The holiday season is such a magical time of year with so much to look forward to. From baking in the kitchen to watching Christmas movies, there are endless festive activities. As we age, some holiday traditions become harder to do. While you may not be able to do everything you once did, there are so many things you can do this holiday season to get into the spirit!

We've compiled a list of easy ideas that will bring all the joy, love, and laughter into the upcoming holidays. 

#1: Decorate

One of the best ways to get into the festivities is by decorating. Putting up décor around your home will bring back so many wonderful memories from past holidays. Plus, there's nothing better than waking up to a festive home each day! 

#2: Bake

Whether you're baking with grandchildren or friends, sharing your favorite family recipe is always special. Spread the love by sharing the sweet treats with your neighbors!

#3: Movies

Is there anything better than putting on your favorite holiday movie? While you could watch it any time of the year, we all know holiday movies are best watched next to a fire while drinking hot cocoa!

#4: Holiday Party

Holidays are meant to be with the people you love. A holiday party is a great way to spend time with your friends and family. It doesn't have to be big; it just has to be fun!

#5: Send Cards

Let your loved ones know you're thinking about them this season by sending a holiday card. Bonus if you make it yourself! 

Of course, these are only a few ideas for the holiday season! You can do so many other things, both by yourself or with loved ones, during this time of year.
