31 Things to do before Christmas – Enjoy the traditions

(This is #28 of 31 in the 31 Things to do series)

Take time for Traditions

Make sure you spend some time just enjoying the season and the traditions that go along with it. Some people really believe "It's the most wonderful time of the year" and they act as such. But for some of us it can become drudgery with all of the busy-ness, too much to do, a lot of wants and needs but not enough money.

I can tell you, some people are definitely dreading Christmas this year. Hundreds of thousands of people have lost their jobs, nest eggs and homes this year. It's definitely going to be a slim Christmas for many people. But even when money is tight, thankfully we still have a lot to be thankful for and there is plenty to celebrate and enjoy during the holidays. And whether you are blessed with abundance or not this Christmas, I hope you and yours will take the time to enjoy some of the traditional holiday activities this season which money can't buy.

Here are some Christmas-y things you should do this year to get and keep you in the holiday spirit:
  1. Bake Christmas cookies

  2. Build a fire and have hot chocolate

  3. Sing Christmas carols

  4. Watch Christmas movies

  5. Go see Christmas lights on Christmas Eve

  6. Spend lots of quality time with love ones!
