Image result for St. PatrickI think saying that God Made Celebrations comes from Him inspiring us to celebrate.  It’s important for us to first think about WHY we are celebrating WHAT we are celebrating and remember to celebrate ALL the gifts and days He’s given us.  With that in mind, here are some ideas:

Pick a different holiday to celebrate each day of the week and decorate your house accordingly:  New Years Eve, Valentine’s Day, St. Patrick’s Day (really interesting back story), Easter, Thanksgiving, Christmas, Birthdays, Anniversaries, Halloween, Independence Day

HOME FUN:  bake a birthday cake and sing, make party hats, watch “Mission Celebration” Little Einsteins, play pin the tail on the donkey, write and send “thank you” cards celebrating people with holiday pictures on them, do things on each day you would do for specific holidays (make valentines, drink sparkling cider, give gifts, hunt Resurrection Eggs, wear green, have sparklers)

OUTSIDE ADVENTURES:  Take suprise care packages and leave them on someone’s doorstep (in the May Day tradition), do a survey to find out what is the favortie holiday in your family and why, make cookies and deliver cookie plates to your neighbors
