(StatePoint) – The most festive time of the year is right around the corner. Fill your home with all of the classic scents, sounds and sights of the holidays in the following ways:
Start a Cookie Tradition
Bring the family together by baking cookies. Not only will it fill the home with a scrumptious aroma, it’s a fun activity that can involve everyone. Let kids get creative and decorate their own batch. In the spirt of giving, make some extras to share with friends, neighbors, teachers, coworkers and more.
Carol from the comfort of your home. To experience a sense of community, organize an at-home holiday sing-along. An elegant, compact digital piano such as Casio’s Privia PX-770 is great for this seasonal tradition. Record performances for posterity using its two-track MIDI recorder.
For a festive feel, creatively decorate your home using holiday cards with greetings from loved ones. String cards together and hang them up in the doorway, arrange them on the fridge or display them on the mantle.
Get the Spirit
Frosty pine, sugar cookies and cinnamon – fill your home with classic holiday scents using essential oils and candles. Or keep it natural: boil some cinnamon sticks with orange peel and cloves.
From classic dramas to contemporary comedies, the holiday film genre is eclectic. Set up a home theater and enjoy your favorite films with some hot chocolate under a cozy blanket. To get an upgraded movie theater-like experience at home, check out the projectors from Casio’s LampFree line-up, which offer brilliant images. At your next family gathering, consider projecting movies silently while playing seasonal music for an extra boost of cheer.
