Tis’ the season to get Christmassy!
Welcome to Blogmas!
Tis’ is the season to be merry and jolly!
Well, it is.
And I’m feeling like an elf, I almost looked up for my pointy ears! And, you must have noticed I’m not your regular author. Saw that, didn’t you?
Well then who AM I?
Well, folks know me as ‘The One Who Always Talks’ because DUH, I talk, ALWAYS!
And……let’s get on with the Christmassy stuff!
But what if you’re not feeling all Christmassy, cheery and merry? If you want to just snuggle up deep inside your bed and forget about all gift buying,
Then, you my friend have a big problem. Not even big, it’s humongous. You are suffering from-
No, it’s not coronavirus.
It’s much more dangerous, you are under the attack of
Oh my, bless you! Where did you catch that from?
Well, now that you’ve caught it. Let’s do something shall we? Being a common patient of “Holiday Blues”,
Here’s my list of things to help you get up and blitzin’-
This is like the most obvious step in the world of obviousness. But that doesn’t make it any less important! Get some classics (All I want for Christmas is You) something energizing, (Jingle Bell
Rock). And totally random stuff you associate with the season of gifts (like Lover by Taylor Swift).
2.Movies and books
Warning- Another obvious tip coming here. So, do you know the things you see, hear and watch influence how your mind processes? So, if you’ll see Christmas-related movies (Home Alone is a total must-watch), read Christmas related books (Do I even need to mention, A Christmas Carol?) and hear Christmas related music (DUH, the first step) your mind will have no other option than to turn into a whole walking-talking Christmas tree! Phew, lot of Christmas used here.
Bring out the ancient ladder and climb up to take out your treasured box of decoration! Personally speaking, we have a lot of memories with baubles. They’re like time-stamps of my life. There’s a little paper bauble I made in grade 3, one my sibling made in grade 5, photographic baubles etc. What I do with my family is that, we kids, take out all the decorations one by one, and our parents would remind us of the anecdotes that go with them! It’s really fun and a perfect vaccine for “Holiday Blues”!
4.The Outer World
Now, this isn’t an obvious tip. But you what really helps me get out of my “blue as blueberry” mood? Going out. Now, now I know, it’s COVID-19 time, and there are lockdowns. But that doesn’t mean you can’t have a virtual Christmas experience! Just go onto YouTube and type ‘Christmas celebrations’ or anything related to do. You can even have a virtual Christmas Party! Hop into your Christmas attire and have fun!
5.The Gifts and The Tree
We can’t forget the majestic tree, can we? As you probably have recovered from ‘Holiday Blues’ by this point, so you just want to get the tree up and the loving gifts all done. Well, again, Mr Covid is there first. So if you can’t get a full-fledged tree, just get a small dummy-thing. I promise it’ll be the same! It’s more about the feeling of joy, rather than the materials itself.
Well, well. Looks like the “Holiday Blues” are long gone! Congratulations! You won the Beating the Blues medal! And if you didn’t have blues to begin with, you’re already carrying the medal. Sneaky, hm?
I guess I won’t bother you anymore. Go on and start the process! It was fun participating in the Blogmas 2020 with Tall Blonde Tales! Until next time!
Now from me (Blondey on a Mission), I want to say a huge huge thank you both to The One who Always Talks for sharing such a fantastic guest post but also to all of you for reading today’s post and for following my Blogmas. With all of the abundance in holiday cheer and (sometimes) over-enthusiasm for everything sparkly, cinnamony and covered in tinsel, it can sometimes be difficult to enjoy the holidays if you may not be in that super cheery mood. I know that I definitely get the holiday blues momentarily throughout the holidays so I absolutely loved this post, plus it was just so fun to read and I hope you all loved it too!
Apart from that, that’s all I have for you all today – I hope you enjoy the last week or so of Blogmas!!
Lots of Love
