Maybe you don’t feel like having Christmas fun at all. Still working, still many gifts left to buy, many tasks scheduled for the holiday, a lot of Christmas eve preparations, … and so on. I know exactly how you feel!
This year I’ve decided that I need a big change and I’ve come up with solution ….Because everything is so simple – it’s in our minds. Read this carefully – now is the right time for Christmas fun (repeat: F-U-N!), for relax (repeat: R-E-L-A-X!), for just everything you need!
Being alone (with your own company), with your family or crazy friend, there is always a way to make yourself feel better, to be ok, to be satisfied. No matter if you’re excited, exhausted, anxious, spiritless. Let me suggest you 7 types of guaranteed Christmas fun – for everyone, for every mood, for every need. Grab your favorite hot drink and take your 5 minutes!
# 1 Been around the world…
If you’re curious about the world, nations, and traditions, a good Christmas fun starts with learning how to say “MERRY CHRISTMAS“ IN OVER 100 different languages plus many interesting facts. You can actually use them for a DIY Christmas gift for your beloved. The main idea is to combine these “Merry Christmas” expressions with “I love you” in the same 100 languages (Omniglot would do the work). Just copy them in a fancy way (use PowerPoint, Word, Excel or why not try picmonkey.com ) or handwrite them. The effect is important in this case. And the message is something like “I’ll keep saying “Merry Christmas! I love you!” again & again, now & then, here & there (preferably in France)” or any other place you wish to go :p.
# 2 Christmas singing
I said singing, not just Christmas songs to listen. I mean it! If you only try this free online Christmas karaoke – you will feel extremely high-spirited with Santa Claus is Coming in Town and more over 50 Christmas songs & carols that directly bring the Christmas fun here.
# 3 Keeping the kids busy
Keeping the kids busy is an essential part of your Christmas fun plan. Let them decorate a virtual Christmas tree in hundreds of ways with this Christmas fun for kids. You’ll have at least 10-30 minutes for yourself, having a relaxing bath or beautification procedures.
# 4 Christmas relaxation
It is definitely time to cool dawn and escape from the Christmas rush – just take a nice drink, watch the snowflakes and listen to the music with this Christmas relax. It’s only you in the world (remember, kids are decorating their virtual tree right now….)! (or just at least for these stolen 5 minutes). Prepare for the next stage of the Christmas fun!
# 5 E-mailing the right person
Want to do something crazy nonsense? Just e-mail Santa! Take some Christmas fun by sending him the mail and he’ll reply to you personally! Try this! And don’t forget to ask for your Christmas wishes, or better – say thanks for the presents IN ADVANCE! (in real life this always works when asking something…:) )
Tip: Your kids will also love it! Maybe 30 minutes more for your beauty procedures.
# 7 Making a Christmas greeting card with your bare hands
If you’re not a crafty person, this probably;y sounds to you like a joke. But I assure you that anyone can do this. You only need a couple of colored cards or printing paper, scissors, some gift wrapping paper leftovers, pencil, ruler, paper glue, a ribbon and….. willing to start. The result will be great! I bet there’s, at least, one person in the whole world that really deserves a handmade Christmas card! (Think – your kid would be crazy about it!). This year I’ve made myself all the Christmas cards for my family. Cost me almost nothing, but brought me a lot of inspiration, good mood, satisfaction, and Christmas fun. I can’t stop now and continued with cards for my closest friends! Luckily Christmas is just in few days, so I won’t spend my life on making Christmas greeting cards.
There are tons of video tutorials on YouTube but my personally favorite channel is CraftinGeek (this girl is simply amazing!)
