The holidays are for resting, enjoyment and spreading joy. It can be a little challenging for many people who live triangular lives to identify what to do with all the available time. The Christmas holidays are most enjoyed when spent with people who matter the most to you, whether it be your family, friends or lover.
We know how hard it can be to identify holiday activities for the typical couch potato, and that’s why we’ve put together a list of activities you should do with your housemates and friends this holiday.
Doing karaoke with your housemates or friends is always an effective bonding activity, and it’s a lot of fun too. There’s no time of the day karaoke can’t be done, and with the time of the year, we suggest you sing all your favourite Christmas songs to put you in the perfect Christmas mood.
2. Organise house parties
Turn the music up and invite all your favourite people to your house. Set party rules and go on to have the time of your life. When’s a better time to have all the people you love partying together if not Christmas time?
3. Host a dinner party
Nothing brings friends and family together like good food and great conversations. Host a dinner party in your home and call all the people you love to come together to wine and dine the night away.
4. Redecorate your home together
Get into the holiday spirit by redecorating your home with your housemates. Exchange ideas of where items should be, move things around, laugh, dance and play while at it.
5. Shop for home essentials
If you don’t live alone, we’d suggest you shop for home essentials with your housemates. You can go window-shopping first to decide what you need in your home and find things you’d love to have in your house.
6. Attend events
There’s always a lineup of events to be attended during the holidays, and all of them are better attended with friends. Take your couch potato housemate off that couch by getting them to attend holiday events with you in your city. You can also travel out of where you live to attend festivals and explore other cultures.
7. Host a games night
Young people love their games night. The infectious laughter, the generic games and the predictability of what their competitors will do. Bring your friends and their friends together for a while organised games night. The more laid out the rules are, the more enjoyable the games night.
8. Do a Christmas photoshoot
Ugly sweater photoshoots aren’t restricted to families or lovers alone. Get your housemates together in your matching pyjamas and take Christmas photos. These little acts make long-lasting memories.
9. Make meals and share in your community
The holidays are a time to spread love and cheer to everyone around you, especially those who can’t afford to do it themselves. Whatever little you have will go a long way for someone who has nothing. Touch the heart of someone in your community by feeding them this Christmas.
10. Binge on cheesy Christmas movies
Is it really Christmas time if you haven’t binged on Christmas romcoms that give you unrealistic expectations of romance? Get all your movie-time snacks ready and binge on as many romcoms as possible. It’s the Christmasy thing to do.
As you have fun this holiday season, please remember to stay safe.
