90 Ways to Celebrate Christmas

My granddaughters Faith and Lily 2013

Wishing you a Merry Christmas

1. First and foremost...remember the reason for the season!
2. Donate a gift or two to Toys For Tots.
3. Make a New Years Resolution and stick with it!
4. Deck the halls with lots of festive colors and glowing lights.
5. Play Secret Santa at home or at work. Remember it's a secret, so ssshhh!
6. Bake Christmas cookies and eat enough to cause a sugar coma! Not really, but enjoy them!
7. Mail holiday cards to soldiers or a care package filled with seasonal goodies.
8. Go to the local church holiday play, the children will generate a smile for you.
9. Have each family member create an ornament for the tree. Make it a yearly tradition!
10. Place antlers and a red nose on your dog and go for a stroll around your neighborhood while singing Rudolph The Red Nosed Reindeer! Ignore the weird glances.
11. Watch one or all of the animated holiday specials on TV while eating caramel popcorn.
12. Dress like an elf and visit a children's hospital and pass out candy canes. Clear this good deed with security beforehand.
13. Drive through the seedy part of your city...honk your horn and chant Ho! Ho! Ho! Be sure your car doesn't have a tendency to stall.
14. For those of you with a Wendy's restaurant...enjoy a Frosty while singing Frosty The Snowman!
15. Using food coloring serve green mash potatoes as a side dish or red rice!
16. Wrap a small gift in a small box, place that box in a larger box, and then a larger one. The recipients expression is priceless. Payback is bound to happen when you least expect it.
17. For men: Wear a holiday tie to work.
18. For women: Wear a seasonal brooch to work.
19. Slowly sip some hot cocoa by the fireplace while wearing a snuggie and nothing else! Uh oh!
20. Send e-cards to your internet friends! BlueMountain.com and AmericanGreetings.com both offer free cards!
21. Poke your Facebook friends while singing Jingle Bells!
22. Light up your home so that Santa could spot it from the North Pole! Your power bill might be a bit higher than usual!
23. Pop open a bottle of bubbly and let it flow, let it flow, let it flow.
24. Host a holiday party and make it a requirement that all guests wear either red or green.
25. Be jolly while picking some holly to create a table centerpiece for a holiday meal.
26. Build a huge snowman and take some family photos before the dog relieves himself on it!
27. If you have no snow used shaved ice! Be creative!
28. Give the mail carrier a fruitcake, go ahead I dare you!!!
29. Plant a holly bush in honor of someone you are missing.
30. Place a sign near the chimney for Santa..."ENTER HERE"
31. For men: Go out with two friends and pretend the three of you are wise:)
32. Write a letter to Santa with your requests...all ages apply!
33. On Dec. 23rd text your friends and say "I hope you had a nice Christmas" they'll wonder for a second or two if you have lost it or they missed it! It's worth a shot!
34. Have a snowball fight...all ages apply! No snow? Use white water balloons!
35. Prank phone call Santa and ask to speak to the Easter Bunny!
36. Never allow Grandma to cross the road alone, reindeers aren't the best drivers. We don't want her to get run over!
37. Bake a cake and sing Happy Birthday to Jesus.
38. Stand under the mistletoe wearing only a big red bow and hope your honey is the first one to walk in the front door!
39. Have all your shopping done before Christmas eve!
40. Take the kids to sit on Santa's lap....all ages apply.
41. 12 days before Christmas start drinking to numb the pain of your first post holiday credit card bill!
42. Have all kids toys assembled before Christmas morning and be prepared with batteries. For the toys! No, the childrens toys! Duh!
43. For women: Wear lots of glitter, sequins and sparkles!
44. For men: Dress up as Santa except instead of pants wear holiday boxers and walk around Walmart singing Redneck Christmas by Ray Stevens! Go ahead, I dare you!
45. Give a pet as a gift to someone who will give it lots of TLC (tender, loving, care)

And a Happy New Year

46. Make reindeer food! Place oatmeal and red & green sugar crystals in a shaker container and sprinkle some food on the front lawn.
47. Roast chestnuts by an open fire. Be sure and extinguish the fire when you are done!
48. Nip at Jack Frost's nose! Use your imagination here.
49. Listen to Justin Bieber's Mistletoe song while wearing ear plugs!
50. Spike the eggnog and keep on spiking!
51. Give a gift to a stranger just because.
52. Look confused when someone says "Merry Christmas," enjoy their reaction!
53. Play strip poker using a deck of Coke Santa cards!
54. Tie the knot! Get merrily married!
55. Wear loose fitting clothing. Eat whatever you want. Don't count calories!
56. Take a nightly stroll and admire your neighbors holiday decorations.
57. Continue to believe in Santa, if you do. If you don't, that's ok too!
58. Place random gifts under the tree with no name tags! We all enjoy a surprise!
59. Stomp on your neighbor's roof and make reindeer sounds. Get clearance from your neighbor first or hope that he's not trigger happy!
60. Be naughty and not nice.
61. Be nice and not naughty. The choice is yours!
62. Buy gifts that were "MADE IN AMERICA!"
63. Donate time at a homeless shelter.
64. Offer to decorate an elderly neighbors home or their tree!
65. Create and give away homemade gift certificates. Car wash, walk their pets, mow a lawn, babysit their kids...etc.
66. Go ahead enjoy that extra slice of pie! It's also time to spike that eggnog again!
67. Buy a holiday meal for a struggling family.
68. Support a small business during the holiday shopping season. They will appreciate it!
69. If traveling by car, pay the highway toll for the driver in back of you!
70. If traveling by plane, in mid-flight start a sing-along with the holiday favorite of Here Comes Santa Claus! I wish you luck with that plan!!
71. Do you know a Grinch? Try to convert them! You never know, your plan might work!
72. Start a new tradition!
73. Go on a sleigh ride!
74. Use common courtesy when dealing with the hustle and bustle of the crazed Christmas season!
75. Tis the season to avoid drama and conflict! We can wish it away!
76. Have your family and friends join Facebook that way you can avoid having to write the Christmas newsletter! Does anyone ever really read them?
77. Phone a friend or family member you lost contact with just to say We Wish You A Merry Christmas!
78. Bring a few poinsettia's to a nursing home and help cheer up lonely residents.
79. Be understanding and show compassion for those who aren't in the holiday spirit. Not everyone is expected to be merry this time of year.
80. When in doubt for a gift, purchase a gift card! No returns needed!
81. On Christmas eve wear your cutest pajamas cause you never know who you might bump in to while going for a midnight snack.
82. Drive through town in search of Christmas displays while listening to holiday music!
83. If you know someone who is alone for the holidays invite them over!
84. Try not to stress! Take a walk, go to the gym, remember to relax! If all else fails then continue to spike the eggnog.
85. Plan a family dinner and reminisce about previous holidays. Select the pleasant memories to avoid conflict!
86. Wear tinsel garland as a scarf while dashing through errands and hum fa, la, la, la, la, la, la, la, la. You would be considered free entertainment!
87. Take into consideration that this is the most wonderful time of the year...so let's eat, drink and be merry. If not, oh well, at least you tried.
88. If you decorate a live tree, be sure and tend to it.
89. If you decorate an artificial tree, no tending needed. My favorite.
90. To all a Merry Christmas and a Happy New Year!

Time with family is one of my favorite ways...

Very nicely done. I enjoyed your list of 90 ways to have a Merry Christmas....I would add...when the wind is calm and all my outdoor decorations stay in place...there is nothing worse than a Homer Simpson inflatible breaking loose and moving next door.

On a more serious note....watching my 2 year old watch the rotating Christmas tree...is lots of fun....voted up funny and very interesting.

This is great:) my eyes skipped a line and I read the : If you're a man: Wear a seasonal brooch to work! LOL I looked again because I couldn't believe it and duh:) oh - I laughed all the way through though so hilarious:).

I usually buy a new ornament with the year one it each season....last time I tried to get crafty I glued buttons to my fingers with my new hot glue gun;) lol


Sunshine625 profile image

Sunshine625 5 years ago from Orlando, FL Author

Hey Cogerson..."rocking around the christmas tree" would be a perfect song for a rotating tree!

Hey Real Deal...We also buy or make a new ornament each year, this year we'll be making them. No glue gun required! :))

ThomasRydder 5 years ago

Hi Sunshine!! Gotta tell ya, I just LOVED this..silly girl! Guess I took it too much to heart, though...I decided to try a couple of them. Well...I only got through one, actually-um-well, not all the way through. We have a run-down neighborhood not too far away, see. So, I decided to bring them a little holiday cheer. I lowered the windows and leaned out, crying "HO HO HOOOOO...Merry Christmas!!" It's funny..as soon as the first HO was out, all the women started for the car. It's ok, though...even though I have limited mobility, I can still type. I'll wait until after Christmas to have my lawyer get in touch. :)TR

Singing Christmas carols out loud is fun, too, though I might not try for a sing-a-long on an airplane. You could pull it off, though! This needed to be shared, so I did! :)

What a cute picture of Faith and Lily!

90 Ways to have a Merry Christmas by the Queen of Lists - priceless! Doing less than half of these every year will certainly lift the season out of its current craziness based on shopping and over-spending on food and gifts.

All I want for Christmas is to be able to reach into my screen and give a huge hug and kiss on the cheek of Faith & Lily....the cutest, most precious little girls in the world!! Awwww.......looks like Faith is a perfect BIG sister!......How sweet.

Hard to believe it's been another year GF. Guess what I read from beginning to end yesterday, including every comment?? A Letter to Jose Baez, written by someone very dear to me.....:) It was a nice walk down memory Lane for me.....

Hi Sunshine625,

You little Angels are growing more beautiful every time I see them.

Hugs to you and yours Dear One,

Another Christmas! Are the years flying by faster....or am I getting younger and just moving quicker?? HA! Yeah sure. As the Everly Bros. sang...."That'll Be the Day!!"

All I want for Christmas this year is really, really REALLY, "PEACE ON EARTH, GOODWILL TOWARD MAN." Let's hold hands and hope and pray for tears to turn to smiles, fears make way for comfort, Joy & laughter replace the screams of pain & fear.

I wish everyone a Blessed Holiday Season and recommend you find one or more of the wonderful 90 ways Sunshine has suggested, to have a very Merry Christmas!! Peace, Paula
