How Many Days Til Christmas?
Christmas Is Coming. It’s now nearly the end of September 2017 and only 93 sleeps to Christmas Day 2017. Check up on the top right of this post to see a Christmas Countdown Clock.
It’s HOW many days til Christmas? Yes, you read that right – only 93, and it will be fewer by the time you read this.
What are you doing to Prepare?
Do you know where you will be? Will you be having guests? How many? What about your budget? If you want a stress free Christmas, then start your Christmas planning early, ESPECIALLY budgeting. It saves that terrifying sinking feeling in January, when you look at your credit card bill.
Fun At Christmas
If you start planning early enough and your budget allows, you could get Christmas pajamas for all the family or Christmas sweaters. Some offices hold an “ugly Christmas sweater” competition each year. Start early for more fun and less stress.
You may also be able to plan a Secret Santa stash or discuss with your family that if budgets are tight all round, everyone gets a secret Santa gift, so you all can enjoy Christmas without worrying about purchasing expensive gifts you can’t afford. Some shops may have sales on now or shortly and you may be able to make some purchases early, to spread the cost.
Christmas Crafts can be very inexpensive, great fun and an easy way to keep children occupied for ages before Christmas. Many schools will help children from kindergarten on up to create decorations that they will want to display proudly at home. You can also make your own creations well ahead of time. The pine trees near me have been shedding cones all year round and I have a small box of them sitting nearby in a small wooden box that I got for free from a local shop, long with a large glass jar that had held pickled eggs. The wooden box already has red and green paper on it and the glass jar has had the label soaked off. One will make a good display and the other can hold pine cones soaked in a Christmas pot pourri fragrance, to make the whole house smell like Christmas for a very low cost.
What Sort Of Christmas Do You Want?
Whether you want a Bah Humbug! type Christmas, or a vacation away from it all or will have the whole family descending on you from far afield, start planning now and whatever your Christmas preferences, you will be able to enjoy them stress free!
Whether you like traditional or experimental food at Christmas time, there are recipes available for you from cooking the turkey to perfection, to special stuffings, to vegetarian or vegan meals and everything in between. Perhaps you would also like to check out what other countries serve for their Christmas meals. Some countries celebrate Christmas at a different time from the US, so if you travelled, you could experience 3 different Christmas dinners between the beginning of December and the start of January following. Even if you cook your main meal from scratch, it can be useful to get snacks and side dishes to keep ahead of time. Christmas food or hampers can also be useful gifts, especially for those far away.

Traditional roast turkey and ham for Christmas dinner is not to everyone’s liking, some people prefer fish or a vegan or vegetarian meal, while others prefer to try something new and exciting. Some people may prefer to keep their Christmas dinner very light and plain while others will have large numbers of family and friends to share the meal and some social time afterwards. Cooking a traditional meal means you always know what is on the menu and that can help reduce the stress levels compared with cooking something experimental. Even if you cook your main meal from scratch, it can be useful to get snacks and side dishes to keep ahead of time. Christmas food or hampers can also be useful gifts, especially for those far away.
