Kids! Are you too excited to sit still? Is your head filled with visions of the jolly man who will be visiting your home Monday night? Do your parents keep encouraging you to go outside and play just for a little bit please.

Adults! Are you looking for something to gobble up a few hours of pre-Christmas mania (yours, the kids’)? Does the idea of a little quality family time sound like the perfect Christmas Eve activity? Are you itching to get out and about and start celebrating the heck out of this holiday?

Then this is for you! It’s The Daily Sentinel’s Sparkly Christmas Super Scavenger Extravaganza! (It’s a scavenger hunt, for those who don’t speak Pinterest.)

Find all the items on the scavenger list, then scurry straight to the kitchen and reward yourself with a giant mug of cocoa and at least four cookies. And have a very merry Christmas!
