I know winter is still not officially till the 22th December, but it already feels very much there, and the festive season has already started, so I decided to post this a bit earlier! As you know, winter is probably my least favourite season, but it does have some things that I love, mainly the festive spirit of Christmas and end-of-year holidays, as well as all the possibilities and motivation brought by the new year ahead.
I posted a Summer and an Autumn bucket list already, so I thought it would be nice to have one for winter as well. The point of them is not really to check everything off, but mainly to have some ideas for how to enjoy these seasons, make the most of them, and make them memorable.

How did Autumn go?
Well, luckily my trip to Canada was the perfect occasion to check off a bunch of things nature-related, like to go on a walk in nature or check out the foliage. In Brussels though, I didn’t do much that required to be outside, like going to a museum, but I did make homemade popcorn with maple syrup and cinnamon, and spent many hours curling up with a blanket and book, with an autumnal candle nearby.
I also ate a lot of pumpkin-based dishes and watched autumnal episodes of Gilmore Girls – for a perfect cosy evening – as well as a scary movie, which wasn’t so scary (we watched Wounds on Netflix). While we did plan on watching an old movie too, we just didn’t get around to doing it.
Overall, I loved this season and feel like this little list really encouraged me to make every moment a bit more special, which is what I wanted out of it to begin with!
Winter bucket list
Now, here’s my Winter bucket list, with a mix of festive and Christmassy items, as well as more New-Year-specific activities:
