Just curious what others do.

We have a lot going on the 26-31 so I plan on continuing my album until the 31st.

Mine goes from Thanksgiving to Christmas.

The only thing I have to document from the 26th to the 31st is 3 bickering kids.

Last year I did from Thanksgiving until Dec 31st - it was way to much time. THis year I did just Dec 1-25 and I'm enjoying it so much more

Just one more post!

I like to do the whole month; it's fun to include New Year's Eve and maybe some intentions for the coming year.

The first year I continued past Dec 25 since we were still doing Christmas related things until the 27th. I was going to continue until NYE, but by the 27th I was done. Since then, even though we usually do a lot of things between Christmas and NYE, I just end it on the 25th.

1-25 for me. I like doing the book as a lead-up to Christmas, so for me it feels right to end on the 25th.

Plus, I like to have it done by NYE, so that I can start the year fresh with new projects (usually organizing)

And I do PL, so any fun daily stuff that last week can just go in there.

I have seen some great DD's that run from Thanksgiving to NYE though! I just know that would be too big of a project for me, and decrease my odds of finishing!

I'm just doing 1-25. If we do anything interesting after the 25th, I may just add it in the back.

The whole month, since my album is more of a journal for December, than a lead up to Christmas, it works best for me to do the entire month.

It just depends on what I have going on. A few years, I did all 31 days. Last year I stopped at 25.

We started holiday stuff on the 29th of November, so that is when our album is starting this year. I want to include New Year's Eve traditions, so I'll likely just take it to the end of the year.

I create mine for the 25 days then I have a section that covers any christmas events divided from the 25 days. It includes Santa photos, Nutcracker photo ... anything that happened in November and then I'll include if we go to the zoo for the lights after the 25th. ... I'll probably just add the photos and not the journaling and so forth.

Mine is part of project life so I intend doing the whole month but as I have been sick most of the month this far it is a bit of a struggle

I document the whole month because I do more Christmas-y things during that week between Christmas and New Years than the days before Christmas. I see more people to exchange gifts etc.
But I am not scrapping those days in 'real time'.

In 2009 I went through to Dec 31 because my dd's were home from school so I could include photos of them doing things like skiing etc.

The last one I did in 2011 I started on Thanksgiving because we hosted the holiday and had a lot going on with all 3 dd's plus a college friend over that weekend. I ended on Dec 25 mostly because I was ready to call it done.

This year I started photos on Dec 1, but haven't decided how long to continue it. I would certainly do it to the end of the month if there was a lot going on (I don't do PL so it is a chance to include some of that daily stuff too.)
