I am going for the simple look this year and using the jokes, facts and verses from the boys advent boxes.
Day 2 looked at the weather, so I used one of my crocheted snowflakes.
Christmas cards - I have still got to write mine. Have not made any this year at all!
The magic of Christmas!
Day 8 in the advent boxes:
Joke -Who hides in the bakery at Christmas? A mince spy!
Fact - In Sweden, a common Christmas decoration is the Julbukk, a small figurine of a goat. It is usually make of straw. Scandinavian Christmas festivities feature a variety of straw decorations in the form of stars, angels, hearts and other shapes, as well as the Julbukk.
Bible Verse - Luke 1:8-20 The angel Gabriel is sent by God to announce the news to Zechariah - news so wonderful that the old priest cannot believe it.
Joke - What do you sing at a snowman's birthday party? Freeze a jolly good fellow!
Fact - Telesphorus, the second Bishop of Rome (125-136AD) declared that public Church services should be held to celebrate "The Nativity of our Lord and Saviour". In 320 AD Pope Julius I and other religious leaders specified 25 December as the official date of the birth of Jesus Christ.
