With the holidays just around the corner, you might already be making plans to celebrate the festivities with friends and family! If you haven’t yet given a thought as to what you want to do, the following tips are listed to jump-start some of your ideas to ensure you have a wonderful holiday break.
Don’t want to go out? There are plenty of fun activities to do indoors.
White Elephant. An alternative to Secret Santa, White Elephant consists of players “stealing” gifts from others. Because each gift can only be stolen three times, the game results in fun, playful rivalries between players for sought-after items.
Cozy movie night. With hanging Christmas lights and mugs of tasty hot chocolate, a movie night is the perfect definition of cozy. Pick a fun Christmas movie to watch and huddle around the fireplace if you really want to get comfortable!
Whether you stay in San Jose or go on vacation, there are lots of outdoor activities to do as well.
Christmas in the Park. This classic and fun event is a get-together for all friends and family. Visit the lights that downtown San Jose has to offer, and be sure to taste a sip of the wonderful hot chocolate!
Celebrate the New Year. Visit San Francisco on New Year’s Eve for its wonderful firework celebration atop Twin Peaks, where you’ll be able to see all the fireworks from one of the highest locations in the city. It’s a great chance to spend quality time with friends and family!
Most importantly, make sure to sleep in—a lot! We all deserve it.
