(StatePoint) It’s the most fes­tive time of the year. Be sure to fill your home with the clas­sic scents, sounds and sights of the hol­i­day sea­son in the fol­low­ing ways.

1. Start a Hol­i­day 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.

2. Sing car­ols. Carol from the com­fort of home. To ex­pe­ri­ence a sense of com­mu­nity, or­ga­nize an at-home hol­i­day sing-along. Record your per­for­mances for pos­ter­ity us­ing its two-track MIDI recorder.

3. Dis­play greet­ings. For a fes­tive feel, string cards to­gether and hang them in the door­way, dec­o­rate the fridge or dis­play them on the man­tle.

4. Get into the spirit. Frosty pine, sugar cookies, cin­na­mon and more. Fill your home with the spirit of the hol­i­days us­ing es­sen­tial oils and can­dles of clas­sic hol­i­day scents. Or, keep it nat­u­ral and boil cin­na­mon sticks with or­ange and cloves.

5. En­joy your fa­vorite flicks. From clas­sic dra­mas to con­tem­po­rary come­dies, the hol­i­day 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 eli­able, bril­liant im­ages.
