Getting in the Holiday Spirit

December 22, 2014

I'm not sure about you all, but this year it was rough getting into the holiday spirit. It wasn't until about Friday that I finally got excited for Christmas! Now I'm full swing in the holiday mood, so I wanted to share with you the things I did to get excited!

1. Watch a TON of Christmas movies!
The Polar Express is my all-time favorite Christmas movie, I watch it every year, sometimes even 2 or 3 times! In the past week, I've watched what feels like every Xmas movie on Netflix, and I have 2 or 3 really good ones to recommend! Christmas with the Kranks, 12 Dates of Christmas, A Christmas Kiss, and Holidaze (I know, that's a lot of movies) are all great movies to watch with friends!

2. Decorating the Tree/Holiday DIY
Last week we decorated our Christmas tree, and it was nostalgic pulling out some of my favorite ornaments. We also tried a new DIY for our front door, instead of using a wreath.

3. Holiday Cooking
Every year my family makes a bag of treats for our teachers for the holidays, this year we made double ginger cookies, peppermint fudge, and chocolate & peanut butter acorns.

4. Holiday Themed Photos via Social Media
 Looking at all the Christmas-y photos on Pinterest, Tumblr and Instagram adds a little bit of excitement to every day! Here are some of my favorites!
