Have The Best Winter With This Winter Bucket List

Want to make this the best winter yet? I've put together a fun, winter bucket list just for you!

Living in the south, it doesn't get as cold as it does in like New York or something, but it definitely gets cold. We have days where it gets below freezing, but I would say the normal temperature is probably in the 40s here in Atlanta.

Even though we don't get much snow, it still feels like winter when you can get all bundled up and have to heat your car up before going to class or work. As I've said probably too many times, I really love winter. It is my favorite season and I always like to make it worthwhile. I don't want to wake up when temperatures are back in the 90s and realize that I totally just let my favorite season breeze by without taking full advantage of it!

Want to make this the best winter yet? Here's my winter bucket list!

Host a Christmas cookie decorating party
Invite all your closest friends and family and ask everyone to bring a batch of cookies! Supply fun cookie-decorating essentials like icing, sprinkles, candies, even edible glitter and start decorating!

Make homemade hot chocolate, wear festive pajamas, and watch a Christmas movie
Get matching pajamas for you and your bae (I got these), make some hot chocolate, and pop in a Christmas movie! You can't go wrong with Elf or The Santa Clause!

Take a picture with Santa
I don't care how old you are, a picture with Santa is a must every single winter! 

Build a snowman
Now, it doesn't snow very much in Atlanta, but when it does, I always a make a snowman, even if it a very small one! Don't get snow at all? Get creative!

Go ice skating
We've got a bunch of ice skating rinks here, so this is just a must! I haven't done this yet because I am scared that I'm going to like break my leg or something. Got any tips?

Have a bonfire
This was one of my favorite things to do in high school! Host a fun little bonfire and get cozy. 

Decorate a gingerbread house
Don't you just love a good gingerbread house? I've never actually eaten the house. I just decorate it!. What about you?

Create a winter playlist
Your winter playlist can be some of your favorite Christmas songs or even just your favorite songs of the moment. Spotify is the best for this!

Volunteer somewhere
During this season, I am reminded of just how blessed I am. Find a cause that really speaks to you and volunteer. If you don't volunteer and give back regularly, now is the best time to start. 

Take a bubble bath
Cold weather makes a hot bubble bath so much better, am I right?

Go stargazing on a clear night
While you stargaze, sip on some apple cider or hot chocolate.

Host a holiday party
Christmas is very low key at my house. I mean, we don't get out of our pajamas! Hosting a holiday party allows us to dress up and celebrate the holidays with family and friends that we won't see on Christmas.

Clean out your closet and donate to those in need
We all probably have a few clothing items we no longer wear and instead of just tossing it in the trash, someone would love that coat you haven't worn in two years.

How many of these have you done already?
