20 things you can do to make sure you enjoy Christmas in Calgary

20 things you can do to make sure you enjoy Christmas in Calgary

This list is in no particular order. It's up to you on what are your top priorities. I suggest doing at least 10.



  1. Pay it forward and buy someone a coffee
  2. Drive around neighbourhoods and check out Christmas lights on display
  3. Take the family to Zoo Lights (Dress warm)
  4. Sit down in front of your Christmas Tree with a coffee (Bailey's optional) and listen to Christmas music
  5. Go see a Christmas Carol at Theatre Calgary
  6. Go see the Christmas lights at confederation park
  7. Call a friend or family member you haven't spoken to in a while
  8. Remember your loved ones that you have lost
  9. Spend quite time with your spouse
  10. Snuggle your kids for a couple minutes longer than you normally would
  11. Write a letter to Santa with your kids
  12. Watch at least 3 Christmas Cartoons (i.e. Charlie Brown Christmas, Alvin and his Golden Yellow Harmonica, Rudolf the Red Nose Reindeer)
  13. Watch at least 3 Christmas Movies (i.e. Bing Crosby's White Christmas, Charles Dickens A Christmas Carol, It's a Wonderful Life)
  14. Take your time wrapping Christmas presents
  15. Try and get to a Christmas market
  16. Go on a Sleigh Ride
  17. Do a little Christmas Baking
  18. Put at least one Christmas decoration in your office (even if your office is a vehicle)
  19. Wear a Santa hat at least one day
  20. Smile (A LOT!)
  21. BONUS ONE - WEAR THE UGLIEST CHRISTMAS SWEATER YOU CAN FIND! Trust me, if this doesn't make you and at least a couple other people smile you're all scrooges!! 🙂

It's up to you to make it the best Christmas possible. No one can make you enjoy Christmas but yourself. No matter how bad things are, only you can make it better. Sometimes it's as simple as telling someone "Merry Christmas" or a phone call to a long lost friend.


Merry Christmas Everyone! You have now had a complete stranger say Merry Christmas to you and I feel GREAT! 🙂
