For the Twelfth Day of Christmas in July, we bring you Good Tidings of Great Joy with Nancy Halvorsen’s Tidings Advent Calendar Kit!
You and your child can count down the December days with this clever calendar designed by Nancy Halvorsen. Each day add something new until, on December 24th, you complete the Nativity scene! The panel gives instructions to make the ornaments backed with felt, or you can use the kit instructions for the ornaments but will have to purchase the Tidings Great Joy Gold Panel to back them.
Tidings is the newest line of fabric from Nancy Halvorsen and it features all the rich colors and patterns she is known for.
We hope you’ve enjoyed our Twelve Days of Christmas in July and we’d like to leave you with this dear old Southern recipe that’s been passed down. It’s traditionally made at Christmas because that was when oranges were available. Now you can make it as a healthful dessert anytime, but to us, it tastes best at Christmas.
3 navel oranges
1/2 of a fresh coconut, peeled and grated
1 small bottle of Maraschino cherries without stems
1 small can crushed pineapple
1/2 cup chopped pecans
3/4 cup mini marshmallows
Peel oranges and remove pulp from skin. Add remaining ingredients, including pineapple and cherry juice. Mix well and serve with whipped cream on top.
