I’ve been much more in the Christmas spirit this year. My coworker has been playing a Christmas radio station non-stop at work since Thanksgiving, and somehow I have yet to inflict self-harm. The music actually makes me cheery and sentimental, and though I keep waiting for the moment when it will make me scroogify, it hasn’t happened yet.
we will be flying back to WA for Christmas, and recently there has a been discussion about having a “non-commercial” no-gift (or very minimal gift) Christmas season with my husband’s side of the family. The idea intrigued me when my MIL asked me if I had any ideas of something we could DO together, instead of buying stuff. No one in the family really needs anything, or needs to spend unnecessary money, so how about doing an activity instead?
Well, I consulted Google to gather ideas on some family activities we could do, which I will share with you. [Note: my husband comes from a family of 3 boys, none have kids yet, which makes this more challenging, but I will include other ideas that different families could use, too!]
