As soon as Halloween is over, the stores are swarmed with advent calendars. Winnie the Pooh, Dora, Ninja Turtles, you name it… all with those awful tasteless chocolates in them.
I’ve always loved advent calendars – even as a kid it was never really about the chocolate as much as the counting down to Christmas (ok…. maybe it was a little bit about the chocolate). But the store-bought ones are cheap quality, cheap tasting, and certainly don’t look very cute sitting out on the mantle. So I did a little browsing, and here are some goodies I found. Try making one of these with your family this year!
And while you’re counting down to Christmas – don’t forget that Santa’s Workshop kicks off the countdown on December 1st.
What will you use as your advent calendar this year?
