We’ve made it to mid-December, and this means we’re in the heart of the holiday season. In many places, temperatures are cold (or at least colder than they were a few months ago) and snow may even be on the ground. Everyone is getting ready to spend time with loved ones, either locally where they live or somewhere else. Christmas is a time for love, gratitude, and time with those you love. Sure, giving each other gifts is fun too, but don’t forget what this season is actually all about.
With that in mind, there are plenty of holiday activities that you can do with those you love.
Who needs to spend money on stuff, when you can spend it on time spent with someone you care about?
If you’re unsure of where to start planning, don’t fret. There are plenty of options out there, and the one you enjoy most won’t be the same as the next person.
For that reason, I’ve put together the best holiday activity for you based on your astrological sign. Read on to see which one may be best-suited for you. If you aren’t sure which sign you are, look for the birthdates below each one in the list.
Capricorn: Make A Classic Cookie Recipe
(Dec 22 – Jan 19)
Capricorns like their traditions and rules, and are sometimes called “old souls.” You value what you know. With that in mind, a great activity for you this month is to make a classic Christmas cookie recipe — whatever is traditional to you. If you’re looking for inspiration, there are plenty of collections like this one from Food Network.
Aquarius: Go Ice Skating
(Jan 20 – Feb 18)
Aquarius is ruled by a planet that spins on its side, and similarly these folks like to form their own path with twists and turns! The perfect activity for you if you’re an Aquarius is to go ice skating — a holiday classic. Even warm cities have skating rinks, but if you live in a cold climate you can probably find one outside. Don’t forget your mittens!
Pisces: Go Enjoy The Outdoors
(Feb 19 – Mar 20)
It’s said that Pisces often feel like a piece of them is always swimming away, trying to escape reality. Sometimes the hustle and bustle of the holiday season can be a lot to handle, so it’s a great time to get outside and escape for a little bit. Find a hiking spot nearby where you live or just go for a nice, calming walk — whatever will bring you peace of mind.
Aries: Host A Baking Contest
(Mar 21 – Apr 19)
Aries can be fiercely competitive, but their friends still love them for it. Create some friendly competition this holiday season by hosting a baking competition. Have everyone make their favorite cookie, cake, or otherwise, then have everyone taste and vote for their favorite (all for fun of course).
Taurus: Watch a Classic Christmas Rom-Com (or Two)
(Apr 20 – May 20)
If you’re a Taurus, then your sign is ruled by Venus — the planet of beauty and love. Since you’re a lover of romance, you should spend an evening watching a classic Christmas romantic comedy, such as Love Actually. Pour yourself a glass of wine and enjoy!
Gemini: Go On A Sleigh Ride
(May 21 – June 20)
Geminis are said to have two people inside them, and sometimes it can feel like they’re always flip-flopping their personality. Something is always changing! Because of that, the best holiday activity for you is a sleigh ride — you’ll constantly get a change of scenery as your trip goes along. Aren’t sure where to go?
