Well, you are already possibly dreading the all too long visit from a couple of relatives over this long holiday break of a weekend. Your younger brother is in town with his new girl, your MIL is "not feeling well" AGAIN and you just don't know what to make of it all. Once you eat and get all full and fat, get out of the house the next day or two and breeeeeeathe.

 

Note: These are not in any particular order, just a great list to check out and consider each one that is best for your family and most are full of excercise to get you back on your feet. 

 

  • Holiday on Ice, located on the Nascar Hall of Fame plaza. Try it!
  •  
  • Uptown Ritz-Carlton gingerbread house decorating in the lobby. Think Gingerbread Gigantic Mansion House
  •  
  • Charlotte Christmas Market - Stocking stuffers galore!
