Christmas journal prompts

Christmas themed


As if I could let an opportunity pass to combine my journal love with my Christmas love.

If you’ve been following me for any length of time you’ll know that I adore Christmas and that my Journal prompts have become a monthly feature.

The seasonal Perfect Autumn Journal Prompts were very popular and I hope that the Christmas ones will be as well.


Why a Christmas prompt?

Well why not?

This time of year is so busy, in fact probably the busiest time of the year.

We put so much pressure on ourselves to make the whole season perfect, that often we forget to make time for ourselves.

As I’ve said before, keeping a journal is a great way to take 5 minutes for ourselves to focus on ourselves and our thoughts.

This time of year is even more important. It can give us a break but I hope with the prompts I’ve selected, it’ll provide some focus.

  4. Oh, I love this. Every year I make a December Daily mini scrapbook with all the fun things we do in the month of December. This will be perfect to add to it! I added it to my December Daily board on Pinterest. Thank you!

  5. Wow, there are some things on there I would never have thought of yet, like the baking. But it’s good to have a reminder so I can start planning now. I tend to leave everything to the last minute haha!

  6. These are great Christmas journal prompts, I’ve fallen out of the journaling habit and need to get back into it. This is my favorite time of year but it always ends up being so stressful so these could be helpful for slowing down a bit.

  7. I don’t keep a journal, but I love answering questions: I’ve finished my Christmas shopping, decorations never go up before the 1st of Advent, and the best Christmas movie ever is the Muppets Christmas Carol. Of course.

  8. I think that Christmas journal prompts are a great idea! They keep you mindful about the holidays what you are doing, why you are doing it and who you are doing things for.
