Countdown to Christmas 2012 - Day 15


The music of day 15 comes from Laura Cooksey's Christmas single and it will make you wish she had released an entire Christmas album!

Add some holiday cheer to your day with the Countdown to Christmas. Each day features a Christmas carol, gift ideas, a Bible verse and devotional, a recipe to try and the holiday TV schedule for the day. There are even extra goodies thrown in here and there!

Merry Christmas (or, as they say in the Norwegian language, God Jul!)
