Holiday Bucket List

As December begins, it’s easy to get caught up in the frenzy of the holiday season. Presents to buy, packages to ship, parties to attend…it takes a real effort to slow down and enjoy the littles details that come along with this wonderful holiday of ours.  I took a few minutes today to write down the activities that are really important for me to share with my kids.  When I think back to my own Christmas as a child, it wasn’t the presents I remember best, (although there was that really awesome My Little Pony Castle one year) but the small moments of togetherness that warms my heart. Favorite stories like the Santa Mouse, and making buckeye balls with my mom and sister, are the moments I cherish. In no particular order, here are the things I want to accomplish this holiday season with my family. In the comments, I would love to hear what you have on your list.

    This is a fantastic idea! Its so easy to get caught up in the craziness of gift -buying and obligations that you forget about what’s really important during the holidays. Thanks for the reminder 🙂

      There is also a great gingerbread cookie recipe on Simple Bites today that looks delicious. I may make some now and freeze it so I’m ready in the coming weeks.

    What a great idea! We don’t celebrate Christmas, but I’m going to use this idea for our holiday next time, because I always feel so unprepared and never get around to doing anything!

    I really like this idea! Hanukkah starts on Saturday night, and I just realized I want to fit in sugar cookies somewhere in the next week. It would be interesting to do this annually and see how it grows!

    These are all great ideas and things that i normally actually check off my list this time of year with my kids. This year I will be lucky to get any of it done with this move. The joys of moving. Have a wonderful Christmas!

    Love this list! My kids are much older (and we celebrate Christmas and Chanukah) so we can involve them in things like Mitzvah Day through Hebrew Senior Life or a local holiday food drive. Still at the top of the list is the gingerbread house and cookie baking! Great message, I needed the refocus!

    Modern day London is a huge metropolis with everything on offer from history
    to cutting edge modernity as well as a vast selection of places to stay including the numerous grand plaza apartments London offers.
    Walk the mile between Camden Town and Chalk Farm
    Underground stations, and you can stop, and shop in all
    the markets of Camden. , in North London you
    can consider areas like Camden, Highgate, Hampstead,
    etc. A large number of people entertain the dream of being able to live in the country and work in the city.
