How nice would it be if you and your (babysitting) kids brighten up their holiday season? Deliver a Christmas card to the letterbox of a care or retirement home. Write a poem or rhyme, and make their holiday that much more special when they receive your home-made card.

This can, of course, be a photo of a beautiful memory, but it can also be great fun to take a true Christmas picture with the whole family.

Wear a nice Christmas outfit, a Christmas sweater, or a Santa hat. Put your phone on a timer and come up with a nice setup. Ready? 3-2-1, say: Merry Christmas!
