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. 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!
