A visual artist’s unforgettable twist on “The Twelve Days of Christmas” using photographs of ordinary objects of trash — rusty rough-hewn nails, shards of glass, broken tools —sent along with messages of revenge against an enemy which are all sent back from the enemy assembled into a traditional Nativity crèche and an unexpected request from the enemy: Forgiveness. Author Sam Beeson asks us to completely change the paradigm of spending and gift-giving during the holidays and invites us to grant open-hearted forgiveness as the greatest gift we can offer during Christmas.


 My Review:
Wow. This was not what I was expecting but I loved it and my nine-year old son loved it too. It's such a touching way to show that we can turn hatred into love and can always forgive. It helped me to try to look past offenses and find the good.
