Christmas Challenge

I saw this on one of my favorite blogs...Rockstar Diaries and I just fell in love with the idea. I know it's a tad late, but there is still plenty of time to cross all of these off your list before the 25th! ( I rhymed)
25 christmas challenges...

1. tell someone you love them
2. make a tree decoration that will remind you of Christ
3. in your prayers today, give thanks for every blessing without asking for anything
4. try to be as kind as possible to others today
5. try not to quarrel with family members today
6. do a good deed anonymously
7. make goals for yourself-- seal a copy in an envelope to be opened in a year
8. visit someone sick or lonely or sad
9. do volunteer work for some worthy cause
10. do something fun for a child or younger sibling
11. try to forgive someone who has wronged you, be reconciled
12. make a "give list" instead of a list of gifts you'd like

14. quietly reflect and choose uplifting activities vs shopping
15. phone or send a card to an old friend or family member
16. listen to Handel's Messiah
17. make a christmas treat for someone else
