5 Things You Should Definitely Do This Thanksgiving Break

You’ve finally got a few free days for fall fun after a long semester. Here are five things that should totally be on your Thanksgiving Break Bucket List!


1. Get with your friends to tune into the Saints & Strangers two-night movie event on the National Geographic Channel, beginning November 22! This is the story that goes beyond the familiar historical account of Thanksgiving and takes us into the religious separatists who abandoned their prior lives for a single cause: religious freedom. You don’t want to miss it. So mark your calendar!

We’ve also got this super exclusive faith-based study guide you can use to follow with your small group, youth group or homeschool group! Grab the guide HERE!

2. Make caramel apples! Not only are they amazingly delicious, but you can totally make them while tuning into Saints & Strangers. Yes, I just planned your entire night. Thank me later. Find this recipe here!



3. Get lost in a book. Yes, now is the time to find a book you love and get lost in it for hours. Find your favorite cardigan and blanket, make some hot chocolate and really do the holidays right! (Here are 10 amazingly delicious hot chocolate recipes to try this season!)

Also, don’t forget that Nicole’s book, Project Inspired: Tips and Tricks for Staying True to Who You Are, is now on sale at Amazon! Get yours here!

4. Have a backyard bonfire with s’mores, or gather around the fireplace. Seriously, could anything be more perfect? Make it a girls’ night!



5. Volunteer! This is the season of giving, of course! Whether it’s donating canned goods and warm clothes or serving at your local shelter, consider taking up a volunteer opportunity. This also makes for a great group service or winter date!

    A comment on number five: Please, if you want to volunteer, do it some other time. Around the holidays, everyone gets an overdose of good cheer. The homeless shelters and food pantries get flooded with volunteers, pies, and cookies. Yes, technically you’re helping, but the people you’re helping know that the day after Christmas, no one will care anymore and things will be back to normal. If you want to make a difference and make people feel like you actually care, go in at a random time when you aren’t feeling festive — and make a habit of it. Volunteer once a month or something. (BTW — I volunteer weekly at the local shelter, so I’m not totally talking through my hat.)
