Low on money this Christmas season? You don’t have to break the bank to make this yuletide one to remember for your family.
In fact, this is a perfect time to start new traditions! Try out these budget-friendly activities with friends and family and it might be your most memorable one yet.
1. Roller skating
You can go to a roller skate rink. Over the holiday’s special rinks might even be set up by individuals or groups, take your children there. Skating while playing your own music just feels very “New York in a Christmas movie!”
2. Christmas movies
Add a couple of movie nights to your calendar. You can buy or download as many Christmas movies as you want. Make sure your movie night is accompanied with a bowl of popcorn and some other yummy stuff.
3. Try camping indoors
Set up a tent in the living room with your friends and camp by the Christmas tree. Do some crazy games of truth or dare, exchange gifts and tell each other amazing Christmas stories.
4. Try Karaoke on Christmas Eve
What better way to sing Bethlehem songs to each other than on Christmas Eve?
Organise your friends and go out to belt a tune or more in the spirit of Christmas. Have little and grown kids? Then organise a karaoke at your place and even invite other family members to join in the fun.
5. Take a long drive with friends
Sometimes all you need is a road trip with friends. So, power your happy and go for a long drive with your fellow youngins. Ensure you have enough food in your boot for the drive.
6. Visit your neighbours
Do you know your neighbours? I’ve heard a lot of people say they don’t. Want to know the way to their hearts? Deliver Christmas cheer. You can pick up the cutest holiday-themed baskets, add a few cookies and a Christmas card, bundle up, and spend an evening being neighbourly.
7. Host a Christmas party
A holiday party doesn’t have to be expensive. Just invite friends to hang out with everyone pitching in with some food or drinks.
