Xmas Party Ideas
Snow day sledding party
If you get snowed in, theres no reason for you to stay inside! Watch the weather forecast for a weekend when heavy snowfall is predicted, then set a tentative date with family and friends. When the flurries start to fall, bundle up, grab a few warm drinks and sleds, and head to the hill. Spend an afternoon (or just an hour or two) sledding, then retreat back inside for a warm dinner.
