The holiday season tends to bring unneeded stress, food comas, empty bank accounts, and cavities. Sometimes before the big day arrives, we already feel drained. But it’s one of the most wonderful times of the year, so if you need a pick me up, below is my list of 10 things to help you get in the holiday spirit!

10.  Dress in Holiday Style
Think red, plaid, sequins, metallics, and all things glitter!

9.  See Christmas Lights
The dazzling display of lit up houses is a sure way to get you in the yuletide spirit.

8.  It’s beginning to look a lot like cocktails
Put down that glass of wine, or quickly finish it, and get festive with 10 Christmas cocktail recipes!

7. Meet someone under the Mistletoe
No explanation needed. 

6.  Get Sweet
Pull out the sprinkles, frosting, and food-dye. One of my favorite things to do each Christmas is baking with my sisters. Whether it’s making cookies or gingerbread houses, we always get creative and a bit competitive!

5.  Have a Christmas Movie Night
Watch one of your favorite holiday films, maybe a classic like A Christmas Story, or one of my personal favorites, Elf or Home Alone.

4.  The best way to spread Christmas cheer is singing loud of all to hear
Whether you’re an NSync, Michael Buble, or Elvis Presley fan. Turn up the tunes and sing along!

3.  Look forward to giving
Give your time, volunteer in the community, help some one carry their groceries, buy someone's groceries, do something to give back.

2.  Update your Holiday To-Do list
Buy BE present
Wrap gifts someone in a HUG
Send gifts PEACE
Shop for Donate Food
Make Cookies LOVE
See BE the LIGHTs

1.  Remember the meaning of Christmas
“Christmas means giving. The Father gave His Son, and the Son gave His life. Without giving there is no true Christmas, and without sacrifice there is no true worship.”
-Gordon B. Hinckley

…And to all a good night.

In good faith,


  1. Love it! Merry Christmas, Tessie! :)

  2. Merry Christmas, Tess! I love your outfit in the picture!!
