Get Your Jingle on for the Holidays

November 21, 2019

November:
Most importantly: give thanks
Make time for friends and family
Be thankful that school is winding down
Deck the halls with boughs of holly (after you have celebrated Thanksgiving of course)
Grab some hot cocoa and watch the Macy’s Thanksgiving Day Parade
Watch /play Thanksgiving day football
Start up a Christmas countdown
Go black Friday shopping (continue saving with those great deals on Cyber Monday)
See Frozen 2 to get into the winter spirit (in theaters Nov. 22)
Eat plenty of Thanksgiving leftovers
Prepare the Christmas playlist

December:
Volunteer to ring the bell for Salvation Army or spare some change
Donate to Toys for Tots (distributes toys to children whose parents cannot afford them, run by the U.S. Marine Corps Reserve)
Start that playlist made in November (the Jonas Brothers: “Like It’s Christmas”)
Celebrate Christmas with your college friends before we leave for winter break (the last day of the semester is Dec. 12)
Go Christmas caroling (because the best way to spread Christmas cheer is singing loud for all to hear)
Drive around to look at Christmas lights
Keep the Christmas spirit alive
Watch a Hallmark movie (They’re basically all the same, but there’s something about that Christmas feeling they give you)
Wear Christmas pajamas and exchange presents Christmas morning
Decorate your tree (it might by cringy looking at your home-made ornaments from first grade, I feel your pain)
Wear an ugly Christmas sweater (Maybe even enter a contest or make your own)
Bake all your favorite Christmas cookies
Make a gingerbread house (get rid of that possible Halloween candy)
Build a snowman (and sing along to the Frozen soundtrack while you do)
Wrap Christmas presents for your friends and family
Cozy up with a roaring fire, fuzzy socks and a movie
Watch all the Christmas movies (my favorite is Charlie Brown Christmas)
Ring in the new year
Get some candy cane ice cream (it is never too cold for ice cream)

January:
Grab some friends and go ice skating
Rock your first day of the new semester (Spring semester starts January 13)
Make those New Year’s resolutions (and try to stick to them, but let’s be honest…)
(Please) don’t leave the Christmas decorations up for too long
Go snow tubing or skiing, Snow Trails is right up the road!
Have pajama days and hope for a snow day
Make some snow angels
