Lets get into the Christmas-sy mood! Its nearly December so here is my first list of Christmas things to do!
Fill a shoe box with Samaritans purse
It has become a yearly tradition for me and my mum to fill a shoe box (or two) for Samaritans purse. The charity send the shoe box of gifts to children in 3rd world countries. You are advised to pack a tooth brush, tooth paste, a bar of soap and a small toy along with sweets and maybe stationary. http://www.operationchristmaschild.org.uk/

Do some crafts
Try to make some gifts and decorations this year! You could make Christmas crackers, Sew some bunting or make a snow globe. If you want to make a gift why not put ingredients for ginger bread men or brownies in a box with instructions, make a frame and draw a picture to go inside or decorate a jar turning it into a tea light holder!
Sing up some joy
Why not go carolling, watch a carolling service or just listen to some carols on-line singing along. Everybody loves carolling and you could combine carolling with fundraising by getting a collection bucket.
Watch a light switch on
Why not go to a local light switch on. I am going to one in Manchester tonight. Where is your local light switch on.
Have a merry day out
Have a day some where. Your local Christmas market or a local theme park that is having a 'Christmas land' Gulliver's world in Warrington has a huge grotto with moving animals 'best in UK', Christmas cookie making with Mrs. Claus, train rides, the usual rides, Elf School, Fake snow and a pantomime. Winter Wonderland in Hyde Park London is also back with Zippos circus, Rides, an ice rink and more. Or you could go to a local reindeer farm!
Go on a walk!
Go on a winter wildlife walk spotting robins and Christmas trees.
Cook some spirit

Spread the love
We like to wrap up things such as socks, gloves and home-made Xmas cake and give it to the homeless around Manchester. The joy you create is amazing.
Have a happy November/December
