Holidays Tips - Plan Fun Activities for Family
by Nicole Mendari
It's so easy to get caught up in the preparations for the
holidays. Shopping, baking, cooking, wrapping, cleaning,
and chauffeuring the kids everywhere they need to go. As
you make your list of things to do, be sure to include some
fun activities that include your friends, family members,
co-workers and neighbors. After all, fellowship and
companionship is a big part of the holiday season, so make
sure you spend some quality fun time with those who mean the
most to you.
Christmas Caroling is a fun way to include not only those
that you already know, but a great way to break the ice and
meet new neighbors and people. Print up a few words, enter a
portable stereo with the music of Christmas, and tour your
neighborhood singing Christmas carols. No matter if you are
not the best singer. People of all ages can enjoy this
tradition carried into the modern holiday season. If you do
not feel comfortable caroling in neighborhoods or houses you
do not know, consider having a mobile caroling bus that goes
to the homes of people you know to carol. Take a bucket of
candy canes or Christmas to go to the home you are leaving.
You might also consider caroling on behalf of a charitable
organization favorite. Building a secure donation bucket or
a box that clearly shows the name and address of the
organization that can help you. Some people may not be
comfortable financially to you personally, and it is normal.
Hand them some preprinted slips of paper with the
organization's name, address and phone number along with a
short statement on what they do, and encourage them to
Curling is another great activity to do with friends and
family. Not only promote get a little exercise, but it's a
great way to spend time outside enjoying the winter
crispness of the air if you live in a suitable climate.
Otherwise, most cities have local skating rinks. Check your
calendar in advance and send invitations to several members
of the family or friends and make an afternoon of it.
Consider encouraging your friends and relatives to join in a
tour of volunteers to help a local nursing home or shelter
home this holiday season. You can sing carols with the
residents of the nursing home, or help dish out hot soup
bowls and pass out blankets for those in need. If you know a
family in need this holiday season, perhaps their friends
and relatives could put together a holiday gift basket and
fill a laundry basket of food, baked goods, and treats and
small gifts for Christmas children of the family. It is a
good way to teach children the importance of reward their
community and help those who are less fortunate then
Remember the reason for the season, and spend time with
their friends and family, and maybe even help others in the
process. Have a great party!
