Alexa Y. - These are some GREAT holiday ideas, girls! I really love celebrating the holiday season as much as I can, and your suggestions are PERFECT. I’m especially excited to (hopefully) watch Frozen this weekend!

Candice - Fun list! The holidays are always a fun time of year and I love doing all of the things you listed! We’ve got a Christmas light thing at the zoo called Zoolight Safari. I’ve been wanting to go since I was 19 and first heard about it, but I want to go on a date there. 😉

Ellie - I love this post! Such perfect suggestions. I’ve been dying to see Frozen! I’m so glad to hear you loved it because now I’m even more excited to see it! Also, I really need some hot chocolate in my life.

Lisa - Something about this time of year just makes me feel so dang crafty! The gift tags are a GREAT idea!

Can I just suggest getting your bake on as well? I’ve got peppermint fudge and oreo bark on the docket for this week. YES PLEASE.

Rachel - This is such a fun feature/idea! I’m with Magan on the whole holiday lights thing. In the downtown area they do this big lights festival and all the business are decorated and it’s very pretty, so I’m excited to see that again this year. Ice skating is a huge holiday to-do for me. I live near the official Olympic training facility and they allow the public to skate there so that’s where you can find me this winter!

Jen @ Pop! Goes The Reader - Sometimes there’s nothing more fun than mixing things up a little and doing something outside of your comfort zone, and as a regular reader of Rather Be Reading I have to tell you how much I appreciated and enjoyed your rather unconventional post today! I’ve heard nothing but wonderful things about Frozen and can hardly wait until I sneak an opportunity to see it myself 😀 As to the rest of your list – Your choices are fantastic! Hot chocolate and Christmas lights can brighten even the dreariest day, and while I don’t have as much time for Christmas crafts as I would like, I try to complete at least one project every year. I find it’s a really great way to decompress and unwind a little.

Maggie @ Just a Couple More Pages - I love Christmas lights! One of the few reasons I’m excited to be living in the suburbs again, haha. And hot chocolate, I can’t remember the last time I had hot chocolate!

Ginger @ GReads! - Really loving the non traditional posts people are doing around the holidays. I’ll be doing my own on Thursday! Your to-do list looks amazing. I want to see Frozen! But I think my sister took the nephew to see it already. I guess I don’t need a child with me to see it though, right? hehe Love looking at holiday lights, too. We are going to the Houston Zoo this year, where they’ll have a special holiday lights event. I bet the boys will love it! My annual holiday movies that I watch each year are The Holiday and Love Actually. Can’t wait to sit down with some warm, buttery popcorn & watch them!

Meg - Ah, those post makes me happy! I’m so excited it’s December and definitely pumped to watch some cheesy Christmas movies with hot chocolate in hand. I just may get my Pinterest on, too . . .

alice-jane - I love this list! Hot chocolate + movies + lights sounds amazing to me. I love holiday DIYs, too, since they’re always so cute and what’s a better way to express your gratitude and love with a handmade gift?
