Twelve Days of Christmas
Amber, One of the mom-stuff team members has posted her version of the 12 Days of Christmas to share with other moms. If you are looking for some cleaver gift ideas you would love this.
Last year I decided I wanted to bring some joy to a family's life that I knew was struggling due to the troubled economy. Everybody needs a little bit of cheer all the time but especially at Christmas. I focused on family time to bring some joy to this family each evening. This is my version of the Twelve Days of Christmas.
My version of the 12 days of Christmas is very different than the original version. I took a variety of poems and printed them out on Christmas stationary.
To use my format buy stationary with printing across the top as in a header. I then bought or made an item that goes along with each poem I have listed. The items I used are listed next to each poem title. I put each item into a Christmas sack with the tag tied with curly ribbon. Each day I would deliver the poem and the item to the family's house. My hope was to create a family bonding time for each of the 12 days before Christmas and add some Christmas JOY. I hope you will enjoy this and have a Merry Christmas.
The 12 poems are listed below by clicking on each one it will take you to the actual poem
A Parent's Night Before Christmas With this poem I also included a variety of packages of batteries and I also put $100.00 in with the batteries with a note that said I hope this helps make Christmas a little less stressful.
Legend of Christmas Stockings On this day I bought Christmas Stockings both kinds the ones that are for Christmas eve and also Christmas socks for each of the family members feet.
The Legend of the Christmas Spider This is one of my favorite Christmas stories and has been apart of my life since I was a little girl. We have always had a gold spider sitting in the center of our Christmas tree. For this gift we made a gold spider similar to the one I had growing up to pass on the tradition my family loved so much.
Under Santa's Hat With this story I bought each of them a Santa hat and also some snack foods cheese and crackers with a summer sausage with Eggnog.
