This year will certainly be a different Christmas for all. Many of us will have to be at home or choose to be at home. Many of us will have to choose ‘who’ we spend Christmas with due to logistics, regulations or simply because we don’t want to mix households.
Even though we may be at home more this festive season it doesn’t mean the Christmas cheer has disappeared. Even more reason to up the festive spirit and we have a few ideas for you:
1. Decorate lots – this year most people have started early on the Christmas decorations and most trees have been adorned with fairy lights, baubles and tinsel. Remember to decorate more this year so you really feel in the festive mood. There are a lot of DIY ideas online or many stores selling everything sparkly. Immerse your home into a winter wonderland as you will be at home more this season.
2. Home baking – Now we all learnt a lot more about baking during the lockdown but now you can put your cooking skills to the test with fun food. Reindeer cookies, snowball cocktails or fab nibbles and treats for all the family to enjoy.
3. Games – games are not only fun they really get everyone involved (as long as no arguments!). It is good to get some competition going, mind thinking and also helps to pass a good amount of time. Maybe have a nice prize for the winner on hand . If you prefer to enjoy a game on your own puzzles are great, not only are they satisfying once the picture starts to take shape and you aim for completion of that last puzzle piece.
