Christmas is Coming…..

[4]The goose is getting fat.
Please put a penny in the old man’s hat.

Sorry, I couldn’t resist. They made us sing that every year in my elementary school’s Christmas program. The song plays in my head every time I hear the words, “Christmas is coming.”

Christmas is, indeed, on its way. We just saw someone putting up Christmas lights on Saturday! (Personally, I think that was a little premature.)

But, there’s a ton of ways that you can be preparing for the holiday that don’t involve climbing your roof.

– Check out Christmas in July [5]. The comments were great. So many recipes, book suggestions, and family fun ideas.

– Visit Simple Mom’s giveaway [6] for great Christmas Card resources. While you’re there, check out her 12 Week Plan for the Holidays [7].

– Browse Almost Frugal’s collection of Holidays by Hand posts [8], starting tomorrow.

– Participate in one of the countdowns at Organized Christmas [9]. Even if you don’t play day by day, you’ll think of things to do that you forgot.

– Same goes for all the helpful suggestions at 100 Days to Christmas [10]. You may think you’re late joining the game. But, just do whatever fits your groove.

– Visit Kisses of Sunshine’s carnival of Christmas crafts [11].

Have you started planning for Christmas? Tell us about it so we can be inspired.
