7 Fun Ways To Spend Your Time When You’re Home For The Holidays

Among the hustle and bustle of midterms and making travel plans for Thanksgiving and Christmas, making plans for what to do once you finally get home can slip your mind! So here's a few fun and COVID-safe ideas for things to do when you're home for the holidays!

Ice skating

Indoors or outdoors, it's always a fun winter tradition to go skating around Christmas time!

Pumpkin picking

Halloween may be over, but you can still pick out a good pumpkin to turn into a pie for Thanksgiving! Or find some fun decorative pumpkin to keep your place festive for the rest of fall!

Baking

Whether it's baking Christmas cookies, challah, or pumpkin pie, baking is a great way to spend time inside where it's nice and toasty warm!

Decorating for Christmas

Setting up lights, garlands and decorating a Christmas tree is such a fun way to spend time with your family and loved ones over the end of Thanksgiving and the start of Christmas break!

Look at Christmas lights

Where I grew up, there were always a couple of square blocks where the houses went full-out every year decorating for Christmas, and one of my favorite holiday pastimes is walking around the blocks to enjoy the lights, decorations, and displays.

Build a snowman

If you live somewhere it snows, then building a snowman is a hallmark of the holiday season!

Christmas movie marathon

From "How the Grinch Stole Christmas," to "It's the Great Pumpkin, Charlie Brown," to "The Nightmare Before Christmas," there are tons of fantastic classic holiday movies to watch when you're home! So set aside a day to kick back, relax, and watch all of your favorite holiday classics while sipping on some hot cocoa!

One of my favorite things to do when it comes to music is making different playlists on Spotify. I find it so fun to go back to old songs, find new ones, and categorize them into my different playlists. We all have that one playlist that we resort to when we are really feeling some type of way — also known as a "feels" playlist. If you have one of these playlists or feel ~inspired~ to make one, here are 11 songs that are a must to add.

The Boyfriends Of The 2000s

Thank you, J14, for the Posters

Every girl remembers her first crush. Even if your first crush was the boy in your kindergarten class that ate crayons, your first true love will always be the one that holds the key to your heart. Growing up in the 2000s, everyone knew who your dream guy was. Your family probably still give you grief and your best friends probably still reminisce, so it is impossible to forget your first celebrity crush. You bought a Tiger Beat magazine every chance you could just to read up about what your favorite celebrity was doing. Your room was fully decorated with posters of them, and it wasn't unusual to have fights with your best friends over who was going to marry him. If you were a 90's baby, lucky you because the 2000s were full of boys that were easy to love. I hope you enjoy a walk down memory lane and quickly realize that Bieber was definitely not the first guy with that hair cut. Here are 15 90's baby's first boyfriends.

The Boyfriend Recipe

The ingredients to build a relationship are a little more complicated than just a bouquet of flowers and a box of candy.

12028

Relationships. Long distance or not, significant others are much more than just that. I would be lying if I said I did not love the sweet gestures that only a boyfriend can give. The flowers, funny phone calls, hand holding, breakfast dates, and tight hugs are special but my relationship and many others out there exist on much more than just these little gestures. It is a tricky concoction that consists of one part boyfriend and two parts best friend and would not work without one part or the other. While having a relationship may not be quite as easy as baking a batch of cookies, it has its own recipe (with a few variations for flavor) to follow for a good match.
