What are empty nesters to do when the holidays roll around and the children have moved out of state or have their own plans for the day you should spend some time in the hot tub and kick back and relax. Why not!

No matter which area of the country you live in, spending time in a hot tub can be a great way to while away the hours. If you live in the snowy areas of the country, you may need to shovel a path to the hot tub, but Arizona hot tub owners don’t have that issue, they can just walk from the house to the hot tub and while away some holiday hours.

Holiday hot tub fun

  1. Make certain the hot tub water is cleaned and sanitized. If you work with a pool service contractor, call him and give him plenty of notice that you would like to use the hot tub and that you’d like it serviced.
  2. If you live where it’s snowy, get the shovel out and clear a path to the hot tub.
  3. Sink into the heated, jetted depths and sip a glass of wine and relax for a few minutes. Amp up the luxury in the hot tub by having heated towels, wrapping up in them and spending time in the outdoor living space. Start a fire. Wrap up in oversized, heated robes and kick back and relax with some appetizers and a bit more wine — or hot cocoa with a nip of Bailey’s Irish Cream and a dollop of whipped cream. Indulge with a shrimp cocktail, cheese, crackers and a selection of your favorite fruits and deli meats.
  4. If the fun extends into the evening hours, you will want to start a fire in the outdoor fire pit or make certain you have outdoor heaters to keep you warm as you celebrate.
  5. Don’t forget to decorate with holiday themed tablecloths, plates and even add a lighted Christmas tree, snowman or reindeer. Burn some holiday scented candles — peppermint, cinnamon, pine or your other seasonal favorites.

Spend a relaxing day in th ehot tub and your outdoor living space and start a new tradition.
