Fun Ways to Celebrate the Holidays!

Celebrate the season with the following festivities! You can tailor each event to your budget – everyone can get in the spirit with one or all of the activities. So grab a candy cane, put on a Christmas sweater and get ready to have a jolly-good time!

Decorate – Take the time to decorate your apartment or house! Having ribbons, sparkle and a tree around will definitely get you feeling festive. You could even decorate your work space or play Christmas tunes during your work day.

Make Something – Whether you bake sugar cookies, decorate a gingerbread house or get crafty and make a tree ornament – it’s entertaining to make something from scratch! So get those creative juices flowing and pick a fun or yummy holiday project.

Movie Night – Rent all of your favorite holiday movies and invite friends over to watch a few classics. We recommend: Home Alone, Elf, The Family Stone, Christmas Vacation, Love Actually and The Nightmare Before Christmas.

Donate Your Time – There are a ton of charities and organizations that would love to have you volunteer for a few hours. Everyone is so busy this time of year, that your time will be greatly appreciated – pick up your favorite cause and call to set up your volunteer time.

Enjoy the Great Outdoors – Hit up the best sled hill, go ice skating or take a stroll downtown. Find something to do outside to get out of the house and get some fresh air – all while having fun and enjoying the winter season.

Ugly Christmas Sweater – Throw an Ugly Christmas Sweater Party! Gather your friends and family, set a spending limit and see who can find the craziest/ugliest sweater for the party.

Caroling – Break out your pitch pipe and hit up the neighborhood to go caroling… Fa la la la la la la la la!

Christmas Lights – Pile into the car and get on the road to see all the pretty lights around town – of course, while bumping some classic Britney Spears, NSYNC or Destiny’s Child holiday music.
