How to get yourself into the Christmas spirit


Although Christmas is still days away, I am happy and enjoying every moment. From wearing beautiful dresses to taking photos in front of different beautiful Christmas trees in the city of Glasgow to planning how to decorate our first Christmas tree, this holiday season is looking so good already.

Today, I will be travelling to meet up with my friend in Edinburgh to visit the Edinburgh Christmas Market and have some fun, but in the morning I have a dental appointment, which I will be telling you all about soon.

Christmas is a time to love, gift, be merry, and be happy. You have made it through the year, and I must tell you it's worth celebrating. I know the cold weather can be depressing sometimes, making some people have seasonal depression, but not to worry. With these tips, you will get yourself into the Christmas spirit.

Last year, I struggled to feel the spirit of Christmas, but this year is different, which is why I decided to share these tips that will help rekindle the holiday spirit.


Put some Christmas decorations in your house.

This is a way of making you aware of the season and making your home feel like Christmas. You could switch your dรฉcor options if you always purchased a green Christmas tree; you could get a white Christmas tree this season. You can also have a blast designing your own inflatable and adorning your yard with different decorations. Christmas inflatables come in all shapes and sizes, from the classic Santa Claus and custom inflatable Christmas tree to more modern designs like the Nativity scene or a giant snow globe. Some people even choose to inflate animals or cartoon characters that represent the holiday spirit. No matter what you choose, setting up your own outdoor Christmas display is a great way to get into the holiday spirit. Not only will it bring some cheer to your neighborhood, but it will also give you a chance to show off your creative side.

Listen to Christmas music

Play your favorite Christmas music. While cleaning or decorating your room, listen to upbeat Christmas music. Christmas music is such a special treat, and the majority of us listen to it just during this season! Absorb as much Christmas music as possible! It's a true mood booster!

Plan a Christmas Party and bring out that special Christmas dress.

Nothing beats this: getting ready for a Christmas party. You need a perfect dress for a good Christmas party. You can go for a red silky dress or a tulle princess dress, just like my dress. My ever-pretty.com plunge-v-neck spaghetti dress is beyond my wildest dreams. It makes me look forward to a great Christmas ball or party, sitting pretty, and sipping some good wine. This gorgeous dress features spaghetti straps, a ruched waist, and an asymmetrical hem.

Buy the best picture-perfect gown selections to wear to your festive occasions. From ever-pretty, you get to choose from super trendy dresses to gorgeous evening dresses for an affordable process. Enjoy up to a 15% off Christmas discount on all items.




Get a Christmas Manicure
Get a manicure and paint your nails red for the holidays! And, if you're feeling brave, add sparkles! This works like magic.

Watch Christmas movies.
This is one of the truest and most classic ways to feel the spirit of Christmas. You already know that Christmas movies have happy endings, which will make you smile. I made a list of the best and recently added 2023 Christmas movies to Netflix.



Take a stroll through your city to see the Christmas lights and decorations.
When we visited Glasgow's George Square city centre last week, it was busy with people enjoying the roller coaster, selling hotdogs, hot chocolate drinks, candies, and roasting marshmallows in the cold. I was in the mood to sing Christmas songs because of the gorgeous Christmas trees and lights.

The Christmas lights on the streets of your city have a beautiful way of kindling the Christmas spirit and inspiring you to participate. Take a walk to the city centre, purchase some hot tea or coffee, go skating, and take part in street events.



I hope these suggestions work out well for you. I also wish you have a wonderful Christmas and a successful new year.

  7. Hi Melody! Thanks for visiting my blog. I'm impressed by yours and especially that you've been doing this for over a decade. Blogging is hard so that required commitment.

    Your fashion style is very chic. Kudos on that. I'll be back to pick up tips.

    I hope you enjoy living in Scotland. My best friend lives in Wales right now and I've long dreamed of hiking through the two places for their uncommon beauty.

  20. Hello Melody,:=)
    You are so pretty, as well as elegant, and model the pink dress beautifully. It is a lovely creation, and I'm all for dressing up at Christmas. Thank you for your good Christmas tips, most of which I practice like listening to Christmas music days before Christmas, but I have never painted my nails red, perhaps it's time I did.:=)
    My best wishes
    Sonjia.

  21. Hello again :=)
    I realised when I read your comment again, that I didn't answer your question. The discovery of the Firecrest was the most exciting thing I discovered. The Firecrest visited my balcony for the first time last year about this time, but I had my doubts if it would return. Seeing it again made my day.

  26. Hi, Melody (beautiful name, by the way). I've recently found your comment in my spam folder and decided to check out your website.

    Oh, lucky you, I love Scotland! Edinburgh is such a charming city, I had a pleasure to visit it a few years ago. I enjoyed it thoroughly.

    I totally agree with your tips: Christmassy music, markets, films and decorations play a huge role. I won't lie, I went slighthly overboard with my decorations this year, but you know what? I love them all. Have a great Christmas.
