Make the countdown to Christmas even more magical with one of these fun and unique Advent Calendars!
Advent calendars have always been a favorite Christmas tradition at our house. When my boys were little, they all waited anxiously for December first when I would put up all our advent calendars. Some involved treats, some involved family activities, some just involved hanging an ornament on a tree. All of them have made our Christmas season just a little more special.
I’ve compiled a list of over thirty advent calendars so you can either add to your collection, or start a brand new Christmas tradition. Some of them you can purchase all ready to go, some are kits, and some are links to sites with tutorials for making a DIY advent calendar. Have fun!
