You don’t have to stay indoors all day long on a snowy day. Bundle up and brave the cold for an hour or so — just enough time to have a snowball fight like you used to do when you were a kid!

4. Watch Holiday Movies

Turn on the TV in the winter, and you can find any number of holiday movies playing, or pop your favorites from home into the DVD player. What better way to get into the spirit of the season than watching How The Grinch Stole Christmas or It’s a Wonderful Life?

5. Tell Stories Together

Making your own entertainment can be as much fun as watching someone else’s. Cuddle up together around the fireplace and tell your favorite stories, or make up your own and see who can write the best one.
