How To Get In the Holiday Spirit

Happy Thursday everyone! Can you believe that it’s only 17 days until Christmas? If you’ve been following me on Instagram, you know that I am obsessed with the holidays (and I have been for a while). I also get very excited at the possibility of snow around here. We don’t get a whole lot in Arkansas, so I take what I can get ;) Today I wanted to share some ways that I get in the holiday spirit. I would love to hear your ideas, too!

Cuddle up by the fire

Grab a pair of cozy slippers

I’m obsessed with these from Kohl’s! (I’m wearing them in the picture above & only $16)

Paint your nails a fun holiday color

I recommend a red or a gold glitter! (Be sure to use my favorite combo of topcoat & drying drops!)

nail polish, julep, OPI, candle, fireplace, rebekaheliz

Watch your favorite holiday movie

My two favorites are the Holiday & Home Alone!

home alone, coffee, mcdonald's, rebekaheliz, fireplace, holidays

Drink a festive hot cocoa or coffee

This peppermint hot tea is my favorite! (it’s even caffeine free)

the holiday, movie, peppermint, peppermint tea, leopard, rebekaheliz

Eat everything peppermint

We are talking candy canes, peppermint bark, and mint chocolate!

Light a wintry candle

I love “Flannel” & “Winter” by Bath & Body Works! I also like Visions of Sugar Plum & Spruce Cuttings by Voluspa.

    My favorite Christmas movie is a Christmas Story, but we are weird in our house – we watch it all year long! LOL. Thanks for the reminder to pop in the DVD tonite :)

    Cup of hot chocolate or tea and a good movie sounds like the perfect night. Using a new nail polish would also work.

    Listening to Christmas music while doing my Christmas cards helps me get into the holiday spirit

    Ok … I completely spaced on just how close we are to Christmas. Yikes! We like to bake Christmas cookies and watch Christmas movies to get in the spirit :)

    Those all sound like great ideas! It seems I always think I’ll get into the holiday mood later, but later comes and the holiday is over! I need to take some time to stop and enjoy things as they are :)

    I have a fireplace. we always are using it this time of year.

  13. 12/11 / 3:00 pm

    I miss my fireplace! Ok, enough whining. I love those slippers too. The apt I live in now is SO drafty I’m going to need a good pair of comfy warm slippers!

  14. 12/11 / 7:03 pm

    Oh yes we love having the fire-place on too! Since I am perpetually cold in the winter time, I long for it and hot things like soup and chili! I’m still trying to get into the spirit. My husband’s health ailments are kinda keeping me down.

    We are in the holiday spirit over here. We have been baking almost everyday and making fires every night. It is also very cold outside so we know the holidays are almost here.

    Decorating a tree and listening to Christmas music (my favorites are O Holy Night and Mary Did You Know) are my favorite ways to get the in holiday spirit!

    All of these are the makings of true festive spirit! I need to get out my Home Alone copy and watch it immediately. It’s not the season with out that! Oh, and get some of those fantastic slippers.

    These are all great ideas to get into the holiday spirit. I get into the holiday spirit when I put the lights up the day after Thanksgiving. The slippers above are something I will have to check out because I need a new pair. Thanks for shairng these awesome ideas.

    As the song says, these are a few of my favorite things! Peppermint tea is the bomb. I love Christmas movies too. Home Alone is one of my favorites.
