12 Ways to get into the Christmas Spirit

12 Ways to get into the Christmas Spirit

Guest post from Jojo DebrazzaStruggling to get in the Christmas spirit? Here are twelve ways to feel fun and festive in the run up to the big day.

1. Watch your favourite Christmas movies – You might even get to see that heart-warming TV department store advert during the breaks too! Have you seen ours? 

2. Count down the days – Make an advent calendar to give yourself a special treat each day. It could be a chocolate, a beer, or your favourite Ringtons biscuit.
3. Bake – Fill the house with merry smells by making mince pies, Christmas cake or the Christmas pudding.Ringtons Christmas Cake Mix
4. Put up the Christmas tree and decorations – The more tinsel and sparkle the better!

5. Drink Christmas beverages – Relax with a mulled wine, Advocaat or a warm mug of Ringtons Christmas Spice Loose Tea.

6. Visit a German market – The hustle and bustle and smell of gluhwein and bratwurst will get you feeling festive.
7. Wear a Christmas jumper – Cute, classic or funny, you’ll be sure to raise a smile and help spread the Christmas cheer!

8. Shop – Buy something special for the ones you love. If you’re stuck for ideas you can’t go wrong with a Christmas gift from Ringtons.
9. Listen to Christmas songs – Put on your favourite Christmas album, turn the volume up and have a good old singalong!
10. Wrap up presents and write out cards – Those festive scenes and the thought of your loved ones opening their gifts will make you feel all warm and fuzzy inside.
11. Take a tour of decorated houses – Some people go all out, lighting up their houses and gardens with inflatable Santas, lit up snowmen and flashing lights. Show your appreciation by leaving a donation in their charity collection box if they have one.
12. Enjoy a party – Whether it’s with your friends, family or work colleagues, wear a silly hat, pull crackers and tell bad jokes. It’s all part of the fun.

Merry Christmas
