Getting in the Festive Spirit
Yes, it's only October and to say that you are not in the best of festive spirits is putting it mildly. So we've decided to put together this blog to help channel some Christmas spirit with things that are guaranteed to make you feel Christmassy right now...
Prepare Christmas Cards
Be super organised this year and start to write those Christmas cards early! Not only will this fill you with nostalgia for friends you have not seen in a while, it will also spread the festive cheer to everyone on your list!
Never too early to put the tree up
People who put their Christmas decorations up early are happier than those who wait, according to experts! So why not start as early as possible? Having a twinkly festive beacon of fun taking up a significant portion of your living room will give you a much needed dose of Christmas.
Play some festive tunes
Singing along to festive hits will have you feeling Christmassy in no time 🎵 From Mariah to Bing Crosby, the impulse to knock out a “Blue Christmas” or a “Santa Claus Is Coming to Town” knows no boundaries and, the main man, Michael Buble is probably defrosting as you read this!
Put on a Christmas jumper
Get cosy and get festive with your favourite Christmas jumper. A must-wear item of the season, ugly as sin and the epitome of everything that is not cool but they do make you feel very festive!
Curl up with a hot chocolate
There are so many words to describe hot chocolate: decadent, creamy, velvety, and rich all apply to a piping-hot mug of cocoa. Curl up and watch a Christmas movie with a hot chocolate flavoured with gingerbread, peppermint, eggnog or caramel brulée!
When all else fails, watch Elf. If Will Ferrell’s Buddy the Elf can’t fill you with Christmas cheer, you might just be a Grinch…
