It’s the most wonderful time of year, for sure, but it also happens to be the loneliest time of year if you’re single. But if you have friends, you’re lucky. Instead of staying in and moping around about your single status, why don’t you reach out to your friends who are also single? Get ready for a fun holiday season with your best friends.
Today, New Jersey Singles reviews wintery date ideas to spend Christmas with your closest friends and loved ones.
1. Have a Christmas movie marathon.
Home Alone, It’s a Wonderful Life, A Christmas Story, and Charlie Brown… There are so many Christmas movies playing this time of year, so call up your closet friends, dress up in your comfy PJs, grab some popcorn, and have an all-day Christmas movie marathon.
2. Bake some cookies.
Nothing will get you in the holiday spirit faster than baking some delicious Christmas cookies. If you and your friends are feeling a little daring, why not bake a gingerbread house from scratch? This is a fun and delicious activity to get in you the Christmas mood.
3. Buy an ugly Christmas sweater.
We’re pretty confident you have a few holiday parties lined up, or maybe you’re hosting one of your own. Why not grab the attention of someone you have your eyes on by wearing a quirky Christmas sweater? Be creative with this one because the ugliest Christmas sweater always gets the most attention.
4. Go to a holiday event.
Whether you’re a concert fan, sports fanatic, or theatre lover, there are plenty of events happening around the holiday season. It’s Christmas, you deserve to spoil yourself with front row seats, don’t you think?
5. Enjoy the winter weather.
Snow is so magical this time of the year (when you don’t have to drive in it). After the first big snowfall, hang out with your friends and make snow angels or have a snowball fight. No snow? Check out a local ice-skating rink instead. Just make sure you wear padding just in case you fall (just kidding).
6. Eat, eat, eat.
It’s the holiday season and everyone is entitled to do a little over-indulging in some rich and delicious holiday treats. Go ahead and have that extra cookie. Or why not make it two? Who cares! This year, forget counting those calories; after all, those fitness resolutions don’t start until the new year.
7. Hit up the mall for some shopping.
Christmas shopping is so much better when you’re doing it with your friends. After you and your friends shop til you drop, get a Christmas picture with Santa and post it on your social media accounts. Hey, Christmas isn’t just for kids.
8. Get your nails done or treat yourself to a nice haircut.
Go all out and get a festive mani or a new hairstyle for the festive season. While wearing red and green a week before Christmas is a must, the holiday mani and pedi will also get you in the spirit.
9. Decorate your place.
Sure, you don’t have a partner to help you decorate your home, but you do have good friends. Now is the time to break out those boxes and deck the halls. You can even dress up your cat or dog with reindeer antlers. The more holiday decorations you have, the better you’ll feel.
10. Spread holiday cheer.
Ride around your town singing your favorite holiday tunes. Just kidding! Spread the love by helping those in need. Gather up your friends and volunteer at a local shelter, soup kitchen, or food bank. You’ll feel so much better by helping others in need this time of year.
Follow these ten fun ways to enjoy Christmas with your best friends and you’ll quickly forget the fact that you’re single for the holidays.
