Today is the 12/12/12.
"We began to think about decorations for the dining room table, and it was the kids' idea to make Christmas boxes to be laid at each guest's place. Inside these hand-folded boxes was a tiny wooden angel that could be pinned like a broach, and a Christmas joke that the children had great fun writing themselves - I could hear their raucous laughter from the other end of the house! We tied the boxes with fine red satin ribbon, finished off with fresh holly from our forest.
Given how different our surroundings were to our usual Christmas celebrations, we thought that we should develop a few new traditions. We made the table centrepiece ourselves, using only what we could find on the forest floor - with so much natural beauty just outside we would have been mad to use something store-bought."

This post is really like what you would find on "Pinterest" - a collection of themed Christmas decorations in photographs. As you look, I hope you will want to "develop a few new traditions".
