Christmas countDOWN a.k.a. The 2013 Zaman Christmas Bucket List

One month until Christmas... 

           To be honest, December is a bit of a tricky month to navigate for me. On one hand, it's easy to get overwhelmed by everything I think or feel I should do and forget the actual reason for Christmas. But, if I don't plan or prepare anything, December flies by and I am left kinda in a daze wondering how it can be that Christmas is over, and how I missed out on all the once-a-year traditions.

           So in an effort to be organized, prepared & focused on the true meaning of Christmas, here is my Christmas bucket list for 2013

           24. Buy & decorate a real tree

           23. Buy Candy Cane Lane tea and drink as often as possible ;)

           22. Make a NOEL for the mantle

           21. Put together a Christmas Playlist

           20. Cut out snowflakes and decorate with them

           19. Watch as many Christmas movies as possible
