Halloween is over and Christmas will be here before we know it.

The photo above is our family Christmas card photo from 2018. I love my crazy family, especially during the holidays.

A few years ago, I participated in a 25 Days of Christmas scrapbooking challenge. I took 25 pictures (one for each day) in December and made a separate scrapbook page for each one.

I lost the book I made when we had our house fire 5 years ago, but I still remember how much fun it was to document our Christmas traditions we participated in with our family.

So this year, I want to encourage you to do a 25 Days of Christmas Photo Challenge. You don’t need to make the pictures into a scrapbook, although you can if you want to.

The main point of the challenge is to slow down during the holidays and take photos that remind you what the season is all about. You can do this whether or not you have children at home.

I will give you 25 days worth of prompts, and you can do them in whichever order you want. No rules, just take photos (starting December 1) and enjoy your holiday season.

Here we go!
