We’ve all heard it. Merry Christmas! How can you not hear it? It’s a simple, yet beautiful phrase that your family and friends will surely be singing all night long. Christmas is the perfect time to share your joy and celebrate the season with foods that are sweet and savory at the same time. A festive meal, of course, means you have to make it some way! The best way to show off your holiday cheer and enjoy some delicious food in one fell swoop is by making these adorable Merry Christmas! Cupcakes. These cupcakes are filled with yummy spiced rum, vanilla cream cheese filling, meringue powder, and a layer of fluffy egg white frosting. They’re also decorated with Christmas tree cookies which add another layer of fun to the picture. For a truly unique treat, try adding sprinkled ornaments onto the top of each cupcake as well as pipe tiny reindeer horns on top of the frosting (additional supplies available in party stores).
How To Respond To Merry Christmas!
Talk to Your Neighbor About Their Reaction
This might sound obvious, but how often do you actually talk to your neighbors about how they’re celebrating? I know I don’t. Every year I go through a phase where I spend the whole month of December ignoring Christmas. Then when my family gets here in January, I can barely talk to anyone because I’ve been in a state of shock. It’s extremely helpful to talk to your neighbors about how they’re celebrating and why. This way, you’ll be prepared for what to say and avoid awkward silences.
Don’t Over-Cultivate the Spirit of Yule
It’s easy to get carried away during the holidays when it comes to Christmas sugar. You might even add a few extra spoonfuls of sugar to your coffee or tea just to be on the safe side. But excess sugar doesn’t help anyone, and it definitely doesn’t help the Spirit of Yule. You don’t need to bake a million Christmas cookies or serve a dozen different kinds of holiday desserts. What you do need to do is limit your holiday intake. Limit your intake of sweets and carbohydrates. Sugar is bad for you, and carbohydrates are not good for you. Eat mainly fruits, vegetables, and whole grains. And while you’re at it, avoid any foods with the words “sugar” or “sweet” in the name.
Make It a Community Celebration
As with most things, staying within limits leads to better outcomes. You don’t have to do everything by yourself. You don’t have to celebrate Christmas on your own. Instead of keeping it all for yourself, celebrate it with your neighbors! The best way to do this is to invite them over for a holiday meal. At the end of the meal, tell them that you and your family would love it if they would keep the meal warm for the rest of the month. This way, you won’t have to spend a single second feeling self-conscious worrying that they won’t like the food or will think it’s too spicy or too heavy on Issey Miyake.
Have an Escape Day Every Week
It’s so easy to let the stresses of the season get to you, but taking a day every week where you don’t have to do anything and where you can focus on having fun would be so, so, so much healthier. Escape Day should be a priority for every single person in your life. Even if you think you don’t need to take one every month, see how you feel the next week. If you feel a bit overwhelmed or stressed out, you can always take one day off. But for most people, it’s a lifesaver. So, the next time you’re feeling like the stress of the season is getting to you, take one day off and focus on your wellbeing. You’ll feel so much better—and be so much more prepared for the future.
Have An Escape Day Every Week
This one is a no-brainer. You deserve an escape day every week. Even if it’s just for an hour or two. Taking a break from everything and just being with yourself is the only thing that will help you during this time of year. What could you do for an hour or two? Possibly watch some Netflix (yes, really) or go for a walk in the woods. Go sit in your backyard and listen to the crickets. Whatever you do, don’t spend your escape day in front of the TV. Even if you must watch the latest episode of your favorite show, take a break and walk instead.
Help Others Cope With The Seasonal Changes
We’re just at the beginning of the season, so it’s still early. But before you start thinking about what you need to get done for the coming months, take a moment to think about all of the people who will be going through a lot this season, and don’t do anything to make them feel bad or left out. If you’re feeling generous, head over to your local grocery store and buy them something homemade. If you’re not able to do that, think about how you can help out a friend. The holidays are a time for giving, and you don’t need to do anything extravagant. All you need to do is be there for someone else.
What do You need To Know Before You Start Merry Christmas?
1) Don’t wait to decorate. Decorating is an important part of the holiday season, so don’t wait until the last minute. If you have a tree, put it up right after Thanksgiving. If you have lights, string them up right after Thanksgiving.
2) Don’t forget about your gifts! You don’t want to go through the holidays without giving any presents to anyone! And if it’s someone close to you, don’t forget about their birthday or anniversary. You don’t want to be left out at the end of the season with nothing for your loved ones!
3) Make sure you remember everyone! The holidays are a time for family and friends, so make sure you see everyone or write down all of their contact information. Write notes on your phone and on your computer calendar so that you can remember everyone and take care of them this holiday season.
4) Keep track of all birthdays and anniversaries! This one is important because it could be easy to miss someone if they aren’t close to you or if they aren’t very frequent visitors to your house. So make sure that no one slips through the cracks!
5) Be prepared for what may happen during this time of year. You never know when someone will get sick or when school will start back up again (it will probably be around this time). So make sure that everything is ready and that no one gets left behind!
6) If you’re feeling generous, give gifts to friends and family members. Christmas is a time for giving, but it’s also a time for receiving. So don’t be afraid to give gifts to your loved ones this holiday season.
7) Don’t forget about birthdays or anniversaries! Birthdays and anniversaries are important parts of the holiday season too, so make sure that you remember all of your loved ones!
I hope this helped you get a better understanding of what it’s like to be in the Christmas season. There are many different traditions and ways to celebrate Christmas, but the most important thing is that you learn what part you play at this time of year. It can be easy to forget about everyone else while you’re busy decorating and preparing for the holidays, but don’t let that happen to you! Decorate your house and take care of your loved ones this holiday season, because they will be very thankful for it!
