1. Make a Polaroid Scrapbook of Your Break
First things first, you should buy a polaroid or disposable camera and make a scrapbook of all your amazing, Winter Break adventures.

2. Take a Picture with a Snowman
Real snowman, fake snowman. Selfie that snow.
3. Watch At Least One Holiday-Related Movie
This one is super easy! Many cable channels air at least one holiday movie a day, but try looking up some old ones or classics you love.
4. Go Ice Skating
Quite possibly the most seasonal of them all, ice skating screams winter time.
5. Give Someone a Gift Who is Not Your Friend or Family Member
Visit a neighbor or someone you admire but don’t know a gift this holiday season.
6. Make a Gingerbread House
Gingerbread houses are tedious, but insanely delicious to make. Much like carving a pumpkin, gingerbread houses are for the patient and dessert-inclined.
7. Kiss Someone at the Stroke of Midnight on New Year’s Eve
Start the New Year with a bang and give someone you love (or like) a kiss at midnight. Bonus points if it’s not a friend or relative.
8. Bake Cookies
Nothing smells more homey this season than fresh-baked cookies in the oven.
9. Stay in Your PJs All Day
For at least one day. If not all two weeks.
10. Play in the Snow
Whether you need to road trip to the snow or it’s in your backyard, you need to throw at least one snowball at someone. Preferably your siblings.
11. Read a New Book
Two weeks is plenty of time to start a brand new book!
12. Visit a polar animal
Unless you’re planning on visit the North Pole, we mostly just mean you should see a penguin or polar bear at the zoo.
13. Catch a Snowflake on your Tongue
A little advanced on this list if you don’t live near the snow, although you can get super creative with this one, too.
14. Go to a Cafe and Try Something New
Local cafes are where a lot of inspiration happens. Try a new type of tea latte or hot chocolate drink and feel the good vibes.
15. Set New Year’s Resolutions
Set your intentions for 2017 (and actually stick to making them happen)!
16. Relax in a Hot Tub
Outdoor hot tubs give us major Aspen vibes. A sauna will do, too.
The holiday season is about giving and sharing joy. Try to do this at least once over the break, whether you donate your gifts, time or money.
18. Wear a Fancy Outfit
There are endless possibilities when it comes to dressing up over the break! Bust out your nicest dress and fanciest shoes to get decked out this year.
19. Make a Fully Loaded Hot Chocolate Drink
Marshmallows, candy canes, whipped cream, peppermint bark, gingerbread… the possibilities are endless in your ultimate hot chocolate drink!
20. Ride a Snowmobile
The ultimate in fun and exciting winter activities.
21. Write a Letter to a Loved One
Who writes letters anymore? This means the recipient will be super surprised (and grateful) to receive one.
22. Ride in a Horse Drawn Carriage
Many cities and towns offer this old school pastime. It’s jolly and fun for a reason!
23. Wear an Ugly Sweater
‘Tis the season for the ugliest sweater.
24. Enjoy Your Neighborhood Christmas Lights
One of the prettiest spectacles of the season is in your own neighborhood. Walk around with a blanket and hot chocolate or drive around to see the pretty lights.
25. Try a Winter Sport
From skating to snowboarding and everything in between, you’ve got plenty of options when it comes to winter sports. Just pick one that won’t kill you.
26. Knit Something
Knit sweaters and mittens are in fashion, so save some money and make your own!
27. Sing a Carol
In the privacy of your own home or door-to-door. Just sing along to a merry tune.
