I put the garland on my tree right away.... It looked gorgeous. When the garland became available again, I bought another strand. I need to find a way to display it year round as it is too pretty to hide away.
We have displayed our Christmas Tree nativity for a couple of years now and it still looks like the day we received it. We love the detail of the figures, and how it relates the story of the nativity.
I teach Spanish in my home and teach cultural lessons whenever possible. Of course, my Navidades/Nuevo Ano, Dia de los Tres Reyes unit is huge. However, these three kings owls serve two purposes for me: artifacts to present for my cultural lesson and additions to my owl collection.
