Bring the family together by baking cookies. Not only will it fill the home with a scrumptious aroma, it’s a fun activity that can involve everyone. Let kids get creative and decorate their own batch. In the spirt of giving, make some extras to share with friends, neighbors, teachers, coworkers and more.

<strong>2. Sing carols.</strong>

Carol from the comfort of home. To experience a sense of community, organize an at-home holiday sing-along. An elegant, compact digital piano such as Casio’s <a href=”http://www.casiomusicgear.com/products/privia-series/px-770″ rel=”nofollow”>Privia PX-770</a> is great for this seasonal tradition. Record your performances for posterity using its two-track MIDI recorder.
