The Twelve Days of Christmas
If you've never celebrated the twelve days of Christmas or aren't even sure which days are the twelve days of Christmas, we invite you to learn and plan you're own twelve days of Christmas. we've tied informational links to each verse of the song, as well as provided some fun activities to do based on the 12 Days of Christmas song.

A Christmas Greeting
There was a time when the spirit of Christmas was of the present. There is a period when most of it is of the past. There shall come a day perhaps when all of it will be of the future. The child time, the present; the middle years, the past; old age, the future.

Looking Into the Manger
I love to let my imagination dwell upon that scene. Sometimes I think wayfarers may have gathered in the tavern hard by and with music and play sought to while away the hours as travellers have from time immemorial. Perhaps in some pause in their merriment, a strange cry of anguish, borne by the night wind from the rude shelter without, may have stopped their revelry for a moment and one may have asked of another: "What is that?"

On Christmas Giving
By looking at what Christmas is not or shouldn’t be, Cyrus Townsend Brady helps us discover what Christmas should be. The notion of Christmas spirit today is rather vague and seems to center on feeling a happy holidays cheeriness. If you’re looking for true Christmas spirit, let Brady point you to the starting place kneeling in worship of our Savior King.

Christmas Studies - Some additions to our Christmas Unit Study

Christmas Unit Study
You can choose any aspect of Christmas as your focus. There are resources for learning about Christmas trees, Christmas music, and Christmas traditions around the world. You'll find links to Christmas crafts, Christmas recipes, Christmas lesson plans, games, and activities. Pick a theme with your children and set them loose finding the things they want to do. In between activities pause for a little game of Elf Bowling or decorate your computer with Christmas themed wallpaper and icons.

Christmas Traditions Old and New
Christmas past, Christmas present, and Christmas future are all wrapped up in how we celebrate the birth of our savior Jesus Christ. Keeping old family traditions connects us with the past while creating our own Christmas traditions builds a bridge to the future. As one of our questionnaire respondents said, “I would love to hear other people's traditions, too!” It’s a great way to get new ideas to start new traditions in your family.
Christmas Stories for a Great Holiday

Witnessing the True Meaning of Christmas
As I was putting together the Christmas edition of the homeschool newsletter I write every month, I was lamenting to a friend of mine that we had very little news because everyone is so busy with Christmas preparations.

She said, to me, "But remember, Robin, this is Christmas! No news is the Good News!" With that reminder, I want to remind everyone to heed well the birth of Jesus and the spirit of Christmas.

History of Christmas
What is the history of Christmas? When did we start sending Christmas cards and why? Why candy canes? How did Santa Claus become part of Christmas?

Christmas Outsourcing
If I were of the world, I would not be having a great Christmas season this year. We are unfortunate victims of the recent outsourcing craze by large companies, and are currently undergoing what I call a purging season in our lives. While companies are downsizing their offices and outsourcing to other countries, we are likewise trying to downsize our lifestyle and spending, and outsource our financial needs to the real Source, making our lives simpler.

A Creative Unemployed Christmas
Christmas this year will be skosh for many Americans. Unemployment benefits are
running out for many just as Christmas arrives, but even with unemployment
benefits, families are paying bills not buying gifts. This is most difficult
with young children, not because they aren't happy with less, but because
parents want their early Christmases to be special. Going out and buying that
terrific toy is the standard American way of making Christmas special.
Unemployment however can make this impossible, and thus provide an opportunity
for something even more special creative Christmas.
