Advent Calendar

If you’ve read this blog for any amount of time then you know I really get into Christmas. One of the ways I really like to celebrate is to do an advent calendar but do small activities everyday to get us ready for Christmas. (I hate the feeling when you realize Christmas is a few days away and you haven’t taken time to enjoy it.) I put together a large list of Christmas activities. Some are big like: See the Nutcracker ot Do the Handel’s Messiah singalong. But most are small like: drink hot cocoa or watch It’s a Wonderful life. We loved doing this even before we had kids and I hear older kids LOVE it. Here is part of the list.

Go Ice Skating
Watch It’s a Wonderful Life, make spiced cider.
Exchange gifts
Make Christmas Cookies for friends.
Find Mistletoe, hang it in our house and kiss under it.

See the whole list here.

Check out where to get this beautiful advent and find my other favorite advent calendars right here.

    Me too! Our family has done Advent Calendars for as long as I can remember. This year I made one for my sister. The plan is to make a gift for each day…

    I loved the PB one so much when I saw it on your blog, I ordered it. Lo and behold it's massive!! Word of warning to anyone considering it…check out the measurements first. It's not quite suitable for my smaller house, but it is beautiful. Just wish it was about 1/3 of the size.
