The holiday season in the US is unlike any other. After Thanksgiving, people in the country get ready for the winter holidays. They spend the season doing everything from watching Christmas movies and decorating their homes. If you want to start some holiday traditions, here are some fun activities to try this year.

Make a Gingerbread House

Although it doesn’t get much recognition outside of the holiday season, the humble ingredient known as gingerbread is a significant part of the holiday tradition of building houses. You can make your version of this food by purchasing a kit from the grocery store or making it from scratch. You’ll be able to cover your house in icing, gumdrops, and other decorations.

Wear Ugly Christmas Sweaters

One of the best parts of the holiday season is dressing up for parties. It’s fun to wear your best, but it can also be a bit more fun to show off your ugly Christmas clothes, including a silly saying or outdated embroidery. If you’re looking for a hideous knit, head to a thrift store or find one with a festive message online.

Decorate a Tree

Creating a perfect tree is a fun and traditional activity that can be done with either a real or fake tree. The tree can come in various shapes and sizes and can be adorned with lights, ornaments, and other holiday decorations. Before decorating your tree, get together with your family and friends to enjoy some holiday music.

Appreciate Holiday Lights

The holiday season in the US is a time of great joy and excitement as people decorate their homes and turn them into winter wonderlands. It’s incredible to see all the different holiday displays that are displayed throughout the country. One of the most common traditions people follow is visiting their neighborhood to see all the beautiful decorations.

Watch Christmas Movies

If the weather outside is frightful, it’s best to curl up with a blanket and a cup of hot cocoa and watch some of your favorite Christmas movies, such as “It’s A Wonderful Life,” “Elf,” or “Home Alone.” There are so many great movies that you can enjoy watching this holiday season. Some television networks also have nightly programs that feature different movies about Christmas.
