Make a Holiday Calendar
Do you often have that feeling that the time between Thanksgiving and New Year's races by, and the holiday traditions you love somehow fall by the wayside? Set aside a little time now, before the crunch, to prioritize. Have each member of the family make a list of their favorite seasonal activities. Whether it's an evening of ice skating or a day of volunteering, pencil it onto the calendar. And remember, you don't necessarily have to wait until Thanksgiving to start checking things off the list!
