The Most Wonderful Time of the Year
By Zoe Cox
So it’s finally the holiday season; the season everybody has been looking forward to since the beginning of January. School is finally out, testing is finally over, and finally, it’s time to relax. However, while doing nothing and having no responsibilities seems like the dream, after two weeks, it may get absolutely boring. So instead of staying at home and watching Netflix all break, get out and try something new! There are plenty of things to do in Colorado, especially during the holiday season.
Colorado is known for its Rocky Mountains, and long ski slopes. Although we take it all for granted, traveling to the Rocky Mountains during any time of the year is a trip you will not regret. Between the beautiful views and fun activities going skiing or snowboarding is the perfect thing to do over the holiday break. There are plenty of places to go such as Keystone, Breckenridge, Winter Park, and many more. Skiing is a fun thing to do with both friends and family, and is a trip you’ll never forget.
If skiing or snowboarding isn’t for you, and you’d rather do something that involves staying close to home, no worries! There are plenty of things to do, such as driving around and looking at Christmas lights, making cookies with friends or family, or going sledding. Each and every one of these activities can and will create memories that will last forever, and could potentially be newfound traditions.
However, if kicking back and staying at home seems way more entertaining than anything else, then maybe make good use of your time in the holiday season. Watch a holiday movie, listen to the holiday music, and create holiday crafts. There are plenty of things to do during this year’s holiday break, and if not, there is always next year!
