Do you do Advent Calendars with your kids? I grew up always having one and we have continued that tradition with our kids. This year the Professor is old enough to have his own. I am guessing in a few days he will start understanding to look for a new gift each morning. We keep the gifts really small. Usually it is a piece of candy, a pencil something like that. I am also a fan a buying something like an 8 pack of cute socks and that takes care of 4 days for the girls PLUS gives them something useful. Today the girls each got a new headband (and they will be getting headbands 3 more times.....Ha!). The Professor got a new matchbox car. On the 24th they will each come out to find a big gift and it will be their annual Christmas pjs.
What traditions do you have?
