While this year has brought its challenges, there are certainly matters to celebrate — and the holiday season is the perfect time to focus on the joy, health and happiness in our lives. Even though social distancing may be the norm, there are ways for you to take part in the holiday spirit and celebrate safely. At The Oaks at Denville, we’ve pulled together a list of some of the ways you are able to enjoy the holidays in Denville.

Activities to Help You Enjoy the Holidays

Shop in Downtown Denville. If you’re looking for gifts for family, friends and loved ones, downtown Denville offers local boutiques and shops that could have the perfect item you’re looking for. And, in light of community safety, many stores are offering private after-hours shopping, local delivery, outside pick up and more this holiday season.

Enjoy a Holiday Movie Marathon. Many families host a traditional movie night dedicated to curling up on the couch with a hot beverage and enjoy some of the many seasonal movies and shows offered at this time of year. Whether your favorite movie is A Christmas Story, Frosty the Snowman or even National Lampoon’s Christmas Vacation, be sure to set some time aside this holiday season to relax and watch your favorite seasonal film.

Bake Seasonal Goods. It’s the time of the year for tasty treats! Whether you’re a novice baker or consider baking one of your greatest hobbies, the cold winter months are the perfect time to warm up in the kitchen and whip up delicious baked goods. For inspiration, check out delish’s gallery of holiday desserts.

Create Holiday Cards. Craft your own holiday cards to put a smile on someone’s face with season’s greetings. It feels special to receive mail, and now is the perfect time to explore your artistic side and create holiday cards to send to family, friends or even strangers.

Buy Your Christmas Tree. Christmas trees are frequently the centerpiece of traditional end-of-year decorations, filled with ornaments and garlands evoking the holiday spirit. While you’re purchasing your tree this year, why not give back to the community? The Ayres/ Knuth Farm Foundation fundraiser offers trees, wreaths, firewood, farm produce and more for purchase. And the proceeds are dedicated to the preservation of this local historical landmark.

Take a Drive to View Holiday Lights. Explore your local community by taking a drive to view your neighbors’ holiday lights. Turn on your favorite holiday radio station and simply cruise around to admire the stunning displays in Denville.
