Just in case you didn’t know . . .
Christmas is almost here!
And guess what? Where we are, looks like we’ll be getting some lovely thunderstorms and seventy degree weather. Can you say bah humbug?
Here are some ways to continue inciting that Christmas spirit inside of you.
1. Decorate . . .
your room with festive lights and a Christmas tree. My grandma gave me these flashing lights the other day and I can’t wait to put them on my school desk.
2. Buy . . .
one of them there ugly Christmas sweaters.
3. Listen . . .
to good old-fashioned Christmas music. Is it just me, or does that new-fangled stuff just make you cringe? I love songs by Bing Crosby and Nat King Cole.
4. Lick . . .
a peppermint stick.
5. Drink . . .
lot of warm tea/coffee!
6. Watch . . .
Christmas classics — and Hallmark Christmas specials (because no matter how dumb you claim them to be, they have this weird magicalness about them that makes you want to come back).
7. Sit down . . .
and read the Christmas story. Just really read it. Let the words soak over you, and the images play through your head. ‘Cuz, guys? This isn’t just a story. It happened.
