10 ways to get in the Christmas Spirit!

Deck the halls and get in the Christmas spirit!
Christmas traditions light the fire of Christmas spirit. Here are a few of our favourite ideas to start off the holiday season with your friends and family.

Pack up the family and head out on a tree search. Whether you visit a tree lot or tromp through the woods, it’s hard to not catch the Christmas spirit surrounded by Christmas trees.

Decorating the tree with family or a loved one who is also into it helps ignite the Christmas spirit.

Countdown to Christmas day

Sit with your children and connect paper strips to form a chain marking each day until Christmas. This is a fun alternative to the regular Christmas advent calendar and a great way to create excitement for the holiday season and your favourite Christmas traditions. Have a night of hot chocolate and tree decorating. Make decorating the Christmas tree together a special Christmas tradition. Take the time to remember where loved Christmas ornaments came from, and what makes them special. Try a few new Christmas decoration ideas.

Get crafty

Get the kids involved with making handmade gifts to share with friends and neighbors. Gifts in a jar are particularly easy to do with children.

Give back to others For some, the holidays can be a tough time. There are many individuals and families that miss out on holiday gifts and a hot turkey dinner, among other daily necessities. Talk to your kids about the true holiday spirit of giving and how you can help a family in need. Create a Christmas hamper for a family in your community, start a food or clothing drive or contact your local food bank or shelter for other great ideas on how you and your family can give back this Christmas.

Play Christmas tunes

Tune in to Christmas stations and let the Christmas spirit fill your house and car with carols. Print out the words to a few of your favourite Christmas songs so everyone can sing along. If you’re feeling extra adventurous and would like to spread the Christmas cheer, take your carols to the streets for everyone to hear!

Have a Christmas movie night

Pop some popcorn and snuggle in for a night of Christmas movies. Whether you are a fan of “Elf” or you would rather watch “White Christmas,” there’s a holiday movie out there for everyone.

Make Christmas ornaments

Creating a new ornament each year can be a wonderful Christmas tradition. Kids will get excited when they see their handmade decorations from years past hanging on
