The days are marching on toward Christmas.  Do you have your advent calendars ready?  Wreath on the front door?  Lights on your tree?  Here’s a timeline to get ahead of your checklist during the first weeks of December, so you can better enjoy the holiday season. 

First week of December:

  • Prepare Christmas cards

  • Shop for kitchen and serving supplies

  • Create first impressions in the entryway

  • Decorate the tree

  • Start cleaning room by room – bathrooms, bedrooms and guest spaces, eating spaces

December 11th:  Mail out-of-town gifts

December 14th:  Mail Christmas cards

December 15th:  Make dough for cookies.  Freeze and decorate as a family later.

December 20th:  Create your party playlist so you can be light on your feet through the holidays!

December 21st:  Deliver gifts to neighbors, mailman, etc.

Celebrate!  Celebrate!  Celebrate!

And, if all else fails, take a cue from Christmas with the Kranks and book a trip to the Caribbean!
