100 Things 2 Do Before Christmas Checklist

It’s TIME!

Hallowe’en is over (WAHOO!) and now I can go full-on with Christmas!

I 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:

Christmas Checklist - 100 Things 2 Do leading up to the Holidays

Christmas Checklist – 100 Things 2 Do leading up to the Holidays

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!

      This is my checklist, so as much as it seems crazy to do 100 Things – you’ll probably do far more without even blinking an eye! Thanks for taking the time to comment.

    I love lists. You might think I’m crazy but I start planning for Christmas in January!! Every year my goal is to have the bulk of gifts done by Halloween along with a few batches of cookie dough in the freezer. I never quite make it but I just might this year. I love that you put the memory making things on the list. They are on mine too. A must for us is a service project & light display with the grandkids.

      I love the idea of having pre-made cookie dough in the freezer! Brilliant! I’ll have to update my list to include your fantastic ideas – thanks so much for sharing!

    Is it possible to get this without the background color? I can’t get it to print so I can see the words very well unless I use a lot of color ink. Hoping to print in Black and White.

    Thanks for the list. Love it.

      I’m sorry Lisa, this is a designed piece and I can’t remove the colour from the background. The black & white setting on your printer still had the text too dark? I’ll play with it and see if I can get a new version created for next year. Thanks for letting me know.

    I really don’t agree with one of your sentences…. Christmas is entirely a religious celebration not just the warm feelings. Christ was born to us…Not Santa Claus, not presents, not all the human activities. These are all fun to enjoy but Christmas is all about Christ.

      Fair enough – Christmas started as a celebration of Christ’s birth.
      I do not come from a religious family so I celebrate Christmas as the commercialized holiday it has grown to become. To each his own right?
