A fun way to Count the days until Christmas
Advent Calendars are used for children primarily to count the days until Christmas. The traditional Advent Calendar was a small festive Christmas poster or card with 24 small windows or doors, one window is to be opened each day beginning on December 1st until Christmas Eve. Today Advent Calendars come in all shapes and sizes allowing children to receive small gifts, pieces of chocolate or merry messages for each day in December ending December 24th. The Christmas advent calendar is a fun way to help children know when Christmas Eve will arrive, that special night that comes one time per year when Santa brings them gifts to open on Christmas day.
