Christmastime brings families together in many ways. Kids get off from school; offices close their doors, and holiday celebrations get everyone involved under the same roof. After all, one of the many wonderful things about Christmas is spending time with those you love. Here are four fun Christmas activities to strengthen your family bond this holiday season.
Christmas Talent Show
Talent shows involve everyone in the family. They provide opportunities for people to get up on stage, cheer each other on in the stands, and take the big seat as a judge. No matter the talent on display—signing, dancing, or poetry reciting—talent shows provide entertainment and memories. Plus, adding a festive twist to the at-home production spreads the Christmas cheer and amps up the fun of performing with festive costumes and more.
Cozy Christmas Movie Marathon
The list of Christmas movies available continues to grow each year. Cozy classics like It’s a Wonderful Life, Mickey’s Once Upon A Christmas, and The Grinch guarantee lots of heartwarming moments to enjoy. Various Hallmark holiday specials dish cheesy Christmas spirit, and seeing your favorite TV show characters enjoy their own Christmas celebrations reminds you of what the holidays offer. A family Christmas movie marathon is a fun, laid-back holiday extravaganza. It brings the whole crew together to enjoy various stories and adventures.
Allowing everyone to vote on the movies or select a movie to include on the marathon list is a great way to get everyone involved and feel like part of the moment.
Family Holiday Fashion Show
Hosting a family holiday fashion show encourages everyone to sport their best and favorite festive clothes and share them with those they love—with a bit of fun in the mix. Create a red carpet; let everyone design their look, and get everyone in the family strutting their stuff down Rudolph’s runway. To really get into the holiday spirit, buy some matching family Christmas shirts.
For added entertainment, challenge one another at a “who wore it best” competition. Rocking a Christmas look spreads cheer to others, helps you embrace the festivities, and provides a lot of entertainment.
Christmas Tree Shopping
Doing any activity as a group forms a familial bond. Although sometimes personalities clash, creating memories together builds a unique connection. It gives you all something to cherish together. Whether you opt for a real or plastic tree this year, making the decision on the final tree as a family brings everyone close, transforming the Christmas to-do into a special occasion.
Enjoy your holiday season by creating memories with these fun Christmas activities that strengthen your family bond. Sharing any occasion with your loved ones brings people together and makes the celebrations even more special. From classic festivities like movie marathons and Christmas tree shopping to new traditions like family runway and talent shows, there are many ways to make your holidays more special with your family.
