Today I am thankful we celebrate the whole 12 days of Christmas, which actually start on Christmas Day! It seems a waste to me to spend a month or more preparing for just one or two days of celebrating. So I have embraced the whole 12 days.
For each day there is a small gift or an activity of some sort. The gift or tag with the activity written on the back are hidden each day for my son to find. Hunting for the gift/tag is part of the fun. We also have a Harry and David treat box with a little something for each day that the three of us share.
Most of the days are kept simple. Today is “Thank you” note day, a package of blank notes the gift for my son along with a trip to the local frozen yogurt place after we finish writing our thank you’s.
It is delightful to still have so much to look forward to these next nine days! I hope you can find small ways to continue your holiday fun!
