Most people tend to stay indoors in the colder weather. We feel cold and just want to bundle up and stay warm indoors. Here are some WONDERFUL ways to enjoy the Holiday Season that have nothing to do with buying gifts.
For one night, why not make like the 19th century and rely on candles rather than electricity
Sit down, take a deep breath, and then slowly exhale. Stop doing and just be for a second. Now keep breathing in and out, and focus on the air coming through your nose, causing your chest to rise and your belly to swell. Let it out slowly.
When it’s blustery and going outside involves umpteen layers and boots that make you feel dowdy, isn’t it nice to just stay in and order a pizza? This is a great opportunity to watch all your Holiday favorites on TV
Have some hot chocolate. Mix up batches of a few different hot chocolate recipes or mixes, and have a wee teacup of each. Swirl the chocolate in your cup like wine and compare the notes and aromas of dark chocolate versus milk chocolate. Just sip ‘em and decide which takes the prize for most delicious and you’ve found your signature drink of the season. Then make a bigger cup with the winner and wiggle yourself into a cushy chair with a fat book.
Once you’ve stayed in with a movie night, and a hot chocolate tasting, you may find yourself fortified to actually brave the cold. Wear your puffiest jacket, your silliest hat, and your ugliest, most practical boots and take a walk
It's a great day for hot chocolate and a good book here. Of course I'll have my youngest grandchild here too and he always brightens my day. So it will be a Wonderful Wednesday at my house. I hope yours is a WONDERFUL one too.
