11 Christmas Activities You're Never Too Old For

You'll never be too old for these Christmas-time things!

11 Christmas Activities You're Never Too Old For

As you get older, you'll find yourself growing out of things... but these 11 Christmas-time activities are ones you'll never be too old for!

1. Baking Christmas cookies

One thing that will never get old is baking Christmas cookies. As you get older, though, they go from sugar cookies with frosting to Santa Clause shaped masterpieces.

2. Wearing matching pajamas with your family

Although this may be embarrassing, you have to admit that it's fun to put on those snowflake-covered 'jammies.

3. Hand-making ornaments

When you're a kid, making an ornament is coloring a gingerbread man, poking a whole in him, and stringing through a piece of yarn. When you get older, however, making ornaments becomes an art. You can paint it, sew it, bedazzle it or make it smell all fancy.

4. Going to the Christmas parade

The Christmas parade is NOT just for kids. It's the best thing to bring out holiday spirit! From marching bands to baton twirlers to Santa riding a firetruck, the Christmas parade is a great experience for anyone!

5. Singing old Christmas songs

Whether you can sing or not, belting Christmas classics is another thing you'll never grow out of. They'll get you ready for the holidays, no doubt about it.

6. Making a gingerbread house

Making a gingerbread house is another one of those things that becomes an art. When you're a kid, sticking graham crackers together and pasting on some gumdrops is the extent of it. When you grow up a little bit, you'll bake gingerbread from scratch and construct the entire North Pole metropolitan area.

7. Watching cheesy Christmas movies

You are NEVER too old to sit on the couch in your pajamas and watch six hours of Christmas movies. Never.

8. Wearing Christmas-themed clothes

When I say Christmas-themed clothes, I mean the red, light-up, ho-ho-ho sweaters. Face it, these are fun to shop for and even more fun to wear in public. They show your Christmas spirit like nothing else!

9. Waking up at the crack of dawn on Christmas morning

I love to sleep, and I know you do too... but there's something special about waking up super early on Christmas morning that we'll never get too old for. It makes Christmas day so much more exciting!

10. Dumping an insane amount of mini marshmallows in your hot chocolate

Putting so many mini marshmallows in your mug that you can't even see the hot chocolate is the way to go, no matter how old you are.

11. Playing in the snow

Lastly, you'll never be too old to go outside and play in the snow. The snowmen will get bigger, the hills you find to sled down will get higher, and the igloos you build will get huger. It'll be freezing just like it was when you were a kid, but the fun is always there.

Don't forget, you're never too old to show some Christmas spirit!

1. Why is Wilson Hall so complicated to navigate? Even as a senior, I still get lost in Wilson. As a freshman, I was warned about the unnecessary complexity of the building, was laughed at by upperclassman for my confused looks on the first day of school and walked and rewalked the whole hall before finding my classroom. #annoying.
