If you are lucky enough to get some time off this holiday season (or have family coming into town for a few days) here are some festive ideas you can do with everyone.
Go to a Christmas tree farm, and grab lunch afterwards!
Sing Christmas carols (go around to neighbors you think would enjoy it).
Create an ugly sweater or Christmas stocking with items from the craft store.
Volunteer your time; homeless shelters are a great place to start.
Drop off food, clothes, and toys to local charities.
Donate winter belongings to places like the Salvation Army and Goodwill.
Bake treats for EVERYONE~ coworkers, friends, housekeeper, trainer, your doctor, babysitter, church staff, teachers, etc. *Make sugar cookies, a gingerbread house, pumpkin pie, chocolate pie, peppermint treats with crushed candy canes, hot chocolate, apple cider, and of course, Egg Nog!
Drive around popular neighborhoods with wonderful Christmas lights.
Have a big family dinner together.
Rent a movie.
Play board games.
Go ice skating at an outdoor rink.
Hope you’ll stay a while.
