Where Are You Christmas {Spirit}?

Happy Tuesday!

I don’t know about you, but to me it seems 2015 is the year of minimal Christmas spirit. I mean Christmas is in three days and I’m not feeling like it, at all. 

Around the country, this is what I’ve been seeing. I mean, the temperature is late fall temperatures at best, it has barely snowed in many usually snow-filled places. It’s almost like “is this a joke? Are we really twenty-two days into December?” Yes, yes we are.

So what is one supposed to do with Christmas right around the corner? Well, regardless Christmas is coming, so act like it!

Watch Christmas Movies There are some Christmas movies that just put you in the right spirit and get you ready for the holidays. Sit down with your family and

Bake Cookies/Treats What could be better than your place smelling like holiday goodies? Baking {and eating} these goodies can help put you in the Christmas spirit quickly! Don’t forget to save some for Santa!
Holiday Drinks We all know that Starbucks has their holiday drinks which can quickly put you in the holiday spirit! You can also make your own holiday drinks at home, like hot chocolate! So make, or grab, your favorite holiday treat and relax at home!

Even though I don’t really feel like Christmas is three days from now, I’m very excited for Christmas! What are you doing for Christmas this year?

    I'm with you! I definitely don't have the holiday spirit, despite wanting to! I've been watching so many Christmas movies and drinking hot chocolate to try and get in the spirit!

    I feel you, but I live in California where we never get snow for Christmas! I just watch White Christmas this weekend. it doesn't quite feel like the holidays until I've watched that movie at least once!

      I'm originally from California so I'm never looking for snow, but usually I can still get in the spirit! I should watch that movie!

  3. A Peachy Sonder says

    I agree- it definitely doesn't feel like Christmas normally does to me. It's super warm and that makes it hard to get in the holiday spirit. Hopefully it kicks in soon!

    I have been watching the Hallmark Channel and ION TV Christmas movies all month. Seems to do the trick for me, even though many make me sentimental and teary (what doesn't?). It is especially hard when we don't get to be with those in our family we love the most, so I keep reminding myself to appreciate who I can be with and remember the true reason of the season.When in doubt, make cookies!!!!

    I feel the same way about Christmas this year. Kinda crazy how it's like 70 here today and supposed to be 80 on Christmas. xoxo, Jenny || Breakfast at Lillys

    These are some great ways to get in the Christmas spirit. Miami weather definitely is not helping me get into the spirit.. we play Christmas music all day at my house but I need something more! xoLauren

  7. Fairy Princess Jord says

    A nice Christmas drink while watching Christmas movies or listening to Christmas music is a great way to get into the Christmas spirit!

  8. Jordyn Upchurch says

    I absolutely adore watching Christmas movies, I love to do it while I wrap my gifts and decorate :)xoxo, SSThe Southern Stylista

  9. Seersucker Sass says

    It is in the 70's where I live, so I've been getting into the Christmas spirit by watching Christmas movies!XO, SS || Seersucker Sass

    I'm glad I'm not the only one feeling this way! Christmas has seriously just crept up on all of us this year, it seems like. I love watching Christmas movies and making cookies to get me into the spirit, though!xxKendra | Stnkrbug
