The holiday season is a time for family, food, peace, and kindness, right?
Yup, and unicorns fart rainbows…
But seriously, if you're finding yourself dreading the holidays, you're not alone!
Between buying gifts, attending holiday events, and sitting through family gatherings with relatives you wouldn't otherwise hang out with, the holidays can quickly become a source stress.
Luckily, we've crafted 10 really fun, easy-to-remember ideas on how you can not only survive this year's holiday season—but actually enjoy yourself while doing so—all while using Tarot!
HOLIDAY IDEA #1: WHAT TAROT CARD ARE YOU?
Aunty Norma driving you nuts with all those questions about when you'll have kids and why haven't you found a real job yet? Play “What Tarot card are you?”
While thinking about your favourite relative, come up with the Tarot card she's most like right now. (Devil, perhaps?!)
HOLIDAY IDEA #2: PLAY TAR-ADES
Bored of charades? Play Tar-ades with your friends instead!
Stick a Tarot card on each of your foreheads and have fun guessing which one you are. You can describe what's on the card or what the card represents.
(Best played with people who actually know a little something-something about Tarot!)
HOLIDAY IDEA #3: SET YOUR INTENTIONS
Does going to a family event feel like going into a war zone? Set your intention and go with a positive attitude instead.
Think about what you want to create during this family gathering and choose a Tarot card that represents this. (Temperance might be a good one?)
HOLIDAY IDEA #4: TAKE A TAROT TIME-OUT
Is your family totally getting on your nerves? Take a Tarot time-out!
Sneak away for a moment and pull a Tarot card to help you refocus and be more ‘present' before returning to the dinner table.
HOLIDAY IDEA #5: GIFT INSPIRATION
Stuck on a gift idea? Consult the Tarot cards for some inspiration.
Either, gift someone Tarot cards (that's a no-brainer, right?). Or use the Tarot to inspire you on what gift to buy. For example, the Eight of Cups might be a weekend escape? Or the Nine of Pentacles might be gardening gear?
HOLIDAY IDEA #6: DRAW A DAILY TAROT CARD
Feeling extra stressed out? Try the Daily Tarot Card activity to give yourself a moment of peace and calm each morning while you learn Tarot at the same time!
HOLIDAY IDEA #7: GUESS THE TAROT CARD
Have a long drive to your grandma's house? Entertain yourself and your Tarot friends by playing a few rounds of “Guess the Tarot Card”. Give hints about which Tarot you have in mind and see who can guess it first!
HOLIDAY IDEA #8: TAROT KITCHEN
Stuck on what to cook for the holidays? Draw a Tarot card for inspiration!
The Empress might be a lavish feast. The Three of Swords might be your favourite meat skewers. Or the Ace of Cups, a liquid dessert or cocktail.
HOLIDAY IDEA #9: SLEEP, BABY, SLEEP
Can't sleep from anticipation (or stress) the day before a major holiday? Try counting Tarot instead of sheep (Ace of Wands, Two of Wands, Three of Wands….) — you'll fall asleep in no time!
HOLIDAY IDEA #10: TAROT EXCHANGE
Stuck in the return's line to exchange that gawdy-looking woolen jumper from Grandma? (Thanks Grandma, we still love you!)
Make the most of your wait by figuring out which Tarot card would actually want to keep the items you're bringing back!
So there you have it… 10 ideas you can try out when you're dealing with stress of finding the right gifts, so over your family gathering, or bored out of your mind with all of the holiday events.
To help you remember all of these ideas, we've created a special holiday gift just for you! A printable sheet that you can hide in your purse or pocket to pull out when you are in the thick of it all, to remind you of the things you can try to survive the holidays!
And remember, the holidays don't need to be completely stressful! In fact, this is the perfect time to start planning for the New Year and getting excited about the new opportunities that are coming your way.
