This holiday season will definitely look different with COVID-19 still in the air as well as no vaccine ready to be sent out to the public yet. However, it is still important to keep the romance alive.

1. Baking Christmas Cookies

I love sweet treats, and baking Christmas cookies at home together will spread Christmas cheer.

2. Watch Hallmark Movies Together

The Hallmark channel is known for its cheesy holiday movies and will be a great resource when it's cold outside, including a great time to cuddle and eat popcorn and hot chocolate.

3. Make TikToks

Making TikToks together is a great way to stay indoors and stay trendy and maybe even become viral and "TikTok famous."

4. Make Gingerbread Houses

Another creative, cheap and yummy idea that will keep you all laughing and having fun for hours.

5. Make Snowmen and Snow Angels

If you are lucky enough to be in an area where it snows, you can go outside on your lawn and build snowmen and snow angels together! Snow is one of the best and most wonderful parts of winter anyway.

6. Make your own Ugly Christmas Sweaters

You and your significant other can have an ugly Christmas Sweater contest that you all can make yourselves. The ideas and possibilities are endless.

7. Christmas Carol karaoke

Buy a karaoke machine and sing your heart out together with some of the most famous Christmas Carols such as "Baby It's Cold Outside."

8. Christmas Cocktails

For those 21 and over, couples can make their own Christmas cocktail recipes at home and have their own tasting to see which ones they love the best.

9. Take Cute Holiday Photos

Perfect to still do at home: get dressed up and post on social media.

10. Make a holiday inspired meal together

Show off your holiday cooking skills and make some peppermint bark for dessert and a holiday ham or maybe some figgy pudding.

11. Read Christmas Stories Together

Some classics are "Twas The Night Before Christmas" and "A Christmas Carol."

The NBA playoffs remind me of my basketball journey through time

Syracuse Basketball

I remember that when I was very little, my dad played in an adult basketball league, and I remember cheering him on with everything in me.

In America, we tend to stick up our noses at certain things that aren't the norm. For example, people who are overweight, or the politically correct term “obese." Men and women who are overweight get so much backlash because they are not skinny or "in shape," especially, African-American women, who are typically known for having wider hips and thicker thighs.
