Monday: Weekly Family Activity—Twelve Days of Christmas

December 1st, 2008 in Monday: Weekly Family Activity

One of my fondest Christmas memories was seven years ago when I recruited my fiance and family to join me in a Twelve Days of Christmas project. What I did was pick a friend who I thought needed some extra love sent her way. We secretly left a little something on her door every night to for twelve days until Christmas.

On the first day of Christmas, my true love sent to me
A partridge in a pear tree.
2nd Two turtle doves
3rd Three French hens
4th Four calling birds
5th Five golden rings
6th Six geese a-laying
7th Seven swans a-swimming
8th Eight maids a-milking
9th Nine ladies dancing
10th Ten lords a-leaping
11th Eleven pipers piping
12th Twelve drummers drumming

For this particular family I did not do things that went along with the actual themes for the twelve days of Christmas although I did leave tags with the song on them. We gave them things we knew they were in need of or things her little girls wanted from Santa J If you are interested in having it go along with the song more check out these great links:

Your family will have a fantastic time doing this. Choose someone you know or maybe don’t know to well that you think needs some extra joy this holiday season.
