So since I am a list person, I thought that I would write a list of some activities/ideas/traditions to do in the days leading up to Christmas. I know I won't be able to do everything on this list, but in writing some of them down, there is definitely a better chance. :)
Buy a Christmas Tree and decorate it!
Read some Christmas stories like Gift of the Magi and the Nativity Story.
Turn off all the lights except the Christmas tree and listen to Christmas music while relaxing with some sort of hot drink.
