25 days to give till x-mas

03 December, 2010


i like to have traditions during the holidays and giving is a major gift i love to give. i composed a list of 25 days to give till Christmas, a small way to get into the holiday spirit and to be active in giving back blessings i've been given. they're daily challenges but good to build up new years resolutions by getting me into the habit of reaching goals. each day i give myself a challenge that i must check off and share till Christmas day. i hope to share all the challenges till Christmas and inspire others to do the same. if anyone would like to share their goals or join in these goals, please do! send me your stories or goals and i would love to share them here too!

25 days to give till xmas:
leave a x-mas card on a bike (1 for each day till xmas)
do a good deed anonymously
sing christmas carols
make 25 holiday mixed tapes of your favorite xmas songs, share them with 25 friends
be creative by handcrafting xmas gifts
volunteer for a worthy cause
stroll to see xmas lights, leave a thank you note on you favorite decorated house
donate food, clothing, or other necessities
bake xmas treats for family or friends
make new year goals, write them out, check them off till next year
leave a nice comment on a different blog each day till xmas
share your favorite xmas story
be a secret Santa
befriend someone new
count your blessings, write them out, share them
go ice skating with friends, bring someone new

be kind
be helpful to someone by giving your time or resources

tell someone you them each day till xmas
