Christmas Countdown

If you read my last post then you know I’m trying to cram as much celebration as I can into a short month for every holiday this year. It is barely December, but I know that this month will be gone in the blink of an eye. Even though Josie will hardly remember her first Christmas, I am determined to make the memories anyway! Whether you have a baby to celebrate the holiday with or just yourself, here is a fun list of ideas you can do each day of December to celebrate Christmas!

Another great idea that I’m incorporating this year for myself is to read one chapter of Luke each day. There are 24 chapters in the book, each telling a story of Jesus’ life here on Earth. What a better way to celebrate His coming than to read about His miracles all month long!

  1. Decorate a Christmas tree
  2. Look at Christmas lights
  3. Make homemade hot chocolate
  4. Watch a Christmas movie
  5. Wrap presents
  6. Attend a lighted Christmas parade
  7. Picture with Santa
  8. Write Christmas cards
  9. Make homemade ornaments
  10. Get matching Christmas pajamas
  11. Make homemade eggnog
  12. Buy a gift for a Christmas tree angel
  13. Take family photos
  14. Make fake snow
  15. Sing Christmas carols
  16. Set up a nativity set
  17. Make a Jesse tree
  18. Read a Christmas story
  19. Start an Advent calendar
  20. Bake and cutout cookies
  21. Decorate a gingerbread house
  22. Write a letter to Santa
  23. Make a holiday breakfast
  24. Decorate a tree for baby
  25. Read the true story of Christmas

Let me know if you do any of these this season, or if you have a fun tradition to add!
