Christmas spirit

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!
