advent/count down to Christmas

Does anyone celebrate it?
When mine were really little we use to do it, theyd get small toy or candy every night till Christmas. It helped alot with the how many more days quiestion, they'd see if their was something left in basket there was still that many days left till Christmas

  • Yes, we do it. We (my 4 year old and I) made our advent calendar this year. It was fun.

  • Yep, we have an advent calendar that is identical to one I had as a child. My grandma made it for us when I got pregnant. It is a Christmas tree and every day you put an ornament on it. On Christmas Eve, you put the star on top. My son loves it as much as I did when I was little.
