Anyone else struggling a bit this week with your holiday spirit? With so much craziness in the world again and so many plans being changed, it’s hard to feel hopeful and positive. So with that, I’m trying to hold on to to the things that make the holidays so special. Sharing 5 things to put you in a festive mood this week and hope they help with your holiday spirit!
5 THINGS TO PUT YOU IN A FESTIVE MOOD THIS WEEK:
1. Watch Your Favorite Holiday Movies
Nothing puts me in a cozy Christmas mood than watching my favorite holiday movies or TV episodes. I shared this list a few years ago which includes some of my all time favorites.
2. Bake A Festive Treat
Best part of the holidays? All the Christmas treats! My favorite to make (and eat) is my mom’s Chinese New Year Cookies or these White Chocolate Peppermint Cookies if you’re in need of some sweet inspo.
3. Walk (Or Drive) Around To See Christmas Decorations
If you’re in NYC, a walk through the West Village or Upper East Side is an absolute must and a great way to safely spend time with people during the week. When at home, my family loves to drive around after dinner with hot cocoa and rate the neighborhood houses!
4. Make A Holiday Cocktail At Home
Skipping the bars this week doesn’t mean you can’t have a festive cocktail! Try one of these cocktail recipes for a Christmas cocktail at your home bar.
5. Get Dressed Up!
The quickest way to feel festive is getting dressed up! Put on your plaid, sequins or favorite dress and with some holiday tunes you’ll be ready for Christmas in no time!
