The winter holidays are here again. At this wonderful time of the year, grown-ups can feel young again and kids can believe in magic. This makes it all the more ideal to add some Disney to the festivities. There are so many ways to do this that go beyond simply watching their classic movies, shows, and specials. Here are just five ways to have yourself a very Disney Christmas.
Christmas and Disney are a perfect match because anything can be merchandised to fit those themes. That includes holiday décor such as wreaths, snow globes, figurines, fridge magnets, kitchen towels, soap bars, night lights, picture frames, signs, and so much more. Major fans of the Mouse House could hypothetically deck not just the halls but their entire home with all their favorite characters. For the young and the young at heart, the effect can make for a more magical holiday.
The most iconic of all the Christmas decor is, of course, the Christmas tree, and no tree is truly complete without some ornaments. Why go for the traditional colorful spheres when you can change them out for trinkets shaped like Mickey Ears? You could also get ornaments in more unusual Disney-themed shapes or decorated with Disney-themed art. Remember to add a tree topper as the crown jewel of the set-up.
Food and Drinks
Arguably the sweetest part of the Christmas season is, well, the sweets. Disney offers plenty of delightful Christmas goodies, from candy cane popcorn to “really swell” hot chocolate to gummy snowmen and more. Of course, they also release plenty of Christmas-y candy with character. All these foods and beverages require plates and cups. You can get a perfect match for them with special dishes and mugs and the like, all themed to the day and to Disney.
Apparel and Pins
Men, women, and children alike can show their seasonal spirit and their love for Disney at the same time with special holiday apparel. It is the only time of year where you can wear Christmas-themed shirts, hats, socks, and classic sweaters. Plaid is also popular for wintertime, and you can find plaid clothes featuring fun designs and favorite characters. You can also find a massive assortment of Disney Christmas pins, including several themed to specific years of Christmas past.
Naturally, the heart of Christmas lies not in decorations, ornaments, food & drinks, or clothing, but in the act of giving. This time, more than any other in the year, encourages and inspires acts of kindness, generosity, and affection, especially towards loved ones. You can even show someone far away that they remain near in your heart with gestures such as mailing greeting cards. Before you ask, yes — of course, it can come with Disney artwork.
