Today I’m keeping it short & sweet.
Being that we are away from home and so many of our usual traditions, I wanted to do something fun with the kiddos to keep the Christmas spirit alive and fresh.
This year, on the night before Easter, we “planted” jelly beans and Lollipops grew overnight. I explained to my daughter how this magical occurrence only happens on Easter. It was a huge hit and brought much excitement to our morning, in addition to the traditional Easter baskets from the Easter Bunny.
For Christmas, I thought I’d repurpose that idea using candy canes in place of lollipops.
So for one night only, Christmas Eve, when a peppermint disc is planted in the ground, a candy cane will magically grow from that seed.
Our house elf, Buddy Dee, presented the idea to our kids this morning with a note. My daughter can’t contain her excitement.
