Christmas Activities Countdown: 9 Feel-good Things To Do
Christmas 2020 is going to be everything but traditional. All those well-adorned, bauble laced streets with fairy lights and carols echoing in the background are sure a treat to the senses. Still, this year we are doing things differently.
It’s time to spice up things to do this Christmas. With limited outings and fewer options, here are fun yet kind, simple yet innovative ways for a merry Christmas.
1. Arrange for a Drive-in Cinema
Instead of just watching Christmas-themed movies on your laptop, arrange for a drive-in movie night with your neighbours. Handpick tasteful films like It’s a Wonderful Life, Elf, Home Alone, Miracle on 34th Street. If you cannot decide, go with the Christmas special of Dr Who. That’s epic!
2. Wear a Jumper for a Cause
Confused about what actually is a Christmas jumper day 2020? Well, it allows you to dress up for a fundraiser. All you folks in the UK have a splendid opportunity to participate in a campaign to save the children by donating £1 or £2 on Friday 11th December. If you've missed out on it this year, be ready next year.
Apart from this, there are different charities to take part in. Search for donation drives and charities and giveaway needful essentials.
3. Be the Real Secret Santa
Spread some happiness around and become a secret Santa for the needy. Prepare some really heartfelt gifts (that are not too heavy on the pocket), set up a hot chocolate station, a cookie swap or something similarly sincere. The idea is to bring a smile to people. If you haven’t been doing that already, make it into a new Christmas activity and repeat it every year with fresher modifications.
4. Round up Out-of-the-box Christmas Gifts and Decor
Count your blessings this year by staying indoors and cherish valuable family and friends. Bring a smile on their faces by being a little creative with your Christmas gifts. Allow us to spoon feed you with these unique gifts ideas.

5. Bake Some Home-made Goodness
As you sit surrounded by family and friends with that titillating Christmas vibe, forget about them calories and bake some love.
Huddle up with your kids in the kitchen and go on a bake-a thon. Split up in teams or put in joint efforts to bake cookies, cupcakes and gingerbread house. Not to forget, this traditional festive gesture is to spread happiness and what better way than drinking hot cocoa, or eggnog in cosy PJs near the fireplace. Oh, but wait! You can always surprise others with a batch of yummy Christmas treats.
6. Recycle and Save the Environment
As you gather in the tree room to make some DIY Christmas gifts cards with your family, take a moment to think if you can reduce, reuse and recycle. Don’t sweat it; it is super easy. Here are all the crafty and smart ways you can recycle Christmas cards:
- Make gift name tags.
- Cut out decor like gift chains, bunting, and hanging card tree decorations.
- Use images to create your own DIY Christmas card or collage.
- You can either take this creative route or go the responsible way and ask local authorities if they have provisions for recycling wrapping paper, plastic bags, etc.
7. Huddle-up for a Family PJ Party
Don't be disheartened if you cannot be with as many people as you want for Christmas 2020, but that cliched huddle-up is still possible. But with a twist! Pull out those tacky, ghastly Christmas sweaters to go with your most festive set of Pjs and arrange for a storytime every night until Christmas. As the city outside turns into a winter wonderland, build your own cosy-corner under your creatively decorated Christmas tree. Sing carols, turn up favourite holiday tunes, watch movies, play games, orchestrate a book read and let your home ooze festive excitement.
8. That Lip-smacking Vegan Christmas Spread
'Vegan diet' is just about the most popular kid around town. With newer ways to cook plant-based produce, it's time to add a fun twist to the traditional roast dinner. Thanks to chefs for experimenting with so many ingredients, your vegan Christmas meal will surely cast an impression on your dinner party.
