Organize Christmas Morning
With Christmas morning, just like most mornings, preparing the night before makes all the difference.
If you missed my post on 7 Easy Ways to Organize Your Christmas Morning, you’ll want to check it out for ways to reduce stress and mess on Christmas morning.
The Night Before Christmas Checklist
To help you with your night before Christmas planning, I put together this quick checklist of things:
- Charge cameras or other devices.
- Finish any last minute wrapping.
- Locate those stocking stuffers so you can easily stuff them in the middle of the night.
- Read a Christmas Story.
- Wear Christmas jammies.
- Prepare a simple meal for breakfast.
- Finish up your preparation for your holiday dinner.
- Finally, give yourself grace. If you forgot to do something or didn’t get around to everything on your list. Let. It. Go.
Christmas is not a holiday that’s about getting it all done. So, take a deep breath, look around at your family, and embrace the joy of the day.
