Classic Comfort Foods and Activity Ideas for a Cozy Night In

Classic Comfort Foods and Activity Ideas for a Cozy Night In

Now that the weather is cool, and we’ve officially traded our swimsuits for sweaters, you may find yourself wanting more and more cozy nights in. And what’s a night in without some classic comfort foods and holiday fun?!

Here are 4 activities to keep the fun going through the winter season:

  1. Snuggle up with a holiday movie night. A classic activity that’s always a great time, setting up a movie night with your family or roommates (or just watching one by yourself) is the perfect way to get into the holiday spirit while staying cozy. Here’s a list of the top holiday movies to get you started!
  2. Take a virtual tour through some spectacular holiday light displays. Going on holiday light tours is a tradition for many families. If you don’t feel comfortable going out and about, you can still feel all of the festive vibes from the comfort of your own home. Christmas Designers will take you on a virtual tour through 21 displays of dazzling lights starting right here in Texas. There are also some creative drive-thru light displays in the Austin and San Antonio area that you can enjoy while practicing social distancing.
  3. Get crafty with Pinterest. Pinterest is a one-stop-shop for all things crafty. Whether you’d like to try your hand at making a seasonal candle or perhaps a beautiful do-it-yourself wreath, you can find fun ideas for the whole family. We’ve put together a board to share some of our favorite crafts for the winter season.
  4. Get festive with a hot cocoa bar. It’s the perfect time of the year to cozy up with a warm drink and a hot cocoa bar is a perfect way to turn this tasty treat into a super-special activity. Stock up on all your favorite toppings: marshmallows, sprinkles, whipped cream, chocolate shavings, mini chocolate chips, or whatever else your mind can dream up and pair it with a winter movie for an all-around good time.

And, of course, everything is better with some warm, delicious comfort food. Whether you’re planning a small group get together or looking forward to some solo downtime, Smokey Mo’s has got you covered!
