The holiday season is filled with magic, especially when you incorporate your traditions. There are so many things I love to do during Christmas that it is pretty hard to keep track of it all. I loved my Halloween Bucket List so much that I decided I definitely needed one for Christmas too! Here is my Christmas bucket list with items you will love to do with your family all month long.

Family Christmas Bucket List

  • Hunt for the perfect tree – we used to be real tree people but I have totally moved over the fake tree side and I am not mad about it one bit. I do miss picking our tree each year but we just make a visit to the farm instead and the girls are just as happy.
  • Kiss under the mistletoe – I can never get too many little kisses from my sweet girls.
  • Eat a candy cane 
  • Donate toys to kids in need
  • Sing Christmas carols
  • Hang twinkle lights
  • Bake cookies
  • Wear Christmas jammies
  • Make paper snowflakes

  • Write a letter to Santa
  • Build a snowman
  • Drink hot cocoa

  • Drive around and look at Christmas lights – one of our favorite things to do! We love to dress in our pjs, pack popcorn, and drive around. Scott even has the 1-3 honk method for how much we like the lights and the girls get a kick out of it!
