With the year-end holidays just around the corner, and all the names crossed off your gift list, it’s time to embrace the magic of the season with the following year-end holiday bucket list. You’ll undoubtedly want to check each of these – including consulting a contractor about pool construction, especially if it’s at the top of your holiday wish list – before you ring in 2022.
Stream Holiday Classics
Local meteorologists are predicting rain and, for those in higher elevations, snow this weekend. That creates the perfect opportunity to steam some milk for hot chocolate, make bowls of buttery popcorn, and sit back to watch holiday classics, from the 1989 National Lampoon’s Christmas Vacation to the 1990 Home Alone. For added warmth, layout some cozy throws and oversized pillows as you prepare to laugh out loud to the hysterics of the Griswold or McCallister families this holiday season.
Warm Yourself in a Spa
After a day spent baking sweets and wrapping presents, last-minute holiday to-dos can cause some muscle aches, especially when those tasks are coupled with dropping temperatures. One of the best ways to find relief while finding warmth when it’s a chilly 60ºF out in the Valley is to soak in your backyard spa. Additional benefits of spa construction include opportunities for relaxation, on-demand massaging jets, and reducing stress during the holidays.
View Holiday Light Displays
At this time of year, there’s nothing more magical than viewing houses all aglow with twinkling lights, festive displays, and cheerful inflatables. Of course, you can still take in the wondrous views by driving through Valley neighborhoods like those listed in the ABC15 Holiday Lights Map for 2021. Some houses even add immersive touches like faux snow or holiday music. For added fun, especially if you’re driving from one community to another with the family, is to play a holiday trivia question game.
Enhance Your Backyard with a Pool
Before you ring in the New Year, ring Platinum Pools & Spas at (480) 888-9200 to discuss having them enhance your backyard with a custom-designed swimming pool, potentially integrated with an in-ground spa. The pool construction process takes about six months, making the wintertime an ideal time to invest in a backyard oasis complete with a beautiful pool designed and constructed by Platinum Pools & Spas. They can even help you finance it with low-rate financing options from HFS Financial.
Happy Holidays from Platinum Pools & Spas!
