As you know, I have weddings on my mind, and I am struggling not to write about that once more. 🙂 This is, after all, the first time I’ve been a maid of honor, and I have so much planning to do. Not to mention the fact that I have some cute dresses to buy for the other weddings and showers I will be attending. But I am trying to hold back a bit for now, as there is a very big holiday coming up. And I haven’t really posted anything about it yet…
After all, as of today, we can officially begin singing ‘The Twelve Days of Christmas.’ Sigh. Why does this holiday season have to fly by so fast? I don’t know about you, but last night I felt a bit sad at the thought of everything I probably won’t have time to do before the holiday arrives. There just isn’t enough time. And it’s easy to feel the holiday blues as though you’re missing out… or even missing Christmas.
So I have put together a do-able list of everything I want to do before Christmas. As for the things I don’t have time to do or bake this Christmas, I’ll just save them for next year. 🙂 I think that to fully appreciate the Christmas season, you have to be reasonable and not try to cram too much in too little time. Remember, simple often is best!
(I was actually shocked at how short my list was. When I took the time to write down what I really want to do before Christmas this year, I found out that I really can fit everything in).
All I Want to Do before Christmas Is…
Bake Christmas cookies
Wrap Christmas gifts while listening to Christmas music
Make a Christmas craft
Drive around the neighborhood and look at Christmas lights (while sipping on hot chocolate and listening to Christmas music).
Watch a Christmas movie (or two)
Fill out my Christmas cards (with Christmas music or a Christmas movie playing in the background)
Make a couple of Christmas cookie plates and give them to the neighbors
What’s on your list?
