4: Listen to Christmas music.
Turn on the holiday tunes… pop a cd into your car player, or even at work to brighten your holiday spirits. You can also try Pandora Radio on the computer, which allows you to search for an type pf music and creates a station suited to your likes (I personally love it and can listen to it from my phone which is great). When you get home, play the local radio Christmas station while you cook dinner to make things more fun.
My favs are always Diana Krall, The Charlie Brown Christmas, and any jazz (like the Pottery Barn compilations). And I will always love “All I want for Christmas is You” by Maria Carey. What are your favorites?
