There’s something about the holidays that makes you feel like a tourist in your own town. Everyone seems friendlier, the storefronts all look new and festive, and there’s excitement in the air. As much as I want to be a jaded New Yorker, I still get giddy when I see the tree at Rockefeller Center. So on this fine, upcoming weekend when all the holidays collide, go outside and do something a tourist would do. It will make you appreciate where you live and it will get you in the holiday spirit. And if you you live in a town that doesn’t have many attractions here are some suggestions:
- Get some hot chocolate – whipped cream is a must.
- Go ice skating – come on every town has a rink. Or at least a neighboring town has a rink.
- Go on a midnight walk.
- Find the street that is known for their Christmas lights and take a picture in front of each house.
- Deliver homemade cookies to all of your friends.
But then again it’s always nice to stay at home with your loved ones, and drink hot apple cider:
