Winter has finally arrived, and you know what that means. Here come the bucketlist to go with it...
You’ve seen the Christmas commercials, you’ve had your turkey at Thanksgiving. Winter has finally arrived, and you know what that means. Here come the movie marathons, the hot chocolate, gift-giving, and hoping for a white Christmas. There’s no reason to beat around the bush: snow is the best thing about winter. Hit the slopes, make a snow angel, have a snowball fight, or just sip on hot chocolate while you watch you watch the city turn white. For those who live somewhere that doesn’t get snow, don’t despair. There’s still fun to be had: plan a trip to New York for New Year’s Eve, drink some eggnog, kiss under mistletoe. Snow makes the day-to-days tangibly different, but even if you don’t get any, you can still live out of the ordinary for the season and get to work on your BucketList.
The BucketList crew has curated a list of our favorite winter goals so that you don’t have to. Upvote your favorites, comment on the list, and engage with other Buckaroos. Layer up and get to living. Winter is a time for adventure and sharing fun — it’d be a shame to waste it. Go out and make it happen.
Together we can fulfill each other's dreams
Build A Snow Man
You’re never too old to build a snowman. You may think you’re too old, and then you build another. A landmark of winter tradition, building a snowman is the perfect opportunity to bond with friends and family. Go all out - grab a hat, some carrots, a scarf, the works. Just have fun with it.
You’ve got two roads to choose from when you face a mountain of snow: snowboard, or ski. The latter is a worthy choice. Picture yourself weaving down the Alps, slicing through an alpine obstacle course. People don’t have enough thrills during the year as is. Don’t let winter go by without going skiing at least once.
Thrill seekers, rejoice. If building a snowman isn’t quite your pace, snowboarding might be what you’re looking for. Whether you’re an expert or an amateur, the adrenaline rush is the same. Fly down the mountainside. Push your limits and make memories.
Volunteer At A Soup Kitchen.
City dwellers will tell you, walking through the streets in the winter can be as beautiful as it is sad. If you’re reading this, you’re fortunate enough to have the opportunity to cross of goals from our Winter BucketLists, without worry for food or shelter. Many aren’t so lucky. Soup kitchens run on volunteers. They provide food for homeless, a bit of warmth in a season that can be so cold when you’re stuck outdoors. A few of hours of volunteering can make a tangible difference
Go To The Superbowl
You can’t spell February without football. Well, you can, but that’s not the point. Whether you’re a fan of America’s game or not, the sheer spectacle of a Super Bowl is enough to bring curious visitors from around the world. A restless season of vicious and hard-fought battles culminates in a cold February evening. Just one question: will you be there?
Help Someone Shovel Snow
Being a good neighbor isn’t reserved for wealthy suburbs or State Farm commercials. The best communities are built on giving. Before you go out and take advantage of the foot of the snow that just fell, realize that someone might really need your help shoveling their driveway. Build up your karma, and do some good.
Cuddle In Front Of A Fire Place
Unfortunately, you can’t have snow without cold. Just how it is. The cold can wear you down after a while. You’ve got to stay warm. That means drinking hot cocoa, bundling up in blankets, and, yes, cuddling in front of a fire place. Flames crackling on wood logs, the distant smell of smoke, the right person beside … you might end up wanting the moment to last forever.
