In the winter, it is easy to stay cooped up inside, hibernating until the first signs of Spring arrive. But with Hanover’s outdoor fire pits, all weather furniture, and cozy deep seating, you can still enjoy an outdoor gathering during the holidays.

Outdoor Activities and Holiday Traditions

While you may be stumped when it comes to outdoor activities in the wintery months, we’ve compiled a list of fun (and warm) outdoor activities that can become your new holiday traditions.

  1. Roasting Chestnuts: While most of us have heart the song by Nat King Cole, very few of us have ever actually roasted chestnuts on an open fire. With Hanover’s selection of fire pits and cozy all weather seating, you, your friends, and your family can start a new holiday tradition. If you’re unsure how to roast chestnuts, check out the directions here.

  1. Sparklers In the Snow: Why leave the fireworks to the Fourth of July, when sparklers look so gorgeous against a snowy backdrop. As you sit around your crackling fire pit, light the sparklers in the flames and watch as they create beautiful designs. Best of all, this is an activity that both kids and adults can enjoy.

  1. Gather Natural Gift Wrap: Pine cones, tree bark, twigs, and berries are perfect natural elements to add to your holiday gift wrapping and decorating. Gather these items and sit around your outdoor dinning table sorting them into piles. Once they’ve dried off, bring them inside for decorating, or even use them to adorn the outside of your house.

  1. Caroling: Who says you have to walk around to sing your favorite holiday songs. Gather your friends, a few cocktails, and some blankets and sit around your stunning fire pit while practicing your tunes.

  1. Make Snow Ice Cream: The promise of delicious ice cream is sure to get anyone to run outside. The weather conditions will ensure that your ice cream won’t melt until you are ready to eat it. Here is a tasty recipe for snow ice cream that the entire family will love.

Of course, you can always watch your kids make a snowman while you snuggle up with your significant other next to your cozy fire pit. Your neighbors will be sure to join you when they see your beautiful set up! With Hanover outdoor products, outdoor holiday gatherings have never been easier.
