The holidays are my favorite time of year. I remember as a kid following my mom around the kitchen so that I could be her taste tester for all of the yummy cakes and pies she was preparing for the holidays. I can still remember the smells in the kitchen and the smiles on the faces of the recipients of those cakes and pies. I remember getting in the car as a family and driving around to look at all of the houses with Christmas lights shining on the dark winter nights. I even remember how excited I would get when it was time to decorate the tree. In honor of celebrating this beautiful season and Christmas holiday, I created a festive list of fun things to do that will get you and your loved ones in the holiday spirit. Check them out below.
