Christmas is my all time favorite time of year! A time for gift giving, decorations, shortbread, fresh smelling Christmas trees, carols Christmas cards and traditions.

It is true to say that I act like a kid at Christmas. Best time of the year. Now not everyone is like me and singing fa la la la at this time of year, some people dislike Christmas all together.

Now I get Christmas isn’t for everyone and some people are into it more than others but why hate Christmas?! I mean doesn’t the smell of egg nog, chestnuts on a open fire or building snowman just melt your heart.

Over the weekend I met a few hater of Christmas. Each to there own but I am determine to turn there Christmas frown upside down.

So here are my top 5 tips for getting into the Christmas spirit this festive season.

1- Embrace for food celebration– indulge in mince pies, shortbread, peppermint bark, pudding to name a few.

2- Sing a little carol- if you are in a Christmas funk,sing a little tune. Get out those old Christmas cd, or buy a new one and have a sing a long to frosty the snow man, have yourself a merry little Christmas or good old jingle bells.

3- Start new traditions- so Christmas isn’t your thing or you are living away from love ones- book a Christmas holiday, do a movie marathon, cook up a feast for orphans Christmas or just relax with a book.

4- Watch Holiday movies- yes I know they can be bad, but always entertaining, especially with girlfriends and a bottle of wine.

5- Attend holiday parties- get out of your comfort zone and attend a holiday party either for work or with friends.

No matter how you do it, embrace the holiday season and get a little festive!

It is time to Christmas it up!
