Christmas Card Alphabet Book

  
A is for Angels,
With halos so bright,
Whose carols were heard,
On that first Christmas Night.


B is for Baby,
The Christ child so dear,
We celebrate Christmas,
His birthday, each year.
 

C is for Candles,
That so brightly shine,
To give a warm welcome,
To your friends and mine.



 
I is for Ice,
On snow covered hills,
Where sledding is fun,
Along with the spills.

N is for Noel,
The angels did sing,
To herald the birth,
of Jesus, our King.
 
Just finished making my third Christmas card alphabet book for this Christmas, they were a lot of fun to make.  I've been saving Christmas cards for a couple years and getting them from friends too.  If you look online you can find a few versions of the Christmas card poems to use or if interested I can mail you the one I used. 
 
A few fun challenges:

This is a great idea. I love the little poems you have used for each page. Do you go through all the letters of the alphabet or just a few? I always try and reuse my Christmas cards if I can. Hugs Mrs A.
