Happy Saturday folks! This is the first time in a while that I am blogging on a Saturday, and I think that it is awesome. I will admit that I was running out of ideas, that is until I stumbled upon this list from The Mini Millionaire, which has 100 plus Blogmas ideas!
This prompt truly spoke to me in trying to create a fun blogmas season that is varied in posts. And, it also sparked my interest, because this holiday season is going to be a hard year for me since it is the first without my mom. So, giving me something to look forward to, and to create a list of things that I want to do just makes it a bit more fun.
So, here’s my list:
- Go see the Festival of Lights in New Haven: I’ve been wanting to do this for years. It’s really fun, because you drive around and see really cool holiday lights. There is something about Christmas lights that gets me into the holiday spirit. Therefore, I want to try to head to this this year, so I can try to be a bit more festive.
- Finish my holiday reads:
Every year, I try to read a few different holiday books, and this year is no different. I did this last year, and I read What Light by Jay Asher. I love reading them, and it definitely helps in terms of getting me into the Christmas mood. I am currently reading We Met In December. Next up, I am working on 10 Blind Dates, which is more of a New Year’s Book, but I definitely want to read it this month.
- Walk around a Downtown Area with Christmas Lights:
Last year, my boyfriend and I walked around the downtown area of his town, which is lit up with trees and holiday lights. I want to do this again because it was such a great and inexpensive date idea, and this puts me in the holiday spirit. Plus, I can also get my steps in as well, which is always a good thing.
- Go to the Mall During Christmas Time: Okay, so maybe I am a bit of insane for this one. But, there is something about the mall during the holiday season that puts me in the Christmas mood. It’s an experience, and I recommend you going — even if you’ve already completed your holiday shopping.
- Bake Cookies:
One thing that I want to do is bake cookies, because Christmas cookies are the absolute best. This year, I want to try to make stuff that my mom used to, because it will feel like my mom is here with me during this holiday season.
- Watch Christmas Movies: I am terrible at watching movies, so I want to try to watch a few old favorites to get into the holiday spirit. Plus, every year, you have to watch the Charlie Brown Christmas special, am I right?
