If you're wondering what to do to "warm" those cold winter nights...why not try storytelling? Years ago, when many people lived in agricultural settings, winter was the time when chores slowed down and evenings were spent telling tales. Culture was passed down at times like these, and many children learned about values and family from these shared experiences in front of the fire on a frosty winter night. So...pop some corn, turn on the gas log, and try some old-fashioned entertainment with your family this January. You'll all wonder why you didn't think of turning off the TV long ago! Check into activities in your local area: storytelling may be offered in various venues and can spark your own (and your children's) creativity. It's a cozy way to spend time in the winter.
