25 Days of Pri-mas

Thursday, December 7

I found this image on Pinterest and then could NOT find it again! Sorry! Not mine! 

If you've read this blog at ALL you know I love a "daily-list challenge" (not totally sure what to call this, but see 26 Days of Priya/26 Days of NOT Priya.)

Well, this translates pretty nicely to a festive activity advent calendar for the month of December! Really the idea behind this is to slowly get myself into the holiday spirit in a low-stress way, one day at a time. I just don't want the month of December to pass me by and realize "I didn't even enjoy the holiday!" Some of these are very small (say "Merry Christmas" to a stranger!) some are bigger (attend my office holiday party!) but all of them result in a festive af celebration of the holidays all month long.

(The calendar is accurate up until today, and I took into account things I already had planned for the rest of the month. I might have to move things around depending on what comes up but that's not the point!)


Day 1. listen to Christmas music!
Day 2. attend a town Christmas parade
Day 3. order a Starbucks holiday drink
Day 4. buy a Poinsettia
Day 5. volunteer at a food pantry
Day 6. put up my Christmas decorations
