Ghost of Christmas Spirit Letter Surprise

Sherri Osborn
This is a fun surprise neighborhood gift shared by a visitor named Phyllis. Print out the letter below, grab a candy cane, and include a homemade star ornament or even a picture of a star. Then put them all in a little gift bag or basket and leave them on someone's front steps, and don't let them see you.

Materials Needed:

Print out and include this letter:

The ghost of Christmas Present has come here,
To leave you some good old Holiday cheer.
Don't be an Ebenezer, oh boy
Continue this greeting, this Christmas joy.

First, hang this greeting where all can see,
Try to leave it there until Christmas eve.
It will pass good will to all who visit.
Be sure to join in, you won't want to miss it.

Second, add a candy cane and a Christmas star.
Deliver it to a neighbor, maybe near, maybe far.
Don't let them see you - be sneaky - no doubt,
And make sure they find this greeting out.

Next, you have only just one chance, so be fast.
Leave it at the door where joy needs to last.
Leave it at dark when there isn't much light.
Ring the door bell, run, stay out of sight.

And last but not least, join in this season.
Don't worry, be happy, you don't need a reason.
This is good for all, and just trying to say,
Merry Christmas to all and have a great day.
