i found this list of 25 christmas challenges today and thought i would pass them on...

christmas is the best time to refocus after all.

25 christmas challenges...

* go out of your way-- befriend someone today that needs a friend and follow through to christmas
* tell someone you love them
* make a tree decoration that will remind you of Christ
* in your prayers today, give thanks for every blessing without asking for anything
* try to be as kind as possible to others today
* try not to quarrel with family members today
* do a good deed anonymously
* make goals for yourself-- seal a copy in an envelope to be opened in a year
* visit someone sick or lonely or sad
* do volunteer work for some worthy cause
* do something fun for a child or younger sibling
* try to forgive someone who has wronged you and be reconciled
* make a "give list" instead of a list of gifts you'd like
* improve yourself in some way to please the Savior
* quietly reflect and choose uplifting activities vs. shopping
* phone or send a card to an old friend or family member
* listen to Handel's Messiah
* make a christmas treat for someone else
