Welcome to Blogmas Day 23! I can’t believe it’s nearly over! Today I am going to be talking about my Christmas bucket list. I have a lot of seasonal goals I want to achieve in life, so I’m going to document them here. I’m hoping that will motivate me to make them happen someday. Without further ado, let’s get into it!
1.) I’m Dreaming Of A White Christmas…
In all seriousness, I really want to experience a White Christmas someday – maybe in NYC, Germany, Switzerland or Moscow? In Australia, December is the beginning of summer, so it’s always super hot and dry. The area I live in doesn’t even get snow, unless we drive to the mountains. I’m not a huge fan of the cold, but I would suck it up for a Winter Wonderland.
2.) Christmas Decorations Extravaganza!
I have always wanted to go over the top with Christmas lights and decorations. I used to dream of covering my own future home from top to bottom in festive goodness. However, despite living in my own house for two Christmases, the decorating has been quite minimal so far. Maybe when Abigail is older, I can go a little crazy. We shall see.
3.) Elf on the Shelf Madness!
The Elf on the Shelf has become so popular with parents and children. Abigail is much too young at the moment, but once she’s old enough, I am going to jump right on that bandwagon. If you’re not sure what Elf on the Shelf is, basically you buy a box that comes with both the elf and a book (see here) and every night leading up to Christmas, you put the doll in different positions so when your child wakes up, they can see what he/she’s been up to overnight. Some parents get super creative with it. I know Abi is going to love it in the future
4.) See the Nutcracker Ballet
Just one year, I really want to see The Nutcracker ballet. I adore the soundtrack and the story. It’s so magical and whimsical. I just know it would be phenomenal and put me in the biggest festive mood.
5.) Attend the Midnight Service at Church
This one may surprise you as I’m not religious in the slightest, but I think there is something beautiful about the Midnight Service on Christmas Eve. I would like to do it just once in my lifetime.
6.) Go Ice Skating at Rockefeller Centre
If you’ve seen Serendipity, you know all about this ice skating rink. It’s beautifully decorated during the Christmas time and looks super romantic. I would love to skate there someday with Francis. It would be a dream come true.
7.) Volunteer at a Shelter
Christmas is a time of giving and I honestly would love to volunteer at a shelter nearby. It is such a kind thing to do and I plan to make it happen. Here is a list of all the ways you can help out this Christmas in Melbourne, Australia.
8.) Own The Body Shop Advent Calendar
If only they weren’t so expensive! I would love to splurge on one of these someday and do a blog post un-boxing. You can check them out here.
I hope you enjoyed this post. What is on your Christmas bucket list? Let me know some more ideas down below. Thank you for reading and I’ll see you tomorrow!
Peace & Love xoxo
