Crazy for Christmas Challenge: September

Christmas, Crazy for ChristmasAmy WileyComment

OK, my Christmas-loving friends… it’s time to get down to business! We have three more Crazy for Christmas Challenge days left, so we are going to be crossing things off the list left and right. In other words… we are going to be so productive and feel AWESOME about our progress! Let’s jump into this month’s tasks.

Choose Your Advent Devotionals

Now is a great time to decide what kind of devotional you would like to go through for the advent season. Set aside a new book or dream up what you will do as a family. I would caution to keep things simple, as the December schedule is so busy… BUT carving out time to ponder the true reason for the season is so important. I will be going through this book for the first time this year and I’m really looking forward to it. As a family, we’ve really enjoyed this book or this book either in the mornings or around the dinner table. There are many beautiful books out there to guide you and your family through the Christmas season.

Plan Your Movie Nights


I love Christmas movies so much! Now is a great time to pick your top four or five must-see holiday films. Start scheming about treats, dinners and themes. Your December schedule is probably still up in the air, but starting to plan what you want to do will save time later. Then you can plug the movie nights into your calendar once it takes shape. Even though many Friday nights are booked up with parties or other activities, the beauty of Christmas break is the opportunity for movies on weeknights! Join the Crazy for Christmas Challenge email list to get the handy printable. Be sure to follow my Christmas Pinterest board for lots of inspiration as the season approaches.

Declutter Toys

If you have kids in your home, now is the perfect time to start decluttering that ever-growing pile of toys. Start donating items that are no longer needed to make room for the new arrivals Christmas will bring. Out with the old, because you know the new is coming!

Keep Buying Gifts

Check some more gifts off your list by shopping a little today. Anything you buy now saves you time and money later! This is one of my favorite go-to gifts.

I’m loving hearing about everyone’s gift closets filling up and plans being made. Our Facebook group is the perfect place to brag on your progress! Have a merry Wednesday!
