This year, we need the holidays more than ever. After all, we could all use a little happiness, holiday spirit, and time spent with family and friends. With that being said, now is the time to start getting in the holiday spirit! Although this year looks a little different in terms of holiday parties and gatherings, there are plenty of ways to ring in the season.
National Lampoon’s Christmas Vacation, Elf, The Grinch, Rudolph, and more, everyone has their all-time favorite Christmas movie. Since we typically save these movies for one month out of the year, it’s always exciting to finally cozy up on the couch to watch them!
Bake Something Festive
Many people have a tasty baked good that they typically make around the holidays. This holiday season, fill your home with the delightful scent of baking! Perhaps you can bake classic gingerbread cookies or find a new recipe online. Or, you could bake plain sugar cookies in different holiday shapes for a night full of cookie decorating! This year, enjoy all of the sweet holiday treats — you deserve it!
Scope Out Local Holiday Lights
Driving around, blasting festive tunes, and looking at local holiday lights is the perfect way to get in the spirit while practicing social distancing. Often times, you can find a list of tacky lights in the area online. You could also set out on an adventure without a destination to seek out the prettiest lights for yourself!
Decorate Your Apartment
One of the easiest ways to get in the holiday spirit is by decorating your apartment! If you don’t have room for a full-sized evergreen tree, many places like Target sell decently priced mini trees and ornaments. Additionally, stringing twinkle lights throughout your apartment is a great way to create warm lighting while bringing some holiday charm into your home.
Host a Virtual Holiday Party
Likely, this year you may not be able to gather with your co-workers for the annual holiday party or have a fun gathering with your friends, but that can’t stop you from enjoying this season together! Host a virtual holiday party! You can send out a recipe for a holiday cocktail ahead of time so that everyone can enjoy a drink together.
While this season looks a little different than normal, it’s certainly important to make the most of it. This year, get creative with how you get into the spirit!
