‘Tis the Season to be… Inside?

by Biridiana Lua

The wind is blowing, the fire is burning, and it’s a winter wonderland outside. As fun as it sounds to build a snowman with Olaf and Elsa, sometimes it’s just too darn cold! I have compiled a list of the next 7 best things to do when it is snowing.

Jack Frost & Chill?

My favorite pass time will always be sipping hot chocolate, under warm blankets, next to good friends, binge-watching movies on Netflix! The selection is wide from a 1954 classic of White Christmas to a Christmas special of Bob’s Burgers.

The Best Way to Spread Christmas Cheer is Singing Loud For All to Hear

Sometimes, we all get a little more productive with some jams on! Why do you think stores and dental offices play music over the speakers? This year, blast the best Christmas tunes, and have some fun while tidying up the house for that Christmas party.

I’m Dreaming of a DIY Christmas

Time to load up that Christmas board on Pinterest and indulge in your artsy side. Instead of spending the big bucks this year, scrape up some cute things around the house and shove it in a mason jar. Shoved things in a mason jar always look super cute!

All I Want For Christmas is For You to Pass the Ham

“I got beans, greens, potatoes, tomatoes, lamb, rams, hogs, dogs”, U name it! I am sure the most recent challenge that goes by #UNameIt will put you in the mood to cook away! Spend some time in the  kitchen cooking up some of your favorite meals and desserts. After all, what’s better than a house full of food, family, and fun?

He Sees You When You’re Sleeping

Ok, but honestly take a nap. Treat yourself with a couple extra hours of shut-eye. It is proven that sleep improves health and mood. These two factors are crucial around the season because we all need to spread Christmas cheer! There shall be no Grinches or Scrooges around the Christmas tree this year!

It’s the Season of Giving

If you are all about donating and charity, take some time to sort through your closet and pantry. Grab a couple of boxes and just fill them with lightly worn items you no longer use. There will always be somebody in dire need for basic essentials during the Holidays. Sort through your canned foods, toss out the expired ones and box up the goodies which you might have never found a use for. What might be taking up space in your closet may be fulfilling somebody else’s.

It’s the Most Wonderful Time of the Year

… which also means it’s the best season to spend quality time with family and friends. Dust off the Monopoly board, pull out the family albums, or watch those ancient family movies on the VCR from when Grandma was laughing and her dentures fell out.

Whatever you do this season, just have fun. Spend time with your loved ones and don’t forget to tell them how thankful you are to be able to spend the holidays with them.
