Sometimes, with the hustle and bustle of the holiday season, it’s easy to get caught up in the stress and to-do lists. We’ve all been there. But, as we inch closer towards the end of the year, it’s time for us all to slow down and remember what this season really is all about.

Whether you’re staying close to home or traveling across the country, we hope you have a magical time with friends and family. We wish for your days to be filled with fun games, delicious meals around the table, and plenty of quality time with the ones you love.

If you are sticking around home and are looking for fun holiday activities to do with your loved ones, then why not try some of our ideas below?

Host a Holiday Movie Marathon

What would the holidays be without Rudolph, Frosty, or the lovable Charlie Brown? Gather up blankets, pour some hot chocolate, and turn on those holiday flicks. Some of our other favorites include Elf, A Christmas Story, and It’s a Wonderful Life.

Have a Holiday Cookie Bake Off

Invite friends and family over to create their best holiday cookie recipe. Pass out score cards and get each person to rate the different cookies. Little trophies, certificates, or a pair of holiday socks are fun little prizes to pass out to the winners. Make sure to have plenty of milk!

Plan for the New Year with Friends

Everyone is used to the custom of creating New Year’s Resolutions. But, something that helps everyone actually keep those resolutions is to plan them with a friend. Carve out a day to sit down with a friend over coffee and chat about what you’d like to accomplish in the new year. Having a buddy to help keep you accountable can make all the difference.

However you decide to celebrate this joyous time of year, the staff at Jack Daniels Audi of Upper Saddle River would like to wish you and yours Happy Holidays and a Happy New Year!
