| 20 Fun Things To Do In December | Blogmas 2016

When you're not busy running around and getting stuff done for the holidays, it can sometimes feel like there's not much to do in December. The days are shorter and it's getting colder out and inspiration for activities is disappearing. However, there's actually tons of stuff to do in December! Here's a list of 20 fun things to do in December, so that the next time you're not sure what to do, you'll have some ideas!

1. Decorate

If you haven't already, decorate your house/apartment/room. Put up a tree or hang up some decorations and make your home feel festive for the holidays!

2. Check Out The Lights

You can go to a lighting ceremony or if your town has a spot that people go all out with decorations go check it out! If neither of those things are going on around you, you can always hop in the car or take a stroll down the street and check out the lights and decorations your neighbors put up!

3. Go Shopping

If you haven't gotten everyone on your list their gifts, do some last minute shopping.

4. Movie Night

Gather up your family or some friends and have a holiday movie night, or cozy up alone with a big blanket and a cup of hot chocolate and watch all of your favorites!

5. Make A Gingerbread House

This is a great activity to do if you have kids, but adults can have fun doing it to! You can get fancy and make all your own stuff for it or just buy a kit, just be sure to take plenty of pictures of your beautiful creation!

6. Throw A Party

Or you can attend one too. December is a great party month, everyone's celebrating this time of year! Throw a themed party or just invite a few friends over for festive drinks, whatever suits you.

7. Go To A Show

If there's a theater near you, go check out a play. Churches put on holiday plays during December too!

8. Read Some Books

Whether you have kids and want to read a few holiday books to them or you want to read one for yourself, just imagine how cozy it would be to snuggle up and read a good holiday book.

9. Secret Santa

Have a little Secret Santa gathering with friends and family or coworkers. Everyone buys a gift and exchanges it for another, how fun!

10. Bake

December is the best time to bake in my opinion. Make some cute, decorated cookies or bake a few pies! Get creative and have fun with it!

11. Play In The Snow

This really only applies if you live where it snows, but if you do, go out and enjoy it. Get suited up and roll around in the snow, you can even build a snowman!

12. Make A Holiday Playlist

Create a playlist of all your favorite holiday songs, or you can check out my Holiday Playlist and jam out!

13. Cook A Hearty Meal

What better time to make your own homemade soup then when it's cold and dark out? You'll feel so cozy and full after!

14. Cozy Spa Night

Whether you gather up friends and have a spa night or just make yourself a bubble bath, make sure you just relax and enjoy the quiet moment in this pretty busy month!

15. Visit Santa!

Head over to the mall and go see Santa! This is a great activity to do with kids. 

16. Make Holiday Cards

One of the easiest DIY activities out there, instead of buying cards to give out for the holidays, why don't you make your own? Get creative and have loads of fun doing it!

17. Learn About Another Holiday

Spend time with friends who celebrate a different holiday from the one you do and learn a little about it. You can even incorporate some of the traditions from the holidays you learn about into your own celebration!

18. Go Caroling

Not sure if this is still a big thing or not, but you can go Christmas caroling if you want! See if you can head to a hospital or elderly home and sing a few songs for the residents, I'm sure they'd love it!

19. Visit Friends and Family

If you're not planning on giving them a visit on the holiday, then maybe visit them before! Many people come home for the holidays, maybe you have a few friends who go away to school and come back into town in December, plan something fun with them or just spend the day together!

20. Volunteer or Donate

Spend some time this month giving back to those in need. Whether you donate some goods or donate your time to volunteering, take a little time out of your day to make somebody else's month a little better!
