- Detroit Vs. Green Bay

7. Turkey Trail Trot
Turkey Trail Trot gives a chance to burn off some calories before you consume them, but you’d better register early – they sometimes fill up. Or wait until after the big meal and do the Sunday Run Wild for a Child where runners dress as a favorite childhood toy.

Hit up the Christmas tree lighting in San Francisco’s Union Square.
Volunteer in your community.
4. Reconnect With Hometown Friends
