With Thanksgiving over and December around the corner, some people need to gradually get in the Christmas spirit. These steps will turn Scrooge into Buddy the Elf to fully enjoy this Christmas season.

Step 1: Drink Hot Chocolate
Maybe even splurge a bit and put some peppermint in it. Hot chocolate is perfect for the first cold day of the season. Drink it after school. Forget about homework for an hour, it’s healthy.

Step 2: Watch a Hallmark Christmas movie
With literally hundreds to watch, the only thing difficult about this step-pick which one. The predictable storylines and cheesy music gives a surface level Christmas buzz to get in the right mindset.

Step 3: Wear Fuzzy Socks
Not only does cause warmth, but it also provides the whole body comfort. Plus most of them have a Christmas theme. Wear them around the house and show everyone the Christmas spirit while sliding around the kitchen.

Step 4: Listen to Christmas Music
Even if it is before Thanksgiving (Come at me bro), Christmas music really marks the season as one of its own. Hundreds of playlists to listen to on Spotify all have classics on them like, Mariah Carey, Michael Buble and Justin Bieber to get in the Christmas mood.

Step 5: Drive and look at Christmas Lights
Grab your best friends and hop in the car to go see what the neighbors put up this year. Make a cup of hot chocolate to enjoy during the show. Map out which roads will have the most lights, and then create a scoring sheet to see which house has the best decorations.

Step 6: Buy a Gift
Buy a gift for a friend, it puts you in a good mood and will be a pleasant surprise. Even though the best way to spread Christmas cheer is singing loud for all to hear, buying someone else a gift is a close second.

Step 7: Put Up Decorations
Stores and public places put up their decorations right after Halloween. Decorations officially start the Christmas season. Make sure while decorating the tree, you drink hot chocolate, wear fuzzy socks and listen to Christmas to embody the whole atmosphere.
