Let's be honest---the holidays are AWESOME. To jump start the Christmas spirit (if you don't have it already...I've been listening to Christmas music since the second week in November), have your family do an advent calendar! I looooove advent calendars and plan on sending one to the people in my family every year but don't remember that I'm going to do it until December 1st when it's time to start them! So, here's the site to print out one that you cut out and read the Christmas scripture to go along! The picture of this particular calendar is the picture at the top of this post. Something else, there are 25 articles in the Ensign this month (they could do that every month, but I've never counted them before), so you might want to do that too! I'd probably start from the back and go forward so Christmas day you read President Eyring's talk on Christmas day.
Also, if you don't have any Christmas music, there are a ton of Christmas radio stations you can listen to online, or you could go to pandora.com and put the kind of music you want to listen to. I typed in White Christmas Bing Crosby and it's playing Bing Crosby, Perry Como, Dean Martin, Andy Williams, and lots of others! Nothing beats the classic Christmas songs!
Merry Christmas and Happy December!
