Play A Board Game
If you or anyone in your family is highly competitive, this might not be the best choice to maintain a “chill” Christmas. However, if everyone agrees to just have fun, this could end up being a fantastic way to spend the day. Whether your family rarely plays games, or you’re seasoned hobbyists sitting down for your next play session, there’s a ton of games to choose from.
Make A Christmas Craft
Christmas crafts are a fun and creative way to spend the day, especially if you have young kids. You could even put on a Christmas flick while making your craft! From easier projects you can do with very young children, to more advanced décor projects you can do on your own, there are a plethora of choices.
Go For a Walk
Sometimes the best way to enjoy Christmas Day is in the great outdoors. If the weather holds up, have the family put on their coats and take a nice afternoon stroll. Even if it’s just around the block, it can be a nice way to recharge and appreciate the day. You can even look at some of the Christmas decorations around the neighborhood!
