One Busy, but Happy Little Christmas To-Do List


Each and every year we have something in common, and each year, its daunting presence overwhelms us. Of course, we speak of one things that is a Christmas to-do list. If I were to go back in my archives, I suspect I’d find similar posts to this because every year I seem to put something like this together. It’s fair to say, we all have a list such as this. Sometimes it may just be a mental list, other times it may be an actual list, either way, one of THE best things about a to-do list is that we can cross things off.

We can all admit it here, that list can be quite long… and it has a knack for overwhelming the best of us. But, in this joyful season (of fun, twinkle lights family and giving), we should also remember that said to-do lists can be fun and festive – and we should work to make them precisely so.

Today, I thought I’d share my to-do list, and give you a peek into what I’ve yet to accomplish and what I already have (the ratio of which lends itself to more work over completed tasks).

    1. I *almost* skipped out on Christmas cards, and really should have. It’s one of those things I’ve toyed with giving up for the last 2-3 years, and haven’t yet. Definitely a Christmas tradition that’s no longer a “thing” in our society, but it’s for sure a lot of work. :) Hope you accomplish all of your Christmas to-do list goals, Heidi. :)
