Last year, I really enjoyed the Preparing for Nativity series I began on December 1st, so I've decided to do it again!
We are starting out our preparations with a BANG! Fr John and I picked up the materials necessary to build a mantle yesterday, and have begun the project today. I think that Fr John will have the majority of the work of putting it together done tonight, so I imagine that we'll have it all finished by the end of the week. It will be so exciting to hang our stockings this Christmas! Hopefully, I'll be able to take some pictures soon - sadly, I dropped the camera last night and broke the lens:(
It is always so exciting to do a new project in the house! Can't wait to see pictures!
Can't wait to see pics!
How do you celebrate the 12 days of Christmas? We plan on celebrating it this year but I don't want to give a present each day, kwim?
I'm curious to see the pictures. I don't do anything for Christmas before Saint Nicholas has passed, as that is the Belgian tradition. We did buy the tree, but have not yet put it up.
We celebrate the 12 Days by taking special trips (we want to take the little ones to NYC and we have a couple family parties), doing Christmas-y things (like baking cookies, putting together a gingerbread house, decorating ornaments, etc.), and a maximum of three gifts (small ones!) spread out during the 12 days). HTH!!
