Do you do Advent Calendars?
By which I mean, I know that Advent is technically a religious season, but Advent calendars are generally a 24-day countdown, often full of candy, to Christmas. When I was growing up, my mom had a fabric one she’d made with different characters and themes from the Bible story about Jesus’ birth, with peppermint candies you could tie on with string. My brother and I took turns eating the candies. I’m not sure how much attention we paid to the shepherds underneath. These days, I do Advent Countdowns: make lists, read books, light candles, whatever strikes my fancy that year. So my question for you is: do you use an Advent calendar? And if so, what is yours like?
