12 Days of Christmas // Wrap-up + Christmas Story + Winners

Merry Christmas, dearest readers!! :D I hope y'all have a fabulous day with family and friends, celebrating the birth of our Savior.

Today I'm doing a wrap-up of the party, sharing the Christmas story (I'm gonna be not-so traditional and do Matthew instead of Luke ;D), and announcing the giveaway winners. Here goes! 

First off, how could we have a Christmas party without the true Christmas story? ^_^ 

18 ~ Now the birth of Jesus Christ was on this wise: When as his mother Mary was espoused to Joseph, before they came together, she was found with child of the Holy Ghost. 
19 ~ Then Joseph her husband, being a just man, and not willing to make her a publick example, was minded to put her away privily. 
20 ~ But while he thought on these things, behold, the angel of the Lord appeared unto him in a dream, saying, Joseph, thou son of David, fear not to take unto thee Mary thy wife: for that which is conceived in her is of the Holy Ghost. 
21 ~ And she shall bring forth a son, and thou shalt call his name JESUS: for he shall save his people from their sins. 
22 ~ Now all this was done, that it might be fulfilled which was spoken of the Lord by the prophet, saying, 
23 ~ Behold, a virgin shall be with child, and shall bring forth a son, and they shall call his name Emmanuel, which being interpreted is, God with us. 
24 ~ Then Joseph being raised from sleep did as the angel of the Lord had bidden him, and took unto him his wife: 
25 ~ And knew her not till she had brought forth her firstborn son: and he called his name JESUS.” 
~ Matthew 1:18-25 KJV ~
