Hey, guys! Instead of a Songs of the Week article last week, I decided to hop on the “holiday articles” bandwagon and make a holiday-themed article! I mean, I already have a holiday/winter themed page (I even changed the flowers to snowflakes in my blog title which was something I wasn’t considering doing at first) so I guess I can add to the holiday spirit on my page and write a couple holiday-themed articles. This will just be some ideas of what to do during the holidays, and I’m sure a lot of other people have already done articles like this with some of the same things I’m about to put in here, so this is just my unique bucket list for the holidays (and winter too)!

Thank you so much for reading this article! Hopefully, this article gave you some ideas on what to do this holiday season, or maybe you’ll actually go through this entire bucket list and try to complete as many of these as you possibly can! I really loved writing this article because it’s something different than my usual Songs of the Week articles and it’s nice to switch things up every now and then. I gotta admit though, it was tough finding pictures for some of these ideas. For example, I didn’t find any pictures of Toys For Tots so that’s the only thing on this entire list that has no pictures. There weren’t many pictures of The Salvation Army which is why there’s only one picture for that.

If you liked this article, heart it! If this gets enough hearts I may end up doing a couple other Christmas/winter themed articles. Feel free to send me article ideas, song recommendations for my Songs of the Week article series, or just send me a message to say hi!
