Starting to plan your holiday traditions? It seems early, but if you do holiday traditions around Thanksgiving, it isn't that early. So, let's plan shall we. Every year, there are many holiday traditions we take part in and host, from visiting Thanksgiving Day Parade, visiting Santa, hosting lots of holiday parties, etc... Here is an "organize your holiday traditions" tips to help you manage all the events that take place around the holidays.
First, make a list of all your holiday traditions (print out and use one sheet for each tradition) and find the dates you are planning to do these traditions. Then, on each sheet do the following:
- Add the tradition name and date of the event.
- Add the people you want to invite to this particular tradition.
- Fill in the date that you want to send out invitations.
- Add items that need to be done before, during, and after the task list.
- Email everyone invitations or send them appointments on the date and time of the event.
Tip: By sending a digital invitation through your Microsoft Outlook Calendar, iPhone Calendar, or Android Calendar, or using Evite or Smilebox similar websites, it will allow them to accept the tradition event easily so you will get a response quicker.
Here is a checklist to organize your holiday traditions. Print this out and use for each holiday tradition you have this holiday season. Then arrange them in a holiday binder for next year's reference.
Tip: If you want to wait until it is closer to the holiday, you can print this out, fill out the name of the tradition and date. Then, place it in an accordion folder for the month that the event is taking place. Check out what I did with my family's papers.
