Christmas is fast approaching.
And that means a few things. For one, the weather is getting cooler. It seems as if the temperature is dropping rapidly on a daily basis! Christmas decorations are slowly being put up. Lights are being strung and lit. Stores are loading their shelves with holiday-themed merchandise. Family and friends are preparing for celebrations.
Not feeling festive? Is it one of those days that you don’t know what to do? Are you looking for some fun activity to do to spend your break? I’ll be sharing with you guys 7 awesome things you can do to make this year’s holiday season the best yet.
One of the best parts of the Holiday Season are the drinks. Go to a local cafe with a friend and buy your favorite seasonal drink, whether it be peppermint hot chocolate or a gingerbread steamer. Not only do you get to enjoy your drink, but enjoy your friend’s company!
“It’s the most, wonderful time, of the year!” Turn on the radio for some good old classics or jump onto Spotify to find some new hits. But don’t just sit there and listen. Do something productive! Clean your room, do laundry, wash dishes. Or, have some fun with your friends having a dance
Spend some time with family and friends outside! Do some outdoor activity such as sledding on your local hill, skating at the new outdoor rink, or skiing at that hill you’ve always wanted to try. Try something new! Look around. See if your city is hosting any Christmas events or light shows. Get a group of people together and go have fun!
There’s that saying “Christmas isn’t just about getting presents.” Although its cliche, it’s true. Go to your local store and buy some Christmas themed items as well as necessities, depending on who you’re gifting this to. With the products you bought, put together a homemade gift basket for someone. Add a personal note.
Make Christmas-themed baked good with friends and share with family or friends.
There are thousands of holiday-themed recipes out there. Christmas tree brownies. Rice Krispie snowmen. Snowflake sugar cookies. The options are, indeed, endless!
Christmas isn’t just about gifts. It’s about sharing and spending time with others around you. Around this time of year, even though it may seem happy and joyful to you, many people are struggling. Some are without family. Others without a home. This Christmas Season, show Christ’s love by using your talents to share with people who are in need of cheering up!
