It’s that time again, y’all!!
Christmas will be here before we know it. I don’t think it’s any secret how much I ADORE Christmas and how long I’m known for leaving Christmas trees up, right?
One of my favorite traditions from the past 3 years has been an ornament exchange we do with friends.
I gather 23 friends and we each make 24 of the same ornament – like a cookie exchange. Then, we all come together and each person takes one from everyone else.
Every year I’m amazed at the creativity and beauty of our unique ornament sets!
The end result is a box full of 24 different ornaments – one for every day during December leading up to Christmas!
The coolest part is the devotional book that goes along with our ornaments to walk your family through devotions about the real meaning of Christmas!
Want to join in with our group this year? If you’re around Charlotte or Knoxville Tenn, we have friends already in place that are participating and you can join in. Spots are super limited and on a first come, first serve basis.
If you’re outside of these areas and want to join us, you’ll just need to mail your ornaments to us early and in return I’ll mail your set after our exchange party.
Think you have enough friends to host your own Christmas Ornament Exchange? Even better! This is a fantastic event for your church group, a large family or just a group of friends. All of the details for ordering the full set can be found on the Meaningful Family website.
Don’t wait though – you need to give people enough time to make their ornaments and you want to host your exchange party by mid November so everyone can have their ornaments and start on Dec 1.
Want this Christmas to be different and have the tools to walk through each day with a short devotional about the real meaning of Christmas? We’d love for you to join us now! Comment below if you’re interested before spots fill up. Or – host your own ornament exchange and gather 23 friends to help! I promise you’ll love doing this exchange more than you know!
