That Christmas-y mood

:iconferaltao:
FeralTao Featured By Owner Dec 10, 2012
With precisely two weeks left until Christmas Eve today it's about time to start getting into a Christmas-spirit of sorts. I know I don't get into that spirit easily and need something to help me along. For me it is (cheezy as it might be), the movie Love Actually. And wrapping Christmas presents.

So I was wondering - What puts you in the proper mood to celebrate Christmas? :)

I'm not in the Christmas mood yet. I'm still disappointed that our choir cancelled the charity choir performance :(

I've wrapped all presents except the edibles, I've made all candy and the quornballs, I've watched Gremlings and The Muppets Christmas Carol and put up the few decorating things that we're going to have up. Oh, and it's snow enough to drown outside.

Am I in the Christmas spirit? No... not really. I sort of look forward to Christmas but I wouldn't say that I feel any Christmasy feelings.

Hear hear. Those pesky exams. I have one at 2 pm today and I suspect it might be a failure. But we'll see, it ain't over 'til it's over. :)

Have you gotten any baking done so far?

Very true! According to the "expert critics" in my family, aka mother I overdecorate the Christmas tree. Which is total poppycock since there is no such thing as an overdecorated Christmas tree. If you still see some tree there it's not done. :lol:

usually the movie "the christmas story" played on thanksgiving really preps me for christmas and get so excited! But this year it wasn't played on tv, and i've yet to watch my DVD of it..but seeing christmas lights and putting the tree up get me ready for it..i even bought and wrapped gifts last week. this year i'm depressed thoroughly so it's slightly hard to get into the " YAY CHRISTMAS" mood.

I felt a little Christmassy the other day because we actually had a little bit of snow. So I got my Mum's pressies sorted out. The rest of the family have to wait since theirs are all being made

I usually get into the Christmas spirit a few days before Christmas Eve (everything before then is just waiting for Christmas Eve); all my shopping is done now, god bless Amazon :)

To get me in the Christmas mood I have two definite must see movies: (Love Actually - I love the Keira Knightley and Andrew Lincoln story, and the whole thing is just fun to watch; and Polar Express) - mind you, why anyone would watch Polar Express after Christmas Eve is beyond me (it is the epitome of the Christmas Eve movie).

I also like watching Miracle on 34th Street (remake) and the 1st Home Alone movie, and not forgetting National Lampoon's Christmas Vacation on the days leading up to Christmas.

Christmas is all about family and being together and having a great time at the dinner table.

I haven't seen Polar Express. Perhaps I should get about doing so.

Do you and your family have any set Christmas traditions?

WalkinginDreamlight Featured By Owner Dec 12, 2012  Hobbyist General Artist
Polar Express is such a wonderful movie :)

We open presents on the morning and then the family get together around the lunch table for a fantastic christmas lunch.

That's about it.

Yes, I've ordered him a a magazine that will go to his house every month, hes been finding it hard to get back into 3D because he hasn't got a job and lost motivation. That some clothes, a box of sweeties and hopefully a love letter and a book of all the things I like. Lets see :)

Well I'm in a mood with him now so I may pinch the magazines! Haha, nawh, iunno, he has done a lot for me, and has really cared for me when I needed it the most. I never really have money, so I wanted to go a little over board to make him happy :P

That's really nice. :) That's part of why I like Christmas. It's a good time to thank people who've done something nice for you during the year without it feeling too mushy.

I try to leave little love letters, or notes, or cheer-me-up post it notes, I like catching him off guard and knowing I made him smile after I went home.
