The 25 days of Christmas

Last year we participated in the 25 days of Christmas, where we did one thing every day leading up to the big holiday. It was such a big success in our household, so we decided to do it again this year. Here are our 25 days of Christmas for 2010.

1. Put up Christmas decorations
2. Put up Christmas lights
3. Decorate Lola's Christmas tree
4. Christmas tree hunting and decorating
5. Deliver Christmas decorations to Anonymous
6. Make paper chain garland for the tree
7. Serve sparkling cider with dinner
8. Colouring night - each year, colour in the same book and date it
9. Make our own Christmas tree decorations
10. Make and hang edible gifts for the birds
11. Get holiday hair cuts
12. Go to a Christmas concert
13. Eat Festive Specials for dinner
14. Drink hot chocolate by the light of the tree
15. Listen to Christmas carols
16. Decorate and eat Gingerbread cookies
17. Get dressed up in Christmas outfits and take a family photo with the tree
18. Bake Christmas cookies
19. Watch a Christmas movie on the fold out couch
20. Deliver cookies to the neighbours
21. Go for a walk and look at the lights
22. Wrap presents
23. Celebrate Christmas in Collingwood
24. Read 'Twas the night before Christmas
25. Christmas at home, love every minute of it! Call all of our family and tell them how much we love them. Especially Isabella!

I'll try to remember to take photos and post them as we go, but sometimes the season just goes by so quickly.

As a still relatively new vegetarian. I really miss the festive special. Sounds like a fun list.

You should include a 26th day "Celebrate Christmas Dunton Style; Lots of food, lots of naps and games that end in injuries".
