When it comes to being festive and Christmassy, I find it a little bit hard since I live in Florida. Florida doesn’t have the coldest of climates and I find myself walking down a street filled with Christmas lights wearing shorts and a t-shirt. I enjoy doing a few things that get me in the festive spirit which I will share with you.
1.) Music! Listening to the most festive Christmas music always gets me in the Christmas mood. My favorites this year include: “Underneath the Tree,” “Winter Dreams,” and “Wrapped in Red” by Kelly Clarkson, “I’ll Be Home” by Meghan Trainor, “Santa Tell Me” by Ariana Grande, “Cuddle Up” by Catey Shaw, “Greatest Time of Year” by Aly & AJ, “Dear Santa” by Mr Little Big Jeans, and the entire Mariah Carey Christmas album (of course).
2.) Movies! I actually have not seen too many Christmas movies, however I do have a select few that I thoroughly enjoy watching every year. My favorites are: Christmas Vacation, While You Were Sleeping, Sleepless in Seattle, You’ve Got Mail, and Elf.
3.) Clothing! I have a Christmas tree t-shirt that I break out every year which always makes me cheery. I especially like that it’s a short sleeve tee so I can bare the Florida heat while remaining festive. I also own a pair of Christmas printed leggings that I wear with my oversized sweater (pictured).
And as always, hot coco, candy canes, and Christmassy candles are a must.
