Christmas is sneaking up on this and if you’re looking for ways to celebrate the holiday but change it up from the typical sugar cookies and gingerbread houses, check out this Countdown to Christmas Calendar from First United Methodist Church in Mocksville.
These are great ideas that are perfect for the entire family and can be done almost entirely from the safety of your own home. And if you have spare time, go ahead and do the activities on the days that you missed! There are no rules when you’re counting down to CHRISTmas!
