It's December and all over people are already in full gear for Christmas. If you're like me, you're ready to jump into the festive bucket lists and enjoy the many traditions of the season... but if you're like me, you also realize that those wonderful lists you see on Pinterest aren't always feasible. Whether you live in a place without snow, a country that doesn't really celebrate Christmas, you're on a budget this year, or you're just plain busy throughout December, I've compiled a list for you.
While I enjoy all the holiday experiences as much as the next person, I realized that it's easy for the Christmas season to get swamped in all the to-dos (however exciting and fun they may be) and the whole reason behind why we celebrate can easily get buried. On top of that, I can't be the only one who feels guilty when my Christmas ends up looking less like cookie-baking for friends and more like last-minute gift-bag making for our church program. What I'm saying is, it's ok if your Christmas doesn't look like a Hallmark movie. What your Christmas should be, however, is full of love, light, and laughter.
So here is my Christmas bucket list, created especially for the busy person in mind. Who might that be, you ask?
Everyone loves to receive mail, and it's a great idea for when you feel like you have nothing to do. Why not spend some time creating some pieces of mail and brighten up someone else's day? A fun way to up the game is to send what many people call "happy mail"-- it's basically the idea of sending as much happiness as you can cram into one envelope.
