It’s finally that time of the year, we’re we can finally get away from work for a few days, focus on wrapping gifts, meeting up with friends we haven’t seen in months, scroll through Pinterest for the Christmas recipes, and squeezing in some last minute shopping before the big day. The prep for Christmas can feel dizzying and unraveling for many of us. Sometimes it’s hard to keep up with the “Christmas” cheer when the holidays can be far from restful or enjoyable
This may sound cliché, but it’s the holidays and even though Christmas time is known to be a busy time, it really should be a time that is recreational and where zero work (aka running last minute errands) is done. It’s should be a fun and happy time.
When I saw this video it really made me realize that we its vital to have some fun during this time of the year. There’s so much to celebrate and be grateful for even though life may not be to our liking or expectations.
So what’s this video all about? Well! It’s an Uber driver and his various riders belting out Mariah Carey’s classic “All I want for Christmas” song with all the most appropriate Christmas props. Watch it here …
The best isn’t it??
So here are a few tips on how you can your Christmas a little more enjoyable:
A gift wrapping girls night. Help each other wrap gifts while watching a classic Christmas movie.
Give the gift of your time. Treat family to holiday show, breakfast at a nice hotel or theatre show.
Be present. Take a moment to forget about the tasks and enjoy the few hours with your family.
Take a walk. It might be cold but stroll through your neighbourhood at night with a family member or friend to admire all the Christmas lights.
Create new traditions. Go to a Christmas ballet or visit a few Christmas markets.
