Do you sometimes find the planning for Christmas a little over-whelming? We want to help you create the Christmas of your dreams AND keep the stress at bay.
Introducing the “My 12 Days of Christmas Challenge”.
Our aim is simple: provide a relaxed fun way to help you enjoy getting the Christmas jobs done AND have time for yourself!
Why: Many of us are the ‘organisers of Christmas’ which means running around buying and wrapping presents, choosing and preparing menus, etc. etc. and it’s easy to get overwhelmed and leave it all to the last minute.
How it works and when it starts:
For 12 days, starting Monday November 30th you will choose one activity to complete each day. There are four activity categories to choose from to ensure that you are keeping things balanced and include taking care of YOU during this time. Which means that with 12 days and four categories you will do an activity in each category three times.
Feedback from 2014 participants:
– Can’t believe its over! Will it be an annual event? I’ve really loved it and am better prepared than any other year:-), Ann
– Shame it’s the last day. I’ve thoroughly enjoyed the challenge and reading the posts of others. I am way better prepared than I’ve ever been I think. Puddings made, house and work decorated and only 3 presents to buy. Tomorrow morning is for me with a much needed cut and colour and 2 hours to read trashy mags, Melinda
– Thank you Nicole for organising this great challenge. It’s been fun, even just putting up posts and seeing everyone else’s decorations and ideas. Melissa
The categories are: For Me, For Others, For the Family, For the Home
When you register to be part of the challenge, you will receive a downloadable challenge page to help you get organised for the challenge and decide what activities you are going to choose. We provide you with suggested activities and ideas. Simply print the page, fill out your activities for each day and hang in where you can see it. Make it into a family activity and invite your children, partner and friends to join you!
