Whoever said Christmas is the most wonderful time of the year wasn’t wrong! Celebrating Christmas is one of the most loved holidays of all time. If you’re spending the holidays in Jordan this year, we’re here to help you look forward for some fun and memorable events and activities you can enjoy, whether you’re at home, with your family, or out with your friends!
If you’re spending Christmas at home
If you’re cozying up at home during the holidays, grab yourself a hot cup of hot chocolate, add some marshmallows, pick a comfy spot on the sofa, and watch a Christmas movie like Home Alone, A Christmas Story or Last Christmas with your family! If you’re feeling more productive, grab your utensils and your aprons and cook some Christmas cookies together. You could also spice things up with a fun board game like monopoly or challenge your friends or family to see who’s the best at Jenga!
Join Jordan’s Christmas activities
There are tons of activities happening in the streets of Jordan! From parties to markets, there’s everything you can imagine and more. If you’re looking for a fun day out with your kids and family, then head over to the Children’s Museum to enjoy some storytelling, Christmas carols, fun games, and have your kids decorate the giant tree! If you’re spending a night out with your friends, you can always go to a Christmas party like the Spotlight Guest Party hosted by Fred Astaire Dance Studios.
Speaking of dance, you can also attend some of the free ballet and bachata dance classes, offered by Roberto Dance Academy exclusively during this time of year. You can also visit the Christmas markets in Jordan and not only enjoy the good food that’s there, but also check out the vibrant arts and crafts displays that are available.
Drawing smiles on people’s faces
Christmas is all about the magic of giving. Why not draw a smile on the precious faces of kids and the elderly by spending the holiday with them. Pick a day, gather your family, buy some gifts and some homemade goods and head on over to a local Jordanian nursing home or orphanage. There’s nothing more beautiful than spending Christmas all together and sharing stories with one another!
If you still haven’t found the perfect Christmas present yet, don’t worry, we’ve got lots of ideas for you! Why not make your way to an art store and get a nice print in a frame? A thoughtful quote or a colorful art piece will definitely help you leave a mark. You can also gift a nice scented candle with your favorite aroma. Pine, vanilla, rose, whatever it may be, you’re sure to find them anywhere!
If you’re looking for a fancier present, why not opt for some AirPods? The new AirPods pro with their unique noise cancellation feature sure are attractive and most probably will be one of the best gifts ever! You can also get a wireless charging pad that they can use for their phones and AirPods.
There are plenty of things to do during the final days of 2019 in Jordan, and plenty of ways to make the holiday special. Whether you’re with your family or your friends, out in Jordan or in the comfort of your own home. Don’t miss out on anything and enjoy the holidays to the fullest!
From all of us here at Umniah, we wish you a Merry Christmas and a Happy New Year!
