December is FULL of feast days that are so much fun to celebrate, and over the years, we have tried different ways to honor these friends of God.
We recently celebrated the feast of St. Nicholas (Dec. 6) and the Immaculate Conception (Dec. 8).
Next up is the back-to-back feast day celebrations of St. Juan Diego (Dec. 9) and Our Lady of Guadalupe (Dec. 12).
This year I needed to keep St. Juan Diego's feast day easy, so I picked up these Cinnamon Sugar pita chips for a snack::
They ended up tasting just AWFUL! Ha ha! No one liked them.
But I did pull out our movie, which Miss Clementine really enjoyed!
These movies have been around for quite some time. If your kiddos have never watched one, I highly recommend them.
Another suggestion is the Glory Stories series, (saint stories on CD). They are awesome to listen to while in the car.
There are also a handful of wonderful books about the amazing story of St. Juan Diego and Our Lady of Guadalupe ::
Speaking of Our Lady of Guadalupe, today is her feast day. I snapped this photo yesterday at my parish as the Hispanic community was preparing to honor her.
The story of St. Juan Diego and Our Lady of Guadalupe can be found here.
We are so blessed to have so many holy, friends in heaven to pray for us.
St. Juan Diego and Our Lady Guadalupe, pray for us!
