From “Silent Night” to “’Twas the Night Before Christmas”, music and poetry have been an essential part of the holidays for centuries.
This Christmas season, author, poet and musician Marsha MacLeod brings readers A Word Wreath: Creating Christmas Poems, a Scripture-based family devotional that encourages people of all ages to reflect on the true meaning of Christmas by introducing them to the joy of creating poetry.
A Word Wreath is the perfect activity for family fun and togetherness, as readers of all ages learn to draft song lyrics, write poems in traditional and contemporary styles, and assemble a crafty “word wreath” that displays the entire family’s creativity for the holiday season.
“Through the years I found that writing a Christmas poem is a great way to experience the joy of Christmas in a personal manner,” said MacLeod. “A Word Wreath shows the many ways one can share that joy with family and friends.”
