Can you think of a better way to feel the Spirit of Christmas than by doing acts of kindness? It is all too easy to get caught up in the hustle and bustle of the season and miss those little opportunities to serve our fellowman. Because of this, our family is doing a Secret Santa Advent Calendar. From today until Christmas Eve the children will take turns choosing a Santa bag from the wall. Inside each bag is a piece of paper that tells us what secret Santa activity we will do that day.
-give someone a poinsettia
-pay for someone's meal
-send a Christmas card to someone who might be lonely
-leave a crate full of clementines on someone's doorstep
-deliver "It's A Wonderful Life" + popcorn to someone
-bake + deliver Christmas cookies
-leave hot chocolate on someone's doorstep
-cut paper snowflakes and secretly decorate someone's door
-make a pretty ornament and deliver to a neighbor
-write a looong list of all the good things about someone you know and leave it on their doorstep
-take a candy cane with you and secretly give it to someone who looks like they are having a bad day
serve as our Savior would.
