Oh my, so many things to do before Christmas! In a perfect world, I would do every single thing on this list before Christmas:
1.) Bundle up and take in the Wildlights at the Columbus Zoo.
2.) Sip on a hot chocolate or two while shopping in the Short North. This Etsy shop has the cutest mugs!
3.) See The Nutcracker at the Ohio Theatre.
4.) Give back to some local charities like Mid-Ohio Food Bank, Capital Area Humane Society, or Alzheimer’s Association of Central Ohio.
5.) Check out the Christmas lights at The Scioto Mile + Columbus Commons.
6.) Design/make an elaborate gingerbread house. You could even have so much fun building a Grinch, Trolls, or Candy Land version!
7.) Host or attend a cookie decorating party, ornament exchange, gift wrapping party, cocktail party, and/or holiday brunch.
8.) Take a carriage ride at Easton Town Center.
9.) Snuggle up on the couch with friends/family + a great Christmas movie + candles. This one and this one are my favorite Christmas movies!
10.) Listen to a ton of Christmas music, including “All I Want for Christmas is You” by Mariah Carey + “Rockin Around the Christmas Tree” by Brenda Lee.
