The ABCs of Christmas….. A is for ADVENT

Hello all,

Welcome to my Christmas feature…. the ABCs of Christmas! The plan is that I shall post up a blog entry every day through December to help you through the pre-Christmas madness with some suggestions to keep your little one occupied.

So, today we’re starting with “A” and as it’s the 1st December I felt it was appropriate to share some advent ideas with you.

We don’t have a traditional advent calendar in our house, instead we have what we call the Advent Tree where we hang up labels with the date on the front and a small treat for each family member written on the back. The treats are often something simple such as writing a letter to Santa, going into town to see the Christmas lights, reading Christmas stories at bedtime, making Christmas sweets and treats together and so on. There’s always much excitement in the morning to see what our treat for the day will be!

Have fun and I’ll be back tomorrow with a suggestion for “B”
