ScroogeFilter: I am having a seriously hard time getting in the Christmas Spirit. Jolly

I don't want to hate Christmas but I think I do. But I don't want to! After a pretty rough year where I was anticipating moving closer to family, I find myself and my little family (husband, age 5 girl, age 3 boy and age 5 months boy) spending the holidays in a new (to us) house with absolutely no extended family.
Oh, and we're in Arizona which causes a lot of problems, including being 2500 miles from our families. I mention Arizona because going outside to sledride and make snow angels is not going to work to help me get in the Spirit.
So, I turn to you all. How can I get in the Christmas Spirit? Do you have certain traditions that you could share as this is our first Christmas together alone and we've not yet implemented any traditions?
