12 Days of Christmas

When my sister & I were younger, for several years we received 'The 12 Days of Christmas' on our front porch.

Each morning, we would open the front door, and there would be a little bag that said 'To the Flett Girls.'

They were fun gifts, like alien pencil toppers, googly eyes, pipe cleaners, origami paper, jingle bells, and bouncing balls. On the 12th Day, we always got 12 frozen burritos (we loved burritos!). Those didn't fit in the bag, of course. For years, we couldn't figure out who was doing it. Eventually, as most children do, we figured out it was our dad.

I've always wanted to do that for my child. Next Christmas, our son will be 2 years old. I hope to start this tradition for him, as well. This Christmas, I will be giving him 'The 12th Day of Christmas' bag, with 12 frozen burritos (of course!), and a bunch of other little odds & ends (chocolate covered coffee beans, tiny parachute men, candy canes, & car air fresheners, to name a few).

If you know someone who is alone for Christmas, this can be a fun way to brighten their Christmas season!

Thanks to Nanci Ailinger for sending in this gift idea

I like this story because it talks about everyone gets gifts on Christmas and people care about other people that doesn't get to have a good Christmas. Merry Christmas.

I think this looks so fun! I would love to do it with my four kids, however I don't really want to encourage the "spirit of getting". So instead, I am going to let each of my children pick a neighbor or older person from church, and we'll leave each of them the 12 Days of Christmas as a surprise. I my kiddos will love it, esp. with all the mystery!!

Hi. I was just thinking when I was 12 I sewed stuff for my mom including a purse, a teddy, a paper christmas tree topper. It was really beautiful and she loved it. I'm planning to do this for my daughter, she's 13. I'm not sure what to make her. Any ideas?
Thank you
