Celebrating Three Kings’ Day

Merry Christmas to my Russian readers!  Many blessings on the Feast of The Theophany to my Orthodox readers!  And Happy Three Kings’ Day to those of you celebrating!

I wrote a post last year about Three Kings Day for your reading pleasure:

We celebrated today by leaving our shoes out on Twelfth Night and awakening to wondrous gifts left by the Three Wise Men this morning; we changed out our Nature Table to reflect The Three Wise Men as our theme for beginning to mid-January; we made a rice pudding and put three beans in it representing the Three Wise Men for those to find for good luck for the year.  We made stars for each of the three children with their names on them in glitter and have some beautiful origami stars hanging in our school room that my dearest friend made me for Christmas.  The one thing I did not get to do yet was to bless our home or take down our Christmas tree, so I am  running a bit behind there.  Smile  That is okay with me though  as my time right now is being devoted to chasing a toddler and homeschooling. 

I also was pleased to see a new “Three Kings and Epiphany E-Book”  from Eileen Straiton from Little Acorn Learning, Jennifer Tan from Syrendell and Jodie Mesler from Home Music Making over at Little Acorn Learning:  http://littleacornlearning.com/index.html  The beautiful star on the front cover of this e-book is like the strands I currently have hanging in my school room!  I am looking forward to reading it and planning out ideas for next year!

I hope you had a wonderful holiday season, and I am looking forward to a wonderful 2011 with all of you wonderful mindful mothers!

Many blessings,

Carrie

  1. We also had a lovely celebration with a traditional cake (with a coin rather than a bean) and a final star gift. It is such a nice way to end the season.

  2. Thank you Carrie for your praises! I also loved your menu ideas! I think I shall do that, too with my family. This is such a powerfully royal time, I feel so enthusiastic about this new year, along with so many other people. My husband and I have had a very powerful week and it is so positive; we have set the stage for the forthcoming year. I have been enjoying the twelve days of Christmas and I feel that our family has reached a new epiphany. My children have been sharing hugs and love with each other, they seem to all be best friends, because my husband and I are on the same page. This is the first holiday season that we have ever had with much love, instead of being stressed out and disagreeing on things. I am so in love with our new life!!! Hope all is well and happy for you all…..OH, OH, STAR OF WONDER, STAR OF NIGHT, STAR WITH ROYAL BEAUTY BRIGHT……..
    Love, Jodie Mesler
