The 12 Days of Christmas Adventure is rooted in a family project begun over twenty years ago. Based on the lyrics of the Christmas carol “The Twelve Days of Christmas,” this holiday project involves giving someone who needs a little Christmas cheer 12 gifts over the course of 12 days. Gifts are rhymed, realigned, or downright twisted to fit each verse, such as a "TurtleBack Glaze" on Day 2, "Octopus Bread" on Day 8, and edible drumsticks on Day 12. Sneaking around can be part of the fun, (as gifts can be given anonymously), followed by hoots and giggles. This easy read offers many ideas for homemade gifts as well as purchased items that fit "The 12 Days" theme. It also includes a URL link, where readers can post their own gift ideas, interactively enabling others to expand their repertoire of "12 Days" gifts. This project can be carried out by an individual, a couple, a family, or a group. Particularly fun for homeschoolers or youth groups seeking a service project. Renew your own holiday spirit by joining the adventure this Christmas.
