December just might be my favorite time of year. Everyone’s jolly, the town’s decked out in cheer and there is so much to do. No matter what you celebrate, there are so many fun activities to get you into the holiday spirit. So if you’re looking for something festive to do, I’ve put together a list of my favorite seasonal happenings.

Go Ice Skating

Just about anyone can skate circles around me, but whether you’re landing triple toe loops or gripping the rink wall, ice skating is a holiday must.

 Volunteer

‘Tis the season for giving back. Nothing warms your heart like helping people in need, especially during the holiday season. My favorite place to volunteer is the local soup kitchen, but there are a lot of opportunities to volunteer in our community.

 Drive Through Lights

Whether you’re visiting a holiday light park or admiring displays in your own neighborhood, driving to see the lights is a fun and free activity for the whole family.

 See A Holiday Show

Getting dressed up and going out to the theater is always fun, but there’s something extra special about seeing a holiday show. My favorites are The Nutcracker and A Christmas Carol.

 Visit A Festival

Outdoor holiday festivals are fun the whole family will enjoy. With live music, a wonderful assortment of holiday treats, fun activities and great shopping, these festivals are one of the highlights of the holiday season.

 Bake Treats

This is my personal favorite holiday activity, and you don’t even have to leave your home. Blast your holiday playlist, break out the eggnog and invite some friends over to help bake some classic holiday treats. This activity is great because the fun doesn’t end when you’re done baking. You can enjoy the fruits of your labor all season long!
