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."

A Tribute To The Lonely Hispanic

In honor of Hispanic Heritage Month, I’d like to share a few thoughts about being Hispanic in a country where it’s hard to be Hispanic.

Veronika Maldonado

Just a little background information; my dad was born in Mexico, came to the U.S. as a newborn and became a citizen when he was 25 years old. My mom was born and raised in the U.S. as were my grandparents and great grandparents, but my great-great grandparents did migrate here from Mexico. I am proud to classify myself as Hispanic but there are times when I feel like I’m living a double life and I don’t fit into either one.

An Atlanta Weekend

A New Yorker's quick weekend in Atlanta.

On a weekend visit to Atlanta, I had to adjust to people being personable and congenial to me. Although I had lived in the South before, I had to get reacquainted with southern hospitality due to visiting from Brooklyn. Atlanta Uber drivers are very down to earth, offer snacks, and provide great genuine conversations. The opposite is the lay of the land from Brooklyn Uber drivers. The southern hospitality is provided not only from the Uber drivers, but restaurant servers, cashiers, or random people giving suggestions. Brooklyn is a dope and unique place to live, but short on the warmth more often than not.

20 Traditional Hispanic Recipes To Feast On In Honor Of Hispanic Heritage Month

Like many of my wanderlust-ridden friends and family, I'll travel anywhere for the promise of good food. I once went to Thailand in pursuit of traditional massaman curry and Spain for authentic patatas bravas — neither of which let me down.

What usually ends up being the biggest letdown is coming home to miss the traditional, local cuisine. It may not have quite the same ambiance, but trying to cook authentic dishes at home can increase appreciation for the craft and culture behind them.
