6✮ Go outside and play with the snow! Build a snowman, build a snow angel and take lots of pictures with your family and friends!!! And at the end, play snowball fight!!!
7✮ Get in the car or walk around your neighborhood to see the christmas decoration and lights! I love doing this with my god-daughter and her sister, they love walking to the village and seeing the christmas lights!
8✮ Go ice-skating! What can be more fun than ice-skating?
9✮ Make handmade cards, write your wishes and send them to friends and family. I used to do this many years ago but I stopped (don't know why) but I love this tradition. I also used to collect all the christmas cards that others sent to us!

12✮ Make a Christmas pajama party or an indoors picnic! Wear your festive (or matching) pajamas, place a nice tablecloth on the floor and eat your lovely dinner in front of the tv!
