I starting using a Christmas advent calendar with my kids a few years ago and they loved it! We have made it an annual Christmas tradition now and it is something that they look forward to every year. We do a countdown calendar with treats for each day leading up to Christmas. I actually do it from December 1st to the 24th. There are a variety of ways to make your own advent calendar and a variety of ways to do the tradition. I thought I would gather up some ideas from my fellow bloggers so you can start your own Christmas advent calendar tradition.
