A Christmas Angel Collection
''I first brought one of these books of angels home when we originally carried them and I think we eventually accumulated 4 books over the years (not to mention giving innumerable copies as gifts accompanied by a set of markers). Every year we bring out the unfinished angels maybe a week before Christmas, set aside an area of the dining room table, and put out markers, colored pencils, crayons, glitter, glue, sequins, etc. Throughout the course of days, lots of family and friends of family are in and out of the house. Some sit down and get totally involved in creating an angel. Others add a little something to ones that have already been started. The youngest children are particularly happy with gluing on glitter and sequins. The teenagers and adults like painstakingly coloring in every detail. One nephew made a ''punk'' angel when he was a 'tween -- all black! We have quite a collection now, and we wish we'd had each person sign and date the angels they created. When we first began doing this, we perched the various angels on the Christmas tree, but as the collection has grown, we've put all the completed angels together on a table as a host of angels, or had them lined up across the valance of the drapes in the living room -- sort of an ''angels we have heard on high'' effect. The last Christmas my older sister was still in good shape (she died several years ago), we attached nylon cord to the angels and hung them individually from the ceiling in front of the fireplace, going from the fireplace to the entry doorway. The effect was magical. You walked into the house to be greeted by hosts of angels flying above you. My sister burst into tears when she came over for Christmas that year -- she was so touched by the sight. We did the same thing this past year, and my granddaughter and daughter-in-law were full of delight and wonder at the magical effect when they came in on Christmas Eve.
Making the angels could also be a family project or group gift for someone. Each family or group member can create an angel and sign it and then you give all the angels to the recipient. You can send angels to members who live elsewhere and ask them to complete one and return it to be part of the group gift.
This started out as such a small activity, with just a few angels being made the first year we did it, and now has grown to be quite a collection as we've brought out the unfinished angels for people to decorate over the years. Making the angels has become a treasured tradition in our family and bringing out the box of finished ones always brings back memories of who made each one and when they did it.''
