Christmas Activities

Has the following scenario ever happened to you? About a week before Christmas you realize that December 25th is quickly approaching and you are completely unprepared for it and (ahhhhh) it doesn't even feel like Christmas yet.

Well, this has happened to me and I can't stand it! I think the best way to keep Christmas from sneaking up on you is to start celebrating early. This year, Dave and I tried to buy all of our gifts in November so that we could focus on Christmas activities in December. We almost finished crossing everyone off our list and I only have a few more gifts to buy. We also came up with a list of fun things we want to do this year to keep that Christmas feeling going strong all month long (inspired by this).  Here is what we came up with:

Write and mail Christmas cards
Drink a peppermint latte from Starbucks
Visit Longwood Gardens with Dave's family
Trim the tree
Enjoy cocktails at the William Penn Inn
Bake cookies
Visit the Christkindlmarkt in Bethlehem
Drink eggnog
NYC daytrip
Attend cookie exchange
Watch as many Christmas movies as possible
Drive around town to look at lights
Drink hot cocoa

  1. Great list! I need to do some of these too. I'm mostly dreaming of NYC but not sure that it's going to happen before Christmas. I watched Home Alone already, which is a big part of the holidays for me, and I also want to watch Serendipity! I used to have a game called the North Pole Game--I wish I still had it to bring to Emily's!
