Holiday Calendar

December 8th

14 days till Hanukkah
17 days till Christmas
23 days till the New Year
29 days till 3 Kings Day

If you suffer from lack of snow in your area and are therefore unable to build a proper snowman, grab some yarn and knit one!

Enjoy knitting the whole Snowman Family. Let them live in your home or give them away as a gift, making somebody else happy. If pressed for time (and who isn't this time of year?!), make only the small ones. Then, add a string and hang them on your Christmas tree, in your car, on your bag, or on presents underneath the tree.
