Christmas can go by so fast and before we know it we haven’t made time for many fun Christmas activities. Creating a Christmas bucket list is a great way to make sure you enjoy Christmas.
There are so many fun Christmas activities and often we don’t make time for them. We think “oh I’d like to do (blank) this Christmas” but we don’t make it happen.
This is one of the main reasons I like to plan ahead for Christmas. There are so many fun things I want to do and I don’t want the less fun things to get in the way of that. I want as much time for Christmas fun as possible!
One thing that I like to do is create a Christmas bucket list and stick it in my Christmas planner or on the fridge. It’s fun to sit down one night with my husband and decide on all the fun things we want to do that year.
It’s a great way to connect and start thinking about the holiday season. It’s something you can do with the whole family.
We don’t always do all of them but having the list helps us try to fit in what we can. We don’t want to cram in so much we don’t enjoy it but we also do want to celebrate Christmas as much as we can.
You can make your own Christmas bucket list or if you get my Christmas Planner a Christmas bucket list is included and ready for you to fill out.
Read this list and decide which things you want to try and do this year. You never know, some of these activities may become Christmas traditions.
