50 Christmas Activities

There’s honestly so much to do during Christmas time, but its that time of year that you get to hang out with your family and friends and just make memories! Christmas is the only thing that makes winter worth living. I love Christmas. Reasons why christmas rocks: the music, the tree, the decoration, the lights, and obviously the good food and parties. Not to mention the amazing movies. You know the ones I’m talking about, the movie where the main character is going home for the holiday and expected to bring the significant other that they either don’t have, have been lying about having, or that just broke up with them, so they hire someone to be their boyfriend/girlfriend/fiance and end up falling in love with them? THOSE ARE THE BEST MOVIES! (So watch one and think of me) But this holiday season, you have no excuse to be bored with my list of Christmas activities! So bundle up, get some hot cocoa going, and enjoy doing all these festive activities!
