Top Activities for a Joyful Christmas Break

As the holiday season approaches, many find themselves anticipating the much-needed Christmas break. Whether you’re spending time with loved ones or enjoying some well-deserved relaxation, here are some delightful activities to make the most of your festive time.

First, you can dive into the enchanting world of holiday films and have a festive movie marathon. From classics such as “It’s a Wonderful Life” to modern favorites like Elf, a movie marathon is a perfect way to unwind and get into the holiday spirit. College student, Olivia Wilson, expressed her love for holiday movies, saying, “My favorite movie is definitely Home Alone. I always love inviting my friends and family over and watching these together during the Christmas break.”

You can also bring some friends or family members over for a baking day filled with delicious treats. From gingerbread cookies to peppermint brownies, the kitchen becomes a festive haven for creating and indulging in holiday goodies. 

If you’re lucky enough to experience a snowy Christmas, embrace the winter snow with activities such as ice skating, sledding, or building a snowman. It’s a great way to stay active and enjoy the seasonal beauty.

Make sure to also explore your local light displays in the neighborhood. Many communities go all out during the holiday season, turning streets into magical spectacles, so take a stroll or drive through these beautiful displays with loved ones. 

Unleash your creativity by making your own festive decorations. Whether it’s crafting ornaments, wreaths, or handmade cards, the personal touch adds an extra layer of warmth to your holiday. 

Christmas break is a great time for self-reflection. So, take a moment to look back on the year, express gratitude, and set goals for the upcoming one. It’s a meaningful way to wrap up the year and enter the new one with a positive mindset.

Lastly, you can escape into the pages of a good book. Find a cozy spot, grab a warm drink, and immerse yourself in a captivating story. It is a simple yet fulfilling way to unwind during the break. SNU student, Whitney Bowie, explained her love for a good read. “Reading is one of my favorite things to do over the break. I find it so relaxing and peaceful. Atomic Habits is one that I highly recommend … it is very insightful.”

Embrace the festive season by incorporating these activities into your Christmas break plans. Whether you prefer to chill out or seek new adventures, there’s something for everyone to enjoy during this wonderful time of the year.
