5 Ways To Get Into The Festive Spirit

Usually, I have no trouble when it comes to feeling christmassy. I'm always the first person singing christmas songs and wishing everyone I meet a merry christmas. Sometimes though, if things aren't going great in our day to day lives and we're feeling quite low, it can be hard to want to join in with the christmas festivities. I've been struggling with this a bit myself this year, so I thought it would be nice to share some of the ways I help myself to get in the festive mood when I'm just not feeling it!

EAT ALL THE CHRISTMAS FOOD
One of my absolute favourite things about christmas is all the amazing food that comes with it! If I could only eat one meal for the rest of my life it would definitely be christmas dinner. And not only that, christmas is the time where you can eat all the yule logs, mince pies and endless boxes of chocolates you want and not feel guilty about it because hey, it's christmas! 

CURL UP WITH A CHRISTMAS FILM
Even just putting a christmas film on in the background whilst I get something else done helps me start feeling festive. They're just always so heart-warming and wonderful and there's so many different ones out there that there's always something for everyone!

GO FOR A WALK (OR A DRIVE)
I absolutely love going outside and seeing all the christmas decorations that people have put up on the front of their houses. It's so much fun looking for the house that's really gone to town with the decorations and there's actually a house that I see on my commute home from university that has draped gold fairy lights over the entire house. It looks magical!

VISIT YOUR LOCAL SHOPPING CENTRE
Similar to the previous one, I love seeing all the decorations that shopping centres put up at this time of year. I recently went shopping and the entire building was filled with christmas trees and fairy lights. I also get into the festive spirit just by seeing all of the christmas gifts and window displays of all the shops, it gets me excited for present wrapping!

GET YOUR FRIENDS ROUND
Probably the best way to feel christmassy is to get all of your friends round, put on a christmas music channel and have a dance party. I have a few friends coming to stay with me soon and I can't wait to do this with them. Add a mug of hot chocolate and some festive food and you've got the perfect christmas night in!

How do you get into the christmas spirit?
