I am so excited to share this winter bucket list! With less than a week until Christmas (and Hanukkah starting in a few days) I’m sure everyone has done lots of holiday traditions and activities. Unfortunately, for those of us that live in the snowier states winter will continue on for at least another two months. The dark and short (but thankfully getting longer!) days are cold and boring.
I personally really struggle with the winter blues. February is generally the toughest month for me. It’s a good thing it’s such a short month. March typically signals the end of the cold and wet. Getting through January and February can be a chore so I wanted to share what helps make my winter a little more bearable.
This winter bucket list is short enough that you can make it a goal to check off all the activities by the end of the winter! Pick a day of the week that you’ll schedule the bucket list activity for and then watch the cold days fly by. I did my best to pick non-holiday themed activities, that way you can start now but continue on into the New Year.
Some of my favorite winter activities are the ones that actually don’t require going outside. Curling up with hot chocolate, tea, or cider and a good book is definitely one of my favorite cold day activities. However, it is important to get outside sometimes too and planning a weekend activity with the family will keep the winter from feeling too gloomy.
I hope this winter bucket list makes the colder months more fun!
