Top Things to Do the Day After Christmas
After Christmas Christmas Leftovers .I personally love the day after Christmas. It's the best time of year. Presents are open, the kids are distracted playing with their new toys, and all the cooking is over with. Christmas is the stressful time of
year, and most of us can't wait for the day after Christmas to come so that you can finally relax. But what should you do on the day after Christmas? Where should you go? Well here are a few of my fun tips to get you on your way.
1. Kick Everyone Out of Your House
Yeap we often have to many guest in our houses during the Holiday. So when December 26th rolls around it's time to kick everyone out. Help your guest pack their stuff up. Make them a plate of leftovers for their trip back to where ever they came from. Pretend that you will miss them dearly but be firm in expressing that it's time for them to go back to their home. Cause just like a hotel check out time is 11am...so let your guest know that they need to have their stuff packed and out of the door by 11am.
2. Don't Cook! Go out to dinner!
You have had enough cooking to last you until next Christmas. Even though you have leftovers in the refrigerator you should take yourself out with your spouse for a quite evening of dining. Pick a place where there will not be to many kids around and where you can listen to modern music, feel sexy, and have a cocktail without being eye-balled by your in-laws.
3. Return the Crap
Now if you are a daring soul and want to risk going to the mall then do so. You WILL receive some craptastical gift from your kids or in-laws. But while it is the thought that counts you had your eye on something else and not that crap that you got. So take it back and get what you want. The day after Christmas is one of the biggest shopping days of the year. So be warned that you might risk long lines and tons of people out and about.
4. Do Nothing At All
Sometimes the best thing to do is to do nothing at all. Sit at home and play game on your computer. Take a relaxing bath. Catch up on some sleep. But take the day after Christmas as some personal time for you and you only.
