How Do You Get In the Holiday Spirit?

We've been talking a lot about Christmas songs and favorite holiday movies around here, and this week is another one full of seasonal TV specials (Frosty and Frosty Returns both air on CBS on Wednesday). Feeling festive yet?

I'm wondering how you prefer to get into the holiday spirit. Are you more likely to turn to music, movies, or TV specials?

'Maybe this Christmas Tree' is such a good compilation album...I listen to Death Cab's "Baby Please Come Home" year round! I definitely love the Christmas music!

Cooking! That always gets me in the holiday mood. Cookies, pies, yummy stews and stuff.

I have to hear Christmas tunes while I'm putting the tree up, driving, wrapping presents, eating, or shopping.

It's mostly the movies and holiday specials, like Charlie Brown Christmas and Christmas Vacation, that REALLY get me feeling festive. But of course, the Christmas tunes on the radio are great too!

I love putting up decorations, listening to Christmas music (especially Mariah Carey), making peppermint fudge, watching those Rankin/Bass holiday specials, and the classic Christmas movies. Every Christmas Eve, we watch It's a Wonderful Life. We also participate in Bay area holiday celebrations like Christmas in the Park and driving by the Xmas lights at Vasona.

The Grinch who stole Christmas! The book, the 1966 Movie, they make my two-sizes-too-small heart burst! I love Christmas music, but for some reason, it makes me really teary.

OMG Bellabrunette. "Last Christmas" is my favorite Christmas song. I even listen to it when it isn't Christmas (lol!). But I look forward to the holidays to listen songs like that as well as watching stuff like The Charlie Brown Christmas Special, which I love!

my favorite christmas song to get me excited is "baby, it's cold outside," even though it's not the most child friendly song. the melody is just so catchy and cute!

Definitely songs - although I love 80's classics like "Last Christmas" by Wham! and "Do They Know It's Christmas" by BandAid.

All of the above, plus baking! >y three year old son is picking out his Christmas favorites this year too. So far, Charlie Brown's Christmas is his number one.

Christmas (Eve) baby in the house! I celebrate as soon as I can in as many ways as I can. Decorate the house, play the music, drive around looking at lights, scented candles and pine cones, food (only time of year I bake!). I love it ALL! :rudolph: :hohoho:
