Sorry, nothing to add because that is an extensive list.

To newbie December Daily people, let me emphasize these are SUGGESTIONS, not a list that you have to cover.

This list is open to anybody! Even if you don't do December Daily you can still use this list for journaling prompts on layouts.

These are great! I'm adding them to my DD list. I think my project will turn out to be a mix of DD and Journal your Christmas.

Although I don't create a DD or JYC, a few suggestions:

Elf on the Shelf mischief
Christmas Caroling
Christmas Collections (e.g. villages, nutcrackers, snowmen, nativities)
Christmas Programs (e.g. school, church, community)
Holiday Symphony
The Nutcracker (youth or pro ballet performance)
Lighting the Tree Ceremony (e.g. at home, community event)
Colors of the Season (e.g. weather, decorations)
Christmas Pajamas
What I love most about the Christmas holiday...
Christmas Eve Traditions (e.g. church service, opening one gift, Santa)
Our world this Christmas (current events around the globe or in your country, state, community, &/or family)

What is this DD mean. Do you do a page of some of these ideas. I started a Christmas album and do like 15 pages a year just during december and like a couple of years fit in each album. Do you add all these on one page. Someone please explain this. Is the thankful album the same way. Cool ideas but I don't get it I'm new to this site. Thanks you all

It stands for December Daily. It's an album, often a mini album, documenting the 25 days leading up to Christmas. There are different versions, but it is often associated with Ali Edwards. It can take on whatever form or theme you'd like. Some people scrap their traditions, for instance. Some just do their daily lives or activities that are related to the season.

Love these ideas! I don't do December Daily, but my Christmas album (ongoing) is seriously lacking in creative pages!

Love it!

I would add Christmas movies to the list as a possible suggestion. Also if a family does something charitable (like buying some food and taking it to the food pantry) that would be another great idea.
