No December plans? Here is what you can do - Haybo Wena SA

Part of having a memorable Christmas is doing something fun.

Every other day of the year we are at home, work or school and that is why people choose to put on their best Christmas clothes and head out for a day of fun on Christmas day.

For many, it can be a challenge to figure out interesting activities to do. Maybe because you have seen it all, done it all, or, you are simply clueless.

There is also the fact that you may be cash-strapped or you just want to do something different. If this pretty much sums up your situation, have a look at these interesting ideas that may spark a cool holiday plan:

1. Take a road trip

Not everyone is a fan of road trips. But some people actually find it more interesting than taking a direct flight or a long boring train ride.

This year you can plan one with your friends or family to any spot you have wanted to visit for a long time. You could have stopovers, take lots of pictures and even have lunch in a new town.

2. Plan a small get-together

Being at home on Christmas doesn’t have to be a bummer. Once you have the right crowd around you, you will have a blast.

So, you could organise a party at your place and maybe even make it a family thing if you like. All you need is some good food, drinks and music, and you’re all set. You will probably have so much fun catching up that the party will extend to the next day.

3. Become a local tourist

Each town has its own tourist attractions that people don’t get to appreciate often. You might be near some of the best site seeing spots but never actually got the chance to visit because you’re often very busy.

You would be surprised to find that some of the most interesting tourist attractions are around you. Tag some friends along with you for the ultimate tourist experience this year.

4. Have a dinner date

This season could also be the best time for you to connect with your beau. It might have been a challenge to get some free time for a dinner date but now, you have the chance.

There are plenty of restaurants for you to choose from. And right now you still have some time to make early reservations as popular spots fill up fast. Don’t forget to take advantage of holiday discounts too.

5. Go for camping

Camping is an unconventional way to spend a holiday but, it might be the experience you need. Think about it, you will be away from technology and the city’s hustle and bustle which is very refreshing.

If this is something you would consider, research some of the camping sites around you. For the best camping experience, make sure you work with a checklist so you don’t forget to carry essential items if the spot doesn’t provide them. Otherwise, you may sleep hungry.

6. Go shopping

If you’re not planning to travel or do any other extravagant activities, you could do a bit of shopping around town.

Visit a new mall or different thrifting spots and grab a few items that you’ve been wanting to get. You can also have fun window shopping as well. It can be interesting to just look around and see what’s new, then go for lunch or dinner later.
