One of my fondest Christmas memories was being in Texas with my husband’s large Christian family. My In-laws’ home was always full of PEACE and they celebrated the birth of Jesus Christ, with unabashed JOY! One of my sisters in law played the guitar and the whole family (my father in law still in his Santa suit) sang Christmas carols & hymns (in both English and Spanish) to the DELIGHT of us all, especially the 16 grandchildren!
This year, Iâ€™ve chosen to participate in UNICEFâ€™s annual holiday campaign, which includes a wonderful collection of gift ideas including UNICEFâ€™s cards and gifts. Every UNICEF card or gift you buy helps benefit children around the world. I especially like their 3-Piece Musical Set, which includes kid-sized maracas and a tambourine made of hand-painted wood. It reminds me so much of the way my family celebrates the season.
