This is my favorite season of the year. From Halloween through New Years, I go hard. I do all of the things. Eat of all the things. Go HAM with decorations. Keep Vince Guaraldi’s “A Charlie Brown Christmas Album” on repeat. It’s my high season. High on life. High on peppermint mochas. High on it all.
Today, we’re still working through Halloween candy and gazing at our pumpkin that we never got around to carving (our story: we had another one, but carved it too soon and it got all gnarly within days and I had to through it out. We got another one, then watched this amazing, life changing carving demo, then got too busy to carve the guy!). But ahead, I have a lot on my November/December seasonal to do list, in addition to my regular to do list and my school to do list (because my daughter has a more active social life than I do).
In order to not feel overwhelmed, I’ve decided to assemble of the things I truly want to do over the next two months intro my very first Holiday Bucket List. These are the things I want to throw myself into wholeheartedly while wearing cozy holiday socks and shopping for gifts for my family. I hope my house smells like baked goods all season, and I hope friends come over in a steady stream for the next two months. Calories don’t count during this time, just laughs and hugs. ‘Tis the season.
What’s on your holiday bucket list? Write down the things you really want to do this season, not the things you have to do, but the things that make you really feel the holiday spirit. Keep a list, and check it often!by
