Christmas is just around the corner, and in an effort to not be a Grinch this year, I have decided to get into the holiday spirit. Christmas was my favourite when I was a kid but as I got older, with the realization that Santa Claus is not real (although deep down I like to think he is), the plastic excuse for a tree, and the number of other things that made it less and less special over the years, it was hard to stay in the spirit of the holidays.
This year I have decided to change the pace and get excited about the holidays again. It is a time for family and friends to be together and there are so many things to do over the holiday season that make it just as much fun as when we were all kids. Plus, being old enough to have spiked eggnog makes it that much better. I even have a holiday activity wish list that is coming along quite nicely! Granted I will be finishing up the semester before I can even think of half these activities, but once the semester is done and exams are a thing of the past, you better believe I am jam packing my December with holiday fun!
Holiday Activity Wish List:
Crafting (yeah, that’s right, crafting)
Seeing the Nutcracker for the first time
Making gingerbread houses
The Christmas craft fair
Outdoor ice skating at
Granted, I will probably have a bit more added to this list as it gets closer to Christmas, but I feel like it is a good start for getting in the spirit. Better than I have done in the last coupe of years at least, so I am saying goodbye to the bah, humbug Grinch-like me, and hello to a reborn holiday lover me! Stay tuned for new holiday posts!
