12 Days of Christmas At Home


Merry Christmas from Silver Lake! This year, we are celebrating the 12 Days of Christmas with you and your family!

Silver Lake's 12 Days of Christmas At Home Box will bring you 12 days of activities to enjoy with your family between Christmas Day and Epiphany.

In the United States, the Christmas season has become a marathon that lasts from midnight on Halloween through Dec. 25, and then abruptly ends at the end of the day to make way for after-Christmas sales. But did you know that Christmas is not just a one-day celebration, but a holiday season that lasts for 12 days? The traditional Christmas season goes from Christmas Day on Dec. 25 through Epiphany on Jan. 6. This year, when most of us are spending the holidays at home with just the people who live with us, stretch out your celebration and savor the holiday over 12 days.

Each day, explore a new activity, from creating stars for the Wise Men to follow to birdseed feeders to bring joy to our feathered friends. In Silver Lake tradition, we will encourage you to get outside, to care for your neighbors, and to thank God for your many blessings.

In addition to the activity booklet, the At Home Box will include supplies for 4 crafts, one of Chef Lynn's recipes to make at home, and instructions for 7 more activities. You will also receive gifts of Silver Lake swag -- a Silver Lake knit hat, plus your choice of a Silver Lake face covering or the 2020 Silver Lake stuffed black bear (or get both in our deluxe box!).

Also, stay tuned to Silver Lake social media (Facebook, Instagram, YouTube) for fun bonus material over the 12 Days of Christmas.

Purchase a 12 Days of Christmas At Home Box by Dec. 11 to ensure delivery by Christmas. Makes a great gift for the young people in your life!
