Christmas TogetherWe're here year round and even though we are scattered all over the world and most of us have never met face-to-face we find ways to celebrate the season together. From our annual Christmas exchanges to scheduled chats our Christmasing together is discussed here.
I like organising for Christmas too. I do it on the computer but I also have a Christmas Notebook.
I like to start around now as it gives me a chance to start thinking Christmas a little bit earlier while waiting for things to really start.
I have a gift list, card list , Christmas Food Shopping List and menu. I also have a To DO List of all the little jobs I need to get done in time for Christmas including all the cleaning I have to get done.
Preparing for Christmas makes me feel excited and I like spending time thinking about all things Christmas especially while we wait for the season to really pick up.

My holiday is so involved I really need a spreadsheet so I don't forget anything...especially new ideas I have throughout the year. You know, new decoration ideas, new menu options. I like to have the whole house cleaned and prepped prior to putting up the decor. It's the one time of year that cleaning actually feels festive to me.
I also like to have my shopping all done for food and I like to have my cookies baked by Thanskgiving so I can relax and start enjoying.

I'm not nearly organized enough to have a Christmas spreadsheet, but my parents have a Christmas decorating spreadsheet. They do so much decorating that they have target weeks for completing a particular room or area of the house beginning in October.

I don't make a list for everything I do for Christmas, but I make a list of what I got everyone for Christmas and check the list as I wrap each gift. When I shop for stocking stuffers, I make a list of what I want to buy so I don't forget anything. When we have friends over for a holiday celebration, I make a list of everything I want to serve. I also make a list of appetizers and whatever else I'll serve on both Christmas Eve and Christmas Day. It helps to be organized, and I would be so upset if i forgot something.
