And since you’ll be getting yourself or a loved one a HoeJoe for Christmas, why not think of some fun things to do with friends and family over the Christmas Season!  Below are just a few great ideas that we offer up to you and yours this holiday season.

 

#1-Let’s talk about our favorite pastime- Bonfires!

Oh the weather outside it frightful….but the fun you can have is delightful so bring some blankets, some Christmas music, (or just sing Carols around the fire). Fill your thermos with hot chocolate or cider. Don’t forget the marshmallows for the kids and maybe adult beverages for the people over 21+.  Look at the stars and talk about the meaning of the upcoming holiday. (You can even look for the Star of David or watch for Santa, if you choose).

 

#2-Sparklers In The Snow What better way to welcome the new year than with ultra-festive sparklers? You could wave them around, dance with them, or (my favorite) stick them in the snow where their insanely hot temperatures can’t gitcha. (Common sense precautions apply!)

#3  Snow Ice Cream  Snow ice cream is a great treat and eveyrone can help. Here’s the basic recipe- but know you can                                                             add whatever flavors you desire. It’s fun to experiment!

Easy Snow Ice Cream Recipe

  • 1 gallon or big bowl full of snow
  • 1 cup sugar
  • 1 tsp vanilla extract
  • 1 cup cream or milk

Then just mix the ingredients together. You get the idea.

#4-Launch Sky Lanterns I first learned when we were in Florida over New Year’s Eve. Hundreds of people launched these wonderuful sky lanterns into the Sky and wished for a Wonderful New Year. Our Family now uses the tradition to also send off prayers to family and friends we want to remember. (The usual precautions regarding launching fire into the sky apply, of course!)

#5- Evening Hike  No matter where you live, its a great idea to get outside and walk after a big meal, or before everyone is nestled all snug in their beds. The cold air and brisk walk makes you feel alive.  An adults-only hike can be a welcome and rigorous workout, but taking the little ones is a perfect chance to discuss the beautifully complex motion of the solar system, and if they are too tired, wrap the in a blanket and put them in a wagon or stroller. Fresh air is a great way to tire them out!

#6-Gift Wrap Scavenger Hunt – If you get cabin fever, wrap up the clan and go outside to gather natural elements to adorn presents . Kids can scurry around the yard or park, hunting for pine cones, acorns, evergreen twigs, and any other pretty, natural elements that can be tied on a package. (Common sense don’t-let-kids-eat-mysterious-berries precautions apply!)

 

Bonfire Central wishes you all a Merry Christmas and a wonderful Bonfire Tonight or Any Night!
