Getting Into the Christmas Spirit

I can’t believe Christmas is less than a week away. It feels like time goes by faster every year. Getting into the Christmas spirit this week, I will be baking cookies, wrapping gifts, spending time with family, and watching my favorite Christmas movies. I thought I would help everyone else get into the holiday spirit by sharing some fun Christmas-related links. πŸ™‚ Enjoy!

The 10 most popular Christmas ads of 2016. My favorites are John Lewis’ Buster the Boxer, Heathrow Airport’s teddybears, Temptations’ cats, and Marks and Spencer’s badass Mrs. Claus.
