A Merry College Christmas!

Congrats college students, you are finally done with exams and winter break is upon us. It is now that time that we travel back home – some take flights and others take long drives, but we all find our way to our families. While we all make our way home, I thought that I would share some fun holiday traditions that my roommates and I celebrated this year and a few plans that you might consider in your time off!

Among the spastic studying and finished finals, my roommates and I decorated the apartment to make it feel a little more merry as we sat in front of our computers, dreaming of Christmas break. We strung some globe lights around the living room, hung a few stockings, and lit seasonal candles, all to being the spreading of Christmas spirit. Every once in a while, we would jam to music and watch a few Hallmark movies as study breaks.

One of our roommates lives in California, so we made sure to have a family Christmas morning the day before she left. We slept in and woke up to coffee and presents under our pink tinsel tree. Having a morning to spend with each other and exchange presents was especially special for our little family and we will most DEFINITELY be doing that every year.

The night before our roommate flew home, we wrapped up our festivities with a holiday movie at the Northgate theater and managed to sneak a whole box of cookies into the theater. Four stars from myself for this year’s hit “Office Christmas Party” – pretty hilarious and very vulgar.

A few things to look forward to this break:

  • Woodland Park Zoo Lights – Seattle, WA /$9.95 until Jan. 1
  • Leavenworth, WA daily tree lighting – 12 pm-4 pm festivities
  • Color Me Mine – Mill Creek, WA /pottery painting
  • Snowflake Lane – Bellevue, WA until Dec. 24
  • Lights of Christmas – Warm Beach, WA /$16 until Dec. 28

What are some festivities you are looking forward to this break?

Relax & enjoy,
