Just before Thanksgiving each year, our family prints out the following Christmas countdown calendar and posts it on our bulletin board. On it are all the different activities and events we’ve enjoyed during Christmases past.
The children helped me generate the original countdown list years ago, and we continue to add to it as we discover new traditions we want to make a part of our family’s holiday celebrations.
The list reminds us to enjoy small, simple pleasures, as these are the things that make this time of year so memorable for our little ones. We don’t try to do everything on our bucket list — that’s not the point — we just pick and choose those activities that appeal to us or fit our schedules this year.
Try making a “Countdown to Christmas” with your own family this year. You can use our list or compile one of your own!
