Trying to figure out how to get someone in the Christmas spirit? It’s very hard not to feel festive when you’re decking the halls with your uni friends. Start your decorating nice and early this year. Drape everything in tinsel, mistletoe, and baubles. Decorate your tree in lights. As the nights get darker, a bright and colourful home is a must.
You know it’s really Christmas when you hear festive bangers blaring on the radio. Nothing quite raises your spirits like singing along to some Christmas classics. Whether it’s Michael Buble or Mariah Carey, no-one can resist at least tapping their toes when a Christmas song comes on. If you can, try and resist the urge to play them from November 1st…
Okay, so you might get stopped by the fashion police. But wearing a Christmas sweater is the perfect way to get into the Christmas spirit, and keep warm during the holiday season. Rummage through your wardrobe, dust off your ugliest Christmas sweater and wear it with pride!
Crack a festive film on and watch how quickly you fall into a cozy Christmas mood. There’s nothing quite like burying yourself in a blanket and watching a classic on a cold winter night. From Home Alone to Elf and It’s a Wonderful Life, the options are endless. Remember – Die Hard counts!
What better way to get in the Christmas spirit than by wrapping presents? Organise a secret santa amongst your friends, and enjoy the thrill of working out who bought you your gift. Buying a secret santa gift doesn’t have to cost you an armful – set a budget of £5 – £10 and get creative!
There are so many things to do around Christmas time. You can visit a charming Christmas market, shop in a Christmas themed shopping centre, or go ice-skating. The sight of other people enjoying the holiday season should help you in finding the Christmas spirit.
