It may be the most wonderful time of the year, but it can get expensive too! Even with all the deals and coupons stores throw at you, it’s hard not to spend a lot of money. Here are a few less expensive activities that will make your holidays just as fun and memorable.
Enjoy All the Lights
People are passionate about their decorations. Grab a thermos full of hot cocoa and take a walk or drive, and see all of the lights your friends and neighbors have put up. Big figures, music, entire yards filled with cheer, it can be quite the sight to see. Some communities even have annual contests for best display!
Host a Movie Night
There are plenty of holiday movies to choose from. Have your family and friends over for a marathon, or you can enjoy a different movie each night. Ask everyone to pick their favorite holiday films, make some snacks, and settle in for a night everyone will enjoy!
Reminisce on the Good Times
If you want to start a meaningful tradition that doesn’t cost anything, create a gratitude jar. Each day, write down one thing from the past year that made you happy or anything you are thankful for and put it in the jar. If you have children, let them participate too! On New Year’s Eve, read everything and end the year remembering all of the good things that have taken place in 2022.
Create a Holiday Video
Some family members like to send yearly updates around the holidays. Newsletters are common, and family portraits are popular as well. If you want to do something a little different, why not try a video? Record a fun holiday message and send it out to your friends and family. You can make it memorable and it won’t cost anything! Post it on Facebook or Youtube and share it with your loved ones!
