    Great tips especially listening to Christmas songs that always gets me in the Christmas mood. As an Expat I know how lonely it can be without friends and family. Have a happy Xmas Thank you for linking up to #EatSleepBlogRT

    I love a good Christmas song. I also love visiting Christmas Markets and drinking mulled wine (although this happens a lot less now I have the children!). Wishing you a very Merry Christmas! #KCACOLS

  3. I think Christmas songs is my #1 to get in the spirit when I am at home. Then I would say it is spending time with family. My family lives far away so when I get to visit them, it always gets me in the spirit

    Yup, we’ve done a lot of these things! They do help. We made cookies today and that was tons of fun.

  5. Such lovely tips – we will be making the christmas cookies today which I’m really looking forward to! #eatsleepblogrt

    Excellent tips for helping get you into the spirit! I was having a hard time this year, but once I started listening to the music, decorating, baking and wrapping… it seems to be coming around! 🙂

    I feel as I grow older the Christmas spirit appears less and less. Oh to be a child again and to feel the full magic! Now it’s just all work, lol!

  8. I totally get what you mean! I didn’t realize all the work that really goes into the holidays until I got married and wasn’t living with my parents anymore…lol! But it’s nice because it gives you a chance to make your own holiday traditions. Great tips, those will surely make you feel festive 🙂

    Happy Holidays!

    I find Christmas really stressful until I start putting on carols or getting out the ornaments. I think those little touches are what make Christmas special

  20. You’ve covered absolutely everything here. I hope you’re in the Christmas spirit now! Music always works best for me to get me in the mood. Merry Christmas #KCACOLS

  21. These are great idea’s, Since moving out of the country, I too have lost the spirit of Christmas and only put up a tree just two days before, just will never be the same for me.

  22. I love Christmas. In fact I have child like love for Christmas or any other holiday that screams family and food. Even though, I didn’t grow up celebrating Christmas, yet, it has to be my most favorite celebration ever.

  23. Deanna says:

    These are great ideas. I LOVE Christmas. It is my favorite time of year. We saw a crabby lady at the store today and my daughter said maybe she had a sad Christmas. I wish I could give her your list. 🙂

  24. Nellwyn says:

    Baking Christmas cookies and watching my favourite classic Christmas movies always puts me in the festive spirit. I hope you had a good holiday!

  25. JcCee says:

    I love looking at the different styles of cookies and getting to enjoy the speciality drinks from coffee shops that only are available during the Christmas holidays.

  26. Everything you said on your list is definitely how I got into the spirit. I love Christmas movies, decorating and cookies (:

    These are some great tips. What gets me into Christmas spirit is decorating my house, baking cookies and cupcakes with my kids and watching Christmas movies. 🙂

    Sometimes it’s hard for me to get the spirit of Christmas as well. Watching Christmas movies and eating cookies always helps! Thanks for sharing 🙂

    Great tips, these. Christmas used to be so magical for me, as a child. Now I work hard to make this magic happen for my own children.

    Christmas Movies always put me in the Christmas mood. I love this time of the year!

  32. Christmas is the best time of the year and we had such great fun this year. We pretty much covered everything you mentioned. That’s a great list of things for Christmas spirit. Happy New Year !

  33. TColeman says:

    This is all such great advice. I tend to have a hard time at first getting into the mood for the holidays.

  34. Rain says:

    for me it’s always once the tree is in my home and I smell that fresh scent of pine. It just instantly puts me in a holiday mood. This year was a bit of a struggle to me and I didn’t get a tree so, these suggestions would have helped. I’ll keep them in mind if I’m in a funk next year.
