This post is an update on last year’s Advent and Christmastide resources for celebrating the essence of the festivities from home. I know many people will still be home based for Christmas 2021, whether that’s due to energy limiting chronic illness (ELCI), shielding, lockdown or other reasons.

For a fuller explanation see this post.

You have to wait for the actual day to open each window with this version. If you want to plan ahead, see the shopping list and document versions below.

Celebrating Advent 2021

In this document are some suggestions to help you experience all the Christmas feels in your own home, embracing old traditions and adding in some new ones as daily, micro celebrations.

You can print this document and cut up each day’s suggestions to put inside a DIY calendar.

Advent activities shopping list

If you’re going to follow daily drink and food suggestions from the online or printable activities this is what you need to buy. If you don’t have lots of these items to start with, it may be too much to buy them just for this, so probably best to concentrate on the Basics.

Suggested playlists

To listen to the music I suggest.

Advent poems

Print out these poems and put them inside your DIY Advent Calendar.

Celebrating 12 Days of Christmastide 2021

This year might be short on social gatherings and festive events over the main Christmas days, so this document contains some suggestions to help you embrace old traditions and add in some new ones as daily, micro celebrations of the 12 days of Christmastide.

You can print this document and cut up each day’s suggestions to put inside a DIY calendar.

NB this is the same resource as last year.

Suggested books

Some of the cocktails are from Drinking with Saint Nick: Christmas Cocktails for Sinners and Saints by Michael P Foley

Fodmap Traffic Light Cocktail Printables

Cocktail recipes coded by the types of sugars in them.

Pinterest inspiration

I often get a Christmassy buzz just from looking at other peoples’ festive pins over on Pinterest. In the past decade I’ve pinned over 1600 Christmas themed images, often with no intention of recreating the physical item myself.
