25 Christmas Challenges

Happy December everyone! 
It's now 24 more sleeps until Christmas. 
Since it's that time of year, I wanted to share a list I came across last year over at Naomi's blog, Rockstar Diaries. A list of 25 Christmas challenges! I loved this list and thought it would be a fun thing to do this December.
What do you think?
Want to do it with me?

25 christmas challenges...
  • go out of your way-- befriend someone today that needs a friend and follow through to christmas
  • tell someone you love them
  • make a tree decoration that will remind you of Christ
  • in your prayers today, give thanks for every blessing without asking for anything
  • try to be as kind as possible to others today
  • try not to quarrel with family members today
  • do a good deed anonymously
  • make goals for yourself-- seal a copy in an envelope to be opened in a year
  • visit someone sick or lonely or sad
  • do volunteer work for some worthy cause
  • do something fun for a child or younger sibling
  • try to forgive someone who has wronged you, be reconciled
  • make a "give list" instead of a list of gifts you'd like
  • improve yourself in some way to please the savior
  • quietly reflect and choose uplifting activities vs shopping
  • phone or send a card to an old friend or family member
  • listen to Handel's Messiah
  • make a christmas treat for someone else
  • be a calming influence today and control your temper
  • accept the gift of forgiveness-- pray for some weakness and ask for help in repenting of it
  • look at christmas lights... where does all light come from?
  • sing carols
  • do something nice for someone without their knowing it was you
  • be the first to say hello to people all day
  • ask someone to tell you about a past christmas

 And with the start of this month also comes the realization that I need to hurry up and get a move on with my Christmas shopping and gift making.... So many things to do. 
I love this time of year.
