Christmas Advent Tradition

You would think that having a Christmas Advent calendar would help me keep track of my blogmas posts. In my defense, I was traveling this weekend, so for the next few days you’ll be getting a double dose so that I can play catchup.


When I was little, I reeve getting a package in the mail from my dad’s mom, Grandma Doris. She sent us many Christmas goodies, presents, parchels, and a hand-made advent calendar.

This has followed me through the years, sequins and all.  When I was younger, we would take turns amongst my siblings to place the felt design into Santa’s bag.


At the end of the day, though, it always comes back to the true meaning of Christmas.


Maybe it’s a little outdated, but this is one of my favorite traditions, and is something I will pass onto my children someday.

What does your advent calendar look like? What is your favorite tradition?
