A wonderful blogger wrote that she wasn’t feeling the Christmas spirit and had decided to make a to do list to get herself in a Christmas mood. I realized, since I haven’t been very “Christmasy” for several years a Christmas to do list was a great idea to get back in the swing of things!
Today is our village’s annual Christmas hoopla. It’s called Christmas in the Ville and there are activities all day followed by our lighted nighttime parade.
A little of the old-fashioned with a little of the modern
The hot air balloonists light the night before going on to the balloon glow.
The Village tree arrives drawn by a team of gorgeous draft horses.
In addition to attending Christmas in the Ville there are some things I really want to do this season.
Red denotes something I’ve accomplished.
Sit outside while it snows drinking hot chocolate.
Drive around looking at the Christmas lights on houses.
Go to the Christmas lights display at the park (this is a drive-thru experience).
Have another family game night. We do these anyway but any excuse to get everyone together is fine with me!
Bake for family and friends. I have a confession to make. Mr. C got me a Kitchenaid stand mixer for Christmas and it came today. Now I can’t wait to start using it to make wonderful treats for everyone!
Pull out all my old Christmas decorations and make this basement look like a Christmas wonderland!
Watch at least 2 Christmas movies a week (even if some are those cheesy romantic Hallmark movies).
Spend an afternoon wrapping gifts for my family and friends.
Spend a day delivering gifts to the people I won’t see on Christmas Day.
Go to church for the evening special Christmas service.
Do you have a Christmas to do list? What’s on yours?
