The First Snowfall, Pumpkin Spice, and 39 Other Things We Can Still Look Forward To in 2020
This has been an unpredictable year, but the best thing we can do is look ahead. The fall and winter hold a lot of key traditions, holidays, and activities that we hold dear to our hearts, and while some may look a little different, it doesn’t mean we can’t still have fun! Think of roasting marshmallows over a fire, turning on your favorite holiday music, or better yet, the feeling you get after the first snowfall. It’s the little things that get us excited for the seasons to come. Bookmark this list and refer to it on the days you’re feeling down, or better yet, print it out and hang it on your wall for inspiration. The year’s not over yet, so we might as well make the best of it! Here are all of the comforting things we can still look forward to in 2020.
