Merry LEON Day
I wish you a Merry LEON Day. LEON Day, you say? What is LEON Day? LEON Day is "Noel" spelled backwards. It means there is 6 months until Christmas! Now don't start to panic, six months is still a long time, although I think Santa may begin sending his elves around to make sure we are being nice and not naughty.
I found some fun ideas to share with you to help celebrate LEON Day.
Celebrate a mini-Christmas
Wrap up a few Christmas books, movies and music CD's and put them under a plant or flower in your house. Then throughout the day unwrap one and either read or watch a movie. If it's a music CD, you can go bake Christmas cookies while listening to the holiday tunes or have fun making some holiday crafts. You may even want to prepare a Christmas feast for dinner that evening. Yummy turkey, stuffing and cranberry sauce!
Have a Backwards Day
Since LEON is Noel spelled backwards you can have a backwards day.
- Write backwards
- Wear your clothes backwards
- Wear your sunglasses on the back of your head
- Walk backwards
- Serve breakfast for dinner or serve dessert first
- Read the book Tell Me the Day Backwards by Albert Lamb (yes, the library owes it!)
