Spending the holiday with friends is fun. Friends can make the festive seasons seem more fun, especially if you are away from your family. All you need to do is find something that tickles your fancy. If you are looking for ideas on spending this festive season making memories, here are some pointers on what you can do.
What better way to spend Christmas than sitting around the kitchen drinking wine and baking cookies for Santa? There are so many simple sugar cookie recipes online, and the best part is that decorating the cookies is fun. Try your hand at baking new cookie recipes and laugh at the baking fails you make. It makes for a great evening activity, especially if you want to stay indoors.
Christmas is a great excuse to go shopping with friends. There are so many great things on offer, and you might find something that you never thought you would need. Don’t just go to the mall and buy stuff and come back. Walk around and discover new places you never thought existed. Who knows, you might end up getting a tongue piercing that will look great on you. Christmas is the time for new possibilities, so be open to new things as well.
Watch the Christmas classics
Nothing speaks of Christmas better than cozying up with a hot cup of cocoa and watching old Christmas moves. The movies will remind you of when you were young and open presents under the Christmas tree. Make it more fun and have a movie trivia with your friends afterward and try to remember as much of the movie as possible. It will turn the whole idea of Christmas movie night into film and game night.
Play in the snow
If you live in an area that gets snow, this is a great time to get your sleighs out. Find a hill with enough snow and try it out. You can also make snow angels in your backyard or build a snowman. Since the snow will not be around all year, it is a great time for you and our friends to enjoy it while it lasts.
Decorate your tree
Nothing speaks of Christmas better than a Christmas tree. Do not wait until the last minute to put up your tree since it can go up after thanksgiving. Get your friends to help decorate the tree with you. You can add a new twist to the tree by putting up decorations you made with your friends. It makes the entire ensemble feel personal, and the best part about it is, you will not be doing it on your own. Having your friends there will make it more fun.
Spending the holidays with your friends is fun and full of adventure. You can go backpacking together and save money on your travels while still experiencing new things. Take a step back from everyday life and spend this time with the people you love. The memories will have you looking forward to the next holiday all year long.
