Ah, the holidays. A time where we spend time with our loved ones, take part in traditions, and enjoy winter activities.

If you're like me, you probably want to enjoy these holiday and winter activities starting the moment December comes. Unfortunately, December also means the end of college is near.

Even though I know you would be doing these activities during the semester, now that you're done your finals and the semester is over, it's time to enjoy the holiday without the guilt of your schoolwork.

So, here are 10 holiday activities you can enjoy by yourself or with the ones you love.

1. Go ice skating.

Exercise is a good stress reducer, and after taking so many stressful finals, you'll need to destress. So, why not at least have some fun with it?

2. Bake cookies.

3. Go shopping.

I mean, you were probably already shopping instead of doing homework, but at least now that the semester is over, you don't have to rush home to do that paper you forgot about.

4. Go out to see Christmas lights.

5. Go to any & all holiday parties.

Be honest. You've already gone to at least one party instead of studying for finals, even if it was just for a little bit. That's okay, but now that winter break is here, it's time to go to all the holiday parties you want. Guilt-free, too!

6. Decorate your house.

7. Spend time with your loved ones.

8. Binge-watch all of the Christmas movies.

You've already mastered the art of binge-watching during the semester. At least now you can be festive about it and not worry about finals.

9. Build a gingerbread house.

10. Spend hours wrapping presents.

Let's get real. You're only spending hours on wrapping because you're looking for your scissors, picking the best playlist to listen to, getting wine drunk, or all of the above. You know what? You do you because at least now you're able to spend that time wrapping presents because it is officially winter break!

8 Spotify Playlists To Get You In The Autumn Mood

The temperature may not be very Autumn-like, but these playlists sure are.

Autumn Playlists

Autumn is my favorite time of the year. The leaves change, pumpkin spice everything hits the shelves (thank you, world!), the 13 Nights of Halloween on Freeform (formerly abcfamily) and the temperature drops. Well, the temperature is supposed to drop. Being in south Alabama, however, means that the temperature may be relatively low early in the mornings, but you're still going to suffer in the afternoon. So if the weather outside isn't getting you in the Autumn mood, maybe these Spotify playlists will help you slip into that wonderful, Autumn state of mind.

I have never understood why grown-ups complain when the leaves are all off the trees, and the temperatures take a decided turn towards the zero on the thermometer. I hear complaints about the impending winter weather, and the driving in the snow and ice. We live in Pennsylvania, so I bite my tongue instead of stating the obvious: Maybe you should move to a warmer climate?

Halloween is a fun holiday for everyone of all ages. There are so many fun things to do in the month of October before Halloween and the day of Halloween. I love Halloween especially with all the candy and different types of goodies. Halloween is for everyone that enjoys to be a part of this wonderful holiday and also be careful on Halloween as well. It gives everyone a chance to show what they love to do as well.
