4. Invite people over

Entertaining and hanging out with friends and family is a big part of what makes the holidays fun. Whether you host a big holiday meal or a wine-and-cheese open house, get the whole family involved. Have a board game night, host a dance, go on a long hike, go tobogganing as a big group if you live where there’s snow, or host a casual jam session for musician friends. If you have kids, show them how fun it is to throw a good party.
