February Rudolph Day is coming

Saturday is February Rudolph Day!

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 (if there is one) 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 Christmasy!

This is the year I plan for Rudolph Day each month - I have a planner, there's no excuse not to get organized!

Check back on the evening of February 25th to see how I celebrated Rudolph Day.


  1. Our Christmas Club meeting in January zeroed in on tying up those loose ends. I posted about it if you want to check it out. For February's meeting, which I missed, one of the members was going to walk them through creating a photo Christmas card online. I haven't heard a report so have no update as to what else they might have done.

    1. Thanks! I just read your post and left a comment. I'm not sure my comments are coming through - I keep getting a delivery status failure message so I'm going to have to check that out with someone who knows what to check!

    2. Hi Pamela!

      For whatever reason, your comments on either blog don't come to my email as they should. I periodically check the comments moderation page for both blogs so I catch them then. There are one or two other bloggers that have the same thing happen with their comments on my blog -- they just don't come to my email for whatever reason. All is well, as long as I remember to check that comments moderation page frequently!

  2. I think that perhaps I am the newest fan of Rudolph Day. It's terribly ingenious and I can't wait till this Saturday to celebrate! I hope you have a wonderful week!
