How do you keep the Christmas spirit alive during the months following Christmas and the New Year when society is no longer into the holiday spirit mood?

Aside from the usual, "keep the Christmas Spirit always in your heart", I still listen to Christmas songs in my car, and soon, once that passes, Ill make sure Ill listen to it every 24th/25th of the month. It certainly helps.

Ill check out some sites and listen to Christmas MIDI music.

And now that I found this site, Ill be visiting this place daily!

I'm grasping at everything I can this year to keep the spirit alive! It was just such a wonderful Christmas, I don't want it to end! I am definately not done listening to Christmas music yet (I have my Chritmas cd's in our vehicles) & my goal is try & watch 1 Christmas movie a week. It's not going to happen this week, but I have been busy working on my Christmas scrapbook & that definately helps to keep the Christmas spirit alive. I just finished Christmas 2004 & 2005 last week...I think it is almost more fun to do older pictures, b/c you see a picture & think "oh yeah...I remember that, I almost forgot..." So maybe there's a reason I was so far behind on my pictures! But the greatest way to keep the spirit is to log on here & catch up with other Christmas fanatics in the world!

A Christmas Scrapbook is a nice idea to keep the spirit alive all year. I don't scrapbook but would like to and I know they take time. So that is something that you could work on throughout the year and keep adding to it Christmas after Christams. Nice idea Holiday.
