A day late and a dollar short, that seems to be me right now! Here's the
three two-day Rudolph Day warning.
What's Rudolph Day? Here is the definition according to Organized Christmas:
A few years ago, members of our Christmas community began to observe "Rudolph Day" on the 25th of each month.On that day, we take a few moments to plan some simple tasks for the month ahead, in order to get ready for Christmas Day with plenty of time to spare. By starting early--and working a bit at a time on each month's Rudolph Day--it's easy to prepare for Christmas, save money on gifts, and cut holiday stress.
Here's the annual line-up with the sub-theme in parentheses:
January - Tie Up Loose Ends (gather ideas and organize your Christmas notebook)
February - Begin a Holiday Letter
March - Birthday Gift-Buying Strategy (party planning for the holiday season)
April - Plan Holiday Crafts
May - Catalog Shopping Tips
June - Recipe Round Up
July - Choose a Holiday Plan (Christmas in July celebration)
August - Craft Control (thinking ahead to Elf on the Shelf)
September - Prepare for Holiday Gifts and Giving
October - Plan Holiday Meals
November - Write Holiday Letter
The bottom line is...prepare for Christmas by doing something every month and make the 25th of each month a Rudolph Day by doing something Christmas-y! This month, it's time for some craft control - get those supplies organized and ready for any craft projects you plan to complete before Christmas. For those of you who have fun with the little guy or gal in the red suit, it's time to think about what mischief he or she will get up to in December.
Here's another reminder about the holiday plans and links to each one:

This month's movie is Christmas Story (not to be confused with A Christmas Story) so grab a copy, make some hot chocolate, and think all things Christmas for the day. Check back on the evening of August 25th to see how I celebrated Rudolph Day. UPDATE: Super busy weekend so postponed Rudolph Day until Wednesday. Check back on the evening of August 29th.
