Rudolph Day February
My Rudolph day post is late, but I have been working on my plans for Christmas to some extent. If you are unfamiliar with Rudolph Day, each 25th of the month, I will work on some aspect of Christmas. I am determined to be ready for Christmas before Thanksgiving! Things get so busy from Thanksgiving until Christmas, being prepared before then will allow me to enjoy the season without the stressful craziness.
It’s never too early to start your Christmas Planner. A Christmas Planner can contain anything you need to prepare for Christmas. Some necessities for your Christmas planner are: Calendar, gift idea planner, and a gift list. It’s also important to determine your budget up front. There are a lot of sites that have Christmas/Holiday planners. The one I use came from Organized Christmas. They have a few plans to choose from, however, they start as early as August, and as late as October. You may want to start your planner sooner if you are going to be shopping throughout the year. Just google “Christmas Planner” and see what comes up.
So I set up my planner last month for my January Rudolph day. This month I commissioned a craft for a friend. It’s so cute, but I can’t post a photo of it in case she looks. For another friend, I am collecting holiday items post-holiday to give her a sort of holiday celebration kit for the year. I have written the costs down so that I can keep track and not go over budget. I am also looking into starting a Christmas club account to put money aside for the kids gifts which are best bought closer to Christmas. (I don’t want them to outgrow items, or buy video games/music items that are so yesterday.)
That’s what’s up with my Rudolph Day. Will you join along with me for an easier, stress free holiday?
