Send a "Blue Christmas" Package: Who Will You Surprise With This Colorful Holiday Idea?

“I'll have a Blue Christmas without you, I'll be so blue just thinking about you. Decorations of red on a green Christmas tree, won't be the same dear, if you're not here with me." 

I think Elvis’ song rings true for many families who have loved ones who are far from home. Is there a member of your tribe that can’t join you during the holidays? Don’t bah humbug about it, instead brighten up their holiday by sending them a Blue Christmas package. Who doesn’t love mail this time of year? Here’s how: 

  • Scour the grocery store for snacks and treats wrapped in blue packaging. Different shades of blue just add to the decor. 
  • Friends or family serving abroad? Get the kids involved in this blue scavenger hunt for your favorite military personnel.
  • Don’t forget about the individuals who can’t leave their post on Christmas – law enforcement, hospital and EMT personnel, nursing home staff. Surprise them with a blue basket filled with all their favorites. 
  • Not a foodie? Try blue candles, scarves, mittens, ties, fleece blankets, slippers. 
  • Include a photo of your family wearing long faces, holding tissues or ugly crying . 
  • Attach the lyrics to "Blue Christmas" to add to the holiday drama.

Merry (Blue) Christmas!
