Hey y’all! Hope you all had a great weekend and are prepared to enjoy the last week before Christmas. Many say December is the most busy month of the year, and they may be right, but still you got to make room for some fun between errands and decorations, cooking and hunting for gifts, right? It’s 5 days until Christmas and believe me you still have plenty of time to enjoy this week at its fullest!
1. Send out your love in good ol’ postcards
Facebook, instant messaging and emails are absolutely great, but there’s nothing like getting a postcard like the good ol’ days! Christmas is a wonderful time to remember everyone who has been a special part of your year. Even a couple of lines thanking them for being in your life will mean so much, and they will feel so loved and appreciated!
Make sure you’ll write them whilst listening to some Christmas songs, to enlighten the season mood! And don’t forget to send them out as soon as you can because this is the busiest month of the year!
2. Get crafty! Make your own Christmas decorations
This year was the first time I’ve made our very own Christmas decorations. How about DIY twinkle lights? They’re easy and give a little touch of Christmas to your house. I followed the instructions from Maie Dae blog: Ribbon Lights DIY.
All you need is a strand of lights (large bulbs or twinkle lights) and festive ribbons, in colours that compliment your home. Mine turned out great with red, golden, burgundy and striped green ribbons, and are beautifully hanging in our kitchen window!
3. Gather your friends and watch some Christmas classics
What is your favourite Christmas movie? I love watching Home Alone 2: Lost In New York, I’ve been watching it every year on any given December day since I remember, it has become a tradition!
Why not invite your friends over and do some Christmas movies marathon while eating your favourite munchies or ordering a couple of pizzas? Make sure that you all share a blanket or two! Coziness to the max. Here is a list of the Top 5 Funniest Christmas Movies of all time.
4. Have your picture taken with Santa
Be a kid again, wait in line for a couple of hours and have your picture taken with Santa! Sitting on a lap of a stranger, may be, well, an awkward moment… So bring your best friend too, so both of you can take the photo together, and have a good laugh years from now!
5. Go ice skating with your significant other
Make time for a romantic ice skating session with your better half, there are lots of ice rinks in your town! If you are lucky enough to have snow back where you’re living, go sleigh ride together! I promise it will be a fun time you’ll be remembering for ages. Especially if you trip and fall!
6. Visit a Christmas Market
Go to a Christmas market, the local the better. Here is a list of Europe’s top Christmas markets for you, hopefully you’re near one of them. Try one of the holiday specialties. And if you never tried spiced mulled wine, give it a try! It’s amazing.
What are your favourite activities for this week prior to Christmas? Do you have your very own tradition?
Merry Monday everyone!
