The holidays mean different things to different people. Many celebrate with family and food, giving gifts and decorating with style. Some families take this as a time to reflect on religious meanings and some as a time to spend with family and friends. We buy trees of evergreen, light candles and sing songs. Everywhere you look you see sparkle, lights and people bustling with activity.
Here are some ideas on how to spend all your Yuletide energy.
