Nothing can beat the sights, smells and sounds of Christmas.

Here’s how to have a happy December.

  • Dance to the music – put on the  Bony M Christmas CD and dance.
  • String up some lights and leave them on during the day. Pick your favorite color. The color that makes you feel “happy” and instills anticipation.
  • Plan an Advent evening with some friends.  Have dinner and light the candles.
  • Keep gift giving to a minimum. Set aside your Christmas budget and stick with it.
  • If you give a gift, make it a meaningful one.
  • Don’t use your credit card.
  • On December 24th take the family and attend a Christmas candlelight service.
  • If it snows, play in it.
  •  Make home made apple cider
  • Make Christmas cards and give them to your neighbors.
  • Smell up the house with baking. Make cookies and give some to a neighbor.
  • Watch “A Charlie Brown Christmas”
  • Watch Christmas classics .
