Free Fun This Holiday
Christmas is fast approaching and Chanukah just started. Many of us are settling into a little vacation time with friends and family. Sometimes, this is the only time of year you see some of these people and you probably have a long list of engagements for lunch and drinks – but who wants to spend money going out when you just went on a holiday shopping spree?
Here are some great ideas for spreading Holiday cheer without making a dent in your wallet.
Together in the kitchen: Have an old friend over to bake cookies! You both turn a chore into a wonderful afternoon of catching up – and you will have something to bring to the party!
Take a walk: Instead of meeting up for lunch, meet up for a walk! Fresh air and exercise will surely be a wonderful break from the hustle and bustle of the season. PLUS you won’t feel so guilty munching on all the treats at the office.
Movie night: Dust off those old holiday movies and put on the kettle – hot cocoa and ‘It’s a Wonderful Life’, anyone? After a hard day of shopping, have a few friends over for a movie. Everyone can relax and enjoy each other’s company. No frills and no fuss.
Story time: This is the perfect time to read that really long picture book to your kids. After dinner sit down and read a little every night. It will give them something to look forward to and give mom and dad some quality time with the little ones. *Story time doesn’t just have to be for the kids! Swap out the book for a photo album and share some memories.*
However you are spending your holiday, it doesn’t require spending your savings. Just stick to some of these ideas and quality time won’t cost you a dime.
