The coutdown to Christmas will begin in a little over a week-giving us just enough time to get together our Advent Calendars... just to refresh your memory (because you're not five anymore,) Advent Calendars are those things our grandparents have hanging up in their houses that count down the days of Christmas. Typically the days are shown on little windows or bags that conceal treats for youngsters to uncover over the 24 days leading up to Christmas. My mother used to get them for me and my sister every year- they looked like oversized cardboard books with windows we would punch out- revealing a gnarly looking piece of chocolate that we would devour on the spot (didn't take much to make us happy!)... Nowadays, you can find beautifully crafted Advent's online at Pottery Barn & Etsy- or of course you can come up with your Calendar- which is always the funnest thing to do, right? Take a look at some of these Advents that will hopefully inspire you to start a new tradition in your home this Holiday season!
