So youíd love to see the snow of winter, but itís just not happening where you live? Count yourself lucky and get out there to enjoy your winter break without the hassles of snow boots and icing conditions Ė believe me, there are a lot of jealous New Englanders just thinking of your shorts and t-shirts right now.

Head to the Beach

Even though itís not really that cold, itís still likely too cold to swim at the beach. But that doesnít mean you canít still enjoy the sand and the surf. Build a giant bonfire with friends and bring along some hot dogs, marshmallows and ghost stories. Sit on blankets, cuddle in sweatshirts you donít really need and enjoy the time together with friends. This is a fun activity to do as a family as well if youíre looking for a bit of family bonding.

Start a Garden

The winter is a great time to start clearing land for a garden. To make a pretty flower or herb garden, youíll need to properly clear the soil and prepare it. Doing this over the winter break gives you something to do with all that spare time, an opportunity to enjoy the cooler weather and when spring break rolls around, youíll be ready to start planting your very own vegetables or rose bushes.

Shop, Shop, Shop

Snow, rain or sunshine Ė the shops are open and ready for your Christmas dollars. Sales and discounts get even deeper as you get closer to New Years and if youíre lucky enough to live in a place that has pretty mild seasons, you can buy hugely discounted items and then wear them year-round in many cases. Short-sleeves and a sweatshirt are great in the winter and simply ditch the sweatshirt in the spring. Invest your money wisely as youíll be able to get a lot of wear out of your new items.

Play Outside

If itís not snowing or icy where you live right now, there is a strong likelihood that itís blazingly hot in the summertime. That means you should take advantage of the colder weather while you have it to take hikes through the woods, explore nature trails in your areas or build your own tree house. You can organize a game of football or softball with friends itching for something to do and the best part of all is that you might not even break a sweat the whole time youíre playing!

Go Caroling

As far as Iím concerned, one of the best Christmas traditions doesnít require a cold snap or anything that remotely resembles winter. Take your friends, practice a few Christmas songs and then take your act on the road. Stop at friendsí and neighborsí houses to sing songs to them and enjoy some Christmas treats as well as the fun of surprising everyone with the gift of song. Unless youíve tried caroling in the past, you have no idea how much fun it can be Ė get as big a group together as possible and walk around a neighborhood. This is great for big groups of friends or youth groups or just with your (loud) BFF.

It snowed for like, 3 days here, practically non-stop. -.-

Atleast I don't have to shovel, I get to stay inside by the fire. ^.-

I'd still LOVE to be able to go someplace warm and hit a beach though..

Man I WISH I was where it was warm. But cold or hot I'd be shopping so my agenda wouldn't change, but my attitude would!

Um... Warm isn't what I'd call it...

Take a ruler and measure how high the top of your computer monitor is from your desk surface. That's about how much snow we had today.

And then I was stuck shoveling the driveway! I'm now aching all over and I have a crazy headache from the cold.
