Christmas Check List

As many of you know, I absolutely LOVE Christmas. It is my favorite time of the year, and this year, I started to get excited in July {yep, you read that right}. We kick off our family festivities the day after Thanksgiving, and until December 26, I am yelling “MERRY CHRISTMAS” every ten minutes {okay, maybe not that often}. Since I’ve been out of high school, I’ve noticed that the holiday season files by so fast, and before I know it’s a new year! So, in the past several years, we’ve added more traditions and holiday festivities to make the most of the four-to-five week of Christmas celebrations.

Things to do this Christmas Season:

  1. Put up your tree {it’s a given, but you gotta do it!}

  2. Watch a Christmas Classic {See my favorite Christmas movies, here}

  3. Play a Game {We love: Ticket to Ride, Codenames, Catan, + Phase 10}

  4. Listen to Christmas Music {See my favorite Christmas albums, here}

  5. Bake some Christmas cookies or treats

  6. Wear fuzzy Christmas socks

  7. Attend a Christmas Service

  8. Support a local charity

  9. Make some homemade hot chocolate {Add peppermint sticks for extra goodness}

  10. Go see Christmas lights {cheap date night!}

  11. Take a group of friends Christmas caroling

  12. Snag some sales Black Friday or Cyber Monday shopping

  13. Lord willing, Have a snowball fight

  14. Read the Christmas Story

  15. If you’re in St. Louis, Visit Harvest Christian Church’s Journey to Bethlehem

  16. Decorate a Gingerbread House

  17. Buy a Starbucks holiday drink

  18. Test your balance and go ice skating

  19. Drink a glass Coke by the Christmas tree {technically not a Christmas thing, but it’s cute…so we’re going with it!}

  20. Get cozy in Christmas PJs!

  21. Wrap Christmas presents

  22. Attend an ugly Christmas sweater party

  23. Marathon cheesy Christmas movies

  24. Donate to a family in need

  25. Send out a Christmas card

Hopefully, this will help you get a good start to your holiday fun! I hope and pray you and your family are able to enjoy this incredible time of the year. Hayden and I are looking forward to slowing down and spending more time with each other and family.

xoxo,
