20 Christmas Journal Prompts for Adults & Youth

Do you take the time to write down the different things that make Christmas unique and memorable for your family? If not, don’t let another year go by without capturing those memories. It’s not too late to start a special Christmas Memories Journal that you can add to every year. You will be amazed at how fun it will be to go back and read old entries each year. We keep ours with our Christmas decorations and set it out at the time of “Decking the Halls.” By doing this we are sure not to forget to write in it and we get excited to sit down as a family to enjoy and laugh at some very funny and some very loving moments that we have had in the past. As I get older I envision my grand kids enjoying the stories of their parent’s past Christmases. Sometimes starting out can be a bit difficult so we have provided you a 20 different journal prompts for adults and 20 different journal prompts for the youth. We from Elite Online Publishing Wish You All a Very Merry Christmas and Happy Holidays!
