For the month of December, I want to give you some ways to celebrate the Christmas season. Too many years Christmas comes and goes and I don’t feel like I’ve even had time to enjoy and celebrate it. Filling December with fun festive holiday traditions will make Christmastime a season to remember for your family.

Each day in December I will post some different ideas for things to do with your family. We celebrate the “25 Days of Christmas” in our family rather than just 12, so I’ll be sharing ideas every day from now until Christmas.

Also, I normally have Book Talk on Mondays and Happy Thoughts on Wednesdays, but I will be putting that on hold until January.

From now until Christmas, watch for VanillaJoy’s ideas to celebrate the 25 Days of Christmas. Please share your ideas and traditions in the comments section below!

Dearest Vanilla Joy, I just love your blog keep up the good work I think its good to show others how to live a Christ like life and to have good values and morals and fun at the same time. I try to be more chist like every day i am human so i have to remind my self that the only one it matters to is Heavenly father and his son Jesus the christ again Thank you from Henderson Nevada. I would love to see how to do some of these crafts like the 25 days to christmas some advent calenders so get people to remember why we actually have chirstmas and its not just Santa . Have a great weekend and love your site . Love and blessing Cheyenne
