Fortunately there’s still time to cram a few more fun family outings in before 2020 arrives. Read on for some reasons why you should make time for family fun despite the holiday hustle and bustle, and check out our upcoming December events in Tallahassee

Stuff is temporary; memories are forever

Everyone loves a good present, but don’t get so caught up in the hectic holiday grind that you forget to enjoy the very people you’re shopping for. Adults and kids alike can get stressed out during the holidays, so making time for physical activity and free-range fun is crucial. Roller skating is a great way to balance out one-too-many cookies or cocktails at the office holiday party, and because it’s a good aerobic workout, it also relieves stress. 

Keep in mind that this year’s coolest toy or hottest tech gizmo will lose its luster, but the memories you make with your kids, partner, siblings, parents, friends, and neighbors last forever. In fact, science even backs this up; according to researchers, people who spend money on experiences rather than material objects report feeling happier and more fulfilled.
