Christmas will soon be here which means the countdown to gifts and good times is well on its way. Some may celebrate with a daily reminder via yelling and screaming but I always liked using an Advent calendar. Traditionally used by Western Christians to count the days between the fourth Sunday before Christmas and Christmas Day, lots of people who aren’t especially religious make these calendars as a fun way to count the number of sleeps until Santa comes. Some have little doors and windows while others show off the countdown in other ways. Should you want to get in on the action here are some DIY Advent calendars you can make with your family.
