Latinitas - A Strong Voice for Latina Youth

Christmas Spirit...I might need a little!

Everyone around me seems to already feel their Christmas spirit. My peers have already posted their Christmas tree pictures on facebook and changed their profile picture to something festive...My neighbors have decorated their house beautifully...I on the other hand have not gotten into the Christmas spirit yet. I still have my profile picture with my cat, my house is plain and un-christmasy and my tree is still in a box. It might be that I have so much things to do from the university and everyday life, that I haven't had the time to really think about it.

When I talk to my family and friends they encourage me to start decorating the house and putting Christmas lights, but I haven't done this yet. Part of the reason is because decorating for Christmas can be so expensive, and I don't want to spend the money on that. For example, I went shopping with a friend of mine, I fell in love with this small blue tree at Walmart, and had to leave it there...60 dollars for a small Christmas tree it too much in my book! I also looked at other merchandise but I just wasn't feeling it...

I want to eventually decorate my home and enjoy some Coquito (Puerto Rican drink) with my husband. This will be the first time we celebrate Christmas together as husband and wife. I need some inspiration to start getting motivated for this Christmas. What do you girls suggest? What do you usually do first for Christmas? Please leave some suggestions in the comment section below!
