If you’re planning your family Christmas party or perhaps a party for your church I found a great idea at hatchpatch.com. I was so impressed with Hatchpatch that I just had to share. “Night in Bethlehem” is actually a party we did at our church about ten years ago but the folks at Hatchpatch have put together a party plan complete with invitation, menu and pictures. Their plans will make your job a lot of easier.
A Night in Bethlehem is a Christmas experience. As a participant you come dressed in time period costumes and enter a re-creation of what the city of Bethlehem may have been like. You pay taxes, interact with merchants and sample simple foods. This party a wonderful way to feel the true reason for Christmas.
If you’re looking for other ways to share the Christmas spirit consider familyreunionhelper’s Twelve Days of Christmas Nativity. Just purchase an 11 or 12 piece nativity and deliver one piece each night to your lucky secret friends. Complete instructions as well as a printable for each day can be found at 12 Days Printable.
