Holiday Timetable

by Marilyn Moll, co-author of The 12 Week Holiday Planner

Christmas decorations For many of us, planning Christmas festivities such as shopping, cooking, baking, gift making, and hospitality can automatically cause a great degree of anxiety. We at The Urban Homemaker don’t advocate complicated or expensive holiday celebrations, and wish to encourage your family to focus on the true meaning of the holiday season. To do so while making preparations for the upcoming holidays, this twelve-week simplified timetable could be used as a checklist and is designed to be flexible in order to assist you.

Remember, the timetable is merely a suggestion; rearrange, add, or delete activities from the schedule to meet the needs of your family.

The full version of the timetable is available in an ebook written by Sheri Graham. It is filled with recipes, tips, crafts, decorations, charts, devotionals, and much more. The full 170 page The 12 Week Holiday Planner ebook is available in PDF (free sample download available at the site).

Enjoy, and please let us know how it works out. We would love to have your feedback!
