How to get into the Christmas spirit this year
Posted on December 18 2020
It’s the most wonderful time of the year. Or is it? If you’re normally a shining example of the Christmas spirit but this year you’ve become a bit of a Grinch, never fear, we have some tips on how you can get into the Christmas spirit this season.
Dress for Christmas
This isn't the season for high fashion. Leave your pride at the door and embrace the season of tacky jumpers. Wearing an “ugly” Christmas jumper has become a trend the last few years - the uglier the better! Nothing creates a sense of comradery with friends and loved ones than seeing who can make the biggest fool of themselves. Why not host a Christmas party via video call to showcase the ugliest Christmas jumper. It’s a great way to shake off some of those festive hang-ups and get you laughing!
Take a look around
Sometimes the countdown to Christmas can be a little overwhelming and when this feeling strikes, it can be a good idea to shake off the cobwebs and take a stroll. A great way to appreciate the beauty of Christmas is to take a walk around your neighbourhood to see the Christmas lights and decorations. This is a great alternative to the outdoor Christmas markets that you might miss this year. There’s nothing like seeing your town or city lit up and twinkling to evoke the Christmas spirit. A walk in the fresh air will also help to brighten the mood and help you feel refreshed.
Make your home a Christmas grotto
Making sure your space is decorated is key to getting into the Christmas mood. You don’t have to transform your home into a winter wonderland, but special touches and decorations can really help to improve your Christmas spirit. If putting up the tree and wreath aren't enough to bring on the Christmas spirit, then try scented candles to really wake up the senses. Although Christmas may feel different this year, creating a space that is special to you will go a long way to lifting your festive spirit.
This year is different than most Christmas' and it can feel hard to get into the Christmas spirit. There are still steps you can take to get yourself into the festive mood. Try and embrace the season by adorning your favourite Christmas jumper and encourage others to do the same. Take a walk around your community and look at the Christmas lights. The twinkling lights are bound to evoke the festive spirit. Finally, make an effort to decorate your space so even when you’re struggling to get into the Christmas spirit, all you have to do is take a look at your surroundings to feel connected to the festive season.
