The holiday season is approaching, but you have no idea what to do with all the free time on your hands? As a teenager, you probably dont have access to different means of transportation such as a car, or a bike and this will make any travelling plans you may have harder. And anyway if you do have a bike, it will probably be too cold to use! So what are your options for Christmas? 

First of all, you should spend the days that your parents are not working doing something with them. This might seem boring, but I can assure you'll miss them once you move out, and what you might take for granted now will become precious to you later, so dont let the chance slip! Why not try doing something different with your parents, not the usual film watching or game playing? Try and do opt for something more entertaining or exciting, such as skating, skiing or snowboarding or any other fun winter activities. After all, even parents enjoy these more active forms of entertainment, youll find you can enjoy these activities even with the older generation.

Cooking together is also lots of fun, you might be able to pick some good tips for when you have to do the cooking for yourself. Think about cooking some fun treats with your parents. You could make your own chocolate, make some Christmas biscuits or other tasty treats. 

Now that youve spent some time with the family, you can also go out and explore some other entertaining pastimes. You have a lot of choices. If you're looking for other fun things, try to get outside and do all of those fun winter activities like skiing, skating, snowboarding and sledding with friends. If you're far from mountains or snow, get out anyway and enjoy the free time you have. You can of course relax at home by the fire and enjoy a good book, you never have time for at school. There are plenty of Christmas concerts and plays you can go to with your family or friends. Parties are also plentiful during the holiday seasons. Try and fully appreciate the festive mood, it is really important to take a good break from work and prepare for the New Year.

Why not try and be creative, if youre not in the mood to lay back. Make something with your hands, either by drawing, creating or even writing short stories, if you enjoy writing. Let your imagination run free, take a break and fully enjoy what your environment offers.
