Up here in the north pole our skies are filled with stars, but on Christmas we celebrate one star. Hence this poem:
Years ago a bright brilliant star
shone down from the blackened sky,
showing wise men and shepherds the way
to the manger where Jesus lay.
And so I hang a multitude
of stars, around my tree,
reminding me of the reason why
we celebrate Christmas day.

It’s still only November but I had fun making these simple star decorations.
You and your family can, too. Get busy. Directions are here. While you’re busy painting and gluing, listen to this you-tube song.
It celebrates the book about me and is less than a minute and a half long. I hope you’ll play it over and over again.
My next post will have another simple craft for decorations and another holiday throw. The more you do now, the more relaxed your December will be.
