The holidays are a time for sharing love in whatever form. While there are countless ways to do this, we recommend these five ways. Gary Chapman, the author of The Love Languages, finds that the expression depends on the receiver’s preferences. Love languages are words of affirmation, physical touch, receiving gifts, quality time, as well as acts of service. It’s all about making the people around us feel good. So, here’s ways to spread the love this Christmas:
Spread the love this Christmas by doing these 5 things
Include your helpers on your gift list
Think about it. Life without your trusty house helpers would be much harder than it is now. So don’t forget to give them gifts as a thank you for all their hard work. A nice bag or a new pair of shoes will brighten up their day.
Tell your parents how much you appreciate them
Most of the time, being a parent is a thankless job so make the holidays an exception. Even though they say that there’s no need to, hearing you say ‘thank you’ will make their day.
Dedicate a day just for your family
Make sure to spread the love this Christmas to those closest to you. Give your spouse and kids all your attention for a full day. You can plan it out or simply as them what they want to do, anything goes.
Help your siblings run their Christmas errands
No matter how old you all become, siblings will always need each other. Make a day out of running your Christmas errands. You can help them cook their meal for the family potluck. You can also give them a hand with wrapping their presents. There’s no shortage of good deeds on the holidays.
Give your grandparents all the big bear hugs you can
The nicest as well as the sweetest people deserve all hugs. As you spread the love this Christmas, don’t forget about your grandparents. Give them a hug as a thank you, to say hello or goodbye, and for no reason at all. You can also take part in Downy’s campaign by using #Spread100Hugs when you capture these treasured moments.
