Streets are coated in lights, stores are playing festive music, and there’s happiness in the air; Christmas is surely arriving.

As the beloved holiday quickly approaches, it is so important to embrace the good times spent with family and friends because the holiday doesn’t last long enough.

On Christmas Eve, many go to a loved one’s house to share a meal with family and reflect on the birth of Jesus Christ while the children fill their hearts with the joy of Santa’s soon coming.

When Christmas Eve is over, people awake the next morning to gifts under the tree and the “Christmas Story” marathon on TBS.

However, when this day finally comes to a close, how do we stay excited for next year’s Christmas?

Well, according to Buddy the Elf in the movie “Elf,” “The best way to spread Christmas cheer is singing loud for all to hear.”

Christmas music can be played all year long to keep up the holly jolly spirit.

Who does not like listening to Mariah Carey’s “All I Want for Christmas is You” while having a pool party?

Christmas music can be played in the car, at home doing chores, or even when writing articles for the Southern.

It is always a good time for “Frosty the Snowman,” especially in Florida.

Another step to staying festive all year long is definitely believing.

“Sometimes the most real things in the world are the things we cannot see,” according to Hero Boy in the movie “The Polar Express.”

Having the spirit of Christmas in your heart all year could also be catching up on classic movies such as “A Christmas Carol” or “Home Alone.”

Every year on December 1, Freeform plays the 25 Days of Christmas movie marathon that can get anyone not feeling so jolly yet into the spirit.

If Freeform is not a channel offered to your TV subscription, the Hallmark channel always plays some great holiday favorites.

As Christmas rolls around this month, may you find peace and fun all year long.
