One the first day of Christmas my true love gave to me........
a partridge in a pear tree!
meaning: Jesus Christ in the manger.
We opened our presents one a time in the morning~ each of us had three (like the three gifts given to Jesus----except (rats!) no gold.) Oh yeah, and poor Judah only got one.
That night we finished the Christmas story, we've been reading the anticipation of it throughout December.
On the second day of Christmas my true love gave to me........
two turtle doves!
meaning: the old and new testaments.
The "fun" activity for today was opening MORE presents, this time at Grandma and Grandpa's house, among them~ a harmonica and two bike horns. My, the music we've been hearing ever since......
On the third day of Christmas my true love gave to me...........
three french hens
meaning: The Holy Trinity and Faith, Hope and Love
Today we celebrated the day by doing something we never do~ watching a movie on a day other than Friday. The Nativity Story to be exact. We really enjoy this movie---and between you and I, I am such a bawlbaby at the part when Jesus is born and Joseph is overcome with joy and it overflows into laughter and tears.
