While many of the Christmas festivities occur inside the house, the real magic of the holiday season happens outdoors. The fresh air renews your holiday-frazzled mind while the activity recharges your body.
There’s something for the entire family to do to enjoy the outdoors on Christmas day or the days surrounding this special time spent with family and friends that doesn’t take a lot of effort or money.
Christmas Eve party
For a truly memorable Christmas Eve, create a magical get-together in your backyard. Before the big event, string twinkling lights in the area, or line the space with candles in quart-sized mason jars so they’re ready to light before the festivities. Start a fire in the fire pit, light the candles or turn on the twinkle lights, and then sit back sharing stories of the year while enjoying roasted marshmallows and hot cocoa.
