Christmas Daily Album

I have seen numerous Albums created/being created for December. With a page for each days activities/events. I really LOVE Christmas and initially thought I would make one of these little albums. But I am having a hard time with making a page for everyday. My life, like most of yours, is pretty routine Monday thru Friday. But what is a girl to do. I have already made the album. What will I do with an album that has christmas pages numbered 1 - 25????

I decided (mere minutes ago) that my album will be a listing of 25 Christmas Essentials. I can't see having one of the daily albums every year. I'll post pics when I get some of the pages done.
I hope to start tonight.

What a clever idea and I do think it will be more meaningful to your family.

I always say I'm going to make one every year...but then I realize that the guilt that I will feel when I don't get it done will make me feel very *ba-hum-bug* and defeat the purpose.

I can't wait to see yours*!*

I am doing one too! I was originally going to daily Dec but to be honest, with my job, I don't want to spend 4 weeks complaining about bad days... So I am doing 25 Christmas traditions too. Here's my partial list of things to put in my book in case you need some ideas to get started:
* decorating the house
* Cookie/food recipes
* making xmas cards/receiving them
* Advent Calendar
* donating to others via the Giving Tree
* Trip to Santa/letter to Santa
* Favorite Xmas movies or music
* Playing in the snow
* leaving cookies for Santa
* Opening gifts
* Holiday meal
* Christmas pagents/parties/services

Hopefully - you will be inspired to do one too! I can't wait to see what you come up with!

I'm thinking of appropriating this idea myself, Jana. I think it will take some of the additional stress of "I have to do something to put in my album."
