A Christian Christmas Tradition 

Keeping the focus where it should be:
on Christ!
This spunky, but silent, monkey brings Bible lessons and fun, hands-on Christmas activities to your family in the form of a letter each day during the month of  December.
He's even been called the
"Christian Alternative to Elf on the Shelf"

Melk has added a fun and exciting dimension to our Advent activities. His message has led our family in taking a closer look at the true meaning of Christmas, and inspired us to communicate this message to others.
