As the song says, “There’s no place like home for the holidays.” This year we may be celebrating at home more than past years but that doesn’t mean our holiday spirit isn’t there. We have compiled a list of fun activities to help you get into the spirit while celebrating in the comfort of your own home.
To get into the holiday spirit, craft up your very own DIY ornaments. They are super fun to make and your family will treasure them for years. They’re not just beautiful, they’re also meaningful keepsakes. The simple materials you will need are clear ornaments, polyacrylic, and your choice of glitter. Get ready to craft away!

Hop on a video call with Santa
Getting to meet Santa is a magical experience for many during the holiday season. Even though we may not get to visit Santa in person this year, Santa’s Club will personalize your virtual visit. Pour your hot cocoa, jump on the call and watch the magic come to life.
A great way to spread holiday cheer is by giving to others. Jingle your neighbor by leaving a note that says “you’ve been jingled” anonymously. With your note, include candies and chocolates, baked goodies, DIY gifts, small toys, Christmas decorations, candles and other festive items. The whole neighborhood will get into the spirit as people pass along their own “you’ve been jingled” basket.
