How to Make Christmas 2018 the Best Yet

Christmas is here again, and families everywhere are already thinking about how they should spend it this time. After all, this is the time of the year when people travel thousands of miles to spend precious time with loved ones and money is spent on gifts that will put a smile on the faces of those they love. In addition to this, some of the best memories are often created during this festive period! You may need ideas regarding how you can make this Christmas better than the last few you’ve had, however. Look no further; the following tips will ensure you make Christmas 2018 the best yet! 

Throw a Party 

A party is something that’s difficult to forget, so think about throwing one this Christmas if you’ve got the resources. It’s a chance to not only make Christmas fun for you, but also for those close to you. Some things you may need for your party are decorations that correlate with your chosen theme and a plan for food and drinks. To throw an easy holiday party, it’s advisable that you stick to a simple menu, choosing appetizers that can be made ahead of time and setting up a self-serve cocktail bar. 

Watch a Christmas-Themed Show 

There are so many Christmas-themed activities that take place during the holiday season. One of them is a series of theater shows which can help individuals truly feel the spirit of Christmas. You should think about going to watch a Christmas-themed show such as The Nutcracker as a way to create a new memory. A Christmas Carol is also one of the best Christmas 2018 shows to consider watching amongst others. Look for tickets online and see if you can get deals for booking in advance. Of course, there are a variety of other shows you can watch that aren’t Christmas-themed if you’d prefer that instead! 

Spend Quality Time With Family 

Sometimes, it’s the simple things that make Christmas the most memorable. On that note, why not try spending quality time indoors with your loved ones? Perhaps allocate a day to talking, cooking and playing games as a way of catching up on how the year has been and sharing sacred moments. Activities you may want to try are decorating the tree together, baking special treats, or roasting marshmallows over an open fire (however, please do be safe with this activity, and monitor children carefully). Having a classic Christmas movie playing in the background could also add a nice touch.

Go Ice-Skating 

For a more physical and fun idea, ice-skating is a way to make Christmas this year the best yet. It’s the perfect season because the weather tends to be chilly, meaning you can bring out your warm sweaters and scarves. Going as a family should make it all the more entertaining, so see if you can find any places you can skate near you.

Christmas doesn’t have to be the same every year if you don’t want it to be! Although the love shared and feelings of warmth and joy you feel should be consistent, what you can get up to can change. By choosing to have new experiences with the people you love, it should make it the best Christmas yet.


  1. The fourth one for me.

    Movie marathon always. :)

  2. Those lamps rock! When it's summer I always make myself a promise to go skating, but when winter (and the accompanying cold) are here, I don't feel so brave anymore. Do you have a skating rink nearby?
