7 Ways to Spread Holiday Cheer to Your Neighbors
This time of year is a stand out time to spread joy and happiness. There is just something in the air that makes it feel oh so right. Three years ago I wrote a blog called 8 Ideas to Share Your Baking Joy During the Holidays. It was all about nifty ways to package baked goods to delight upon your neighbors during the holidays. This year I thought, how about expanding it past baked goods? I mean don’t get me wrong, cookies, peppermint bark and homemade cupcakes in a jar are fabulous but they certainly aren’t the only way you can spread holiday cheer to your neighbors. Apartment living can be tricky because you are sharing so many of your walls and flooring with other people who a lot of times you have never even met. This is the perfect time of year to come out and just do something nice for the person that you are living literally on top of, beside or underneath. We had a resident who each holiday would decorate the breezeways for her neighbors and it was something that made them smile and that is what life is about, ya know? Doing good and doing for others. You never know what difference you could be making in someone’s life just by the teeny tiniest act of kindness. So without further adieu, here are 7 ways to spread holiday cheer to your neighbors this season – from the ones you hang out with, to the ones you’ve never even seen or said hi to.
1. A Simple Card
Cards are wonderful way to make someone’s day. When you think about spreading holiday cheer, cards often come to mind because the power of words, as well as the gesture of card giving can be so incredibly impactful. However, not knowing if someone even celebrates any of the holidays this season can be the rub. So if you are unsure, stick to a card that doesn’t specify which holiday unless you are positive they do in fact celebrate it. They make beautiful blank cards these days or ones that simply say “happy holidays“. You would just simply need to write a short and sweet handwritten message on the inside if it was blank or if you just wanted to add your own flare to any text that may already be inside of the card. If you get stumped as to what to write, hereis a great site that offer ideas for the handwritten part of your card that include but aren’t limited to general wishes of joy and wishes for a wonderful new year.
