How Do You Spell Merry Christmas?

(Acrostic)

Manger scenes telling the Christmas Story

Exchanging gifts with friends and family

Relatives and friends visiting

Remembering to hang your stocking

Yummy food in December

Christmas Pageants with lines to remember

Hanging mistletoe up high

Reindeer flying across the sky

Invitations to parties and balls

Singing Yuletide carols

Trees we decorate

Making cookies and cakes

Advent wreaths with candles

Santa and his elves

The acrostic is an old fashioned staple of school and Sunday school programs. Each child holds up a letter and recites his “piece.” The letters often spell MOTHER for Mothers Day, HAPPY THANKSGIVING or MERRY CHRISTMAS.

  1. It’s wonderful how you still educate Cheryl, through beautiful lessons softly delivered though lovely poems and fascinating stories, and heartening how we are still not too old to learn 🙂
    And it’s very kind of you to provide the background with each post. Helps immensely more to understand fully. Acrostic for example, a new learning for today.
    Wish you and Robert a magical season of festivities this Christmas Cheryl 💖 may the joys overflow.

    1. Michel, I am so pleased that you like the acrostic and photos.” Noel” is also widely used in English. English speakers owe a great debt to the French for many words we use. We also owe a great debt to the French for the enlightenment principles on which our country was founded and for military aid during our American Revolution. ❤
      I hope you and your family are having a great holiday season. 🙂 Joyeux Noel!
      Love, ❤
      Cheryl
