When Christmas was too invisible and you feel betrayed by the most bright holiday from the Childhood, comes the moment which my mom likes to name “make the mood by yourself”. Don’t feel like partying? Don’t wait for the holidays? Do not want to buy any presents because there is nothing special about these days?
Fake it till you make it.
Imagine. Force yourself and you won’t notice how the smile stuck to your face and you want to sing “Jingle Bells” or dance all night. The same thing is with Christmas or New Year, the holiday we loved the most because we believed in all the miracles.
Force yourself and you won’t notice how the smile stuck to your face and you want to sing “Jingle Bells” or dance all night over during the wedding.

And if, like any reasonable adult, think now that this day is like any other day, make the Winter-Christmas-New Yearly mood by yourself. How?

The great tale that life will change at 00:01 on January the first.
