Blogmas 2018 - Day 26 - My Christmas Bucket List Update

To finish up the Christmas season I thought I should post an update of my Christmas 2018 Bucket List and I had planned on doing it as Day 26 of my Blogmas 2018 series. As you can see, I didn't make, so here goes...Day 26 of Blogmas 2018 almost a month late...(and some of you may not agree)...but better late than never! (At least I'm getting caught up!) 😉

(Note: Clicking on highlighted words will link you to posts where you can read more about that subject should you be interested in doing so.)

That's what was on my Christmas 2018 bucket list. What was on yours? If you wrote a Christmas bucket list, I'd love to read it. Feel free to post the link to it in the comments section below!

Until next time...


  1. You accomplished A LOT on your Christmas bucket list. Sadly, I can't even remember if I made one (probably not). Going through all my paper stuff over here.

  2. Thanks, Jean! I can't remember if you posted one, either. Have fun sorting through your paper stuff. I'm still just trying to figure things out on this end. Kind of in a lull right now, I guess. LOL! Have a great day! <3

  3. I really didn't have a bucket list, but that's a great idea. Especially the gifting of a needy child or even the mail carrier. I may just have to write one next Christmas. Thanks for the great idea!

  4. You're welcome, Kristina! And, yes, they were great ideas, but, did you notice, I failed to do, either. :( Perhaps next year! :) Blessings, my friend! Hope you're having a wonderful day! <3
