Noel......PPA125...Tags



Looking for some holiday spirit?  Break out the cookies, warm up the hot chocolate and.......... 


1.  Watch The GriNch - the cartoon version narrated by  Boris Karloff!


2.  Recite the pOem "Twas the Night Before Christmas" and have the kids (of any age) add sound effects every time you pause.


3.  Read the book The Best Christmas Pageant Ever - it is the best Christmas story ever!  Well except maybe for the original one  :)


4.  Write this out:   "ABCDEFGHIJKMNOPQRSTUVWXYZ" 
Tell your family it's a clue to a Christmas carol and promise to sing it for them if they guess it. If they can't figure it out they will have to sing for you. When they finally give up say:  "No L"  and then sit back and enjoy the show!


Wishing you a wonderful holiday season!

Linda the card is wonderful, but the Christmas Carol "joke" is hysterical! Got me too! Too too fun. I just love your stories and look forward to more in 2012.
Have a very Merry Christmas and Happy New Year! Hugs.

I like that "No L" bit, Linda; I'll have to try that on my kids!

I have the set "Lovely Letters", and never tire of seeing it in action. They look great on these festive tags! Merry Christmas!
