A Handy List of 20 Amazing Things To Do This Christmas
Make your own Christmas Centrepiece
The centrepiece is one of the attractive decors that one can have in their home. During Christmas color-coordinated Christmas craft can be added to your table a week before Christmas day—you’ll have to change the flowers every day. Begin by placing a small pillar vessel inside a larger jar, and fill the gaps between the two with red and white marbles (Christmas theme). After that fill it with flowers available.
Decorate the Christmas tree with family
Making a huge Christmas tree with the help of family members will be the best thing to enjoy with your family. Everyone will share their personal touch to make the best Christmas tree. Kids can make some crafts to decor.
Make Christmas cards
Creating Christmas cards with your kids on Christmas Eve so that they can hand out to friends and family at your festivities the next day. These homemade cards would make the perfect finishing touch on your gifts.
Go to church for special programs
Make your Christmas eve the special. Most of the churches offer special programs on Christmas Eve like live performances, nativity pageants, and more, making it the perfect place to spend the evening. You can also enjoy this evening with your friends.
Hosting a game night
Playing games is the most interactive session that one can have with their friends or family. Stay in and have a family game night with all of your favourite board games like Snowman Bingo, White Elephant, Jingle Bell Toss, etc or you can try your hand on a new game that no one has played yet.
Getting around with friends on a Christmas night will be fun. Get in your car and set out to see the best and brightest lights in your neighbourhood. Set favourite Christmas songs playing for a memorable night out.
Watch a festive film
Set the movie ON at Christmas Eve sitting on a couch with friends and family. There are lots of Christmas movies like The Santa Clause, Elf, Home Alone, etc which can be your fun-filled Christmas Eve. Cherish those moments with their loved ones.
Arrange Santa visit
Santa, the most favourite of all, will rejoice your place with gifts and entertainment. Invite your neighbours over for an evening of Christmas. Arrange games, appetisers, carolling, and a visit from Santa. You can convince one of the family members to dress up as Santa and we’re sure your kids will love this all night long. You will have a good time to spend with friends and family.
Volunteering On Christmas
Gather your group of friends and arrange a visit to a homeless shelter, or charity organisation to serve those in need. You can find local groups that need help this holiday season to volunteer for their program. This can be the best memory spending quality time with the homeless to light up their moments.
Baking different cookies
Get the secret recipe out to bake some cookies for your favourite ones. You can ask your friends or family members to bring their homemade cookies so that you can share with each other.
Letter to Santa
Santa definitely appreciates all of the cookies you will give it to him, but he’ll love a personalised letter even more. You make your kid’s day more fun this Christmas eve. Encourage your kids to leave thank-you notes for Santa and they’re sure to be on Santa’s list next year.
Surprise your neighbours with cookies
Maybe your neighbours are thinking about what to do this Christmas night. Surprise them with your most favourite cookies and get them along with you to enjoy this Christmas. You can customise cookies with different shapes and sizes to make the most out of the day.
This Christmas, play Secret Santa with your family or friends. Exchange personalised gifts in disguise followed by other games and then by dinner. After that, you can reveal who was the secret Santa for whom.
A small donation for homeless
Create a family donation drive for the homeless in your area. Or you can also spread the message with friends and neighbours for a donation. Donate something—whether it’s money to a favourite charity, or toys, coats, and food, it’s what the Christmas season of giving is all about.
Get Christmas clothes
A family get-together with the Christmas theme is the best idea to create more bonding between your loved ones. Dress up in red and white clothes so that you can be called a ‘Santa Gang’. One of the members can be Santa Claus.
Organise a party at the restaurant
If you have a big group of friends then it’s better to celebrate in the restaurant rather than at home. You can book the entire place if you want and customise it according to you. Make an arrangement of drinks, food, chocolates, desserts, etc. This can be quite fun and entertainment creating lots of memories.
Build a snowman
If you’re lucky enough to get some snow in your area over the festive period, make sure you go out and make a snowman together. Make sure you take a carrot for a nose and an extra scarf to build your snowman at the next level. You can have a competition on who makes the best.
Host a Christmas Karaoke
Christmas songs are the best. Filled with lots of energy so that everyone has to sing and dance on the floor. Get everyone together and sing along to some festive tunes.
Decorate the house
To all the family members at your home, buckle up, time to decor your house to feel like a party. Get a Christmas tree, gifts, centrepiece, cookies, etc to make your evening a blast. Invite everyone at your home to have a look at your decoration and also to spend quality time with them.
Christmas Scavenger hunt
If your friends and family are going to come to your house, arrange gifts for them. But to give an early present to them on Christmas Eve, make them work for it. Name it as Christmas Scavenger hunt.
These top 20 things will make the occasions memorable. Not to forget, spend quality time rather than just partying. Bonding is essential and it is the day to create some amazing memories. Here’s wishing you all a Merry Christmas.
