Staring at a blank journal page can be intimidating! Here are some creative tips and ideas for writing in your Christmas journal.
Christmas at its core is a religious holiday. Sure, it’s become very commercial, but focusing on the meaning of the holiday, whether you are religious or not, can take some of the commercial out of the commercialism of Christmas.
Taking time to reflect on what really matters to you, your friends and family can make for an amazing way to connect with the spirit of the holiday season!
In our family we spend time looking back at years of memories after all the presents are opened and everyone is sitting around happy and full!
