You Will Need
- Family activities
Convert parties to giving events
Convert the usual office, family, or neighborhood party to a giving event, volunteering to do for others or to donate money to a cause.
Write Christmas letters to others, which will honor and delight them, and which you will enjoy as well.
Host a goofy gift exchange
Host a White Elephant Exchange, in which friends and family bring unwanted gifts and all take turns pulling a number out of a hat to pick the next bizarre present. Don't laugh too hard: that gift might be your surprise next year.
Check out light displays
Ride with the family to city, neighborhood, or public park Christmas light displays and enjoy the sights.
Attend church and community events
Attend church and community plays, nativities, musicals, recitals, choir performances, or special meals that celebrate the season of giving.
Eat and be merry
Eat and be merry during the holidays with those you love. Coordinate a potluck with relatives or neighbors to get together and share good cheer. That's what it's all about.
