So there’s a poem out there now… That is fun and christmassy, and may make for a fun little Christmas craft with kids, or a great stocking stuffer for the people with whom you get to spend holidays! The poem is called CHRISTMAS CONFETTI and it highlights the true meaning for the Christmas season, while keeping it magical and whimsical! 🙂
White, and red, and shades of green.
To you, what do these colors mean?
To many, they’re just nice holiday hues.
But to us, they symbolize the happiest news!
White for the purest mama Mary.
White for the angel who told her she’d carry
A very special baby boy
Who would bring the world the brightest joy!
White is for sugar and snow in our dreams.
White’s for the sacredness Christmas brings!
Green for garland and green for new being!
For abiding in peace, for feeling the freeing
Hope of forever with that newborn king.
For the harmonious carols we love to sing!
The story of our evergreen Emmanuel…
A story we’ll never tire to tell!
Red for love and berries and bows.
Red for chilly noses and toes!
For warmth that swells in fireplaces and hearts.
Reminders of where this Christmas story starts!
Red for kisses, and kindness to strangers.
It all starts with the child in the manger!
I hope this confetti helps you remember
What it is we celebrate each December!
May your heart be merry and light and joyous
As we celebrate our savior being sent to earth for us!
I created two different styles of printables if you’d like to purchase those for a very small fee from my Etsy shop! You could use the poems as a jumping off point for a fun craft with your kids, where they get to gather red, white, and green paper and make their own confetti! Stick it in mailboxes, mail it to far away family, or sprinkle it down the center of your Christmas table!
I also created a listing for a bag of the confetti you see in these pictures. You may not want to craft your own confetti– you may just want some of what is pictured to stick in your kids’ stockings on Christmas morning (which is my plan) along with a print out of the poem! The whole meaning behind creating this confetti was to help keep the focus on JESUS on Christmas morning! He is, after all, the whole reason we celebrate, RIGHT?! 🙂
I hope your holiday season is off to a great start! 🙂 You are LOVED!! XOXO!
