6 - Bake! Bake a ginger bread city, a mountain of mince pies or a rich and sticky yule log. Fill your house with the smell of it. Then give your baking to friends, strangers and the homeless.
7 - Hang out with some kids. No-one does Christmas like kids. Don't be scared to be a kid yourself.
8 - Make a date with your bed and a book. If you can do it with someone, there are few things more delicious and intimate than just lying in bed with someone, reading and being together.
9 - Go to a Carol Service, and sing like no-one's listening.
10 - Invest in a Onesie. It's time.
11 - Moisturise. This isn't so much an idea as just great advice, no-one wants winter lizard skin.
12 - Make a fort!
13 - Buy fabulous underwear, stockings are compulsory. Turn up the heating, and wear only fabulous underwear.
14 - See the people you havn't seen in too long.
15 - Listen to music your grandparents liked when they were your age.
16 - Perfect a crazily extravagant hot chocolate recipe. Squirty cream, flakes, chocolate chips, marshmallows, bits of leftover christmas pudding...
17 - Attempt to cook a full christmas dinner for your friends. Hint: Roast potatoes take freaking forever to cook!
18 - Sit in a coffee shop, pretend to read a book and people watch to your heart's content. Make up stories about the people you see.
19 - Make a collage of pictures from your summer.
20 - Watch festive films from your childhood - The Snowman, Home Alone, Father Christmas etc...
21 - Volunteer. A soup kitchen, a charity shop, an animal sanctuary. There a lot of people and animals who could use some care at this time of year.
22 - Write a letter. A love letter, a thankyou letter, an apology letter, even if its to someone who lives near-by. Get a festive stamp.
23 - Have a board games night. Cranium and backgammon are my favourites.
24 - Go sledging. No sledge? A tray or bin lid will do. No hill? Grab some string, a friend and pull each other.
25 - Help an elderly neighbour by offering to clear their drive-way of snow. Serious karma points.
26 - Learn the winter constellations. Wrap up at night, go outside and spot them.
27 - A stuck record, I know... but excercise. Its just good for you. Make it wintery if you like; indoor skiing?
28 - Find an animal, preferably furry. Pet it.
29 - Go away for the weekend. Edinburgh is great in the winter, so is Paris, so is York, so are the dales...
30 - Build a snow man. BUILD A SNOW LION. Have a snowball fight, get soaking wet, have a hot bath.
31 - Go the the ballet. For me, nothing beats The Nutcracker at this time of year.
32 - Go see a panto if that's more your thing.
33 - Read up on and learn some quotations from someone amazing. My favourites include Oscar Wilde, Salvador Dali, Lewis Carroll and Bob Dylan. Who are yours?
34 - Take the time to write. A story, a poem, a letter (wait, didn't we already do that one?), a blog. It is good for your mind and for your heart. Especially if you do it with pen and paper, and not on a computer.
35 - Take vitamins. Again, just standard, good advice.
36 - Write a list of 10 great things that happened to you this year. Then write 10 great things you want to do in 2012.
37 - Learn to play a christmas song. Even if you don't already play an instrument, I defy anyone to not be able to learn Jingle Bells on the Recorder!
38 - Learn to knit, and do something worthwhile with the results!
39 - Actually write thankyou cards this year. I know you always mean to, now actually do it!
40 - Give someone a big fat cuddle. It doesn't matter who, never under estimate the power of physical contact!
Any other ideas for great stuff to do?
