Hallowe’en is over (WAHOO!) and now I can go full-on with Christmas!
love adore Christmas. I even went so far as to give one of the girls the middle name “Noelle” (french for Christmas).
It’s not the religious aspects or the gifts – it’s the feeling of warmth and togetherness that it brings. Decorations come out to make the home cozy and welcoming, baking goes into overdrive to make sure tummies are full and the kids dance around the house with anticipation every day. To be honest – I don’t particularly love Christmas Eve/Day/Boxing Day themselves – it’s the lead up that gets me giddy.
SO, and to that end, there are a million things to do before the Holidays arrive – so I thought I’d share a printable Christmas checklist to help get you organized. No use leaving everything ’til the last minute and then rushing through the Holidays with anxiety instead of joy. This will help spread things out into bite-sized portions.
Yup, there are 100 things 2 do on here:
Things like “confirming mailing addresses”, “paring down toys” etc. can be done even earlier, but with Thanksgiving taking centre stage in November I didn’t want to fill your plate too early.
Items listed under “Christmas Eve” are for you and your family – no more chores, or running around – it’s about creating special moments and treasured memories with your family which really is the point of all of the build-up.
This 100 Things 2 Do before Christmas checklist came together in about an hour, so I feel fairly confident that it’s not comprehensive (it was too easy) – there are probably other items you’ll need to add, but it’s a great starting point.
You know I’m a sucker for tick boxes, so this will keep me organized (and gratified) whenever I check off another to-do. Go ME!
Print, share, forward, pin – everyone could use a little help over the Holidays.
Did I mention that I love Christmas? (I think I love Christmas checklists almost as much.)
Have a great one!
