Good morning everyone and happy December! It’s my favorite time of the year and I am beyond excited! My pink Christmas tree has been up for a few weeks now and I’m planning on putting up more Christmas lights in my apartment. I love everything about this time of the year. Giving gifts, snow, Christmas music, movies, mulled wine, baking gingerbread cookies and so on. I made a list of things to do this month that will hopefully put you in a more festive mood.
Listen to Christmas songs. I personally have my own Christmas playlist on Spotify, but I have also listened to the Christmas Hits playlist by Spotify.
Decorate your home/room. I have my Christmas tree up but I’m planning on decorating more!
Write a wishlist. This is a very nice idea I think. But of course it’s not a must to do it, I just thought this would be a fun idea.
Write Christmas cards. I looove writing cards! It’s just a simple but nice way to hopefully make someone’s day.
Watch Christmas movies. Netflix has pretty good Christmas movies. My favorite one is The Christmas Chronicles!
Eat and drink festive foods and drinks. I love traditional Christmas food that we have here in Finland. But of course I also love mulled wine and gingerbread cookies.
Go Christmas shopping. This is one of my very favorites things to do during the holidays. I love giving gifts.
Wear Christmas sweaters. I think this is also a nice thing. I love sweater weather and especially Christmas sweaters.
Light candles. I love lighting candles. It makes the home so cozy.
Bake gingerbread cookies. This is a must I think. It’s a fun way to get into the festive spirit and do it with family, a partner, best friend or a group of friends.
Read a book with a holiday theme. I am currently reading “let it snow” by John Green, Maureen Johnson and Lauren Myracle. So far it’s good!
Enjoy this time of the year to the fullest. Let’s make December a good month!
