15 Dates That Will Put You In The Christmas Spirit
Start writing a post

I know everyone's holiday spirit may be a little bit lower than in previous years because of the current circumstances. A global pandemic has definitely been able to affect a lot of things in our lives this year, but I think the one thing it can't take from us is our Christmas Spirit. Spending time with a significant other or loved one is one thing all of us can do that doesn't usually go against CDC guidelines. So with two weeks left till Christmas, here is a list of dates that will raise the Christmas spirit even during a global pandemic.

Hot Chocolate Christmas Movie Marathon 

Pick a few of your favorite christmas movies, get in your favorite pjs, make some hot cocoa, and get comfortable!

Personally, my favorite thing to do during the holiday season is drive around different neighborhoods and see all of the different Christmas lights.

Build a Home, Gingerbread Style

I think the best way to test if you work well with someone is by building a gingerbread house together.

An activity that can be done in a night, or over the span of a few weeks! Make a list of all the places that sell hot cocoa around you and get hunting! Go to each one and see who has the best hot cocoa!

Outdoor Ice Skating 

Outdoor ice skating just screams Christmas to me. It gives me that main character of a Hallmark movie kind of feeling. Bundle up in your favorite warm outfit, hold on to each other tight, and enjoy a night on the ice!

Christmas Karaoke Competition

The best way to get into the holiday spirit is listening to Christmas music. This just takes it up a notch. Whether you have a real microphone lying around or you just wanna use a television remote, it is a free and easy way to celebrate the holidays.

A fun way to celebrate your Christmas season with your partner is to make stockings together! To make it more interesting, try making each other's stocking rather than your own! Test how well they know your taste!

Whether you find it, make it, or buy it, go find each other the ugliest Christmas sweater you can find. Whoever found the ugliest one wins!
