Many of us had to cancel our holiday traditions last year and replace them with Zoom video chats and phone calls, but that means there is even more reason to celebrate this year! ‘Tis the season, so why not try something new with your family and friends? We have compiled a list of some unique and exciting holiday activities that are guaranteed to get you in the holiday spirit!
1. Have A Holly, Jolly, Holiday Movie Marathon
If you want to relax and still have a good time, then a holiday movie marathon is the way to go! Setting up a movie marathon is super easy, just reach out to your family or friends and make a list of everyone’s favorite holiday movies. Depending on how long you want your marathon to be, you can either watch all of the films on the list or put all of the movie suggestions into a hat and draw out three picks. There aren’t any hard and fast rules for a movie marathon, so have fun with it! Gather your favorite people, munch on some delicious seasonal treats, and prepare for hours of entertainment. To help get you in the movie mood, check out this list of the best classic Christmas and Holiday movies to watch this season.
2. Holiday Cookie and Cocktail Party
Maybe leave the grandkids at home for this one. If you’re looking for a fun way to celebrate the holiday season with your friends, then why not invite them over for a unique holiday treat-themed soiree? Here’s how you get things started:
- Everyone brings a seasonal batch of cookies and creates a cocktail to pair with their cookie of choice.
- Once everyone has finished munching and socializing, you vote for the best holiday cookie and cocktail pairing.
- If you want to throw in a wild card, you can let people mix and match the cookies and the cocktails to see if they can create new combinations.
Struggling to think of good holiday cookie and cocktail pairing ideas? Not to worry, we’ve made a shortlist to give you some inspiration.
Spiked Hot Chocolate and Almond Shortbread Cookies
Mmm. Buttery almond shortbread cookies melt in your mouth and pair great with some hot cocoa and a splash of amaretto.
Double Chocolate Cookies and Mulled Wine
You really can’t go wrong with a chocolate and red wine pairing. The mulled wine’s fresh orange, honey, brandy, and heady spices create an explosion of complex flavors when combined with the rich and decadent semi-sweet chocolate cookies.
Snickerdoodle Cookies and Spiked Apple Cider
If you and your friends like sugar, spice, and everything nice, this might be your pairing. The cinnamony sweet snickerdoodle cookies create a nice balance with the semi-tart and punchy spiked apple cider. You can even add some caramel drizzle around the rim of your drink for an extra bit of sweetness.
3. Make Someone Else’s Holiday Season A Bit Merrier
One of the best ways to bring your family and friends together is by giving back to your community and helping those in need. There are many great ways to give back this season, here are just a few.
Donate Toys to Children in Need
Many families struggle to provide toys for their children this time of year. Get your family to gather up toys and have a little wrapping party! There are tons of places that accept toy donations this time of year. Toys For Tots is just one organization that accepts donations all year round. Check out their website to find a donation location near you. You can also check to see if any local hospitals near you are accepting donations as well.
Provide a Holiday Meal for Someone Less Fortunate
Sadly, not everyone is lucky enough to have access to a warm holiday meal. You can help brighten someone’s holiday season by donating to your local food pantry. You can easily find a food pantry or food bank near you through Feeding America’s website. Click here to learn more.
However you choose to celebrate, we at Life Settlement Advisors want to wish you a happy and healthy holiday season. We’re looking forward to a bright and prosperous New Year!
