Blast holiday music
Clean the house while blasting cheerful holiday music and belt out a tune to get your spirits up.
Decorate the house
Decorate the house in festive colors. Hang mistletoe and set out red and green candles, tape up friends' greeting cards, hang stockings on the mantle, and put the tree up early.
Decorate the outside of the home
Hang outdoor lights along the eaves, over the trees, and on the bushes. Paint a special Christmas letter box for the porch. Buy animated and lit reindeer, and other decorations for the lawn.
Volunteer to help others
Volunteer to bring toys, clothing, or a little cheer to those not as well off. Give to others around you, shoveling the walk for an elderly neighbor, making cookies, or helping out at church.
Watch Christmas movies
Watch Christmas movies with the family to get everyone in the spirit. Before bed, tell the kids Christmas stories to make it a season they will never forget.
Send personalized letters
Send out personalized, old-fashioned, well-wishing notes and letters to friends, family, and associates. Everyone likes to get a nice letter this time of year.
