Christmas Traditions Around the World

     Before we left for Texas for the holidays my MOPs group had one last meeting before the end of the year.  It was our annual Christmas meeting.  Lots of yummy food, an ornament exchange, and this year we did something new.  We had a table decorating contest.  I came up with this idea about displaying different countries and how they celebrated Christmas.  Each lady picked a country, brought decorations, and made a sweet treat to share with everyone.  


We wanted to also display the real reason for the season.  
So we highlighted the Nativity in the middle.


Here are the countries we all picked...

Costa Rica


Germany


Ireland


France


Here are some of the other tables....

Nativity Table



Ugly Sweater Table


Happy Birthday Table


Winter Wonderland Table


     After all the judging was done, guess which table won??  OURS!!  Whoo-hoo!  It was a great last meeting of the year, looking forward to seeing everyone again in the New Year!
