Embrace the Magic: Creating Your December Bucket List

 

December is a month brimming with enchantment. As the year draws to a close and the holiday season unfurls its charm, it’s the perfect time to create a December bucket list. This list is not just about accomplishing tasks; it’s about embracing the spirit of the season, making memories, and kindling your inner Joy.

Brr, it’s cold outside, this activity is one of my favorite things to enjoy in the winter. Embrace the frosty delights of winter by going ice skating. Whether you’re a seasoned skater or a novice, the experience is pure enchantment. Let yourself go!

Holiday movies are a very special way to bring joy into your life.  Host a holiday movie marathon with your favorite classics. Snuggle up with loved ones, popcorn in hand, and enjoy the timeless tales of the season.

Remember to spend time in quiet contemplation, prayer or meditation.  In the midst of the festive hustle and bustle, take moments of solitude to reflect, meditate, or simply soak in the quiet beauty of December.

Stargazing in the Snow.  If you’re fortunate enough to have a snowy landscape, venture out on a clear night and gaze at the stars. The winter sky has its own special magic.

As the year ends, reflect on your journey and set intentions for the year ahead. Find a quiet space, pour yourself a cup of tea, sit in silence and allow the feelings flow. Take a few moments to write a letter to your future self, detailing your aspirations and dreams.

 

Joy is to be shared with others, you can only give away what you have, start by adorning your home with twinkling lights, wreaths, and festive decorations. The act of transforming your living space into a fabulous and fun winter wonderland sets the stage for a month filled with warmth and cheer.

Food is love, and what better way to show yourself some love, by indulging your taste buds in seasonal delights. Sip on hot cocoa, bake gingerbread cookies, and savor the taste of candy canes. Spend an afternoon with friends in your home and bake cookies. Self-care begins with your senses so let them revel in the magic of December flavors. You’ll be happy you did!

December is a time for giving, it’s not about the presents under the tree, give of yourself, you’ll be amazed at how good you feel.  Make it a point to perform random acts of kindness, whether it’s donating to a charity, volunteering your time, or simply spreading smiles wherever you go. Kindness is contagious

Let your creativity go wild! Gather your crafting supplies. All it takes is a few pieces of card stock or construction paper, a little glue, some glitter, colored pens or pencils, to create handmade holiday cards. Each card carries a piece of your heart and spreads the joy of the season.

December is the perfect month for festive community events.  Check out local holiday events, whether it’s a tree lighting ceremony, a holiday market, or a festive concert. These experiences infuse your December with a sense of community, happiness and merriment.

    Creating a December bucket list is about infusing your life with wonder, joy, and connection during this magical season. It’s a reminder to savor the moments, kindle your inner child, and celebrate the beauty of December in all its glory.

    Have fun with your bucket list!
