Fun Things To Do In December:
Check Out Your Local Christmas Market – The lights, the holiday energy, the hot beverages and cool booths. You can’t really go wrong with a Christmas Market.
Go Out And Look At All The Lights – Whether you take a stroll around the neighbourhood or go to a lovely light display in a park, Christmas lights are bound to lift your spirits and give you a whimsical feel.
Make A Fancy Hot Chocolate – You can make a really pretty and tasty hot chocolate – and there’s a lot of recipes out there you can try! I personally love making one with some marshmallows and a candy cane. Yum!
Bundle Up & Watch Holiday Movies – This is a chill way to spend the holiday season and if you’re an Instagrammer or blogger, you can even take some cute aesthetic pictures of yourself. Now’s the time to curl up with a hot chocolate – or your favourite hot beverage – and nibble on some treats while watching something good.
Send Christmas Cards – You might be seeing your family and friends on Christmas, or maybe you’re away from them during the holidays – either way, it’s a nice gesture to mail people a card to let them know you’re thinking of them.
Decorate Your Home – A no brainer, I know, but some of us aren’t as organized when it comes to getting into the holiday mood. One way to spruce up your place is to give it a clean then decorate it with some festive touches.
Donate Your Time To A Charity – You can purchase or make your own care packages, donate food or clothing, volunteer for a free Christmas Dinner, etc. There’s many ways you can donate your time to help the less fortunate, especially during this time of year.
Bake Christmas Cookies – I’ll be honest and say that I don’t really like baking. For me, it’s time consuming and it feels like there’s so much prep involved. However, I know there’s a lot of people who love to bake, especially during the holidays, so this is a very fun thing to do and there’s a lot of low cost recipes out there. I’m tempted to try a cookie recipe for my toaster oven to see how they turn out!
Take A Walk With A Hot Beverage – Unless it’s -30C or below where you are, taking a brisk walk while holding a warm drink is a lovely way to enjoy the winter season. I live in a west coast temperate climate, so it’s quite mild for Canada and we get more rain than snow, so I can take a lot of forest walks in the rain and it’s really soothing for me. When it does snow, there’s nothing like going for a walk to take in the white wonderland. Might as well enjoy winter while it’s here!
Take Some Wintery Pictures – Photography can be a really relaxing and enriching hobby. Why not take some pretty pictures of the snow (If you live in a colder area) or take pictures of the Christmas lights around you. Get creative and you’ll be sure to have some fun with your camera/phone! I live in an area where it usually snows after Christmas, so it’s funny taking pictures of the palm trees that have lights on them. 😛
