The Friday Five: Advent Calendars

Well, okay, tomorrow is December 1st so I guess it’s appropriate to start the Christmas countdown. When I was growing up the only advent calendars that I ever had were of the chocolate variety – yum! Has an advent calendar been part of your Christmas tradition? Have you crafted one this year or do you have a store bought one?

    We are doing the chocolate one and a story time one

    I think advent calendars are getting out of hand! I mean, lovely, if you have a bunch a free time…but these projects don’t really look like they are for the kids…more likely for us readers…


    I feel better…that was starting to get to me!
