Making Christmas both meaningful and memorable doesn’t take much. Here are some of the things that your family can try for a truly enjoyable bonding activity:
Go on a road trip Take the family on a road trip to a cold location like Baguio. Instead of the usual straight drive, plan on making pit stops to other destinations like the Manaoag Church or have a sample of the waves of La Union. Don’t worry about deviating a bit from the normal route, the chilly breeze and smell of pine trees will be a more welcome treat after a fun and/or adventurous road trip. Make sure nobody skips a meal enroute to your destination by getting hot, freshly prepared and delicious meals like Yumburger, Crunchy Chicken Burger or Jolly Hotdog from Jollibee Drive-Thru stores along the way.
Go bargain hunting Giving gifts to loved ones should not be so hard on the pocket. Spur everybody’s creativity and negotiation skills by scouring the city’s best bargain havens together and hunting for great cheap finds or crafts that you can turn into personalized gift items or Christmas decors. Afterwards, reunite and exchange bargaining tips and fun stories over a hearty lunch of Chickenjoy bucket or Grilled Pork Tenders rice meals with favorite sides like Creamy Macaroni Soup or Jolly Crispy Fries. And why not reward yourselves with sweet and delightfully satisfying desserts like Jollibee’s Choco Cookie Crumble or the Strawberry Sundae to cap the meal?
Sing your heart out Spread some cheer around the neighborhood by organizing a family carolling. Rehearse your favorite Christmas songs together and bring out the maracas and tambourines. If you’re feeling a bit creative and resourceful, you can also turn those empty plastic bottles and tin cans into musical instruments. After singing and bringing good vibes from one house to another, have a midnight snack at your veranda and order your favorite Jollibee snacks like the Hash Brown Burger or Chicken Nugget Crunchers. Too tired to drive? No sweat as ordering these treats are just a phone call (8-7000 Jollibee delivery hotline) or a click (www.jollibeedelivery.com) away.
Share your blessings Make this Christmas even more memorable for the entire family by working together to share your blessings with others. Encourage the kids to set aside their old clothes and toys or organize your own family’s book or toy donation drive in the community. Or better yet, take part in Jollibee’s Maaga ang Pasko program and be a family of Jolly Toy Scouts. After dropping off your toys and books one Sunday morning at your favorite Jollibee store, you can continue the day on a great note by savoring any of the great-tasting Jollibee Breakfast Joys.
Consider these tips and you’re on your way to creating even more memorable bonding moments that your family will surely cherish now and the next Christmases to come.
