Twelve Days of Christmas: Dec 28 The Feast of the Innocents

Some simple ways to hold the joy of Christmas through the 12 days of Christmas…. until twelfth night (January 6).

When Herod realized that he had been outwitted by the Magi, he was furious, and he gave orders to kill all the boys in Bethlehem and its vicinity who were two years old and under, in accordance with the time he had learned from the Magi.— Matthew 2:16

Ideas: Pray specifically for world leaders. Unobtrusively make a gesture of peace toward someone you know, in the spirit of loving those you don’t find easy to love. Deliver a basket of goodies for a shut in or care provider. In this time of covid isolation, check i on someone who may be alone. Read an account of refugee children. Bring love to light and life in conversation.

song suggestion: Sweet little Jesus Boy

The Twelve Days of Christmas. Dec 25 Christmas Day

Christmastide (December 25th – January 6th) is about the gradual departure of darkness and the gentle dawning of light at Epiphany. We don’t have to cram all of Christmas into one day. At Christmastide, we shed the pressure of “the holidays” and how we always do things, and take on a new, relaxed rhythm of celebration. Kinder. Quirkier. And at the same time somehow more traditional.

Keep the Christmas joy.
Ideas: Take photos, casual and posed to look at over the 12 days.

Save a present to open on the evening of January 5th, Twelfth Night, to mark the end of Christmastide.

A Christmas Video 1.35 minutes. you will be amazed with the photography.
