Holiday guide 2012: what to do?

It’s holiday season and a lot of you are in vacation and can now enjoy doing whatever you like to do. Sometimes, you may ask yourself: What am I doing today? Well to answer that question I’ve put a top 10 of some great activities to do this holiday season with your loved ones.

1. Do some winter sports. Ice-skating or skiing, choose the one you prefer, put on some warm clothes and enjoy.

2. Read books. Get cozy at home and read the newest chick lit, thriller or sci-fi book.

3. Bake cookies. Get in the kitchen and bake some of your favorite cookies.

4. Go for a long walk. Dress warmly, put on good warm boots and have a nice long walk around town.

5. Try an exotic restaurant. Indian or asian cuisine, something with a lot of spices. Share some plates and dig in!

6. Do a movie marathon. It’s freezing outside and you would rather stay inside? Why not watch some James Bond, Bourne or Mission impossible and do a marathon of your favorite movies.

7. Go shopping. With all the sales, there’s no better time to make some good deals than now.

8. Catch up with friends. Go grab a coffee or a tea with some friends to catch up with them.

9. Clean. You have some free time so take some time to clean your room, your wardrobe, your desk, you might discover things you forgot you had.

10. Gather around fondue. Make some cheese, chinese or bourguignonne fondue and gather around for a long supper. Don’t forget the chocolate fondue at the end…!

Enjoy your holidays!

Hasta pronto!
