November through January is a busy time of year, it’s the holiday season! With holiday cheer and love in the air, what better to do than spend time with family and friends? Most families have traditions that they participate in each year, picking out ornaments, or chopping down a Christmas tree. When looking for something to do, it can be hard to find an activity at a reasonable price. These are three fun holiday activities that won’t break the bank.

  1. The Gingerbread Village at the Sheraton Hotel in Seattle. This year is it’s 25th anniversary, so the year’s theme is 25 Years of Cheer: A Celebration of Seattle. Architecture firms, master builders and Sheraton Seattle Culinary teams have made the city out of gingerbread, including the water front. The event is free, but donations go to Juvenile Diabetes Research Foundation.
