Christmas is here! After the crazy year 2020 has been, it has been hard for many to get in the holiday spirit, so we have put together some fun ideas to do this year on Christmas Day and Christmas Eve, or maybe even make a tradition in your household for years to come, we just know you will love them. These are great if you have children, or not.

Give Pajamas- It’s always fun to open one present on Christmas Eve, and getting a new warm, cozy set of PJ’s to wake up to on Christmas is one of the best feelings! 

Movies- Whether you have your regular movies you watch on Christmas or Christmas Eve, or switch it up every year, this is such a fun way to just relax and get in the spirit, especially if you got new PJ’s to be comfy and cozy in.

Check out Lights- Drive around your favorite neighborhood, or just cruise around town and find new ones with some fun Christmas light setups. Eagle Crest towards Redmond puts on a great drive-thru light show that the whole family will love.

Open one Gift- This is always a fun one, even though Christmas morning will be here soon, it’s always fun to open just one gift on Christmas Eve.

Bake Cookies- If you haven’t already made hundreds of cookies yet this season, make and decorate cookies with the family. You can leave your favorites out for Santa, leave some on the porch of friends or neighbors, and of course, eat the rest.

Make a non-traditional Meal- This is a fun one, especially if it’s just a few of you at home, but order take-out from a Chinese restaurant, or pick one of everyone’s favorite, and have a yummy, non-traditional holiday meal everyone in the house will enjoy. The Jones’ are making Chicken Cordon Bleu this year, yum!

Church Service- With many things different this year, there are many churches that do live services you can watch online, from your home, if they are not doing in-person Christmas Eve service. If this is not something you normally do, give it a try and if you and the kids like it, make it a yearly tradition.

Game Night- Pull out your favorite board and card games, and have a fun game night filled with snacks, Christmas music, and laughs.

If you do any of these, snap some photos and tag us!
Happy Holidays,
