December is here and the countdown to Christmas is on! Are you feeling holiday ready? Growing up, I always cherished the time between Thanksgiving and Christmas, making most of the excitement leading up to December 25th. One of the best things about the holidays is taking part in traditions — and creating new ones! To celebrate the season, I put together a little list of fun and simple ways to get in the holiday spirit…
CREATE A CHRISTMAS PLAYLIST | I admit: I’m one of those people who could listen to Christmas music (almost) year-round. When it comes to Christmas music, I’m partial to the classics like Bing Crosby and Ella Fitzgerald. Spotify is where I love to create and share playlists. Do you have a favorite Christmas song or album?
DECORATE AROUND HOME | Beyond a Christmas tree, a garland, wreath, throw pillows, or even a simple strand of lights help set the festive mood around home.
EMBRACE A TRADITION | Whether old or new, traditions make the holiday season special. Maybe it’s ice skating, baking Christmas cookies, driving around the neighborhood to look at Christmas lights, or volunteering in your community. Do you have any holiday traditions this time of year?
DRESS THE PART | Christmas is the perfect time to dress in a little extra sparkle and going glam. Try wearing statement jewelry, dressing in red, painting your nails this shade, and rocking a bold lip color to instantly feel in the holiday spirit.
WATCH A CLASSIC CHRISTMAS MOVIE | My favorite holiday flicks? It’s a Wonderful Life, The Holiday, Home Alone… and Christmas Vacation is always good for laughs.
What holiday traditions are your favorite? Anything you’d add to the list?
