Here we are. Days from the Christmas holiday. Am I ready? Not quite. I feel like there are so many things I have yet to do! The house needs to be cleaned for the company arriving on Monday, the groceries all need to be bought, the presents need to be wrapped. . . what else am I forgetting? I’m sure there has to be more. There is always more. . .
With everything that needs to be done for the upcoming holidays, I am finding myself lost in a sea of responsibilities. Responsibilities that are honestly making me feel slightly less than holiday cheerful (Don’t hate me, that’s not something very easy to admit).
So what am I missing this year? I’ll tell you because I’m sure I already know. This year, as I am also working a full-time job and things seem to be piling up on me faster than before, having time for our Christmas traditions has been tough. Frankly, we are only days away from Christmas and we haven’t baked cookies or done any of those typical holiday moments yet!
But you know what? I am less than perfect and I can’t always have everything done and magical moments planned for my kids. Sorry, Pinterest! But, you know what? Holiday traditions don’t have to be perfect. They don’t have to be sparkly and magical. As sappy as it sounds, it’s about being together.
So if you’re like me and still want to squeeze in some family fun before the holidays are over but really haven’t had any time to create plans, we’ve included a list of 8+ ideas that can bring everyone together. Which ones will you rock out with this year? Share them with us on social media using the hashtags #ChristmasTraditions. We simply cannot wait to see what fun you create!
