Start bedtime routine as usual, while one parent makes bags of popcorn and hot cocoa and places them in the car, dont forget to have Christmas music to play!

Each evening when goodnight is said, take off one ring and jump in bed. When only the star is left to shine, then you know it's Christmastime.
