Thanks, everyone, for stirring up your creative juices to help name this blanket! You guys are great. This is the blanket that got packed up in an Operation Christmas Child box a couple of weeks ago. But as I was writing the blog post about it, I suddenly realized it had been sent out without a name. But names matter! Many of you came to the rescue, adding ideas on Facebook, Instagram, and this blog. A couple of you emailed me.
These are the wonderful ideas that came in. Making the final choice was difficult!
Blanket of Love
A Bright Beginning
Colors of Love
God’s Perfect Promise
The Christmas Rainbow
A Rainbow of Love
A Box of Sherbet
A Rainbow Promise Pocket
After much deliberation, the WINNER IS…
♥ THE CHRISTMAS RAINBOW ♥
I realized I wanted it to be a name that worked from a child’s perspective, so I tried to think like a little one. “The Christmas Rainbow” rose to the top because 1) I could imagine a child thinking it; 2) both “Christmas” and “rainbow” hold all the significance of the promise within each one of those; & 3) the blanket is not REALLY rainbow colors or rainbow sequence, but it is unusual, like a rainbow at Christmastime would be. Credit for “The Christmas Rainbow” name goes to Melissa Dugan.
And now this blanket can find its proper place in the world, since it has been named :)
