Christmas fun activities

The holidays are such a beautiful time of year, but sometimes we need to get out of our same old routines to add a little spice and fun to the season.

Plus, many of us have never-ending to-do lists this time of year. Often, this big list of tasks takes precedence over being present and playful with those you love. It’s not on purpose, but I know this happens to me!

So, this year, let’s change that! Let’s put living life playfully before anything else. After all, you only live once! Here are five creative ways to have your best holiday season yet!

Play a Crazy Christmas Game

First, get your family and friends together to play a special holiday game! These fun Christmas would you rather questions will make everyone laugh and you’ll find out the truth about what your loved ones really think!

Trust me, you won’t regret a themed game night this time of year!

Shake Up Your Traditions

Perhaps this is the year you have Chinese food for Christmas, you drink eggnog out of silly glasses, or dress up in a Santa suit! Mix up your normal holiday traditions with a few new interesting ones, and it will sure be a Christmas to remember.

What new Christmas tradition can you try this year?

Get Unique & Thoughtful Gifts

Skip the junk and get gifts that kids love and will actually use!

You could also find something that gives special meaning to the recipient or is custom made. Regardless of what you do, take a few extra moments to think about what would make your recipient really smile.

Have a Movie Marathon

This year, instead of holding yourself back, watch those Christmas movies you can’t watch any other time of the year. Enjoy them whenever and wherever…without the guilt that you should be doing something else. It’s time for the Grinch….again!

“Maybe Christmas (he thought) doesn’t come from a store. Maybe Christmas perhaps means a little bit more.” — The Grinch

Make a Holiday Bucket List

Finally, what are the activities you REALLY want to do this year? If you don’t set an intention for them ahead, time tends to get away at the holidays. So, make that bucket list with your family and put it on the fridge. Then, cross the experiences off throughout the season. You’ll love seeing what you’ve done, and you will ensure that you take the proper time to be together doing fun things.

In Conclusion

Have you been doing the same old things for way too long? Now is the time to change!

Add magic back into the Christmas season with these small tweaks. You’ll find that not only are you more connected with friends and family, but you’ll also be more relaxed and happier too. And that’s the perfect way to spend the month of December. Don’t you think friend?
