How to be a little Merry Christmas (but not in a bad way)

Posted February 24, 2019 08:16:00 Happy New Year!

This is a holiday that everyone deserves, but sadly many people feel they don’t get enough love, love, and a lot of it.

So here are five simple ways to celebrate this year and a few tricks to make your Christmas an enjoyable one.

1.

Say Merry Christmas to yourself before you go out and meet other people.

If you are feeling a little more alone, and you have a bit more time to get together with other people, say a prayer.

Say the name of a friend who is a little less lonely.

Say, “You’re welcome to come join us at my house, you are welcome to join us to celebrate the birth of our little girl.”

It’s a really simple and comforting way to say Merry Christmas.

2.

Take a selfie with your face in front of a tree.

This may sound silly, but it’s the perfect way to take your first step on the Christmas journey.

If there are trees in the way, simply stand there with your head slightly bowed and your eyes closed, as this is the best way to capture the spirit of the season.

3.

Put your hands over your heart, say, “O God, who gave us this gift and who sent us to you, do we not ask you to make us worthy of this gift?”

This may seem weird at first, but when you say this it gives your heart a little extra strength.

If it’s a little chilly out, or if it’s rainy and you don’t want to be cold, try to imagine that you are holding a bowl of warm cereal in your hands.

4.

Take photos of yourself with a mirror.

This can be a pretty great way to remember that the world is a beautiful place full of joy, and we all deserve to have the opportunity to share in that joy.

When you take a photo of yourself, try not to think about what you’re wearing or your face or what you say.

Just take a snapshot of yourself and then enjoy the moment.

5.

Get out your camera.

You can do this year with a camera you already own.

It doesn’t have to be expensive or anything like that.

Just bring your phone and snap a picture of yourself.

Just try to remember to take the photo in the best light possible.

It could be the best picture you ever take.
