HAVE YOURSELF A MERRY LITTLE CHRISTMAS - Part II
So to continue the list from yesterday, here are more ideas:
~ Tie a bow on your pet's collar.
~ Give your place in the checkout line to someone who looks like they have had a hard day.
~ Wrap your child's bedroom door like a present.
~ Make it a holiday practice to do something without telling them you did it.
~ Make your family feel just as important as your holiday company.
~ Add a new Christmas cassette or CD to your collection each year.
~ Dress the kids for bed, then get in the car to see Christmas lights.
~ Keep plenty of Apple Cider and microwave popcorn on hand for unexpected guests.
~ Let someone else have the parking space you've just found. Think of it as a gift to a stranger.
~ This Christmas, write letters to several people who have had a positive influence on your life. Thank them for the gift they have given you.
~ Buy something from students holding a Christmas bake sale and tell them to keep the change.
~ Cut others - as well as yourself - more slack than usual.
~ Take a walk with someone you love on Christmas afternoon.
~ Turn off the lights and put on "White Christmas." Ask your spouse to dance.
~ Pay the toll for the car behind you during the week of Chrismas.
~ Don't try to do everything yourself. Ask for help.
~ Decorate the backs of dining chairs with bows or stockings.
~ Don't forget to hang the mistletoe.
~ After opening all the presents, hug all your family members and tell them they are the best gift of all.
Make it a good holiday!
