Have a cozy night in: Five ideas

It's getting darker earlier these days so there's less to do outside. But fall is a perfect time to regroup and enjoy the warmth of your home at night. Here are five fun plans for the cooler nights in:

Have a wine and cheese party. Grab some different cheeses and wines and have some (21 year-old+) friends over for a tasting! Research wines and cheese to pair or have everyone bring their own combination.

Sweeten up the night. Try some new recipes and bake some cookies or desserts. This will not only be a lot of fun, especially if you decorate, but also you can give desserts in a tin as a gift during the holidays.

Have a movie marathon. Don't you have movies that just remind you of fall or winter or the holidays? Plan a family night in for a movie marathon. Grab all the classics or add some new ones to your list. Pop some popcorn and enjoy a cozy family night. Share your favorite fall or winter movies in the comments. We love National Lampoon's Christmas Vacation and Love Actually.

Have a game night. Grab all of your favorite board games, from Trivial Pursuit to Life and enjoy a night of games and laughing. You can also enjoy some card games like euchre or Uno! Games are a great way to enjoy each other's company.

Have a cook-off. Whether you split into teams and battle it out for the best dish or have a traditional cook-off where you choose the best of many entries (like chili or dessert), having a cooking contest is a great way to feed the group and have some fun!

What are your favorite things to do in the fall when it's too cold to hang outside?
