12 Weeks of Holiday Planning and Preparation (Week 1)

I don’t know about you, but Christmas seems to sneak up on me EVERY YEAR!

Even when I have Christmas activities planned for the kids, we never get around to doing them until a few days beforehand.

Even when I’ve said I will get around to doing my Christmas shopping before or by Black Friday and not wait until Christmas Eve, I have found myself literally trudging through the snow on the 24th looking for gifts!

That’s life the crazy way.

Let’s now look at a saner way of doing things.

Cue The 12-Week Holiday Planner!

The 12-Week Holiday Planner | LearningWithMom.orgI can’t say enough good things about this planner. It has been a life-saver. Helping me to remember things I would otherwise forget —

  • like how to reflect on the holidays
  • how to establish my own home traditions
  • how to remember to honor Christ in everything

This first week is centered around LIST-MAKING.

It begins with a Holiday Self-evaluation! (Imagine that – time to think and evaluate on what you want to get accomplished during the holidays instead of just sailing mindlessly through them.)

It continues with lists for Gift making, Christmas cards, Thanksgiving menus, Christmas menus, New Year’s menus... (What?! New Year’s, too? Oh, yes!) … and even a Wardrobe planner!

This first week sets the foundation for the rest of the weeks to come.

Keep making that list and checking it twice! (Oops, I started singing there. You understand, don’t you? Thank you. No judgment! ^_^)

I would love for you to join me in this 12-week planning endeavor!

It’s very simple –>
