your own Christmas playlist that you can turn on whenever you need merry Christmas songs in the background while you are baking, cleaning, or decorating your home. Listen to the Christmas playlist as long as you don't start to feel the Christmas spirit.

3) START CHRISTMAS GIFT SHOPPING 

Going to the marts and stores to buy Christmas presents is one of the things that signal that Christmas day is almost here. There are two types of people when it comes to Christmas gift shopping. There are ones who bought all the presents before December even came and then there are those who wait till the last moment. Well, if you are in the second group that might be the reason why you can't get into the Christmas spirit early enough. Start looking for the perfect present for your dearest ones right now. 

You can search online and get your Christmas gift shopping done without even leaving your home. If you would rather experience the old school head over to the city and see what different stores are offering. I recommend first checking online and then going to the actual store as it will save you quite some time. The energy you get when you are Christmas gift shopping is really amazing. Especially when you start imagining how are those persons you are buying gifts for going to react. 

4) TRY CHRISTMAS DECORATION DIY 

After buying Christmas decorations for a few years you don't actually need more of them. Especially if you still live with your parents and they've been collecting Christmas decorations for quite some time. Well, why not try and make your own decorations to give your home some Christmas magic. There is something so special in making your own ornaments. It is such a fun activity to do by yourself or with the help of your family. If you are only starting to have your own family and would like to make your own Christmas tradition then making your own Christmas decorations could be something you should consider. 

There are so many amazing DIY projects you can easily follow. My go-to place to find amazing Christmas decor ideas is of course Pinterest. I already tried making a few of the ones I found on there and they turned out pretty good. I love how homemade Christmas decorations give much more warmth to your home. You end up with a completely unique product that you made with your own bare hands. P.S. This is also a great Christmas gift idea.  

5) WATCH VLOGMAS & READ BLOGMAS

Seeing how other people get into the Christmas spirit is one of my favorite things to do. Vlogmas is the best time of the year. You can follow your favorite YouTubers and bloggers who are participating in this fun content creation idea. Vlogmas has been around for quite some time and in some aspects, it beat the popularity of Christma movies. Some people would rather watch what others are doing during December all up until Christmas day. 

Seeing them decorating their home, going to the Christmas market or baking cookies wakes up that Christmas spirit in us. There are a lot of YouTubers and bloggers that are sharing their December journey with everyone. If your favorite YouTuber or blogger isn't doing it then be sure to check those who are. I'm sure that you are going to find some amazing ones. I personally really enjoy Zoe Sugg's vlogmas as she really knows how to get into the Christmas spirit and it makes me get into it as well.
