A Twelve Days of Christmas Dinner Party on Twelfth Night
I have been working on a menu (with a little help from a very dear friend
) for a Twelve Days of Christmas Dinner Party on Twelfth Night
for my family and thought I would share it with you all, since I have been asked by a few friends. I don’t usually like posting before hand, since I don’t know how (or if!) it will turn out, but here are my plans!
.: The Menu :.
Four Calling Birds Chicken Wings or Salad with Grilled Chicken
Five Golden Onion Rings with Dipping Sauce
Six Geese-a-Laying Deviled Eggs or Egg Salad
(recalling the seven gifts of the Holy Spirit)
Twelve Drummer’s Drumming Chicken Drumsticks
(with maybe some crosses added instead of the extra pear’s out of pie dough)
(representing the three gifts of the Magi)
Prayer of Mothers
Father in heaven, grant me the grace to appreciate the dignity which you have conferred on me. Let me realize that not even the Angels have been blessed with such a privilege—to share in your creative miracle and bring new Saints to heaven. Make me a good mother to all my children after the example of Mary, the Mother of your Son. Through the intercession of Jesus and Mary I ask your continued blessings on my family. Let us all be dedicated to your service on earth and attain the eternal happiness of your kingdom in heaven. Amen.
