With Winter upon us, and many of us spending more time indoors because of Covid-19, keeping our homes warm and cozy has never been more important. This Christmas might not feel like most, but there are still lots of ways to spread the Christmas spirit and to feel connected to everyone you love.
To get you going, we’ve put together a list of little things that you can do to make this Christmas as merry as possible.
Hang up the Christmas decorations
Winter can feel a bit gloomy but a Christmas tree, some scented candles, sparkly lights and other festive decorations will surely put a smile on your face. Don’t hesitate to throw some pretty lights on railings, door frames and windows to give a bit of Christmas joy to your neighbors and people strolling down the street.
Get cooking or baking
Video call a friend and have a bake-off together, cook a delicious meal with your family or housemates, make some treats for the neighbors or whip up some biscuits and decorate them together. There’s nothing like food that brings people together.
Send little pick-me-ups
Christmas is the perfect time for cards and wishes. As you write up your Christmas cards, why not pop in an extra message? Just a few little lines to show someone that you’re thinking of them. Or how about leaving some sweet scribbles around the Cohabs house for your fellow housemates?
Watch a movie
It’s often the little things that make us feel connected and watching a movie is a great way to do that. Put on your fleecy jumper and warm socks, snuggle under a bunch of blankets, pick your movie and watch it with your housemates or whilst on Skype with your friends. Netflix even has a ‘Party’ extension for watching movies and series with friends online. Make sure you make some hot cocoa too!
“Did you say a winter barbecue?” Maybe your family or housemates have to get used to the idea. But when you explain to them what a winter barbecue is exactly, they’ll be convinced in no time. But in cold Denmark, they have been doing it for years. Create a cozy winter atmosphere with garden lighting, fire pits and blankets to keep you warm.
