The past few weeks have really been a bummer.  Covid-19 has been rough but in the summer socially distanced fun was a lot more do-able with outside time, and with cases raging, and restrictions tightening again right around the holidays I know we definitely feel like we’re missing out. 

Sharing what we’ll be doing for Christmas this year that will keep us safe at home! 

I’m sharing 25 soccially-distanced Chrstimas ideas, but full disclosure, I fully expect that we will only do 12 of these activities.

…but we’ll still be starting it December 1. 


Does anyone else think 25 days of Christmas Activities is just a little too much to be realistic? 

We do! 

I also know that I’ll miss days so starting early is a must to even fit in 12 days

So 12 days of Christmas it is but split over 25 days, whenever we fit it in 🙂
