Travel Tips

With many families quarantining in hopes of a normal Christmas with their loved ones, they might not be going out for normal holiday traditions.

 

This year, take matters into your own hands and get in the holiday spirit from the comfort of your home. Whether with your family, roommates, partner or friends, these activities are perfect to celebrate the holidays from the comfort of your home.

 

Christmas Movie Night

There are plenty of Christmas movies out there — new and old — perfect for getting the family in the holiday spirit. Check out all the classics playing on cable throughout December on channels like Freeform, FX and more. Other places to find Christmas movies are the Hallmark Channel and streaming services like Netflix, Disney+ and Hulu.

 

Bake Christmas Cookies

There is nothing better than being stuck in the house with some holiday sweets. Bake your favorite Christmas treats, or try some new ones, and enjoy during your Christmas movie night.

 

Christmas Song Karaoke

As Buddy the Elf once said, “The best way to spread Christmas cheer is singing loud for all to hear.” Turn on your favorite Christmas songs and sing your heart out. This is guaranteed to get your family in the Christmas spirit.

 

Make Decorations

Spread Christmas cheer by putting a personal touch on your Christmas decorations. Whether they are drawings, paper snowflakes, homemade tree ornaments or paper wreaths, crafts are bound to get you excited for the holidays.

 

Drive around to see Christmas Lights

This year it seems like more and more houses are going above and beyond with their decorations. Put on your favorite Christmas pajamas, grab hot cocoa and spend the night driving around surrounding neighborhoods looking for the best decorated houses. Try the Christmasprism app to find the best ones near you.
