24 Days of Togetherness Carrots N Cake

New to this 24 Days of Togetherness stuff? Here’s the story of how this tradition came to be, but, basically, it’s a holiday bucket list of 24 festive activities that you do together with your partner, family, or friends during the holiday season. Each day, leading up to Christmas, you randomly pick one thing to do together. (We write each one on a piece of paper and then put them all in a box.) It’s a fun surprise and a little something to look forward to each day. Plus, it’s a great way to slow down and really enjoy the hectic holiday season together. Our little family looks forward to 24 Days of Togetherness all year long!

So what do you put on your list? Well, anything you want! The more personalized and specific it is to you and your partner/family/friends, the better because it’s all about spending time together and enjoying each other’s company doing what you enjoy most. Just to give you an idea what we’ve done in previous years, here are our lists:

A few things to note + fun variations:

  • The activities can range from something simple like ‘drink eggnog’ to something more involved like ‘buy and decorate a Christmas tree.’ And these activities can change from year-to-year depending on time, interest, and dynamics (i.e. a new baby).
  • The first two years, Mal and I randomly picked activities to do together each day. However, last year, we planned them out a little more because Quinn was so young and we didn’t have the same flexibility that we did in the past (i.e. ‘go out for a cocktail together.’) This is totally okay and worked great for us at the time. This year though we are going back to the random daily draws, but do what works best for you!
  • Mal and I typically make our list together, but, to switch things up, we thought of 12 must-do activities together and then each separately made up 6 of our own to give this year’s mix a bigger element of surprise! (We decided if we both picked the same things, we’ll either do it twice or improvise with something different that day.)

We made our list for 2015 yesterday, and I’ll be sure to share our experiences over the next few weeks, so stay tuned to see what this year’s 24 Days of Togetherness is all about. And, if you decide to participate, I’d love to see how you and your family spend time together this season. If you share on social media, please tag your post with #24daystogether!
