All can still be merry and bright this holiday season! Even though it might look a little bit different this year, there are a lot of activities to get into the Christmas spirit. Below are a few holiday activities I've done over the years, but I'm thinking 2020 calls for pulling out all the stops!
Santa Claus Visit
Recruit a funcle (fun uncle) or spirited grandparent who wouldn’t mind strapping a pillow to their belly and wear a Santa hat for a visit to the house. Santa suits are wildly popular this year since the traditional mall Santas aren’t in business, so be sure to shop early (here are some fun ones). You never know, it could be a tradition that continues through the years!
Driving Light Tour
A lot of zoos are offering more light viewing options. If there aren't local zoo lights, put on your favorite Christmas music and simply drive around the neighborhood to admire all of your neighbor’s hard work.
Picking the Perfect Tree
Support a local nursery and pick out a real tree this year. Since you’ll most likely be home more, it might be nice to enjoy the fresh pine smell! And of course, decorating it can be a lot of fun for the whole family - I'm adding this fun garland to our tree this year.
Get creative with your cookies by investing in fun cookie cutter shapes. It could be a long winter indoors so might as well start perfecting your cookie recipe now.
Movie Night In & Hot Cocoa
Put on your favorite holiday movie you can't go without and cozy up by the fire. Add in a hot chocolate with as many marshmallows as possible - you deserve it! We have a fun Hot Cocoa blog post coming soon - stay tuned!
Gingerbread House Competition
Nothing says the holidays like a friendly competition with the family. Zoom in your friends for the ultimate showdown. Each person must create their own spin on a gingerbread house within one hour and everyone submits their vote. Winner eats all :)
