Holidays are a time most of us look forward to most of the year, but it can also be a very busy and stressful time. So I want to use this post as a reminder to myself and even some of you, to take a breather from the chaos that can be our lives and remember to also enjoy this run up to the holidays and all that it has to offer. I have made up a little list of the Christmasy things I want to tick off in the next few weeks and hopefully this inspires some of you as well.
Donate to a children’s charity
More than anything, the holidays should be a time of giving , and not just to our loved ones but also to those less fortuned. I am huge believer in giving back , be it by volunteering your time or making a physical donation. I always see those donation baskets in front of supermarkets and it`s one of the easiest ways to give back , I like to pick up some toys and even some clothes.
Listen to some carols
I used to love going caroling around Christmas time when I was younger and even now I really love listening to Christmas music as soon as December hits. But there is nothing better than live carols , in the city there are a bunch of Christmas concerts and around the old town you can always find groups of carolers singing.
The Victoria`s Secret Fashion Show
Controversial for a loot of people I personally love watching the fashion show every year, and it`s actually one of my favorite traditions that really make me feel like Christmas is approaching. I honestly don`t know what about a bunch of incredibly gorgeous women walking around in lingerie makes me feel Christmasy but it does.
Christmas markets are a new discovery for me , honestly there isn`t that much to do other than drink muled wine and walk around but I am so looking forward to this year.
Rocking that Christmas Sweater
Obviously what is December without a Christmas sweater.
Walking around the city at night
There is nothing better than seeing the city lit up by Christmas lights, so I love walking around in the evenings , maybe with a hot chocolate in hand and taking in the magic of it all.
What do you love doing in the run up to the holidays to get into the spirit , I wold love some more ideas. I will see you again tomorrow for Day 3 of Blogmas !!!!
