Christmas bucket lists are a wonderful way to create family memories that will last a lifetime. Our family looks forward to creating a new Christmas bucket list each year. Christmas truly is a magical time of year! We simply can’t get enough of all the holiday cheer and in NYC makes it even more exciting! My family believes that if it was socially acceptable my daughter and I would celebrate Christmas all year long – they’re not wrong!

Ok, maybe celebrating all year would take away from the wonder and magic of the holiday season. Instead, we try to soak up every single second leading up to Christmas. By January 1st I’m completely exhausted but it is so worth it. My kids will only be this age once but the memories will live on forever!

How to set up your Christmas bucket list – I use popsicle sticks and the kids take turns picking out our activity. So much fun!

Let’s be honest for a moment – it’s impossible to get to everything on this list. Do as much or as little as you want. Only you know your family. This list is meant merely as a suggestion and made up of things my family has done in years past.

Now on to the Christmas bucket list:
