Here are a few more ideas on how to best share the holiday spirit:
- Embrace your family's holiday traditions together, like decorating the Christmas tree or baking holiday treats.
- Go on an adventure. Does your town have a tree lighting ceremony? How about a ski mountain or ice skating rink?
- Have your student prepare a holiday dish from home that they usually eat this time of year. You may find that your culinary traditions are more similar than you think!
- Countdown to midnight with your student on New Year's Eve. Don't forget to watch the ball drop in Times Square in New York City!
