With Christmas now just days away you might be feeling a bit overwhelmed. Or, you might be ready for more holiday happenings. We’re looking forward to squeezing a few more in like…
Santa’s Post Office
Every Macy’s across our country has a huge red Santa mailbox and fun postcards sitting next to the box for kids to write their special Christmas wishes. Totally free to us, yet for every letter received, Macy’s will donate $1 to the Make-a-Wish Foundation, up to $1 Million! Fun for the kiddos, great for the charity. More than 800,000 letters have already been received!
The Elf on the Shelf
Facebook mom friends of mine have been raving about the fun they are having with “The Elf on the Shelf” and their little sugar plums at home. Feels like there’s still time left in this holiday season to start a shelf elf holiday tradition of our own. Apparently, you place the little guy in different places each day, everyone has fun trying to find him and kids are apparently on extra-good behavior knowing the elf is watching. The book and elf kit is available in lots of toy stores and bookshops around town and online. I just saw them in Learning Express Toys in Carlsbad.
Christmas Light Tours
There are so many great places to see Christmas lights in San Diego and even special limo tours that are fun for the whole family. One neighborhood, Knob Hill in San Marcos, even has its own website! We’ll be checking that out along with our regular trip to Christmas Card Lane in RP.
Seaworld’s Christmas festivities, visiting the Christmas tree at the Hotel Del, going to The Nutcracker and The Grinch are some of our other favorite Christmas traditions. Let the countdown begin!
