So Many Christmas Activities, So Little Time! – A Seasonal Bucket List

The month of December is filled with traditions.

Hannah and I met a little over a year and a half ago, and have officially been together for a little over a year now. Pretty early on, we found ourselves creating lasting memories and traditions. As summer ended and the holidays were approaching, we were constantly discussing all of the many activities that we wanted to do together this season.

To say we were excited is an understatement.

This might sound ridiculous, but when Hannah and I suddenly moved in together in May, I was already expressing my excitement for all of the holiday activities we now had the chance to participate in by living together. She could have said something along the lines of “it’s a little too early to be talking about Christmas activities.” But she didn’t, because we’re so in sync that she was just as excited as I was! During this time, we didn’t go into much detail about holiday activities, but we knew we wanted to experience more together this season.

Lets get the Christmas traditions started!

December is notorious for being a month where people create some of their fondest memories. Last December, Hannah and I were apart for the majority of December and January. During this time, she lived on her college campus and went home to be with her family for the holidays, while I was still living at home.  It was difficult for us because we really wanted to be together and do fun Christmas activities. Fortunately, we were still able to squeeze in a few activities before she had to leave, so we already have a few traditions in place from last year.

We’re both extremely busy during the week and this can make it hard for us to prioritize the activities that we genuinely enjoy as we only have the weekends to ourselves. We vowed to try our best to spend as much time together this month while knocking some of our favorite holiday traditions off of our bucket list. A lot has changed for us within the last year and we’re so excited to be experiencing these changes together. This makes us more ready to tackle our Christmas bucket list.

Without further ado, let’s get into our Christmas activities bucket list!

  1. Decorate a Christmas tree
  2. Bake Christmas cookies
  3. Watch a Christmas movie every day/night of December
  4. Go ice skating
  5. Drive around and look at Christmas lights
  6. Make a Christmas playlist
  7. Build a gingerbread house
  8. Make a Christmas inspired recipe
  9. Create our first Christmas card
  10. Have a snow day
  11. See a play or musical
  12. Take Christmas photos
  13. Make s’mores
  14. Do a random act of kindness
  15. Make the house smell like Christmas

Although this list is true to us, these are great bucket list items for anyone to try!

Until next time,

Ariana & Hannah

    I love the idea of taking a snow day! It’s amazing how recharged you can get by just having one day off from everything. What a great list!

    My favorite thing is going to Fat Sals picking up a sandwich and driving around looking at Christmas lights!

      This sounds a delicious take on looking at Christmas lights!

    Nice bucket list. I doubt my Christmas will be that busy, I mainly turn up for food. But maybe I’ll get a tree and see if I can make it look decent. We’ll see. Thanks for sharing!

    Christmas traditions are so important–I love that you guys have 15 of them!

  • Reply Emily Bendler December 9, 2017 at 5:55 pm

    Many of these are on our list too. I’d love to do the movie one, but my son insists on the Grinch like every other night which I guess could count if repeats are allowed, lol.

    Random act of kindness is a good 1 for me. Thanks for that reminder…. I’ll also make sure to make the house smell like christmas – exciting!

    So far I have decorated a Christmas tree, looked at Christmas lights, created our first family Christmas card & did Christmas photos. We are baking Christmas cookies next week!
