10 things to do during the holiday season for adults

With the holiday comes fun winter activities for lots of laughter and joy. Check out a curated list of what to do this season!

Hey hey ! It’s day one of blogmas and our first post is 10 things to do during the holiday season for adults.

I love spending the holidays being with family, friends, or doing fun crafts and activities.

Here is a guide on how to have a blast this holiday season.

Host a game night

Game nights are perfect times for family and friends to gather around for a night of fun.

Some games you should play this season

  • Uno Flex
  • Clue
  • Uno Flip

Visit the city

Downtown Detroit has a giant Christmas tree.

If you live in a holiday festive city like Detroit than you probably have a annual Christmas tree lighting, or have some sort of event that celebrates the holidays.

Places to visit in Detroit

  • Beacon Park
  • Campus Martius
  • Cadillac Square
  • Monroe Street Midway Winter Wonderland

Host a ugly Christmas sweater party

It’s funny and definitely a good moment of laughter with friends or family .

Where to buy your next ugly Christmas sweater:

  • Amazon
  • Walmart
  • Target

Watch Christmas movies

It’s the perfect season to snuggle up under a blanket and have a cup of hot cocoa.

Movies I’ll be watching:

  • Home Alone
  • This Christmas
  • Almost Christmas

Bake a new dish

Chocolate chip cookies from 6:23 Detroit Shop.

Trying new dishes during the holiday are a must. A new snickerdoodle recipe, or a red velvet cake are just a few bake goods you could try out this year.

Try a new hot cocoa recipe

Pinterest has tons of hot cocoa recipes to try this year. One that been intriguing me is a strawberry favor.


Take a road trip to a cabin or if you’re in Michigan take a trip Up North.

Have a holiday photoshoot

Dollar Tree has many items for a perfect DIY holiday photoshoot.

Get crafty and do a holiday photoshoot. Rather it’s at home or done professionally it’s a great way to get cute and fancy and you can turn the photos into Christmas cards.

Spend times with love ones

Take a few days of hours of the week to spend it with friends and family especially if you haven’t seen them in a long time.

It can be a good time to bond and catch up.


Find your local shelters and see if they need assistance. This season can be hard on many but if you find yourself in a caring attitude make use of it.
