GET INTO THE HOLIDAY SPIRIT!
Come together with friends and family
It’s indeed the most wonderful time of the year to reconnect with your people, your friends and family. Spend valuable time with them, have a cup of coffee, discuss your plans and dreams, share ideas, prepare the holiday table, go shopping and let time flow the best way!
Make a to do list
Holidays come and go super-fast. Make sure to catch a glimpse of your local events calendar to see if anything tickles your fancy. Do your research and write down all the activities you would like to do, all the restaurants and bars you would like to visit, all the goods you would like to give a try and anything that would sparkle up your holiday spirit.
Express your gratitude
Show how grateful you are for your life and achievements, remember to say ‘thank you’ to those who are always there to embrace and support you and join a good initiative. Of course, you do not need holidays for this, but is a great opportunity to express a few words.
Read inspiring stories
Stories inspire us to find magic and dream! There are so many real-world stories. The kind that pluck at your heart strings. The kind that rekindle your hope. The kind that remind you of what life is all about. The kind that remind you just how generous and kind a human being can be.
Watch holiday movies
Visit the local theatre or cinema, or simply watch online Christmas related movies. Alone or with your friends and family, lay back, make a hot coffee or chocolate and enjoy some old but gold movies like Elf, it’s a wonderful life, Home Alone, White Christmas, Miracle on 34th street and the list goes on…
Listen to holiday songs
Play your favourite Christmas songs and sing your area’s carols and international hits. They will fill the atmosphere with a good mood while it is a great exercise to revamp your playlist!
Light up your room
Add lights and ornaments around your room or the entire house. Decoration always helps to get cozy, warm and festive! You can either buy some beautiful ornaments or even create yours.

Bake holiday goods and festive treats
Find a holiday recipe to recreate, go grocery shopping, choose your ingredients and toppings and get started. Baking holiday goods may not be the easiest thing but for sure is a great way to create, share and offer the holiday spirit in the sweetest way!
Help others to get into the holiday spirit
Now that you got into the holiday spirit, it’s time to share your mood with others. Help those in need, create gifts for your loved ones, say a good word and offer a big smile to the people you meet in your daily life, take initiatives and gather your friends and family all together. The best things life aren’t things and even small actions of affection and kindness can make a great difference.
