Use these Christmas journal prompts as a way to explore your personal feelings about Christmas.
One of my favorite things about Christmas is taking time to record Christmas memories in my journal; writing about special things that happened and how I felt about the day.
The holidays can sometimes be an emotional time so journaling my feelings helps to create a balanced overview of the holidays; exploring the negative aspects as well as the positive.
Use this list of 25 Christmas journal prompts as a way to explore your own personal feelings about Christmas and for recording your own Christmas memories.
For a writing journal, you could use a plain writing journal or notebook, or you could use a more creative method such as this printable Christmas Planner and Memory Journal to keep a permanent record of events.
I’ve even made a free printable Christmas Journal Prompts page that you can download and use for convenient reference.
