A bucket list is a list of things you want to do before you die
The name bucket list comes from the expression “kicking the bucket” which means “to die”. (It is not clear where exact “kicking the bucket” originated from). It has long been a tradition for people to make bucket lists, writing down the things they would like to do in their lives. This can be things like making a world trip, start a study of climb Mount Everest. The idea is that you tick off all the things on your bucket list before you die.
