Late fall and early winter are when households make use of the fireplace. Both outdoor firepits and indoor fire stoves make for great gathering spots. Here are some fun fireplace activities to partake in during the Christmas holidays.
1. Game Night
We recommend holiday activities that involve a lot of interaction, such as Pictionary or Cranium. If this is an adult-only event, then adding some red wine to the mix adds to the fun. If this is a family gathering with kids, then serve eggnog and apple cider.
2. Shish Kabob Party
Prepare various ingredients, such as organic meats and vegetables. Cooking shish kabobs is ideal if you have an outdoor firepit and a grill or smoker for preparing the food. Once you prepare everything, set the food next to the firepit and allow guests to create their own kabobs. You can end the night by breaking out the makings for smores and using leftover skewers for roasting marshmallows.
3. Casino Royale
Card games can be delightfully fun holiday activities. Break out the playing cards and play an array of classics from blackjack to crazy eights. In lieu of poker chips, use holiday treats like sugar cookies or milk duds for wagers. Play some holiday music in the background for a more festive mood.
4. Indoor Picnic
This is ideal for a small group of two to four people. Plan everything in a picnic basket just as you would with a typical outdoor luncheon. We especially recommend this as a personal holiday retreat for couples or between parents and children. Food can consist of holiday classics, such as casserole, sliced turkey, and peppermint bark.
