Hot chocolate by the fire: This is one of my favorite things to do. I love siting around and catching up with my family and friends. I prefer coffee over hot chocolate, however, during the holidays hot chocolate is an essential. I like to add marshmallows, whip cream, and candy canes to my drink. While we’re gather by the fire we are either watching a Christmas movie or listening to Christmas songs. Other things to do while having hot chocolate can be to incorporate a game, take pictures, and even have an excuse to stay in your pajamas all day. I will be completing this bucket list essential quite a lot 🙂
Ice Skating: I am so so excited for this activity. My birthday is in December so its only right that I incorporate the holidays with my special day. I have decided that I want to go ice skating on my birthday with my family & boyfriend. This should be a fun activity, because my boyfriend does not know how to ice skate, and my sister usually falls. I can not wait for all the laughs and memories ice skating will bring.
Go look at Christmas Lights: Since I was younger my family has always drove around looking at Christmas lights. This is something I do every year so I hope this year I will continue and be able to check it off my bucket list. In addition to riding around looking at the lights on different houses, I also want to go to a tree lighting ceremony. I find so much joy looking at different lights and decorations. This activity is fun to do with others! Maybe grab a sweet treat or cup of coffee from Starbucks and drive around.
Decorate Gingerbread House: I am a little embarrassed to say this but, I have never decorated a gingerbread house before. I know this sounds so crazy. There really is no reason that I haven’t, I guess I just simply never done it before. I’m so glad this is on my list, and hopefully by the end of the year I will be able to say I decorated a gingerbread house. I will most likely do this activity with my boyfriend or sister. We will order some dinner, have either Christmas music or a movie in the background. This is a fun activity to do with others while also being in the holiday spirit.
Volunteer Somewhere: Giving back is something dear to my heart. The feeling of being able to help somewhere is one of the best feelings. During the holidays there is always an overflow of help that can be provided. I’m not sure exactly where I would like to go volunteer and help at, but I know anywhere I go, my help will be very appreciated. I hope to gather some friends and family members to go with me.
Christmas Movie Marathon: Just the other day I made plans to do this! I am so glad I am already working towards completing my bucket list! On Christmas Eve, my family and I have decided to each choose our favorite holiday movie and take turns watching what everyone chose. This will give me an excuse to stay in my pajamas all day! It will also be fun because while we are watching the movies, we will be able to cook a great meal and even make our favorite holiday sweet treats!
