The giving Days of Christmas

Love this idea of an advent Calendar all about giving.  Every year I have bought my children (now 17 & 23) an advent calendar with chocolate for each day before Christmas.  What a joy it would be to share all of these notes of good deeds done over the years at the beginning of each holiday.  Simply put a garland with each day of the month represented.  It could be as simple as a bow to tie a note to, or a little container of any kind.  Each day, you each do a good deed for someone else.  A total stranger, an animal, maybe your whole family. And on Christmas Eve you can sit around a warm fire sharing.....imagine the joy of reading when your children are adults what they did at five, six and seventeen?  Wish I had done this, but it's never too late to do a good deed.  Let's all share the joys of Christmas with each other by receiving the blessings and happiness that comes from truly giving from our hearts. xoxox
