Christmas Bucket List

Hot on the tails of my Autumn Bucket List, I also thought I'd share the one I've created for Christmas. I adore Christmas and with Joshua being so much more aware this year it meant we could add even more to our list including visiting Father Christmas.

I like to keep my bucket lists filled with things that are easily accomplished be it big or small. They also give me the push to do a little more when all I want to do is hide from the cold with a blanket.

So here are a list of things I'm hoping to do with family and friends this Christmas, I'd love to know what you have planned too. 

  1. Drink hot chocolate with cream and marshmallows 
  2. Bake Christmas treats like cookies, mince pies or a Christmas cake 
  3. Write a letter to Father Christmas with Joshua 
  4. Read Christmas stories 
  5. Buy Christmas candles 
  6. Go ice skating or to an Alpine bar 
  7. Wear Christmas pyjamas 
  8. Make a gingerbread house  
  9. Create a Christmas playlist 
  10. Watch as many Christmas films as possible 
  11. Decorate the house 
  12. Visit Father Christmas 
  13. Go to see Christmas lights 
  14. Go to a Christmas market 
  15. Wear a Santa hat
  16. Make hand print ornaments with Joshua 
  17. Spend the afternoon doing Christmas crafts
  18. Make Christmas cards
  19. Go to the pantomime 
  20. Have a family games night with Christmas Monopoly 
  21. Spend the evening writing cards and wrapping presents 
  22. Go for a crisp winter walk 
  23. Go to a Christmas fayre 
  24. Buy our 2019 Christmas ornament 
  25. Leave mince pies and milk out for Father Christmas

  13. Omg, a crisp winter walk is my favourite part of this season! John x

  14. What a great list! I went to an alpine bar last night - it was super festive

  15. Aww this is such a lovely list! I really dont feel in the xmas mood this year but i think if i try doing thing from here it might help

  16. Week, it’s getting near now. I need to put together a bucket list for the festive season and you’re giving me a lot of inspiration.

  17. I'm definitely pinching your idea and making a Winter bucket list soon, as you say it's a great way to push you to get out even when it's cold! It must be so much fun having a child at Christmas time, being able to start new traditions with him and seeing him start to understand everything sounds so adorable! I'll definitely be doing lots of winter baking and maybe some crafting. I'm not very good at either but they get me into the spirit of things!
