Start a New Tradition

I have MANY traditions that I hold onto and make sure that I get my kids excited about them as well.......but the Tradition of Advent is BY FAR my favorite!!!!!!!!!

I can't remember when we started this in our family...but I know it will stick around forever!

I have just added to my etsy shop a new Advent Calendar and I am VERY excited about it! I wish it was December already!

An Advent calendar is a special calendar which is used to count or celebrate the days of Advent in anticipation of Christmas. It is a great way to give the kids little Christmas goodies that they can actually ENJOY during the month of December! I always hated it when they would get a cute Christmas shirt, hat, hair bow, or anything Christmas related ON Christmas and it would have to wait an entire year in the attic for them to enjoy it!

We use the advent Calendar to give the kids little goodies, crafts, candy, or decorations that get them excited about Christmas!

Start a new tradition in your family!

The pockets are deep enough for holding the gifts!

You could also use a little Christmas Elf or Santa and just have the kids move it each day while counting down the days until Santa comes!!!!!

HOPE YOU ENJOY!!!!!!!!!!!!
