Things to do on December 25 that don’t involve Christmas

Not everyone celebrates Christmas. Not everyone celebrates it in the traditional ways. We thought we offer some ideas for those who do December 25 in their own way.

One of the most time-honored and popular ideas around is going to the movies. But what about adding a vintage twist to that and watching a movie from the year you were born. For some of us that means movies from 1950’s, 60’s or 70’s. Here are a few classics to get you started:


A Streetcar named Desire (1951)

Rebel Without a Cause (1955)

Some Like it Hot (1959)

Lawrence of Arabia (1962)

The Sound of Music (1965)

The Graduate (1967)

The Sting (1973)

One Flew Over the Cuckoo’s Nest (1975)

Star Wars (1977)

Spend the day cooking or baking for the week ahead. Here are a few vintage recipes that work well for packing leftovers.


Classic Tuna Casserole

Chicken Pot Pie


French Onion Dip

Best Brownies

2016 marks 100 years of the National Park Service. Spend the day visiting one of the many parks near you and learn something new about your hometown.

Volunteer with a local non-profit. Every city and town has at least one non-profit agency that can use a hand. Spend the day giving your time to those in need. Find a local non-profit at Volunteer Match

So whether you celebrate Christmas, Hannukah, Kwanza, something else or nothing at all we at Vintage Unscripted hope you have a wonderful day, whatever you do.

The best is yet to come! Pam, Vintage Renude
