12 Days of Christmas Ideas and Printable

12 days of Christmas ideas and free printable

You know what Christmas song I really don’t like — I don’t care to listen to it, and I especially don’t like singing — is?

The 12 Days of Christmas. I know, bah-humbug. But it’s such a long song, and it’s really not that exciting. I mean, half the song is about birds…and I don’t really love birds.

However, I do love doing the 12 Days of Christmas to people, and even being the recipient. A few times growing up, our ward at church would organize a 12 Days of Christmas — anyone that wanted to participate would sign up and get matched with another family and anonymously leave small gifts or treats for 12 days. It was always so fun to try and catch the people, or to go drop off treats and get away before the other family caught us!

It’s also always such a great experience to do the 12 Days of Christmas to a family in need. While we aren’t the position to be able to do that right now, I look forward to doing it in the future. I know of several people who have been the rrecipientsof the 12 Days of Christmas, who may not have had much of a Christmas otherwise,
