To get in the holiday feeling, you can add holiday colors to your outfits every day.  Certain color combinations just fit right in to holiday get-togethers of all sorts.

Of course, we all know about red and green.  But rather than true red with true green, try opening yourself up to any shade of red and any shade of green.  Your reds can range from pinks to deep burgundy and from mint to forest green.  Include blue greens, wine, marsala, coral red, etc.  For instance, you might try army green with burgundy:
