Thanksgiving is over and you know what that means...... IT'S CHRISTMAS!!!!! YAY! I am super in love with Christmas time, Advent, and December, so I am thrilled that It's finally that time of year again :D Are you thrilled? If not, here is my list of things I do to get into the spirit!!
Christmas movies are the best! They are perfect with a warm fire, hot cocoa, and soft pajama's. And snow. Lots of snow <3
Here are some of my absolute favorite christmas movies: Elf (if you haven't seen this, do so NOW,) Snowglobe, Ruldolf the Red Nosed Reindeer, Frosty the Snowman, The Santa Clause, National Lampoon's Christmas vacation, While You Were Sleeping (one of my favs,) Home Alone, and Arthur Christmas.
Christmas pajamas, or at least fuzzy pajamas are a must. Wear them to bed, around the house, or while watching one of the movies listed up there ^ ;)
3. Holiday baking
Break out the Christmas sprinkles! I love baking, and Christmas is the perfect time to do it! Here are some yummy-looking recipes I found on Pinterest: Christmas vanilla cake roll Egg nog Christmas cake White chocolate peppermint cookies I haven't tried any of these, so I can't promise you they taste good, or that they'll come out good, but they look good!

Paint your nails red and green, and throw on a cute scarf and sweater! Ear muffs, Christmas socks, and Santa hat optional ;)

Read a Christmas book! Some good ones are The gift of the Magi by O'Henry, The Christmas box by Richard Paul Evans, Candy Apple Books Confessions Of A Bitter Sweet Secret Santa by Lara Bergen, or even just the Christmas picture books! I still love reading those!
One of my favorite parts of Christmas preparation is the music! On a typical December day, you can find me baking while blaring Michael Bublè Christmas. Or if you play an instrument, you can find inexpensive sheet music on website like http://www.musicnotes.com .
I hope these eight super fun Christmassy things helped you get excited! I know I can't wait! Have a great day, and thank you for reading!
