It’s that time of year. Christmas is here. Everybody’s back together again. Spreading the joy, spreading good cheer, toasting to another year’s end.” I love the holidays. Every year, my family and I try to find holiday activities that we can enjoy together. This year, I thought I would share some of those activities with you.
