Advent starts this weekend, and I readily admit I am a tad ambitious when it comes to advent calendars. I find them all so enticing as they represent a time of waiting, hope, and inner change. I thought I would share a few new ones I found this year if you are looking to add one to your traditions…
This illustrated advent calendar caught my eye, as it is visually stunning. Even better, it has a verse written on the back for each day you pull a card. Since advent is a spiritual experience for our family, I am excited to use this one as part of our bedtime routine this advent. You can find this one on etsy from Coley Created shop.
My children’s favorite is the christmas book advent calendar. We put away all the christmas books till December, wrap them up, and open one each day for story time before bed leading up to Christmas Day. (Photo from last year’s advent.)
We just added this knitted one to the mix, because I couldn’t resist the pockets. I think I will fill this one with ornaments or little chocolates. My mom always had a chocolate filled one for us, and it brings me many sweet memories. Also love this boxed village advent calendar and this red clothespin one for packages!
What do you fill your advent calendars with? I love hearing about different holiday traditions from around the world.
