12 things to do in December


1✮ Get cozy, bring the blankets, make pop corn and watch Christmas movies.  
There is a great selection of Christmas movies to watch, a few favourites are:
Elf (2003 - Will Ferrell)
Santa Clause (1994 - Tim Allen)
Love Actually (2003)
The Nightmare Before Christmas (1993 - Musical)
Christmas Town (2008)
Four Christmases (2008)
The Holiday (2006)
The Polar Express (2004)

2✮ Find cookie recipes and experiment. 
My favorite recipes are
Martha Steward Chocolate Truffle cookies (recipe here)
Classic Chocolate cookies (recipe here)
Outrageous Chocolate cookies (recipe here)

3✮ Listen to Christmas Songs Mix
My favourite playlists include
Michael Buble Greatest Hits - The Best Songs Of Christmas
Blake Shelton - Cheers It's Christmas
Dean Martin & Frank Sinatra Christmas Hits
New York Jazz Lounge Merry Christmas


4✮ Decorate your Christmas tree and your house. Play some christmas music and make your house festive.

5✮ Make Christmas crafts (two lovely ideas I posted earlier on my blog is The Bauble Wreath and the Door Christmas Decoration). You can also make ornaments for your tree, using pine cones or paper.

6✮ Go outside and play with the snow! Build a snowman, build a snow angel and take lots of pictures with your family and friends!!! And at the end, play snowball fight!!!

7✮ Get in the car or walk around your neighborhood to see the christmas decoration and lights! I love doing this with my god-daughter and her sister, they love walking to the village and seeing the christmas lights!

8✮ Go ice-skating! What can be more fun than ice-skating?

9✮ Make handmade cards, write your wishes and send them to friends and family. I used to do this many years ago but I stopped (don't know why) but I love this tradition. I also used to collect all the christmas cards that others sent to us!


10✮ Choose toys with your kids that are no longer using or loving and give them to a family that doesn't have the opportunity to buy new toys for their children. They would be delighted and kids will be so happy!

11✮ It's Harry Potter time!!! On December, we always watch (re-watch to be exact) all Harry Potter movies. The first one would always be my favourite!!

12✮ Make a Christmas pajama party or an indoors picnic! Wear your festive (or matching) pajamas, place a nice tablecloth on the floor and eat your lovely dinner in front of the tv!

  15. I wish I could go out and play in the snow, but there is no snow in the UK! :( Ever! I remember the good old days back in Poland, we'd get snow up to our waists for Christmas, and -30 degrees temperatures, haha! :D I probably didn't enjoy it back them but I'm nostalgic thinking about it. :) You've put together such a lovely, festive list! Really put me in a Christmas mood, which isn't easy (I'm a bit of a Scrooge, haha). <3 Loving all those cookie recipes, they're so delicious! <3 Thanks so much for sharing, lovely. I hope you're well! <3 xoxo Will deffo check out some of the things on your fab list. :) x
