12 Days of Christmas and Epiphany

Now that baby Jesus had been born, tomorrow starts the journey of the wise men. In our home they will be traveling 12 Days and we will celebrate their arrival on epiphany.

During each day of their journey we will also learn more about Christ through the 12 names of Jesus ornaments and the book, What Nick and Holly Found in Grandpa’s Attic. This will be our 12 Days of Christmas this year.

Each day at supper (with daddy), we will read one page from our book and hang the corresponding ornament on our table top tree. I love this burlap wrapped tree, I hardly paid anything for it since I found it at goodwill last year! The book will stay on our table ready to go for the evening.

The ornaments themselves also come with a devotional. This year we will most likely just use the book What Nick and Holly Found in Grandpa’s Attic. One way we may do it in the future, is read one at lunch and one at supper with daddy, this would help reinforce the message.

I am hoping to also incorporate the corresponding scripture memory cd  Adore Him with the corresponding song for each day. I am thinking we will listen to it either during bible time or before bedtime or first thing in the morning.

Merry Christmas! May your wise men have a safe and fulfilling journey on their travels to find the one true king!
