Holiday Zoom Party



Watch in person, on a ZOOM call, or Google Hangout, or try the new group marathon on various platforms like Amazon PRIME. It’s never been easier to watch a marathon of holiday cheer! Start by creating a list of your favorite holiday movies! During the holidays there are so many resources to choose from: the Hallmark channel, Amazon Prime, Netflix, Hulu, Youtube, Apple TV, and Disney +. The list goes on! Use the services you already pay for and stream your favorite holiday classics. 

Pro tip: Have a Harry Potter movie marathon weekend! Caramel corn, hot buttered rum, and a pile of candy, while you spend a day wrapped up in the wizarding world :) 

Sometimes we all need to blow off some steam, cozy up,  pull out the school board games, and breathe new life into them! Just make sure to give them a good ole Lysol wipe down—Another fun holiday option? A holiday puzzle! Holiday Game nights have always been a season favorite to share a relaxing & fun evening with family and friends.

“Oh Tannenbaum, oh Tannenbaum--how lovely are your branches…” Outdoor tree lighting ceremonies, seasonal parades, the North Pole or Santa’s Village, holiday bazaars, and more! Check your local community calendar for listings on which holiday festivities you can participate this year. 

Pro tip: Most activities are free of charge! It’s easy to enjoy time with family and friends to celebrate the holidays. 


The gift that keeps on giving. Volunteering for your community and for the folks that are going through hardships through the holidays is always a great way to give back. One of the best ways to spend your holidays is to give back to the community. From gifting trees to canned food drives, and holiday dinners, to handing out blankets. A little holiday cheer goes a long way for the people around you.  Especially for those who need it most!

Pick a few activities that are festive, fun or free and enjoy yourself this holiday season!
