We started a tradition a few years ago of doing things for the 12 days of Christmas. This has become our favorite time of the year! We spend time together doing fun things and the kids learn valuable planning and time management skills without even realizing it! Bonus for this homeschooling mom!
Our main 3 ingredients for our exciting 12 days are: Crafts, Movies, and Food. We have something we make or do together every day and watch a movie together. The kids are the main planners and I just help get it organized and buy the necessary items for all of our projects.
Check out my Winter Pinterest Board for some great ideas for food and crafts!
Here is a calendar to help you plan what you want to do for each day. You only need to print the first page so be sure to change the printer settings. I'd delete the extra 2 pages but I haven't figured out how yet.

Another thing I plan to do is to put all of my Christmas recipes in a binder (and crafts if we plan to do the same ones again) that will go in the Christmas storage boxes. I'm putting our Christmas movies in there as well so I don't have to hunt them down next year.
For menu planning during Christmas, I'm using this awesome menu planner I found on Pinterest! http://www.homemadebycarmona.com/menu-planner/
Since you can customize the pages, I was able to easily create a Christmas page (or pages but who's counting).
I'll get pictures and more up soon but I wanted to get this out to all of you while you could still use it this year. :-)
