Winter is such a cold and blah time. But here in the Upper Midwest we try to make the best of things. While there are a lot of indoor activities, there are also a lot of outdoor festivals and events. We have broom ball tournaments on frozen lakes, ice fishing, skiing, snow tubing, snowmobiling, ice skating, nighttime snowshoeing, ice carving, skating races, cross country ski races, dog sledding, bonfires, sleigh rides, curling and so much more.
Some more hygge activities you can try yourself include: building a snowman, go on a nighttime candlelight carriage ride, drink warm apple cider in front of a fireplace, binge watch Christmas films, make gourmet hot coco, have a fire in the fireplace and read by its light, toast marshmallows in your fireplace, go sledding, go look at homes that have their holiday lights up, take in a Christmas play, bake cookies, donate to your favorite charity or volunteer your time, make a ginger bread house, or write a letter by candlelight.
