Christmas is the time of the year when people let loose! It's time to have fun, to be with family, eat good food and drink a little more than usual. Fortunately, you can fully enjoy the holidays and have fun while staying safe. Having a good holiday doesn't need to be done carelessly or dangerously. Here are 10 ways to make sure your Christmas holiday is fun, memorable and safe.
If you are going out, plan for a designated driver. You should actually do this all year long, not just during the holidays, but it's a good reminder, especially for those who don't go out much.
If you are the host, make sure you don't drink too much. If you are hosting a party, you're the one responsible. You want to keep your mind clear to make sure nobody is going to drive drunk and that everyone stay safe.
It is always fun to put up the Christmas tree with the family or with friends. Make sure you buy a fresh Christmas tree. By "fresh," I mean one that isn't dry. A dry tree can be a fire hazard.
A fun idea, you can light candles and sing songs with your family. This is a great way to fully experience the Christmas spirit and tradition. To stay safe, make sure you keep all lighter and candles away from children.
Cook Christmas dinner instead of using a buffet service or packaged food. The delicious aroma of the food will fill up your house and really bring Christmas alive in your home. Children love to take part in dinner preparations so involve them as much as possible!
Put up lights with your family and friends. This is a really fun activity to do and gives you a good dose of fresh air. It also makes your home more festive! Be sure not use outdoor lighting indoors or indoor lighting outdoors.
If you live in a snowy climate, take the time to go tobogganing with friends! You will feel like children again, and that it the true spirit of Christmas. It is also another way to get some fresh air, after being cooped up inside with parties and diners. Just make sure you slide far away from the streets and highways. Stay safe!
If it's too cold to go tobogganing, rent a movie and watch it under warm blankets, with popcorn and a nice holiday beverage. The holidays should be a relaxing time.
When you unwrap your presents, do not burn wrapping paper in your fireplace. This will create a lot of smoke and can be hazardous since wrapping papers ignite very fast and burn intensely.
Finally, just have fun! The Christmas holiday is the best time of the year. It's a time to be jolly and happy.
Above all, when in doubt and you can figure it out, find your nearest food truck! They are sure to have delicious eats with a holiday spin for you to enjoy. Happy Holidays from Tampa Bay Food Trucks!
