I absolutely love traditions when it comes to Christmas, and I've actually carried some of my traditions from growing up into my marriage and we will do them with our children one day!
So, sit back, grab a snack, and check out these five Christmas traditions you need to add to your Christmas celebrations this year!
1. ADDING A NEW ORNAMENT
3. READING THE CHRISTMAS STORIES
4. WHOLE FAMILY GET-TOGETHER
5. GO SEE CHRISTMAS LIGHTS
I hope that you will try out some of these traditions. If you do, please take a picture and tag me in it on social media. I am @gemusiclover on Instagram and Twitter, and I'd love to see your versions of these traditions!
Winter is an amazing season filled with amazing things. I wanted to compile a list of my top 10 favorite things about winter that make it my second favorite season, following fall! I hope you enjoy this Gif story.
1. CHRISTMAS MUSIC
I'm gonna Jingle Bell Rock Around The Christmas Time Is Here Comes Santa Baby It's Cold Outside all month!
2. WE CELEBRATE JESUS' BIRTHDAY!
I absolutely adore everything about Christmas, especially carols and re-tellings of Jesus' birthday. Even though most scholars agree that Jesus was probably born in the Spring, I still love celebrating his birth around this time each year!
3. THE FOOD OF THE SEASON
4. CHRISTMAS LIGHTS!
Listen. I'm in love with all of the Christmas light events happening this year. I want to go to all of them!
5. COOL WEATHER
Anything but snow, because it literally turns to ice in 2 hours where I live, and I'm not trying to fall!
6. GIVING GIFTS I KNOW THEY'LL LOVE
I've always LOVED giving gifts because it gives me the chance to show the people I love that I'm listening and really want to provide them with something they can use and will love for years to come!
7. HOT COCOA
Need I say more?
8. CHRISTMAS MOVIES
Don't worry, you can expect a TON of Christmas movie reviews and suggestions right here on TheOpinionatedOne.com OR on Twitter!
9. TONS OF GET-TOGETHERS
This time of year features tons of get-togethers for me at least. The hubby has a Christmas thing, I have two Christmas things, then we are going home to have even more Christmas things. So EXCITED!
The cold weather is the perfect time to snuggle with your favorite person, or animal.

Today is the first day of blogmas. That means that I will be posting a new Christmas-themed blog each day this month. After Christmas, I will continue to post through the month on topics about the New Year.
Today's blog post will be a Christmas bucket list. Here it is:
GO SEE CHRISTMAS LIGHTS
PURCHASE GIFTS FOR PEOPLE
WATCH A CHRISTMAS PARADE
HELP MOM DECORATE
HAVE A CHRISTMAS MOVIE MARATHON
Those are all of my main wishes for this holiday season. I hope you have a bucket list that you're checking off this year! See you tomorrow!
