How To Create Special Holiday Spirit Memories

Christmas- it’s a special time of year: the tender voices of carols on the radio accompany you wherever you go; neighborhood and city streets are alive with rainbows of lights dazzling old and young alike; the sweet smell of fresh-cut pine and fir trees bring warm memories of gift-wrapped anticipation.  Christmas is the season when people travel hundreds of miles to be with family, people they love most.

Divine it would be if the weather were always as comforting as seeing a dearly-missed relative; however, blustery winds and rain, snow and frost are usually what wintertime has prepared for our families’ gatherings, keeping people indoors and close to the burning Yule log.  We might not be able to go outside and play, but there are a ton of fun things for families to do at home!

We at Gululu acknowledge that it’s the big and little moments that make memories and here are some ideas on how you and your loved ones can really get into the holiday spirit!

 

Step 1: 
You don’t need snow to make it feel like the holiday season, grab some seasonal essentials and cover your home in them! Gather the lights, garland, wreaths, bows, ribbons and more! String them all up and around your home to decorate and bring the holidays to you!
 
Step 2: 
Share the joy by bringing people in or meeting them out-right at their front doors! 
Have family and friends visit your newly decorated home and share smiles as you all sip hot apple cider or hot cocoa, and chew on some candy canes! Then, bundle up and make a trip around the neighborhood to sing Christmas carols door to door. 
 
Step 3: 
If the blankets and the fuzzy slippers aren’t keeping you warm, gather around the fireplace and have a family cuddle session! Be sure to be safe and always have an adult present to make sure the fire stays fun for everyone!
 
Step 4: 
Fill your bellies with yummy goodies and decorate some sugar cookies! Follow this simple recipe and add your own colored icing to make the cookies a treat even after you’re done decorating!
 
Step 5:
Take a nice, refreshing walk outside and see how the world around you is covered in a thick (or thin) layer of pure white snow! Make shoeprints and your own path as you walk around and discover how nature has turned your flowing pond into a big block of ice!
