Countdown to Christmas with Fun Advent Calendars

The entire month of December is a holiday celebration for my family. We love decorating, holiday music, movies, food and special events.  One of our favorite family traditions is to countdown to Christmas using an advent calendar. However, this is not done with any old advent calendar.  I love advent calendars that hold gifts and candy. Take a look at some of my favorites...

Fill Your Own

These are my favorites.  They can be filled with candy but I especial love to fill them with small gifts... toys, jewelry, notes, crystals and other beautiful surprises.  I also love adding redeemable tickets for special favors or activities.
