As you packed away your Christmas decorations and welcomed in 2012, perhaps you felt a little bit sad about another wonderful holiday season that has now officially come and gone.  There is a lot of hubbub and joyful chaos that occurs during the holidays.  Once it’s over, things may seem a little bit too quiet.  January can seem cold and endless to some-but this is the perfect opportunity to start anew and regroup a bit and look ahead to many of the fun things that are just around the corner.  Perk yourself right up and get into a fun character--there are many opportunities right around the corner in the next few weeks to do just that!

Great Movies:  During the holiday season there are many blockbuster movies in the theatres and if you haven’t had time to see a good movie, now is the perfect time to do so!  Mission Impossible: Ghost Protocol is a great choice if action/adventure is your thing.  Check out Ethan Hunt on his latest quest as he tries to stop nuclear Armageddon!  Even if you aren’t typically a detective movie type, Sherlock Holmes: A Game of Shadows is a popular choice that has Robert Downey Jr. bringing the character of Sherlock Holmes to life as he has never been portrayed before!  Don’t miss it!  For another great movie with lots of family fun potential, Alvin and the Chipmunks have an unexpectedly big adventure in Alvin and the Chipmunks: Chipwrecked.  Watch the shenanigans of Alvin and his buddies when their cruise ship sinks and they have to survive on a Polynesian Island!  No matter where your cinematic adventures take you, going to the movies is a simple but effective way to get out of a post holiday slump.

Football Season:  For some instant sporty exhilaration, get ready for some football!  Get together with your friends for to watch your favorite team in action or if you can, hit the stadium in person for some cold weather, exciting live action!  Whether you are just a fan that wants to show your ultimate loyalty to your favorite team or a football widow that wants to get some of the attention back on herself--we have lots of fun and exciting costumes and accessories that will get you into the spirit of the NFL playoffs and the upcoming Super Bowl too!  Root for your favorite team in head to toe character! 

More Holidays!  The upcoming weeks are fortunately loaded with exciting holidays that are fun as well as patriotic and educational.  These holidays and events can be made even more enjoyable as well as memorable for you and your kids with appropriate costumes to wear to mark the event.  Martin Luther King’s birthday, Valentine’s Day, President’s Day and Mardi Gras are literally right around the corner.  It’s not too soon to start planning the parties and events that surround these very special days.  Make sure your celebrations are made even more unique and fun by getting into character with some appropriate costumes and of course, all the costume accessories to go along with them!

2012 is here.  Even if you have a bad case of the wintertime blues, kick them off by looking forward to the fun and excitement that is in the coming weeks and make the most of what lies ahead.  See a good movie, watch a great football game or make some fun plans for an upcoming romantic holiday or long weekend.  Even the long days of winter can hold lots of fun and excitement; be sure to make the most of yours!
