    Christmas Countdown Activities 2020: Week 1

    Since if one wants a unique or really just any advent calendar, one must start looking in SEPTEMBER and since I haven’t scored a sort of choose your own adventure from a thrift store (my mom has found a lovely sort of advent calendar cabinet, and I’ve seen a too expensive log house version, still hoping for a reasonably priced gem), I decided that doing a Christmassy activity every day was the way to go.

    Tuesday, December 1
    • Watched Hallmark’s Christmas Waltz
    Wednesday, December 2
    • Watched Hallmark’s If Only I Had Christmas
    Thursday, December 3
    • Wrapped Christmas presents
    • Put away Fall decor
    • Helped  decorate our family tree (I think it’s one of, if not the prettiest, we didn’t overkill on the decorations and the colors were more cohesive, also it’s a new faux tree that is super realistic looking)
    • Watched Hallmark’s Holiday Engagement
    Friday, December 4
    • Bought my little real tree!
    • More Hallmark
    Saturday, December 5
    • Watched I’ll Be Home for Christmas on Disney+(they have quite a few Christmas movies to choose from). Its funny how you can have 90’s nostalgia without having seen the actual 90’s movie itself.
