There’s no doubt that the holiday season is one of the best times of the year – whether or not you celebrate the religious aspect of Christmas. There are many wonderful things you can do on Christmas Day, however, what if you just want to stay home and chill?

Whatever you do, we want to make sure you enjoy this holiday season to the fullest. Whether you celebrate it alone or with family, Christmas is all about smiles and happiness, no matter where you spend it.

Here are 7 things you can do this Christmas day at home to make this day memorable!

Movie Marathon: Find some new favourites or throw it back to your childhood TV memories. Today is the perfect excuse to stay inside, relax and enjoy in front of the television with your favourite snacks.

Family Games: It’s important to take your mind off work this season. And what better way to do that than to enjoy playing games with your family or group of friends. So get out that stack of cards and get to shuffling.

Try Out New Recipes: As with most African families, Christmas day must involve cooking a variety of dishes for the celebration. Try something different from rice and chicken with a new recipe today.

Give Gifts: Whether or not you believe in Santa Claus, it’s the season to give and receive gifts. So put a smile on a friend’s or family member’s face – you could even gift someone who you don’t know and that’s the Christmas spirit!

Have a Craft-Making Challenge: Polish your DIY skills today and make some chic Christmas decorations. You can add a competitive twist to it by giving a prize to the person with the best decorations.

Create a Christmas playlist: If you favour Pentatonix or old Elvis Presley Christmas albums, you should create a playlist, crank the volume up and open a bottle of wine.

Reach Out to Old Friends and Family: It’s the perfect time to reconnect with the people in your life you haven’t been in touch with all through the year. Just call to spread the Christmas cheer!
