As we head further into December, it has many of us looking for ways to get more into the festive spirit. Whether you have children that you want to get involved with, you have been manic with work and want to find something positive to focus on, or just love this time of year, there are a host of things you can do. The Christmas season is, after all, known for being the time of joy so why not make the most of it. Here we have put together some top ways that you can get into the festive spirit this December.
Do Some Baking
There is nothing quite like baking to get you in the Christmas spirit! There are so many things you can do and this is something you can either do on your own or with your kids. You could bake something traditional such as a Christmas cake, or look and find a delicious small Batch Chocolate Chip Cookies Recipe. Once you are done, you could invite your family members round to enjoy them or drop some off for your neighbors, they’re sure to appreciate it! If you need some additional inspiration, one of my favorite places is the Better Homes and Garden Christmas Cookies page or check out my Mom’s Recipes section for my favorite Christmas cookie recipes handed down through the years.
Host a Festive Party
If you’re looking for an excuse to get dressed up and make the most of the season, why not host a festive party? You could throw this at your house so it’s pretty low maintenance, or just have a gathering at a local venue. For it, you could play games such as pin the nose on Rudolph or Christmas trivia. Some locations near to you might be offering festive quiz nights which are always fun to get involved with, so be sure to keep your eyes peeled for these! Everyone should wear something festive such as sparkles or a Christmas sweater!
Go on a Tour of Some Local Christmas Lights
As your neighborhood fills with Christmas lights and festive cheer, why not take a walk around to look at them? This is a beautiful and totally free way to get you in the spirit of the season and is a lovely thing for the whole family to do together. Be sure to wrap up warm!
Find a Christmas Market
As well as Christmas lights in your neighborhood, take a look at any Christmas markets that might be happening near you. These are fun to walk around and also enable you to pick up some last minute gifts that you might not find anywhere else. Some have food trucks and rides, while others are mostly about the stalls. Do your research and find the ones that suit what you’re looking for.
These are just a few things you can do in order to get into the festive spirit. Whether you decide to do one on the list or all of them, you are sure to feel much more Christmassy once you have!
