The Best Way To Spread Christmas Cheer
So finals are right around the corner for a lot of you, and though that is always a tough unfortunate time, we at So Danca wanted to extend our hopes and confidence in you and tell you to not give up, that you can do this, once it is done you'll feel much better and then Christmas will be upon you full of foods and presents!
And though Christmas is still a few weeks away here are a few things you can do to to cheer yourself up and get in the spirit of the season! This list could be endless, really, but here are a few of our favorites:
Putting up the Christmas tree is always a great way to ready yourself for the holidays, its a transition symbol. Once the tree is up and you are beheld by its beauty and all that comes with it, you cannot help but to smile and look forward to what is to come. Be it putting the tree up with family or at school with friends, this is always a great idea, specially if you are missing home.
Watching classic and new Christmas movies is always a great one too, from "The Grinch", to "Elf", to "Love Actually", to "A Christmas Carol", and of course the four classics, "White Christmas", "Miracle on 34th Street", "It's a Wonderful Life" and "A Christmas Story". There you go, if your excuse was that you didn't know any movies to watch now you have nine to watch, if you're a guy and are looking at me saying something along the lines of "There are no good guy movies on that list, so I'm not watching them", well here you go then, my favorite "guy" Christmas movies, "Die Hard", "Gremlins", "Scrooged", "Nightmare Before Christmas", and "Bad Santa", there you go, no excuses now, everyone can get in the Christmas spirit together.
An oldie but a goodie, depending on where you live and such, is caroling. Caroling is a lost art, one I myself am not a huge fan of, though I do enjoying carolers, and everyone that I've met that does go out caroling always have a ton of fun and come back really happy, as if by singing to strangers they made their lives better, and you know what? I bet they do, I bet they do indeed.
Now we could end this entry with saying watch fun youtube videos of people going to crazy on their light shows at their houses, and that would have been an ok ending, but there is one more way that you can get in the Christmas spirit, a simple way, and personally I find to be one of the most rewarding ways, and that is starting your Christmas shopping. There is something to giving someone a gift that really uplifts your spirit, it can be something small, something you made, something big even, whatever the gift might be, being able to give something to someone you care about is a great thing. So go to the mall, or if you're low on money then beginning making something, maybe a mix cd, or a framed picture, and start getting the presents on your Christmas list bought. Then go on youtube and watch some videos, lol.
Be encouraged, love much, remember to rest, surround yourself with those you love, and have a great week.
