Holiday Spirit or Just the Blues?

Don't forget the give aways for the week. You can visit them all here.


How do you get into the holiday spirit?

I have the hardest time every year trying to.
Seasonal depression does not help.
I do not really like holidays at all.

But I really want to.


Tell me what helps you get excited about this time of year.

Personally, I do no like the large expectations put on so much.
Lots of gift$ to buy with little money.
Tons of food to fix for so many and then tons of cleaning to do too!
Fear of disappointing people in every way.


I try playing holiday music to make me feel happy.
I light scented candles to make the place smell "good".
Decorations but not too soon.
I purchase gifts all year long to try and help out with the cost.


Share your holiday pick me ups.

  2. I'm so sorry you have a hard time during this season. That sucks because it comes on so strong!! I just love being with my extended family around the holidays, no matter what else is going on. That's what holidays are for me.
