Okay, Ladies, this week’s blog post is geared towards helping you! We all know that it is mostly the women in households who make the “Christmas Magic” happen each year. (No offense men.) I know it can be overwhelming when you think about all of the things that need to be done. How do we keep it all straight? This year I want to give you a tool to make life a little bit easier for you. Introducing my Mama’s Christmas Magic To-Do List! I did my best to list all of the things we moms have to think about and get done during the Christmas season. Hopefully, you will find it to be quite comprehensive, but if not, you will notice an extra bullet point on each section for you to write in anything unique to you. You may also notice that some of the items on the lists are not necessarily appropriate for a Covid Christmas. I understand that a lot of us will not be going to class parties this year or seeing a Christmas musical with our family. I left those items on the lists, however, because I want this to be something you can come back to year after year.
I plan to print Mama’s Christmas Magic To-Do List and check off items as I go. Even if certain items on this list are not something I normally do for the holiday, it is still a great way for me to think everything through and decide what does and doesn’t need to be done. I encourage you to scroll through the list below. If you wish to print, just click the Pop-Out on the upper right hand of the document for the option to print.
***The Christmas Gift List Tracker App I suggest in Mama’s Christmas Magic To-Do List is new to me this year, but it looks really great! I am excited to use it! Be sure to look it up in the App Store. It is FREE and linked here. https://apps.apple.com/us/app/christmas-gift-list-tracker/id1444504033
Cheers to an organized Christmas season!
Kerry—I LOVE this! Thank you for helping me get organized (& appreciate why I’m so tired post-Christmas season)! Even joyful work can be work. That said, I’m a planner & an organizer & I’m embarrassed to say I’ve been on this planet for decades & never once thought to make a “to-do” list for Christmas. Until you made it for me! Yah! I’m excited to print this out & make it my own. I think delegating work will be easier, too. I’d love to hear what others add to personalize the list! Cheers to all the Santa-moms who truly bring Christmas magic to their families!
Hi Michelle- I am so happy you found this list helpful! It is crazy when you look at it and realize all that we do as moms to get ready for Christmas. We really do make the magic happen. Let me know if you add things to the list as I can always revise it for future years. Happy planning!
