Instructions to our missionary:
The first day of Christmas is Dec. 14th, so open Package #1 on December 14th, package #2 on the 15th, and so on until you open package #12 on Christmas Day! We hope that you have fun knowing that we think about you every day!
On the first day of Christmas to add to your celebration,
We had to make this day a really COOL sensation.
Go ahead, don’t be afraid of just a little razzle,
To your Christmas Spirit this will really add the dazzle!

On the 2nd day of Christmas, we are steeped in tradition,
And so, to you out there, we are making this addition.
Christmas carols we’ve sent along your way
We hope these songs will brighten each and every day.

And all the special blessings Father grants us from above.

We wanted to provide you with something that will last.
A helpful little something that will make your kitchen cheery,
So that the task tomorrow will not seem quite so dreary.

On the 9th day of Christmas, we know you’re working hard.

‘Tis the night before Christmas and all through the house,
Not a creature is stirring, not even a mouse.

With hopes that your Christmas is more than just fair.
So open your goodies – your sock’s full to the top
With much love from your family that never will stop!
