We’ve been counting down to Christmas with Random Acts of Christmas Kindness for a couple years now, and I have to say it has been amazing for our family! This list of 25 random acts of Christmas can be used as an idea list, inspiration list or a checklist of acts of kindness to try this holiday season.
Random Acts of Christmas Kindness
We are excited to do acts of kindness for kids again this year because it’s been such a great way to slow down during the Christmas season and focus on the joy of giving, rather than just receiving during the holiday season.
