Christmas Spirits are little elves that arrive in your home and help spread joy and cheer during the holiday season. Arrange them in a new place every morning with a little note for the children or grandchildren encouraging the spirit of the season. Your note can say: Let’s visit an elderly neighbor or relative today, Let’s read a favorite story together today, Let’s bake cookies for our mailman today–whatever you want!
Help spread kindness during the holiday season and teach the little ones to do the same! Heck, spread joy every day, make some elves that come every month instead of just during the holiday season!
