Holly Jolly Bingo Words: Day 2

Ready for the words for the day?  Here's the list....

Northern lights

whipped cream

A Christmas Carol

festival of lights


tree skirt


Christ's birth





cinnamon rolls



On the list for today was "Christ's birth".  So many times we get all carried away with the hustle and bustle of Christmas, the shopping, the parties, family, friends, giving, receiving, but we fail to remember what we are truly celebrated.  Christmas is a time for us to celebrate when Christ was born, and the joy and hope that His birth means for all believers.  He is the reason for the season.

Holly Jolly Bingo Words: Day 1

Okay folks!  We have arrived to Day 1 of the Holly Jolly Bingo!  Listed below are the words for the day...

ice skating

deck the halls




yule log

King Herod





Mary & Joseph

stocking stuffer

Frosty the Snowman

pine needles

Well, hope all of you were able to get a few words crossed off today!  One word I found interesting on this list was "yule log".  How many of you know what a yule log is?  I had no idea so decided to look it up.  A "Yule Log" is a specially selected log burnt on a hearth around the period of Christmas.  That's one of those Christmas traditions that is mostly unheard of nowadays.  Do any of you still carry on this tradition?  If so, leave a comment and tell us how you got started!
