Although Christmas day is just a single day in the entire year, it doesn’t mean that our festive spirit needs to go away once the day is over. To help you enjoy the holidays for longer, we’ve put together a few suggestions for you to try out.

Leave your decorations up a little longer 
Be a little lazier by taking your Christmas decorations down a little later this year. There’s no official rule for this unless you want to stick to tradition, so leave them up for a little longer to stay in the festive mood.

Save those leftovers 
Stock up on extra Christmas party snacks and leftover turkey. Use it in sandwiches, pies, curries or even extra parties!

Do some more shopping 
Retailers usually don’t take down their Christmas decorations for some time and the streets will be packed with people looking for deals–it’ll feel like Christmas shopping all over again!

Don’t stop giving 
Have some leftover chocolates no one wanted? Were you gifted a few too many sugary sweets? Pack them up and give them to friends and neighbours for some humble post-Christmas gifting.

Keep those Christmas films on
For some people, Die Hard is as much a Christmas film as Gremlins. There are so many choices for Christmas films that you could have a film night with your friends and family every night leading up to the New Year and beyond if you wanted to.

  13. I love keeping the festivities going until New Year’s Day. I don’t understand why so many people have taken their tree down already - it’s quite sad! x

  14. I'm such a nightmare, I take everything down ASAP after christmas, I think its just because I live alone with my son, it's just depressing looking at it lol, plus I like a fresh start after Christmas :)
