HOLIDAY CHECKLIST CONTENT PROVIDED BY NEWSPAPER TOOLBOX

To avoid holiday mayhem, you need to remain organized in the days and weeks leading up to the main event. Here’s a checklist that will help you keep track of everything that needs to be done before Christmas.

DECORATING THE HOUSE

ENTERTAINING

BUYING GIFTS

Go through your decorations and throw out and replace anything that’s broken • Hang outdoor decorations before the cold weather arrives • Decorate the inside of your house • Don’t set up your natural Christmas tree until a week or two before the day (or it will be dry by the time Santa arrives)

Choose a theme for your party if you’re having one • Make reservations (caterer, event space, restaurant, cleaning crew, Santa Claus) • Send out invitations • Decide on a menu (don’t forget to consider your guests’ allergies and dietary restrictions) • Make separate grocery lists for what can be purchased weeks in advance and what must be bought in the days before • Start cooking (make dishes in advance and freeze them) • Make a seating plan and choose the table decorations • Obtain any extra dishes, napkins or chairs you need • Choose the music and plan party games • Clean the house from top to bottom • Prepare a room for overnight guests • Make sure your driveway and walkway are clear

Organize a gift exchange Start shopping early to avoid crowds • Make note of what to buy for each person on your list • Write holiday cards and send them out early to ensure they arrive before the holiday • Help your kids write their letters to Santa and send them off • Buy wrapping paper, ribbons and bows • Wrap gifts as you buy them to avoid doing it all at once, and hide them until the big day

GETTING YOURSELF READY Make your appointments early (hair, aesthetics, makeup, nails) to be sure you get the time slot you need • Shop for your party clothes and visit the tailor if adjustments are needed

Keep this checklist che handy to make sure you don’t forget f anything this season.
