Need Christmas spirit? Here are a couple Christmas Ideas
Yep…it’s that time again…YEAHHHHHHHHHHHHH, time for Christmas Ideas. We love Xmas here at Little Monkey Rentals. With two of our own little monkeys the Christmas holidays are fun fun fun. We took out the Xmas decorations today (Nov 12) and with the boss’ permission will hopefully start putting them up this weekend. Although…too early for the boss (The One and Only Scrooge) but never to early for the rest of us. 🙂
Some of the activities we like to do to get ready for the holidays are:
Look for the perfect Christmas tree (Couple weeks b4 Xmas)
In the car and with family, head out on a Christmas tree search. Whether you visit a tree lot or stroll through the woods, it’s hard to not catch the Christmas spirit surrounded by Christmas trees and that wonderful smell of pine or fir.
Have a night of hot chocolate and tree decorating
Make decorating the Christmas tree together a special Christmas tradition. Take the time to remember where loved Christmas ornaments came from, and what makes them special. Try a few new Christmas decoration ideas.
Think of other families
For some families, the holidays may be a hard time to celebrate. Talk to your kids about how you can help a family in need. Let your kids pick from charities or families at their school who might not have the resources to purchase their children what they want. Then donate either money or toys.
Play Christmas Songs
Tune in to Christmas stations Songza and let the Christmas songs fill your house and car with those awesome songs.
Have a Christmas movie night
Make Christmas ornaments
How about this for Christmas Ideas? Creating a new ornament each year is a wonderful Christmas tradition. The children get excited when they see their handmade decorations from years past hanging on the tree.
Visit Santa Claus
Nothing says Christmas is coming like the arrival of Santa Claus and his elves. Who doesn’t like to head to the mall for the obligatory “sit on Santa’s lap” So, why not take a break from shopping and let the kids sit on Santa’s lap and tell him what they would like for Christmas this year…if they will sit there for more than 2 seconds.
Drive around to see Christmas lights
Time to load the Family car with the family and head to the very bright neighborhoods. This is our favorite activity to do come the holidays. We have done this for over 20 years….way before we had kids. I must say it is just as magical 20 years later. Maybe you will be inspired with a few new Christmas decoration ideas.
With all these Christmas ideas, no matter how the Christmas Holidays are celebrated with you and yours, the important thing is that you do it together with your friends and family.
Merry Xmas and Happy Holidays from everyone here at Little Monkey Rentals.
