The Twelve Days of Christmas Printables: Special-Needs Carols

By December 13, 2010

Follow me on:

Carol of the MallOn the first day of Christmas, my About.com guide gave to me
a carol for special-needs glee.

I'm chiming in with some of the other About.com Parenting guides for a "Twelve Days of Christmas" blog series that will follow the basic concept of that item-adding holiday favorite. Since it's a song about gifts and a time of year for giving, I thought I'd use my twelve days to direct you to all the fun items I've created on this site for you to print and give or print and frame or print and stick to the wall next to your computer with a piece of tape.

And also befitting the song origins of this exercise, my first day's gift to you is a songbook full of special-needs carols that rewrite the traditional lyrics to bring them more in line with the way the holidays roll for the parents of children with disabilities. Enjoy "Hark, the Relatives Complain," "Carol of the Mall," "We'll Be Ill for Christmas," "Too-Silent Night," and eight more carols that I hope will give you a smile in this stressful season. Read them, print them, share them, send them, slip them into church hymnals to show those people who stare at your child what you're up against. And come back tomorrow to see what I've got for you next.
