Break is a great way to kick back, stay cozy and have a great time with friends and family. With almost two full weeks off of school, there is plenty of time to fit in seasonal festivities on your agenda. If you are looking for holiday activities to occupy your time, consider choosing from these:
Look at Christmas Lights
What a great and inexpensive way to get into the holiday spirit. Eye catching light decorations are fun and whimsical to look at. Three of the main light attractions are Hershey’s Sweet Lights, the lights on 34th Street, Baltimore, MD and Rocky Ridge. Hershey’s Sweet Lights last for two miles long. You can drive through loads of lit scenery views for only $25 per car. The attraction in Baltimore is a classic for many families. The houses on 34th street never fail to impress with their outstanding all-over lights. Viewers can either drive through the street or walk up to the houses. Located in Rocky Ridge County Park in York, PA, there is a light festival from 5 p.m. to 9 p.m. Be sure to view this festivity before it closes on December 31. All of these light attractions make for great pictures and an even better time!
Bake Sweet Treats
‘Tis the season for baking, so fill your kitchen with warm aromas of the holiday season. Classic flavors consist of
peppermint, chocolate, cinnamon and nutmeg. Perhaps plan a cookie party with your friends, or even hand out homemade desserts as gifts. Classic chocolate chip cookies and peppermint bark are huge hits during this time of the year. Baking with friends and family creates a cozy vibe and can serve as a relaxing pastime.
Drinking hot cocoa, sitting by the fire and watching a movie is a
picturesque moment. So why not enjoy it yourself? With the Hallmark Channel and ABC’s 25 Days of Christmas, there are plenty of opportunities to watch many Holiday movies. Whether these movies are new or old classics, they will surely bring a smile to your face and will get you ready for the holidays.

Buy Yourself a Christmas Present
The start of December marks the season of giving. After spending so much money on gifts for others, it is nice to buy yourself something. Besides, no one knows you better than yourself. School, up until Christmas Break, can be exhausting, so treating yourself with a new pair of shoes or accessories is perfectly acceptable.
