Winter Bucket List 2015

It’s already the 3rd of December and that means it’s time for the fourth and final seasonal bucket list of 2015.  This is the third Winter Bucket List I’ve written and obviously there is some repetition in there.  There’s something about Winter, and Christmas in particular, which I think begs for tradition and therefore repetition.  Of course as Amy gets older there’s also a pleasure in introducing her to all these festive traditions and experiences.

So here’s our list for Winter 2015 with just some of the things we are looking forward to: 
1. Snow related fun – sledging, snow angels, snow men, snow balls … you know the score!  We’ve not had a proper snow fall for a few years now so fingers crossed we at least get a coupe of days this year! 
2. See Father Christmas – This year we’re heading back to Stockeld Park for festive fun and I’m so excited to see what Amy thinks of it all 
3. Write letters to Father Christmas
4. Deck the halls with boughs of holly – or at least decorate the house with full on festive cheer
5. Buy new Christmas decorations
6. Watch Ben and Chloe’s school nativity 
7. Read Christmas stories
8. Enjoy warming up with a hot chocolate after an cold adventure
9. Ice skating – now a Butler / Burgess family tradition
10. A nighttime adventure to see the Christmas lights and markets in Manchester
11. Write Christmas cards
12. A festive day out in Liverpool
13. Enjoy a Christmas back in York
14. Christmas films
15. Meet my three style challenges as set by Anna

Watch out for updates over the next few months!

    Ooh. I've done a whole… ONE… thing from your bucket list thus far! This is reminding me that I should probably work on mine as well.

    I totally agree that the Christmas season is great for setting new traditions and repeating old ones! Love all your ideas and hope you enjoy doing them all!:)

    What a fab bucket list for winter. I also hope we get a good few days of snow. I'm sure my little boy would love to build a snowman now he's a little older. I can't wait to head into the Manchester markets myself this year.
