Hooray Thursday: Ways to Get in the Holiday Spirit

Entry Comments Actions

We absolutely love the holidays and we can’t wait to start celebrating. Here are some activities to launch you into the yuletide spirit. Gather up your loved ones and enjoy the most wonderful time of the year!

Write Holiday Cards

For friends and family you won’t be able to spend time with this holiday, don’t rely on e-cards on sending your holiday greetings. Taking time to write a hand-written note will go a long way to show you care.

Create Handmade Gifts

If you’ve got time in your hands and you’re feeling crafty, why not make handmade gifts this year? The recipient will be oh so touched with the thought that it is a labor of love.

Visit Paskuhan Village

… or other Christmas-themed park, grab some home-baked goodies and drive to your neighborhood or city known for its fabulous Christmas decors. The dazzling decors will surely put you in the yuletide spirit.

Bake Some Goodies

Aside from the wonderful smell of cookies warming in the oven, you can also decorate using holiday-themed cutters and colors. It’s super festive to serve different Christmas-themed baked goodies.

Holiday Snippets

My weekend of intended relaxation quickly turned into catching up on way too much laundry and tons of organizational projects, add to that the first bridal fair I’ve attended with my B. *yihee*

Although… I thought I would take a few moments today to share to you a few of our Christmas and New Year’s snippets, Instagram style. My holiday involved a lot of spending time with family and loved ones, last minute Christmas shopping, wrapping a mountain of gifts, spending more time in the kitchen trying my skills in cooking new recipes for the first time — like Classic Pot Roast, Beef and Mushroom Pasta and mashed potato (I feel so accomplished! Haha), bonding with little brother over making my lola’s recipe and not to mention my favorite puto.

Add to that my heavenly moments sipping mom’s rich hot chocolate, munching on those puto, eating lots of desserts including ate Hazel’s carrot cake with cream cheese frosting and watching batoots dance to Gangnam style (pretty little kids from my B’s side of the family). Holidays with the Sahaguns are also the best time to enjoy hosting a friendly competition and contests amongst kids and kids at heart.

December has been a hectic yet amazing month. May this month of January and each month onwards have as much love and blessings as the previous ones.

I’ll be stopping in again soon with a few bits + pieces of my reflections on 2012, but in the meantime I’m wishing you all had a very beautiful weekend and a bright Monday. Lots of love! Cheers to a fresh start!
