The Three Gifts of Christmas

YES!!!! It is almost here. We all long for this special day not only to spend with family and friend, but to also reflect on the Savior, and the many gifts in our lives.

Back in October my Mom called me and said she had just been to this great class, about what to do for your children at Christmas time. She said that it kind of makes Christmas a little easier, meaningful and MORE ORGANIZED…Okay I was sold!!! Here is the idea; I hope you love it as much as I did!!!!

The idea of giving three gifts reminiscent of the gift of the three wise men.

Gold: "The Gift of Wonders" (Gold)These are gifts that tickle and delight. They are the gifts that are really wanted or desired-- the gift the receiver just can't go without! A wanted toy, a planned outing, a season pass... something they just HAVE to have.

Frankincense: "The Gift of Meaning" (Red)These are gifts that have meaning and express affection. These might include: A scrapbook, A quilt, A special doll, an heirloom, a childhood memento, a ctr ring or piece of jewelry, new temple clothes, a treasure box, a framed photograph, or letters from the heart. This gift could be spiritual, meaningful or both.

Myrrh: "The Gift of Usefulness" (Green)These are gifts that are truly needed. Look at your loved ones needs and choose a gift that would be truly useful. These might include a new coat, a down comforter, or a new pair of shoes and socks. Use this gift for something practical yet worthwhile.

We also make sure Santa does come because the tradition of Santa needs to be preserved.

Homework: Have a MERRY CHRISTMAS!!!
