Decorate the Christmas Tree
Head down to the Christmas tree farm with your whole family and pick out an evergreen fir tree to set it up in your home or your backyard and decorate it with your family using lights and ornaments. You can use candy canes, jingle bells, or even make DIY ornaments with your family.
Go Ice Skating Outdoors
Christmas season being the winter season, ice skating with your family or friends could be the best thing. There are many ice-skating rinks decorated with lots of lights all around the winter season. This could be a way to stir up your holidays with something exciting.
Bake Some Cookies
A great indoor activity you could do is bake some cookies. It gives off this nostalgic feeling, back when you used to go to your grandma’s house and the whole house smelled of cookies. You could involve your mother or grandmother in the process too to have some quality time with them.
Go See the Lights
One of the most amazing things in this beautiful Christmas season is how colorful the whole neighborhood becomes; everyone decorates their house with lights. The main buildings in the city turn out to be so beautiful. You could go see the lights with your friends and family because it surely is a sight you must see once in your lifetime.
Have Secret Santa Gift Exchange
Lots of families take part in the Secret Santa gift exchange. Just put everybody’s name in a jar and have everyone pick out one. Everyone gets a random person to buy a gift for and both of them aren’t supposed to know. This could spice up your gathering and make it more exciting and fun. You can even do this in your workplace, a little bit of fun once in a while doesn’t hurt.
