If you are looking to get into the holiday spirit, grab your family members and start a new tradition – a holiday bucket list! This is a great way to spend quality time while checking off festive activities – including reading Christmas books, cooking favorite recipes, and even singling a Christmas Carol or two. 

We don’t always have a guaranteed White Christmas. That’s why we have to make sure we bring the Christmas magic every year. So, put on some Christmas music, pour hot cocoa into the most festive mugs you have, put on It’s A Wonderful Life, and let’s get this party started.
