One of our parishioners called me a day or two before Christmas to ask me how our family celebrates the Twelve Days of Christmas. I told her that we really try to make the most of the feast by having a treat or doing something fun each day to make this time special. Since our children are small, I try to keep things as low key as I can. We took some time to bake cookies today, we've been reading our Christmas books (including two new ones I ordered thanks to a recommendation from Grace's annual Christmas book post) as well as a bit from Little Man's new Paddington book, done some special crafts, taken baths with special soap, played with our lovely new Christmas toys, and are eating lots of fun treats (look at that Goldfish bread that we found!).
That being said, I loved the post that Carrie wrote entitled Ideas to Celebrate Christmastide. I'd really like to use Carrie's post as a framework to plan for our own Christmastide. It would be nice to have our celebrations based on the Church Calender, rather than random activities.
What are your plans during the 12 Days of Christmas?
